As many of you know, Wii Sports does not come in a standard Wii case, but rather a cheap, flimsy cardboard sleeve. This is unexceptable. Thus I'm issuing a challenge to the members of Cheap Ass Gamer.

I know you guys are very creative and highly talented. Certainly more so then I am. We need a slip cover for a DVD case for Wii Sports. I know someone here will come up with a really good one.

Ok, I'll stop talking like that now.

I'm too lazy right to try to whip something up, but I'm sure somebody can do this. Where's Moxio when you need him? *Moxio Alert Call* I'll to take a stab at this tomorrow though.

Seems like Target is the best bet. I haven't been yet, but I keep hearing about the white DVD case that some DVD demo comes in. I'm gonna grab one tommorow after school.

That is pretty good! I never printed a cover before.. so are these already sized for it?? All I'd have to do it just.. print it and then everything would be just fine?

I have a preview disc from Target... so, I have a white case :)

Lo-res covers makes baby jesus cry.

Don't expect those to look good printed out. 72dpi is unacceptable. I'll be making my own.

Man, if they're gonna take the time to make a cover like that, at least put the controller designs in the corner properly. Needs to be a "4" remote and the nunchuk.

It's special. You can't have it.

In all seriousness, once someone gets the game and some scans going, we'll do this. Remember, 300dpi or higher, people. 300dpi.

I'm in the process of making one. Obviously, there havent been much Wii SPorts images. Even if someone was to scan the Wii Sports, it wouldnt be that good as to the stock digital images that Nintendo should release.

Nintendo doesn't really offer up high resolution cover art for their games. You might get something of decent size, but not printable. The best bet is a scan of the sleeve and manipulated to fit on a DVD insert.

Try your local GS/EB. I stopped by GS to pick up Trauma Center and they were cycling out a lot of the display cases. I guess they had more Wii display cases than they needed so they were going to pitch them. Saved 2 from the garbage and asked for them to hold any more they were going to get rid of...

I didnt mean actual cover art but I meant images in general.

That's a great idea! I'll try there tomorrow.

Chances are that once the Wii is released, Nintendo will probably sell Wii cases in their online store since they sold the GameCube cases there, but getting them for free from EB/GS would be even better!

I guess the Mii character on the spine fits perfectly. Regardless of who it is.. the Mii characters ARE the characters in the game. Hurry up, I wanna print this LOL ;)

I thought about putting me on it (i wear glasses) but decided to just make a normal Mii character since it goes along with the game
