Well you don't have to be off a high place to break your foot.

Also, OMG People play Wii FIT??

I'm sure there's still some people first getting Wii Fit now. It's "evergreen," as they say.

Still, I can't imagine any scenario that results in a broken foot.

IanCube3170d ago

Wonder if someone pushed her during some crazy Wii Fit party or something.

See, if something "tragic" happens on a video game then people thinks it's game's fault, But oh boooy, no one would have got mad at stairs if the boy tripped and broke his foot on it.

Who here actually know's someone (or is someone) that has gotten hurt playing Wii?

I always see stories, see YouTube videos, but have yet to actually know anyone...maybe all my friends are just too coordinated.

Theonik3170d ago

Don't know anyone that got hurt playing the wii but i have seen some pretty nasty wii accidents. Most of them have to do with objects such as ceiling lamps etc.

IanCube3170d ago

She gets my vote too.

I can't wait to see what happens when Natal comes out.

Ninji3170d ago

What was she doing out of the kitchen?

Chnswdchldrn3170d ago


naw jk, but im surprised there is no talk of one in the article

IanCube3170d ago

Well I think the article was more focused purely on medical issues and injuries, but good point.

I wonder how much a great lawyer could get out of Nintendo for this?
