PC Magazine reports: "Nintendo Co. Ltd. has some cautionary advice for players of its Wii video game console: when waving the controller, use the wrist strap, keep your palms dry and, whatever you do, don't let go. ... The Wii has been pitched as a cheap alternative to pricier machines from Microsoft Corp. and Sony Corp., but some gamers complain they are facing unexpected costs after losing their grip on the console's remote control and smashing their televisions and other appliances."
Some of these problems reported on this site are the fault of the users not using the equipment properly. The other problems are the fault of the manufacture not properly designing the strap on the Wii remote.
