CES 2008: Replica Halo weapons get CES launch

For every Halo fan that has fantasized about being part of the action, a line of three Halo replica weapons is about to make that dream a reality...

The Covenant weapons boast Laser Pursuit technology and perform "just like" the ones from the game with vibration, sound, light and even recoil.

These weapons also offer "realistic" game-like features - so for example when the Plasma Rifle overheats the heat exchange flanges open from the side.

The three models available are the Plasma Pistol, Plasma Rifle, and announced at CES and coming in 2008, the Covenant Energy Sword.

Halo gamers can grab the guns, and thanks to the infrared beam and included target (a small square box) can recreate Halo action with friends.
