After people have hurled the Wii-mote across the room brandishing it like lemmings, Nintendo have brought out the Wii remote jacket.

The Wii Remote Jacket, a durable, silicone cover for the Wii Remote, provides a variety of benefits for the player. Nintendo will include the Wii Remote Jacket with all Wii hardware systems and with all Wii Remotes sold separately or packaged with Wii Play.

Hardware featuring the Wii Remote Jacket will begin shipping to retailers from October 2, 2007 and is expected to be on retail shelves from mid-October, 2007.

The Wii Remote Jacket provides a cushioning effect if the Wii Remote accidentally strikes a person or object or is accidentally dropped or thrown. Use of the Wii Remote Jacket is meant to supplement, not replace, the basic gameplay 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.

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.

Current Wii owners will get the Wii Remote Jacket free of charge.
