    Surely to the horror of all third-party Wii accessory companies, Nintendo announced today the Wii Remote Jacket that will be given to all system owners completely free of charge. The Wii Remote Jacket is a silicon cover made specifically to fit the Wii Remote and "provide cushioning for the Wii Remote for people who might accidentally throw or drop their Wii Remotes while playing games." Nintendo will begin shipping Wii Remote Jackets on October 15, 2007. For Wii owners who purchased their systems prior to this addition, Nintendo will send free Wii Remote Jackets for their existing Wii Remotes. Click here if you don't have Wii Remote Jacket and would like to request one.

    Confirmed here as well.

    I enter my serial number, select number of jackets and region, clicked proceed and got a nice whopping 404.

    Nintendo tells me to wait 24 hrs before trying again. :ohwell:
