Free Wii glee

Yay for the Nintendo Wii. Now it has its own version of Mario Party there really isn't any reason not to own one...assuming you don't mind the way it plays it part in many vicious and violent injuries. And now even the health-hazard aspect of the gaming glory is at risk.

The far-flung lump of hard plastic known as a Wiimote now comes with a jacket, both to aid grip and lessen the physical imprint of inadvertent blows. Those of us vaguely-earlyish adopters need not suffer though - Nintendo's handing them out like candy.

Fill in this form, the only tricky bit of which is that you need the serial number on the back of your Wii to do it properly, and supposedly in the next 6 weeks you'll get a nice parcel of Nintendo goodness. Kudos for the freeness.

More plaudits go to Nintendo for their description of the object d'art. Check it:

Nintendo recommends players use the new Wii Remote Jacket as a cushiony shield,

Is it just the Poorhouse, or is the phrase cushiony shield one of the finest adjective-noun combos known to man? And it's too rare - more cushionyness is needed in the world, although by the looks of it Nintendo has doubled the number of Google results for that phrase in one easy product launch. Winners, all round.

Tip-off source: pretty sure it was Chris of Sainsbury.org fame.

PS: Apologies if anyone figured from the title that this post was going to lead you to getting an actual free Wii console. Unfortunately finding something that rhymes with "remote jacket accessory" is too much effort to not take the obvious option.
