First Wii commercial aired on US television - November 14, 2006
Wii release date - November 19, 2006
Based on that alone, I'm not surprised there aren't any commercials yet. Most of their products don't even get advertised until they are released.
Quick Amazon search already shows others popping up, including "clean and protect" kits.
I've seen a few different brands for screen protectors, so far, listed at gamestop and other retailers. A day one buy for me is going to be the nerf armor, along with a screen protector, since those things have saved my kids 3DSes from numerous 2 story falls. If they aren't going to be selling the controllers separately for a while, I have to make sure the one it comes with is fairly kid proof.
Thanks for the info, guys. I honestly didn't even think to search for them because I figured nobody would be selling them yet.
I only trust Hori brand items.
I've found that people who have had bad experiences have dealt with knock offs
I bought them directly from Amazon, not a third-party seller. I'm sure it's possible for them to sell knock-offs, but it seems unlikely to happen twice on different consoles. And the packaging and product seemed to be very high quality; I just wasn't pleased with the application, look, or feel of the protectors. I have personally had more success with Skinomi.
Nintendo never advertises early. They wait till like a week or 2 before something comes out to advertise it. I didn't see any Kirby Collection commercials till the day it came out.
Exactly. Wii commercials didn't start airing in the US until about 4 days before it released!
I believe there was a fire which destroyed their manufacturing plant in China.
The fire was in Japan at a production facility and the building wasn't destroyed. Nintendo has said that it won't significantly impact console production, although I suppose we can't really know for sure.
