There should be a contest for who can make the coolest strap.

Wii haven't had problem yet. :p I haven't even played Zelda yet, either.

Though, I've played about 7 hours in total the past 2 "wiiks" I have had it. :(

I always wear the strap, and hope to God that it doesn't break. No problems thus far..

I don't really see that as being a problem for me. I dunno I could be wrong though.

I haven't have a problem yet. And I don't plan on one either, considering the fact that I don't swing my controller like that, and even if I do like when I'm playing wii sports or something, I keep a tight grip on it.

I love looking through what the folks on that site have done XD It's amazing what one lil piece of plastic can do to a thick piece of glass on a CRT TV.

I think people are just trying to sabotage Nintendo and the Wii.

And at least 20,101 (http://www.gamefaqs.com/poll/index.html?poll=2584) people agree with me.

Yeah, most of these stories involve alcohol.

I can see how the strap can break but what I want to know is how f***ing intense are these gamers getting that the controler is flying out of their f***in' hand; and breaking their tv screen no less.

What's amazing is that several of them were playing...bowling??? :eyeraise:

Apparantly the Wiimote takes on the weight and strength of the bowling ball when you play Wii Bowling...

There are games on other consoles where the trigger button is sensitive to how much pressure you put on it. Does that mean you get a bear trap and attach it to your controller?

These people are idiots. Wii sports only registers so much acceleration (and it's not much). You don't have to sit on your couch and flick your wrist like a toolbox (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/11/13), but it's possible to keep the motion within reason and still have fun.

I'd be interested to see what exactly that string is gauged for. It wouldn't be hard to figure out. Once you know that, you can then see how much the controller weighs. From there, it's just simple physics calculations to figure out just how hard these artards are heaving the controller.
