In Other Wii-related News… December 11, 2006

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Odds and Ends, Technology, Video Games.

No sooner had gamers gotten their hands on the Wii that reports began spreading around the internet of flying Wiimotes and the damage they have caused to people and property. While Youtube is a popular repository of the video evidence, a much more amusing record of Wii-related maladies can be found on Wiihaveaproblem.com.

Personally, I think the pictures and write-ups are hilarious. The real winners are the shiner some guy inadvertently gave his girlfriend and the one shot of a Wiimote sticking out of a tv that it inadvertently impaled. I also appreciate the fact that the site keeps a running tally of the damage toll reported so far, which I would suppose is grossly underrepresented.

Mind, while I concede that the danger is very real, I am also of the opinion that people get into these situations by being a tad overzealous when they play. At best, these are really just accidents that can be avoided.
