Nintendo Says: Don't Let Go Of The Wiimote

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Nintendo respond to the dumb gamers that forgot to hold onto their Wiimotes, its that simple people!

Just incase you didn't realise, when you swing your Wiimote around, you shouldn't let go of it. All sorts of Wii-accidents can happen, from simple TV explosions to broken noses. Please be careful with your Wii!

"Wear the wrist strap. Make sure that all players using the Wii Remote are wearing the wrist strap and that it has been tightened using the strap lock. When sharing the Wii Remote between multiple players, please be sure each person using the Wii Remote takes the time to properly put on the wrist strap. Wearing the wrist strap will help prevent the Wii Remote from flying across the room if you accidentally let go of it during game play."

Mmm k, anything else?

"Hold the Wii Remote firmly and do not let go. Even while wearing the wrist strap, make sure you don't let go of the Wii Remote during game play and do not use excessive motion. For example, in Wii Sports bowling, the proper way to let go of the ball while bowling is to release the "B" button on the Wii Remote—DO NOT LET GO OF THE Wii REMOTE ITSELF. If you are having so much fun that you start perspiring, take a moment to dry your hands. If you use excessive motion and let go of the Wii Remote, the wrist strap may break and you could lose control of the Wii Remote. This could injure people nearby or cause damage to other objects."

Ah okay, so when I swing the Wiimote I simply hold onto the thing, I think I understand now.
