Nintendo Offers Free Wii-mote Jackets
After several incidents earlier this year involving several TVs being destroyed by wayward Wii-motes, Nintendo has decided to take some more responsibility for other people’s incompetence. Right now, they’re offering free Wii Remote Jackets to any Wii owner. Essentially they’re little silicone protectors for your Wii-motes that should cushion any damage they might inflict if hurled at a television set. You can order up to four jackets for your system, which will ship on October 15. On that date, all new Wii consoles will come packaged with the jackets as well.
So essentially, Nintendo is shouldering what must be a pretty big cost to ship out all these new jackets because a few people out there don’t know how to hold onto a remote properly. On the plus side, now you can get free protective covers for your Wii-motes at no charge. If you’d like to place your order, just head over to their website.
