In a completely unsurprising move, some lawyers have filed a class-action suit against Nintendo following widespread reports of overzealous gamers breaking the wrist straps on the console's controllers and injuring themselves in the process. Nintendo's already replacing the straps with heartier versions, so somehow the suit's claim that it wants "Nintendo to correct the defect in the Wii remote and to provide a refund to the purchaser or to replace the defective Wii remote with a Wii remote that functions as it is warranted and intended" seems a little off. Of course, these suits are never about the class they're supposedly representing, are they? What's next -- a class-action suit on behalf of out-of-shape people who get muscle pains and soreness after playing games using the motion-sensitive controller?
