Am I just puerile, or is it a British obsession with bodily functions ? I don’t know. Nor do I know if I should feel feel sorry for people at Nintendo over the name of their console, they seem to be playing up to it. The BBC reports Nintendo have advised people who have a Wii to “Avoid excessive motion” and “If your hands become moist, stop and dry your hands.”
Apparently there have been stories of the “Wiimote” controller flying out of people hands, the president of Nintendo commented on this “We need to better communicate to people how to deal with Wii as a new form of entertainment.”
You really couldn’t make this stuff up.
UPDATE I better not name the person who sent me the links http://www.wiidamage.com/2006/12/05/tv-skewered-by-wii-remote/ and http://www.wiihaveaproblem.com The URLs say it all. You know who you are, and I didn’t think you had time to spare for such silliness. .
