    Just read the article on Yahoo! News http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061207/ap_on_hi_te/japan_nintendo_wii and visted a site a friend told me about http://www.wiihaveaproblem.com/ .

    My question is does the Wii really have a problem? NO some of the players are the problem!!! I think it’s ridiculous. Why in the world are people throwing the remote out of there hand? Better yet, why are they throwing it that hard and relying on a wrist strap to catch it? This is just crazy. The people who break there TV's deserve to have it broke! I actually don’t even use the wrist strap for some guys. I think some of these people need to take a chill pill and the media needs to calm down a little. There making something out of nothing... Just my take, what do you guys think?

    most of it is caused by the people that play it howveer there is a couple of issues that the nintendo wii has had but there are very little

    They should have included a short video with the Wii showing people that they don't have to swing the remote like a mad-person to make it work.

    Wii Remote Training

    Maybe they need a training program for the Wii remote and you can't start playing games on the Wii until you pass the test! Haha, starting to look that way ain't it...

    Wonder if those people breaking there tv's are using the Wii remote that viciously when browsing the menu. I can see someone acting like they are sword fighting just to go to the photo channel :lol:

    I am sure that the wii straps need to be more durable, but ofc its people's mistake if they are too excited to forget to wipe their hands, hold the remote tightly, etc. However I pitty all those broken things :(

    HA! I was playing Wii Sports tennis at my uncle's house a couple days ago and the remote flew out of my hands to my left and would've hit the wall really hard if i wasn't wearing the safety strap. Haha... :D

    Oh, and then i got a headache playing boxing against my cousin... haha! AND I WON! WOO! er... WIIIIIIII!

    I agree, it is totally rediculous. The sad thing is that it was on the news here last night, and it made me laugh how stupid some people are.

    I have to agree. Americans are dumb LMAO well not all but I have my Wii now and it rocks. Even my 10 year old bother can keep hold of it without the strap. They're noobs
    Though Nintendo have admitted that people have gotten over excited and they are reviewing the straps
