This is so funny, poor blokes TV
Its not the first accident I have heard about envolving the wrist strap, IGN have a dented wall due to a wrist strap breaking.
Oh, the inquierer.. they must be right
I don´t think they were really using the wrist strap.
Either way its a harsh way to take your tv out!
Advised all ppl who are gna get Nintendo Wii, dont use the straps, instead use rope or attach it to hand cuffs!!! you will be thankfull in the long run!!
Yeah, and they are naming the SomethingAwful.com forums as their source...
I believe the IGN reviewers video is real because the place the wriststrap broke on their video looks plausible. (poor connection between the thin loop and the plastic attaching the wider strap section)
But the TV one, not so much. Look where it broke, halfway along the string? With a clean cut? My first thought was the strap had worn through from the hole in the Wiimote but there'd be fraying along the string, not just concentrated on one point. Sorry not buying it. So while I believe there may be an issue with the straps, I think the TV guy is just hopping on the bandwagon attempting to get Ninty to compensate him for his TV that he broke by being a dumbass.
Oh shit. :/ My hands sweat 24/7 because of some decease.
Sc4rFac3d just make sure your not faceing your friends when you play it otherwise its gna be the first Wii Fatality!!!!
Guh? You people actually use the strap? And furthermore what kinda asinine movements are you performing that would make the wiimote fly out of your hand in the first place?
My sister and I were swinging it around all retarded-like while playing Wii sports, but it only took one time where we hit each others wiimote while swinging.. then we settled down and stopped needlessly flailing it about.
Yeah, I thought that was pretty hilarious
Talk about realistic games and total immersion
Add me to the ranks of the skeptics on this one. Either the TV was already cracked and they are going to try and stick Nintendo with a repair bill -OR- his friend was doing some jackass manuever like whipping the remote around in a circle really fast. Unless that controller strap was already partially cut it wouldn't just snap clean doing a "reasonable" motion.
At least read the source, the guy isn't even considering claiming compensation, he's just crying about the fact that his friend broke his TV with a Wii remote.
Psyfira doesn´t said that, she said that maybe the guy was hoping from Nintendo a act of goodness
alot funny news on Wiimote Accident coming soon
Hm, you've got to admit that "broken remote busted my TV" has gotta be a bash at getting Nintendo some bad publicity though. Maybe he's not claiming cash compensation, but dragging a company's name through the dirt with a made up story is a kind of compensation in a way.
I took the freaking wrist strap off on Day 1, it got in the way. Now apparently I'm glad I did, however...
This isn't Nintendo's fault, though. I just looked through the Twilight Princess manual and it clearly said "swing the remote GENTLY." If they truly did what it said, that strap wouldn't of snapped.
It's hardly as if he intended to tell the world, he just posted it on a forum he frequents, it would be like if it happened to me, I'd probably tell people on here and on GBATMW. He just made a conversation, everyone else made it into 'news'.
Dat wordt een hele hoop magnesium he
lol, zelfs dat helpt niet helemaal.
