Overview : The Silicone Case design with high quality silicon plastic protection sleeve. Beautiful design and make you never worry about your controller being scratched.

Features :

Anti-skid design

Available color: Black, White

Quality/Usability : Similar to the Wii Controller Glove (http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46287), this 3rd party silicone case is here to help you sweaty palmers with your gaming.

The silicone case comes with two cases. One for the Wii Remote Controller and the other for the Nunchuk attachment. They are only available in white and black.

The quality of the cases isnt as high as the Wii Controller Glove. The silicone (rubber) on these is not as thick. But other then quality, its all similar. The cutouts for each button is exact. The only differences between this silicone case and the Controller Glove is that there is no "WII" imprinted, no glow in the dark or multi-color look to it. Also on the back side of the silicone glove, are indentations on the back. This gives you a better grip. Applying the case isnt as hard as the Controller Glove due to its thinness.

Since the Will Controller Glove does not come with a nunchuk attachment, there is nothing to compare it to. In order to get the nunchuk into the silicone case, you would have to put the cord through the bottom. Once thats through, just slide the rest of the cord until you reach the nunchuk. Applying the case to the nunchuk is fairly easy as well.

Conclusion : Overall, the Wii Silicone Case is a great necessity when owning a Nintendo Wii. Price is reasonable as it comes with a silicone case for the nunchuk as well. The quality of the case can be better but the nice addition to the underside of the grip is great. It would of been nice if there were more choices of color to choose from.
