The Top Shot Elite is the first light gun for the Xbox 360. It was designed by Red Octane, the creators of the original Guitar Hero guitar controllers. The aiming works the same way as a Wiimote (you're moving a cursor rather than the screen flashing white to determine where the gun is pointed like older light guns used to do). The gun is wireless, runs on 2 AAs, and also comes with a wireless sensor bar that runs on 2 more AAs. It has two analog sticks, one at the handle and another on the left side of the barrel. On the opposite side of the barrel is a d-pad. Cocking the shotgun generally reloads in games. There's also a scope, which is tinted red and not that useful IMO. It's a great gun though. Currently you can't buy it alone, but it's bundled with Dangerous Hunts 2011. As more games support the Top Shot Elite, they will be posted here.
Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011
The Top Shot Elite is bundled with Dangerous Hunts 2011. The bundle retails for $80, though it's on sale for $70 at Amazon right now. DH 2011 is the first hunting game ever to feature a fully cinematic story mode, so it's more of a real game and less of a niche title. It also includes arcade-style shooting galleries that support up to four players (additional players use standard controllers).

Cabela's North American Adventures
The second game to support the Top Shot Elite is Cabela's North American Adventures. It retails for $40 and is a pretty standard hunting game. It has local 2-player and four-player online play.
