    I know Wii Sports comes in a sleeve (Like MPH Demo with the DS) but in this picture it's in a proper box:

    Why is that?

    I heard the European version will be in one of those DVD boxes.

    BTW, my MPH demo also came in a regular DS box. Maybe it's an european thing...

    Hope it is a European thing. I hate the little sleeve [​IMG].
    EDIT: But how come that US guy has a box?

    Thats is odd, because that appears to be a US ESRB rating on the front.
    I know that PAL are getting a proper box and of course the Japanese did aswell.

    1 - Get a custom cover on the internet
    2 - Print it
    3 - Buy a white DVD case
    4 - Slide the custom cover on the DVD case
    5 - ???
    6 - Profit!

    EDIT: Here

    With MPH-first hunt the US version was a sleeve, whereas the Europe version was in a DS case (I have both [​IMG]). Prolly this is the same...

    I think it's custom. Maybe it's just my sight, but it seems that the cover itself is a little bigger than the other ones (less white parts near it). [​IMG]

    PAL regions get Wii Sports in a proper case (Europe/Australia), I believe Japan does too.

    That case there is the printed out one, not an official case.

    Yea, I have a custom Wii Sports case and it looks exactly like that. You could have easily told it was a custom if they showed the pack, which is lacking the UPC and other stuff shown at the bottom of game cases.

    I downloaded the cover from The Cover Project and ordered an extra Wii disc case with my component cables from Nintendo's website a couple of weeks ago.

    I touched up all of the print and redid all the lines and borders on the cover, then printed it off on high-quality glossy white paper and cut it to size. Now you can't even tell the difference between it and a real official case, even when holding them side-by-side and looking very closely. If you take the covers out of your other Wii games' cases and compare, it's the same paper (same weight, thickness, glossiness, etc). It makes a perfect full-sized case for Wii Sports. People are always asking me where I got it from. [​IMG]

    The only thing my Wii Sports is lacking now is a full-sized instruction manual.
