Nintendo whacked with $5m Wii strap lawsuit

Nintendo has been hit with yet another Wii-related lawsuit. This time, it’s a $5m (£3.3m/€3.7m) action filed by a US mother who claims that the console’s Remote strap design is faulty and dangerous.

I have two remotes myself, version 2 of the strap that came with the Wii and version 3 that came with Wii Play. I have never had one of them go flying because I hold onto the remote and DON'T LET GO. I have been using version 2 for over a year and have had no problems.
