Wii Remote Jacket


So this was dropped by the postman today. I originally derided Nintendo's decision to spend millions of dollars making this when they can probably spend much less translating MOTHER 3. Well after an incident last month when a over enthusiastic (none-gamer) guest almost broke our Wii remote by slamming it onto the ceiling, I decided to place an order for two of these silicon Wii remote jacket. Honestly my impression on this product is that these are still useless and fugly. It is fat and makes the perfectly weighted Wii remote heavy, making gaming a chore. And to further prove my point on how much money Nintendo is wasting on these, included in the package is a four page user's manual on how to use the jacket!

Anyway people with common sense need not use this, but we will still force newbs and guests to use them.

A manual?!?

Nintendo's love affair with the non-gamers continues...

HAH! My Wii came with one of these, and yeh i admit they are good for little kids when they insist on playing the "nintendo" when they come round (with their greasy mitts), but they're so annoying. Especially as you have to take the thing off to put batteries in the Wii-mote.

Did you read the manual on how to change batteries with the jacket on?
