Mom swats child with Wiimote. Or, Toys R Us pre-orders!

Either this kid’s been bad enough that his mother grabbed whatever was closest to whip him in a fit of gamer-induced rage, or Toys R Us is going to be offering pre-orders on the Wii this October 29. Since I doubt Toys R Us is in the business of planting video game violence of the literal kind in the pages of their Big Toy Book, I’m going to bet that the pre-order blitz is not yet over. Look for this in your local newspapers this Sunday (side note: check out that Platinum GC plus two games deal… Matt, it ain’t dead yet man!).
