That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard, what is this world coming to where we sue over everything just to try and make a quick buck.




Nintendo still doomed?

i find it rather uncomfortable to hold and use. its fine for about 15 minutes and then it starts hurting.

Its not extremely painful, sort of stiff and sore (my hand, please no jokes...i am being serious)

and what if it gives me carpal tunnel? or other problems like that?

what sort of duty and standard of care do they owe to customers using the product...especially for someone who might be more at risk for problems?

how much could i recieve in compensation if i develop a problem?

 

 

LOL reminds me of Macdonald's class suit because the coffee was too hot and the french fries have barbecue flavor and it upsets vegetarians. And other stupid complaints; in the end MacDonalds just give 5 dollar for any person who have stupid complaints.

 


This is off-topic, but you're actually wrong about both those cases.

Nintendo lost the coffee too hot lawsuit big time. This case is actually taught in law schools as an example of a case which might seem like litigation gone amuck but was actually decided 100% correctly. McDonalds had nearly no oversight for their ocffee machines. They were old and not very good and had no thermometers. McDonalds' coffee regularly reached up to 200 degrees farenheit. It was a safety hazer, and the woman was seriously burned by it. After that case, part of the ruling was that McDonalds had to overhaul their coffee machines and were required to put thermometers in their coffee makers that could shut down the heating system after it reached a certain heat.

As for the French Fries...they didn't have "barbeque flavor," they were flavored with meat. Ray Kroc long ago said this would make the fries taste better, and he was right. Unfortunately, when you flavor something with meat it's not vegetarian. When word got out about the process, which was never made clear while the fries were marketed as a potential "healthy" option that could be included with vegatarian choices, the outrage was understandable, as was the class action lawsuit, and McDonalds was required to stop flavoring their fries with meat.

Those were both worthy and correctly decided court cases. Suing Nintendo for a sore hand, however, isn't. 



My consoles and the fates they suffered:

Atari 7800 (Sold), Intellivision (Thrown out), Gameboy (Lost), Super Nintendo (Stolen), Super Nintendo (2nd copy) (Thrown out by mother), Nintendo 64 (Still own), Super Nintendo (3rd copy) (Still own), Wii (Sold)

A more detailed history appears on my profile.

Now now. You're assuming too much. Certainly.

It wouldn't be your first problem anyway. You obiousvly have a mental one also by looking at your last threads. Some fanboys makes you laugh at least but you make people cry.

Only if you could find a medical physician willing to do an examination with the appropriate documentation, x-rays and most likely an MRI (average about $800), which would be more suitable for diagnosing the type of nerve damage you seem to be complaining about. And then the physician would have to document based upon his/her findings through the examination that use of the Wii was specifically responsible for your "condition."

Without these, you don't have a case.

Legal fees for such a case wouldn't be cheap either, unless you know of a good attorney who specializes in these types of cases and is willing to work pro bono.

If the ergonomics of the controller don't suit you, try changing your grip. While I'm sure you're not the only one to have discomfort issues with the controller, it's hardly a liability issue until proven otherwise.
