Not only does the Xipper make opening up the plastic wrapping on CDs and DVDs a cinch but it will also force many standup comics to get rid of their “hard-to-open CD-packaging routines” so really the device serves many great purposes.
The Xipper comes in a set of two and includes both a CD and DVD version and presumably the DVD version will work fine on most console game packaging as well. Pressing the button on the Xipper will release a safety mechanism causing a very small blade to extend and as you pull the device along the edges of the case it cleanly slices through the plastic wrapping making it easy to remove.
The Xipper CD/DVD set is available at Solutions for $7.95 or you can buy 3 or more sets for $6.95 each. Also looking at that product shot I find it odd that anyone would even want to open a Mannheim Steamroller CD, let alone using a tool that would make it easier.
