Wiimote strap saga continues: new straps untested says Green Welling

wii strapsWe hate court battles, unless one of the lawyers is Captain Kirk. But news is news so here goes the latest chapter in the class action suit against Nintendo.
As you probably know, unfortunate incidents caused by the Wiimote‘s faulty strap design have been popping up like zits on Nintendo’s face. Last we heard, Nintendo poo-poohed the class action suit since the company vowed to replace 3.2 million Wii straps with tougher Wiimote straps free of charge. So that should be the end of that.

But Green Welling is not so easy to please. The law firm claims the replacement straps are untested and therefore may not necessarily fix the problem. Plus they are looking into the damages inflicted by flying Wiimote’s on windows, plasma TVs, and other items. This is not covered by the current lawsuit and could be another headache for Nintendo. If Erin Brokavich is looking for a sequel, this could be it.
