    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.

    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.

    From: Nintendo
    To : Possible Dummy
    Subject: "Important Instruction"
    Message: "Hold the remote during play." (with graphic of a hand holding the wiimote...just incase they want to use their feet/mouth)

    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).

    Hi folks, new here and posting from my wii!

    As for the strap, common sense should prevail. That said, ive hit the light fitting more times than i care to mention playing wii bowling!!

    yeah when i first heard about people loosing grip on their remotes and breaking stuff i thought how stupid can you be...the next day playing tenis, i think, wham loose grip of the remote. Thank you wrist strap, instead of breaking the tv i hit myself in the face. But still i dont see how someone can blame nintendo for any of this, its the users falt and thats it. I hope these ass hole law firms in cali loose alot of money on their stupid lawsuits they refuse to drop even with the strap replacement agreements.

    Nintendo Liability

    My friend Dave has hit my son at least 10 times in mid-bowl. I might have to sue Nintendo if he grows up to be a slouch who sits around and plays games all day instead to reading books.:smilewinkgrin:

    Ok, first, You CANNOT sue Nintendo. You will probably lose money. Nintendo has put warnings everywhere, they offered FREE replacement straps, wut else do you want. It's not their fault you ignored their warnings or didnt get the replacement strap. My point: Nintendo is not responsible for the stupidity of gamers. And I kind of think it would be funny if i hit one of my friends with a wiimote. That would teach 'em!
