Nintendo Wii Remote strap lawsuit - How stupid are these people?

The Nintendo Wii is massively successful, bringing casual gamers into the industry, and making Nintendo oodles of cash into the bargain. But two years after release, an old issue has risen from the grave threatening to cost the Japanese company money and PR points. It seems those Wii Remote straps just aren't strong enough for some people.

Companies should be held responsible for faulty products or products that aren't capable of doing the job, but I don't think that's the case with the Wii Remotes. Out of many millions sold, a few people seem to have acted like complete retards and seen their controller smash into the TV or grandma's face. Is that really Nintendo's fault or is it the fault of the stupid gene?

Being the owner of a day 1 system having the launch straps my brain throbs in pain to understand how people are so ignorant that they not only are able to cause them to snap but also let go of the Wiimote itself. At a recent family gathering my bro-in-law and I were playing Madden on the Wii and decided to include the rest of the family so we popped in Wii sports and my garndfather at 72 experienced it for the first time and never had one incident......perhaps he is not sue happy?

if you throw your wii mote into your tv, your one dumb mother f*c*er, apparently its Nintendo fault for throwing it into your screen...

How difficult is it to hold onto the damn controlloer?

I mean seriously, if KIDS can play tennis and not lose grip of a tennis racquet then surely people can play the Wii without letting go of the controller lol.

I play strapless because i find the strap annoying to keep taking off and putting on and i have never had anything bad happen like throwing it into my TV or swinging my hand into anything ot hitting anyone. You would have to be plain retarded to do this.
