“Of course before the launch of the Wii hardware Nintendo had a number of tests on the durability of everything including the strap,” Iwata told reporters in Japan. But our understanding right now is that even beyond our expectations people are becoming more and more excited playing with the Wii.” - Satoru Iwata
“We are encouraging people to understand that you really don’t have to be so excited but rather you need to understand the control and then you’re going to be the best player. We are looking into the situation to see if there are additional methods to encourage people to kind of calm down so they would never throw away the controller itself.” - Shigeru Miyamoto
You mean waving my arms around like crazy, and using the biggest amount of force possible doesn’t make me the best player?! Why…why…this is outrageous!
