Houston, wii have a problem...

This site is awesome.

I'm really surprised that no one considered the inherent danger with giving gamers objects that require any sort of physical coordination.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that gamers have a fairly good grasp of the eye-hand coordination. However, when those are the only 2 parts of the human body that they use regularly, body kinesthetics aren't that high on their list of skills. In fact, the nunchuck and bowhunting skills on their resume are purely of the digital variety from playing too many MMORPGs.

But I digress. I think Nintendo, in facing the fact that these systems are expensive and only profit after users have bought several games, decided to make something that would break often and need replacing. The genius is that whatever happens is NOT THEIR FAULT. It's geniuses that swing their 'sword' or 'golf club' too hard and chuck the remote out the window or through the TV.

And now there's documentation.
