The Konami LaserScope is a head-mounted light gun used with and licensed for the Nintendo Entertainment System and made by Konami. It was originally released in 1990 in Japan for the Famicom under the name Gun Sight.
Why it Sucks
- It's just a mediocre NES Zapper that's voice-controlled. To shoot an enemy, players have to shout "Fire!"
- If you want to shoot many times, you must shout "Fire!" constantly.
- False advertising: The accessory's box said that "Parents will love what they don't hear. While the LaserScope surrounds the player with the sound of exciting gameplay action, non-players can listen to music, read a book, talk on a phone or even have a conversation in the same room." This is utterly false, since players have to shout "Fire!" loudly.
- The accessory's microphone technology was so poorly designed, players can shout anything to shoot an enemy. Even background noise could cause the LaserScope to shoot as well.
