Night Black Nintendo Wii

What better console for you and your chums to engage in some participatory horror interactivity? From the supernatural sensations of Alone in the Dark, Calling, Cursed Mountain, Dead Space Extraction and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories to the Zombie-splatting gore of Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, the Resident Evil series and the House of the Dead games, there are plenty of thrills and (blood) spills for the horror gamer here.

Black too goth? Try the new blood-red Super Mario edition Wii.

Crypt Grey iStyles Console Skins

Black console not morbid enough for the Witching Hour? Then slap down one of iStyles' more eerie stickers. Each "premium grade adhesive-backed cast vinyl" iStyle covers the upper surface of the console - or it's sides if you stand your machine that way - with graphics from the simply gothic to the out-and-out gory. The skins cost around £9.40 each and, with matching skins for your controller adding £2.50 each to the total, they won't break the bank. Or the blood bank... And not just consoles - iStyles makes skins from almost any popular gadget you can name.
