    Its kinda basic really, but I noticed that the problem of wiimotes going flying out of peoples hands is a big issue.
    So basically, I've just chopped the fingers off a pair of leather gloves.
    I only did this really for wii sports and such, but i suppose you could use them for any game on wii.

    The leahter would work great for grip, i think :p I havnt actually got my wii yet, im in england, but if anyone wants to try this out, and tell us how it goes?

    I've wanted to create my own custom gaming-gloves for a while now. I may have to get a spare pair of gloves just to do that.

    Like i said, its nothing special, you dont need to go round nipping and tucking just so they fit your hand perfect, just chop the fingers off, keeping the fingers on would be rather awkward to press buttons etc

    I have another remedy for flying Wiimotes. It's called under-dramatizing things. When you see and actor on an advert swinging the Wiimote as hard as they can, they are paid. Are you? No. It's no more fun than playing with moderate gestures.

    Of course i aint gonna go swinging it around like a madman, Its just precaution.
    I do get pretty sweaty hands when im gaming, so its worthwhile for me, just in case.

    this is a good idea, but of course you shouldn't be throwing it around so hard anyway

    Lol. I personally get sweaty hands when I'm playing against somebody tough. I beat Sephiroth on Kingdom Hearts 2 yesterday and I think I had a little sweaty hands then.

    Maybe it is just me, but I still have the little green tape on my wrist straps. I've never even come close to tossing it across the room. I mean....why do you need to shake the controller with such force? It just takes VERY little effort to do any of moving. Are you people swinging from the straps or what? Just hold on to the dang things. I can see if some one might have a physical problem where they can't hold stuff tight, but 99.9% of the people playing them should have not problem.
