The Wii Might Not Be Much Exercise, But Suing Nintendo For Self-Promotion Is
from the and-1-and-2-and-file-and-sue dept
The Nintendo Wii has been the subject of class-action lawsuits before, but this could be a new low: some guy now claims he’s preparing another one for the company to deal with, because he alleges Nintendo misrepresents the Wii as a fitness tool when it actually contributes to obesity. He equates Nintendo to tobacco companies misrepresenting the safety of their products, but as Engadget points out, he’s not just some do-gooder concerned about the health of America, he’s also somebody who makes his living from it, and apparently has a fitness radio show that’s about to launch. Somehow it’s hard to imagine this suit will get anywhere; but we also imagine it was never really meant to anyway.
