People just can't seem to hold on to those rascally Wiimotes. All that swinging and sliding and handling must be causing great consternation. They say they don't like to use the wrist strap because it deadens the senses and is too restricting. So now you will be able to wrap your Wiimote in silicone, made for your protection.

Yes it sound extremely strange to me too, but Nintendo has announced that as of 15 October all Wiimotes will also include a completely bizarre and unstylish Wii Jacket. Read on for more about your new Wiimote condom.

The Wii Remote Jacket provides cushioning for the Wii
Remote for people who might accidentally throw or drop their Wii
Remotes while playing games. Use of the Wii Remote Jacket is meant to
supplement, not replace, the basic game-play instructions: keep a firm
grip, don't let go of the controller, use the wrist strap and make sure
your play area is free of people or objects. jacket.jpgThe Wii Remote Jacket also
serves as a cover for the Wii Remote. Nintendo recommends players use
the new Wii Remote Jacket as a cushiony shield, though the current Wii
Remote is a safe product when used properly.

 "We're always
looking for ways to improve our products and make sure everyone has a
safe and fun experience," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's
senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "Many
electronics manufacturers provide similar protective covers for
products like cell phones, PDAs and MP3 players."

Current Wii
owners who want to equip their Wii Remotes with the new Wii Remote
Jacket free of charge can go to or, or call
1-866-431-8367 to place an order. Nintendo will begin taking orders on
Oct. 2, and Wii Remote Jackets will begin shipping the week of Oct. 15.

Wii Remote Jacket is designed to be added and removed easily, in case
users want to slip their Wii Remote into an accessory like the upcoming
Wii Zapper.

So the last time they had a call or email for something program was the replacement wrist strap. A wrist strap which NEVER ARRIVED here. I'm sure the demand was just so great that they lost my request or something. Anyway, this is utterly ridiculous. I mean look at it, It's a french tickler version of a game controller condom! That's just ridiculous to me. Next thing will be anti-slip grip lotion called "No Glide" or something.
