The wiimotes are very sturdy. I saw a video on one of the big game sites where they abused the Wii to see how it would hold up. They threw the controller hard against the wall, stood on it, jumped up and down on it a little, and it still worked just fine. Nintendo built the things to last.

Nintendo if anyone is the biggest idiot for creating a controller you wield around other crap trying to mimic real life. I can imagine all the law suits once a Star Wars game is released.

Wow, I'm convinced. Thank you for that insightful (or would inciteful be more appropriate?) and obviously completely unbiased view.

Definitely.

And we should be using car companies for giving us these vehicles that can collide and cause monumental damage when idiots drive. It's never the consumer's fault. It's always the manufacturer who is to blame for eveyrhing that goes wrong with a product.

Its not bias but Nintendo has been slipping under the radar with the Wii even though they have a terrible line up where the only standout is a port available on a cheaper console. Now people are having the wiimotes fly out of there hand doing what Nintendo says they should be doing and there idiots. And you may want to check out the massive recall thread right below this one.

I thought all of this wiimote vs. tv incidents were faked... until I witnessed my 6 year old nephew losing grip of the wiimote while playing wiisports (he didnt have the strap on his wrist tho) , it didnt hit my tv but it did fly forward and hit the bottom of the entertainment center , the sound it made was horrible I thought for sure the wiimote was damaged but it still works flawless.
