Super-glued Wiimote in Japanese kids’ hands becoming a trend?

the WiimoteSo, you were one of those lucky guys who managed to score a Wii during the launch. And you’re loving it sooo much that you can’t take your hands off it.

Well, some kids in Japan might sympathize with you. In fact, they have taken that “conundrum” one step further: Can’t get your hands off your Wii(mote)? Then glue it to your hand! It seems that it also solves the “wiimote flying out of your hands when you’re so engrossed in your game” problem.

Yep, that’s right. We got reports about Japanese kids using super-glue on their Wiimote so that it will be in their hands…forever. Or something like that. In fact, our source says it’s becoming a sort of like a status symbol among teens. Who knows? It may even become a fashion statement.

“I like the Wii controller permanently on my hand. I never have to search for it, and the other kids think it is cool,” said Yugi Tamagotchi of Tokyo.

Asked if kids in the U.S. will take the same route, Devin Chelsea of Cleveland Ohio says that “duct taping is more practical”, as you don’t have to buy a new controller when somebody else wants to play the Wii. Nintendo on the other hand, offers some kind of shatterproof cage for US$ 299.
