The Wii may be on its way to becoming the next Nintendo system to launch first in America, but at least the Japanese (and Japanese correspondents) can boast one thing: a first shot at owning their very own Wiimote.
And by that, I mean an actual Wiimote. Not a Wii controller that's being cleverly called "Wiimote." I'm talking an actual television remote control that was designed to look like a Wii controller.
Platinum members in Nintendo Japan's Club Nintendo rewards program were given two bonus gifts this year: a monthly wall calendar featuring artwork from Nintendo's biggest franchises, and a promise. The promise was that Nintendo would ship out a special Wii-themed bonus once the Wii (then the Revolution) was closer to its release.
The time has come, and the bonus is a Wiimote that's used not for controlling Wii games, but for controlling a television.
i gues this is allready posted but anyway... cool lol :)
