    yes because Nintendo always rush to keep the european market happy. Still waiting for them to enable the perchase of wii points using the nintendo stars that was announced about December time. If its like animal crossing we'll only have to wait two years.

    Well colour me surprised, they took their fingers out for once, must be the end of the world, I can now look forward to flying pigs, hell's first snowball fight and the sky falling on my head.

    Good for Nintendo, I've ordered four as I have taken part in a four player tennis game and there were a few near misses. So far I have seen a scuff on my ceiling, a chunk out of corner of a wall, a dent in a door and yelp from my dog as it got too close to a back swing. All of that without the silly sports pack attachments.

    Damn dangerous gameplay but immense fun - bring on the Light Sabre game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Worst I have done is hitting a baby in the face as he toddled up behind me during a game of tennis. No serious damage done though, and the mother was laughing!

    I ordered 4, even thus I only have 2 controllers... in case I get more or the jackets brakes over time.
    If I don't like them, I'm not going to leave them on, simple as that. Unless I'm having a party with 4 in a small room, or find it that it makes the wii mote even more comfortable. ;)

    OLD joke.

    Don't see how you could prove how many remotes you have. Taking a picture won't work thanks to Photo Shop and the remotes don't have serial numbers - at least not that I've noticed.

    With regards to using a charging station - yep, if you one of these jackets on (or any of the remote protectors) it will stop the remote from fitting into the charger slot. I would presume that the jackets will be easy to remove to allow access to the battery cover. I'll let you know when mine arrive.
