    On my way home, from school, i couldnt help but hear a convosation, between a mom, and her son.
    i hear her son say someting along the lines of "rich has a wii, can i get one mom" his mom replys "there the ones that, put the tv's in, enit? NO!".
    I belive mistakes like these, could cause our system to loose the next gen battle, nintendo should of considered problems such as these.

    I think I've figured out what the mom said.....but did she really talk like that? It doesn't make sense! lol.

    Did she say something about throwing the remote into the TV?

    If she was English and from the UK she probably did talk like that and that's probably what she said ;).

    lol, they already made the wrist strap twice as thick.. so i dont see why parents wont buy it for their child...
    i say nintendo needs to go more adult based like the news and weather channel has done so they buy wiis and the kids will play them

    Im sure if the remote through tv issue had never had happened the mom would have thought up some other excuse as to not buy her son one.

    KEPT adults FROM NOT buying consoles = Forced adults to buy consoles.

    Double negatives shall be your downfall, but I get what you mean, in the sense that adults would see violent videogames and say "Not for MY kids!". Hell, my parents still do that and I'm turning 16 in 2 months.

    I visited Florida in September, it was rather hot compared to the UK :D. I recommend London as it's the capital. If you like theme parks Alton Towers and Thorpe Park are your best bet. But I'm no travel guide :p ;).

    this wont effect nintendo's sales. if it does it will be marginal. nintendo arent worried over this at all lol. its mostly the ignorant ones that still think that playing wii is dangerous.

    Had mine for a month and ive had many people come over to play. i have had no incidents where the wiimote slipped...let alone having to depend on the strap....as klong as you're not drunk or under tha age of about 3...you should be fine. Not to mention the upgrades to the straps...

    dude, still doesn't really make sense... i know what ur saying but it's like reading an exam handed in by a three year old. pls double check spelling before posting... and if ur not sure use spell check, or have a family member (like ur Mum) check it for you. Thanks! :)

    I think that is a bit harsh!

    so before someone decides to make a post they need to double check there spelling.

    maybe the said person has a problem were spelling is concerned,also us mums dont always have the time to re-check spelling mistakes especially on a forum :rolleyes:

    also why you are on the subject of finding fault with others re-check your own... ur should this not be your :wink:

    Hehe. Funny posts. Maybe English is not his first language. Before you judge, how many languages do YOU speak?
    Anyhoo, the news tried to "hype up" the controllers flying out of everyones' hands and causing mass destruction to all of your electronic devices within 50 ft, as well as killing any living thing in it's path. It actually had the reverse effect because people thought, Wow! It must be really fun if the players are that into it!!
    I'm sure that Sony and Microsoft were hoping it was Nintendo's downfall. Ha!!!

    I really don't think that it is nintendo's fault if people are still throwing remotes into TVs. It was thier fault that they made an excessively thin wrist strap but they have remedied that. At this point unless the strap breaks again it's the users own fault for throwing it into a TV.
