    Seen a few stories where people have injured themselves and broken TVs with the new Nintendo Wii.

    Nintendo could be in for a few lawsuits.

    That's stupid though, aren't you supposed to gently swing it around, and not lash out with it, I saw a vid on the tube with a guy who was playing tennis, and tried to do a serve like you do in real life, which resulted in a broken plasma, what an idiot...
