Price List

Light­GunVerter - $90

The Light­GunVerter itself. This is the device that makes light gun games playable again. It comes with one user selectable cable free!

The options are...

  • Universal (Needed to use original light gun hardware. Works on any system)
  • NES (For playing light gun games on your NES with just a Wiimote)
  • Saturn (For playing light gun games on your Sega Saturn with just a Wiimote)

Additional cables are available to buy from the store.

All systems are compatible with the Light­GunVerter as long as they have composite video output (plug typically coloured yellow). Examples are NES (but not top loader), SNES, Master System (Model 1), Megadrive/Genesis, Saturn, Playstation, Dreamcast etc.

Additionally you are required to supply your own Wiimote and USB power supply. Powering from laptop/PC USB socket isn't recommended.

Additional Simple Cables - $10

Universal Cable

Use this cable with original light guns. One end plugs into the Light­GunVerter main unit, the other needs securing in the barrel of the light gun. BluTak works well for this. You will also need a means of attaching a Wiimote to the gun such as a 3D printable bracket or as simple as elastic bands.

NES Cable

The easiest way to play. Plug one end into the Light­GunVerter and another directly into your NES. Then just use any Wiimote to play classic NES light gun games. All NES light gun games are single player so only one cable is needed (although Light­GunVerter does support co-op, see Features page)

Master System Cable

The easiest way to play. Plug one end into the Light­GunVerter and another directly into your Master System. Then just use any Wiimote to play classic Master System light gun games. There is only one 2-player Master System lightgun game, Gangster Town! Only buy one cable unless you have that game.

Nb. Master System 2 doesn't have composite video output without modding your system.

Saturn Cable

The easiest way to play. Plug one end into the Light­GunVerter and another directly into your Saturn. Then just use any Wiimote to play classic Saturn light gun games. Most Saturn light gun games are two player so consider getting two.

Active Cables - Varies

Guncon 2 (PS2) - $17.50

New: Play Guncon 2 games on your PS2. Note Playstation games are complicated and there are three different light guns that work with it but are incompatable (Guncon, Guncon 2 + Konami gun) so check your game before buying.

More Cables To Come

A combined Playstation cable, a Dreamcast cable, SNES cable and an XBox cable are in the works so stay tuned
