Prince tries to ace some Wii marketing

Tennis equipment maker creates mini-racquets.

Prince Sports

After witnessing so many cheesy Wii accessories flood the market this year, it comes as welcome relief to see some decent equipment finally being made for the console. Prince has solved that problem, at least where Wii Tennis is concerned, with its own branded racquet contoller designed to fit the Wiimote snugly in its handle.

The pint-sized racquets, which come in various colors, put to shame accessories such as the Brando version introduced earlier this year. Given the Wii's enormous success, it's somewhat surprising that more sports equipment brands haven't gotten into the act for the obvious marketing value. But maybe they just want to avoid the attention of personal injury attorneys.
