Hey, are you looking to add to your Wii Remote collection this holiday season, or are you maybe picking up a Wii for the first time? If so, be sure to hit up Costco. As you can see in the image above, they’ve got stacks of black Wii Remotes that are bundled with both a black Nunchuck, and a black Wii MotionPlus add-on, all for $59.99. Yeah, you won’t find that price anywhere else.
THQ one-upped the President in gift giving by sending their latest Wii title, “Big Family Games,” to the Queen of England. They also shipped her a gold-plated system with Remote and Nunchuck. The company stated the Royal Family is the most important one in the country and therefore needed one. While this is great publicity for THQ, we wonder if the monarch will send them a framed portrait as she did for the First Family. And, by the way, shouldn’t they send one to them too, as Sasha and Melia are certainly at an age to appreciate the gift.

While we admit that some of us are overly pacifistic, we figure it is better to take your anger out on a video game than life. The Pega Shark Light Gun for Wii is 8.9 x 2.99 x 1.69-inches and weighs a mere 8.57 oz. Its trigger takes the place of the B key, while the functions of the others remain the same. Pega suggests that during a gunfight you use the nunchuck and Shark Gun together. The controller is available for only $10.86, less if you buy in quantity with your buds.

We’ll resist the urge to make an Oscar De La Hoya-and-fishnets joke and just tell you about these
boxing gloves specifically designed for Nintendo Wii boxing games. Just put your Wiimote and Nunchuk inside the gloves and inflate them. Now you can really live out your dream of being Muhammad (or Laila) Ali. Much like similar accessories for Wii Sports, fishing games, and even Cooking Mama, the gloves serve to add a sense of “realism”—or goofy fun—to your Wii-playing experience.
GoNintendo managed to score a bunch of Wii nunchuck pictures, including an apparent autopsy shot showing the controller disassembled. The image watermarks indicate that they come from a site called ChinaGBA, which appears to be completely broken under load at this time. Still, GoNintendo is hosting a good portion of the images locally, so gamers can get a look at some close-ups of the nunchuck controller while they wait for the original site to recover.
