Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has assured gamers that Nintendo is considering new ways of cutting down the number of Wii-related accidents that have occurred since the machine launched. Since Nintendo's console first became available to the public in November, there's been story after story of people accidentally flinging their Wii remote controls into plasma TV screens, other people's faces and through windows.
A bit like that time I took Samba de Amigo around to a friend's house and smashed one of his parent's lampshades to smithereens with a flailing maraca (that light fixture was far too low).
Anyway, many of these incidents have been blamed on the relatively weak strap that comes with the Wii remote control. Which obviously won't do. But thankfully, help could be at hand, with Iwata telling the Foreign Correspondents Club this week, "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."
Sod communication. A stronger strap would do the trick, Satoru.
