Looks like the big N has gotten slapped with a class action lawsuit for thsoe defective Wii-motes.Â In the recently filed lawsuit, GWLLP claims “Nintendo’s failure to include a remote that is free from defects” is, naturally a “breach of Nintendo’s own product warranty.”
I refer you yet again to the simple knowledge that a) it expressly says to use moderate, subtle movements and b) said people are not following any of the given directions/safety precautions.Â Most importantly, the claim implies the wrist strap is breaking while the Wii-mote is still firmly in the player’s hand.
What the fuck?!?!Â You mean I can swing my wrist with the force to snap a wrist strap? While we’re sueing people for defective equipment, what about all those X-Box 360’s that broke down and died anywhere from after purchase to 6 months later? Not only was that a (theoretically) similar situation, but Nintendo has been a lot quicker to try and fix the problem.
This whole thing is fucking ridiculous.Â The morons who have managed to get their hands on their Wii have videotaped themselves wildly swinging the damn thing about, striking objects and people.Â Nintendo, who have tried to do something new, innovative, and unique, are getting fucked while Sony and Microsoft churn out the same old shit for 2-3 times the price.Â And the entire time, its gamers like you and I who are footing the bill for this insanity.
I’ll buy a Wii when I can afford it.Â But as for the other swill, fuck you.Â My PS2 and X-Box 1 have more than enough of the same godawful crap you’re pushing year in and year out to keep me occupied until your current consoles come up with something to entertain me, and fuck everyone of you who are siding against Nintendo.Â This is what’s going to kill the gaming industry.
