Nintendo Probes Strap Problems
 
While Nancy Pelosi and the rest of our nation's leaders sharpen their subpoena fingers for the president and his cronies, a more important investigation is being undertaken by the good people of Nintendo.

According to Next Generation, the Japanese game-maker is organizing a probe into problems with the Nintendo Wii strap. As you probably know, the strap on the Wii's next-gen motion sensing controller has been known to break, causing the untethered joystick to fly through the air and (hopefully) smash into expensive plasma televisions and people's dumb faces.

"'We are investigating," Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata said. "Some people are getting a lot more excited than we'd expected. We need to better communicate to people how to deal with Wii as a new form of entertainment.''

Also, GoNintendo is reporting the replacement Wii straps are stronger

 

hahah nitendo back to the drawing board

This happening to people was inevitable.  The people breaking these things are just idiots.

Or maybe it's just the moronic people that can't hold on to a controller?  Seriously, I've played games into hour sessions, gotten my hands sweaty, and NEVER ONCE dropped the controller.  Of course I use my wrist strap anyway, but yeah...
 
Plus it's not the controller, it would be the strap, which wouldn't be very hard to fix.  They're also getting sued by some company that makes a device moderately similar to Nintendo's, but for computers as a mouse replacement.  Essentially they're sueing them because it combines pointing and a trigger button
 
So I have to say, some people are just stupid...or butterfingers

I've had the Wii since launch and I have no problems holding onto the Wii Remote (Wiimote). People that are getting into these accidents (breaking tvs and such) are way out of line, they are obviously acting like idiots while playing the WiiSports.

Nintendo didn't expect this. First, its the players fault for breaking it by going crazy. Second, nintendo already fixed the problem. The new wrist straps have way thicker string to attach to the wiimote.
