Nintendo Wii released in Japan, first TV victim

5 12 2006

Although the Wii has been out here in the US since November, it just came out in Japan. Continuing the great sales of the Nintendo DS, the Wii is reported to be sold out in Japan, selling 400,000 consoles in a matter of days.

Due to the physical nature of controlling the Wii via the wireless Wiimote, there’s already been a television casualty. The person posted a picture of the TV on her blog.

Apparently, it was match point and she was going for a forehand winner crosscourt, but the wrist cord snapped. The Wiimote flew at the TV and damaged it. (I made that story up.)

Lesson for today? The Wiimote is a dangerous weapon that can injure people and electronics.
