This is a good example of what it takes to break that strap.

So note to self, no sweaty gorilla swings! You aren't chopping down a tree here.

I love how Nintendo can do no wrong, They advertise there console as a system you can play by being fully active but when people start doing exaggerated movements like in the commericials and end up getting hurt, its their fault.

Anyone else rememeber E3 when they were playing Tennis by running around on stage and making large swing animations....
I gotta agree with Magus, yeah you're a retard for swinging the wiimote in exaggerated movements.... but, Nintendo is the one advertising and promoting those type of motions in their commercials.

See, there is a difference between exaggerated movement, and swinging like you are trying to cave in someone's skull. You can make a wide swing, without swinging with all your strength. You'd think this stuff would be common sense.

Are we comparing retarded commercials now? I'm sorry, but have you seen Sony's stuff? That weird schizophrenic baby doll that cries blood when it sees the PS3 damn near gave me nightmares.

I think you misunderstood me. I was trying to say that diving behind a couch is just as dumb swinging your hand as hard as you can. It's also just as easy to break the strap in both situations.

I actually don't follow. How would one break the strap diving behind the couch? They get it snagged on something?

I'm saying it's stupid erratic behavior; it's not necessary. And I don't see how you can't imagine breaking straps, or hurting yourself by throwing yourself behind a couch. The point is, everyone is saying that you can just sit on a couch and play the wii like any other console with slight arm movements.... but you don't see that in Nintendo commercials, they want you to get more involved in it.
