Nintendo faces Wii Remote wrist-strap class action lawsuit

Flying Remote hit wife, whacked TV, killed cat claims coming?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

US law firm Green Welling (GW) has filed a class action lawsuit against Nintendo, alleging the videogames pioneer breached its own product warranty by shipping its Wii games console with a Remote wrist-strap that breaks even when used as directed.

"The class action lawsuit seeks to enjoin Nintendo from continuing its unfair or deceptive business practices as it relates to the Nintendo Wii," the lawfirm stated. "The lawsuit also seeks an injunction that requires Nintendo to correct the defect in the Wii Remote and to provide a refund to the purchaser or to replace the defective Wii Remote with a Wii Remote that functions as it is warranted and intended."

GW is calling on interested parties to contact it via its website. Cue more - how shall we put it? - digitally enhanced injury pics showing hideous wounds allegedly inflicted by flying Wii Remotes. Have some people genuinely been hurt as a result of broken wrist-straps? Possibly, but proving negligence on Nintendo's part will be difficult. Ditto that damage to people and/or property is a direct result of a flaw in the Wii Remote strap. ®
