Nintendo gives a 3 language safety warning
For those that have ordered replacement wrist straps, shipments have started to arrive across America in the mail.
Well packed in nice bubble wrap, and identical to the original straps, except the cord that attaches to the remote is thicker and stiffer. Other than that as pictures have suggested earlier I can assure you that the rest of the strap is unchanged.
The straps also come packed with yet another warning from Nintendo! And not just any well packed warnings but in three languages no less; Stressing how to ensure an “enjoyable and safe play experience.”
I really do suggest putting this warning away in a safe place it will become a piece of Nintendo memorabilia and when you look back through gaming history you can say- “I was there when people broke their televisions in the name of Gaming”
The new three language safety warning on how to play safe is as follows:
Before setup and use of the Wii system, please review this safety information to insure an enjoyable and safe play experience.
1) Wear the wrist strap when using the Wii Remote.
Make sure all players use the wrist strap and that the strap lock is correctly tightened. When sharing the Wii Remote between multiple players, make sure each person using the remote properly uses the wrist strap. Wearing the wrist strap will prevent you from accidentally dropping or throwing the remote during game play which could damage the remote or surrounding objects, or cause injury to other people.
2) Do not let go of the remote during game play.
For example, in a game like Wii Sports bowling, the ball is thrown by simply releasing the B Button on the remote, not by letting go of the remote! Hold the remote securely and avoid excessive motion during game play. If your hands become moist, stop and dry your hands. Excessive motion may cause you to let go of the remote and may break the wrist strap.
3) Allow adequate room around you during game play.
Stay at least three (3) feet away from the television. Make sure objects and other people are out of your range of movement or arm motion to prevent damage or injury.
