So some of the straps on the Wii’s cotroller are beginning to snap, sending the Wiimote flying through the air, often damaging TVs and other objects. Now the unfortunate souls this has happened to have decided to sue Nintendo for damages.
In my opinion, this is ludicrous. In order for these straps to break, and for the controller to go flying through the air, these people must literally be throwing their controllers! I don’t know why these people would let the controller out of their grip in the first place, but getting to into a game that you are throwing your controller? If you ask me, these people deserve to have their TVs break if they are dumb enough to let their controller go while playing a game. I would also bet no more than 50% of these people even wore the wrist strap while playing and just threw their controller on accident. Sure, the strap might not be that sturdy, but these people need to take responsibility for their actions. I bet these same people would sue McDonalds if they spilled hot coffee on themselves.
