It's no secret that the Wii is the most popular gaming console. People still line up outside of the Nintendo flagship store in New York City's RockefellerCenter, hoping to get their hands on one.

The popularity of the machine has also made Wii peripherals—a.k.a. the little gadgets and doohickeys that you can purchase to enhance your gaming experience—sell like hotcakes.
