In2Games bought, but not a word from founders

By on September 16, 2008 reports that In2Games has been acquired by Californian peripherals company PDP.

In2Games was founded to bring joypad-free gaming to the console. In the days when the Wii was still on the horizon, their Gametrak peripheral offered players the chance to box, play golf and generally intereact with their console (a PS2 only, if I remember correctly) using a pair of gloves attached to a thin wire (like a fishing line).

Since the launch of the Wii with its genuinely wireless Wiimote, they have been focused on launching a wireless peripheral for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

The press release, while gushing effusively about the future of the Gametrak Freedom technology, didn’t mention the management of In2Games at all.

Which doens’t sound promising for the future of In2Games’ staff.
