Woah! Are those replacement Wiimote straps? Hell no, but we thought they were when we grabbed a handful from the Opera booth. Turns out they're just Nintendo DS straps. Crap.
Honorable Mentions: Wrapped and boxed like a valuable oriental treasure, this 1GB thumb drive comes courtesy of Samsung. The drive itself would have been nice, but this box is a welcomed addition.
Alienware knows their consumers are serious about their computer hardware, so they were dishing out these handy multi-tools. The LED is a great touch, this thing is bound to be useful the next time I crack open my case.

The slant eliminates the "hunch" stance so commonly seen in the press room, and any relief from pain is welcome after a grueling week in Vegas.
