    Nintendo Tips: Proper Wii remote usage

    Given all the recent press attention regarding the Wii remote and its somewhat overwhelmed wrist strap, Nintendo have issues a fact sheet style guide on proper use of the Wii controller.

    The following tips are advised for safe play:

    * Always wear the wrist strap while playing.
    * Keep a firm grip on the Wii Remote at all times.
    * Make sure people and objects are out of the range of movement before play begins.


    Other things to keep in mind include:

    * Players should keep at least three feet from their televisions and should dry their hands if they become moist.
    * Remember that the Wii Remote is responsive enough to detect minor movements – so excessive and forceful actions are not necessary.
    * The motions made are similar to real-life sports games, but the force is not.


    These tips complement efforts already underway:

    * Nintendo has been replacing broken wrist straps for consumers who request them.
    * Nintendo operates a toll-free number and a Web site for customers to request replacement wrist straps. Consumers can call 1-800-859-4519 or visit support.nintendo.com to get a replacement wrist strap.
    * All new Wii hardware shipments include new wrist straps and a safety sheet.
    * Links about Wii safety are available on various Nintendo Web sites, including multiple links on Nintendo.com, Wii.Nintendo.com and the Nintendo World store Web site.
    * Nintendo sent an e-mail message to members of the MyNintendo customer-loyalty program about Wii Remote safety. A similar message will be sent each week to consumers who register their new Wii systems at MyNintendo.com.
    * Games include on-screen advisories about proper wrist strap use.
    * Nintendo includes an insert about Wii safety with all correspondence dealing with Wii product repairs and replacements.


    In the coming weeks, Nintendo will:

    * Send electronic messages to Internet-connected Wii systems to highlight key Wii safety points.
    * Update the Wii operations manual and the manual for Wii Sports with additional wrist strap cautions and specific game advice.
    * Update on-screen wrist strap advisories to include additional messaging.

    This is going way overboard in my opinion, next thing we'll see is some kid accidentally hitting his other kid friend and parents sue Nintendo.

    My friend actually made a rant towards me about how I don't use the wrist strap... I then spent 10 minutes explaining that I don't swing like an utter retard who thinks breaking his arm just to do a swing makes the ball go that much faster in Wii Sports. I then proved it and he cried

    maybe that's the reason they're doing all these crazy press releases. They're lucky that I don't work there. My emails would be simple.

    i'm pretty sure some people are doing that already. I'm hoping nintendo has somewhere written down that they are not responsible for any damages OTHERS have done.

    "what are you all talking about? You're not supposed to hold the wiimote, it's all about putting into the strap. " - what the flippin ********s are thinking/saying

    yeah, those people need to learn how to hold the wiimotes the right way. It's flipping rediculous, and before every game they tell you to actually hold the wiimote, but still use the strap as a precautionary. this stuff makes me mad each time (lives near people who make it a big deal).
