Injured Wii Owners Go For Nintendo Lawsuit Stephen Fung December 20, 2006 I don’t believe this… Green Welling LLP filed a nationwide class action lawsuit on behalf of the owners of the Nintendo Wii against Nintendo of America, Inc., in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. The class action lawsuit arose as result of the defective nature of the Nintendo Wii. In particular, the Nintendo Wii game console includes a remote and a wrist strap for the remote. Owners of the Nintendo Wii reported that when they used the Nintendo remote and wrist strap, as instructed by the material that accompanied the Wii console, the wrist strap broke and caused the remote to leave the user’s hand. Nintendo’s failure to include a remote that is free from defects is in breach of Nintendo’s own product warranty. Nintendo has already issued a Voluntary Replacement of Wii Straps with thicker ones as a precaution. As a Wii owner, I fail to understand how that strap could possibly break unless you’re a total idiot. Source: Kotaku Share This With The World!
