"to prevent potential injury or damage" couldn't they just make a standard controller and stop trying to be "different" lol

Let's not try to be different. Let's all conform and maybe the industry will grow of its own volition! /end sarcasm

Still, I think this jacket is not so much as to improve safety as to improve Nintendo's appearance; to make it seem like they're very concerned about your vase or tv or friend's eye. In reality, I'll bet it's to quell any growing ideas of lawsuits from us greedy Americans.

I'm still getting them. I love free stuff.
