    According to Chinese gaming site pcgames.com.cn, Nintendo have hit a few snags in the Wiimote production tests.

    Here's a summary translation of the article:
    There has been some discussion about the reliability of the article, but no conclusive evidence either way as of yet.

    Interesting... I hope it doesn't postpone the release for too long though! Don't want Myers to forget about my pre order :p

    I certainly hope they come to some sort of resolve though, as one of Nintendo's Hallmarks of their products is their rock-solid construction. Seriously, have you guys seen the DS stress test video? the 64 or GameCube stress test? its pretty impressive and I hope they continue the same tradition with the Wii.

    well this is a possibility that they are having troubles because the Wii is such a new product....design and everything that they can be hitting problems they've never seen before......so who knows

    Not entirely sure about this. I mean, surely these kinds of problems would have been sorted out. Not forgetting the fact that the buttons are digitial, which means they're either on or off.
    Either it would work, or it wouldn't. Besides, the complaints that they're giving are more to do with manufacturing faults, and not to do with the technology itself. I doubt Nintendo will employ anyone to manufacture the hardware whom they thought were incapable of taking on the task. Besides, there is too many complaints about them to be taken seriously. Almost sounds like each individual controller is having it's each individual problem. The last thing we need is a hypercondriac remote, and I'm pretty sure Nintendo didn't say anything about it:D.

    I'm pretty sure this is fake. Besides, aren't Nintendo meant to be really far into the manufacturing process by now (as in further than the first few batches of the Wiimotes?). Likewise, what about the Wiimotes at E3? We didn't hear any of these complaints against them, and surely they would have been manuifactured the same way.

    P.S. Notice the spelling mistake of "sensitive" (as Sensative). Methinks this didn't come from an official source, and shouldn't be trusted...

    Okay just read what i0ns said. ITS A TRANSLATION. That means that whoever translated it made some mistakes. Thats all. Its not because theres some errors that its fake, or ''wrong''.
    Im pretty sure theres some problem with the controllers. I mean, thats kind of normal with a new technology like this. And as for the one at E3, I believe they were more cautious when they made them, now they are making tons of consoles to be shipped so they have less time to make sure every single controller are perfect.
    PS. In touch with the wii, Your talking about reliable sources making mistakes... You should watch yours too...:scared:

    Even so, it's not likely that someone can read Chinese but can't use a spell checker... Which means it's had the Chinese whispers effect (ironically), and anything and everything could have been exagerated or mistranslated.

    The fact of the matter, is that the Wii isn't using "new technology", it's using a combination of older technologies. Besides, as I stated before, it sounds like a problem with the manufacturing, rather than the technology itself.

    My money is firmly on this being false.

    Maybe that THIS article is false, but im pretty sure they do have some problems. Maybe its not the controller but with the console itself or w/e. Oh and yeah, by new technology I meant that it was the first time such technology were put together and used this way... for exemple ; its not like if they were making a DVD player, something that have been made before. Thats what I meant by ''new'' technology.

    I bet that is fake mostly, but I think that the controller might be a little fragile.
    And what Ezekiel86 said isn't completely true about the gamecube controller, believe me I know.I don't think they actaully are having problems though.

    What makes you so sure that they are experiencing problems? Shouldn't we assume everything is on target until we get confirmation that something is wrong (and by confirmation, I mean a legitimate source rather than rumour)? I see what you're saying on the technology fron though, though don't necessarily agree that its any more problematic (and I don't particularly want to get into a debate about it, so I'll leave it at that).
