NCS sold a bunch of Chocobo mugs and Chocobo cushions earlier this year. Then there were the Rubber Chocky toys which were well received. In a couple of months, Nintendo DS owners will get to wrap their handhelds in a bright yellow Chocobo skin, tap with a Chocobo stylus, and swing around a nifty cell phone strap adorned with Chocobo's bright and breezy countenance.
Then there's the Wii Remote Controller Pocket which is a little upright pouch which holds the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. That's it. There's no reason why something like this should exist but there it is. On preorder. Anyone can fashion a similar pouch from an empty tissue box, a wonton soup container, a paper bag, or the cardboard box that your GA-KO Alarm Clock arrived in. Sure it won't look as nice as Hori's rendition but the functionality is the same and the cardboard box is free. In any case, preorders are welcome for the Remote Controller Pocket which is available in three colors - white (shown), black, and lite-blue.
| Dreamcast DUX Delayed |

| No New USA Releases This Week |
Last week was slow for the Japanese market and this week is the slow period for North America. The market is equitable like that.
| Ice Spike |
We found this cup of water had formed an ice spike while in the office freezer this morning. Looks like a tadpole trying to escape.
