    Some doctors have said that Wii fanatics have approached them about surgically implanting the Wii controller on their hands, but said while "technically feasible, would be ethically murky." Most concede, though, that it's only a matter of time before this happens.

    Gotta love these kinda stories!

    It gave itself away when they quoted a Yugi Tamagotchi, and seems pretty too dumb for tokyo, the 11 years old proby devised the wiimote to actually be mapped to their nervous system internally.....

    Hmm...That would have been really weird if that happened here...I wonder how they eat..Anyway the Yugi Tamagotchi quote made me instantly know that this was False...Unless a boy really had that name..

    well how about a glove with velcro on it and then you can put velcro on the bottom of the wii?

    maybe just velcro on your pinky, ring, middle finger of the glove and then velcro on the battery cover

    How about not letting go of the controller when you're swinging it? I guess I won't understand why this problem happens, until it happens to me.

    I ddon't think this statement is true, just because the Wii has not been released in Japan until this saturday (december 2nd).

    that's impossible unless these japanese kids have "connections" in which they can get a wii before the japanese launch date.

    people have reported the wii remote slipping out of their hand and breaking their tv plus their are videos of this on youtube.

    i think they just have a good sense of humor, i think its supposed to be funny read this it made me laugh out loud..."That system behind you looks like the PS3 we've already seen displayed at much every electronics show for the last year, how is this a different system?" asked one reporter.

    Kutaragi replied: "Well, as you can see, this has a 4 on it, and the other model had a 3.

    "As an alternative to super-gluing and duct tape, Nintendo has begun offering gamers a shatterproof cage to stand in while they are playing games. The Wii Cage is available for $299."

    That quote should have made it obvious to you guys that the whole article is a joke.
