    The "controller glove" could just be a protective sleeve to store the regular remote in when you aren't using it.

    It sucks to see that Nintendo is still massively overcharging for their video cables, but it's very nice to see that you don't have to special order the HD cables anymore.

    i think the sling bag is from my company. it's really just a lame little messenger bag carry case thing. it's actually nicely designed, jsut kind of pointless...

    I bet these will be shoved in a back corner of the store just like all the local gamestops do to their GBA/DS/GC stuff. I wonder if Sony and MS pay them to do that.

    Actually, word on the street is that Wii might be in the front of EB/Gamestop stores. And yeah. I'll bet there is some payment going on somewhere.


    Anyway, $60 for a f*cking component cable?!?!?! Pffft! I may buy it eventually, but Im not buying it the day I get my system... maybe the week after when I want to play with the projector. :p :D
