Nintendo taken to court over faulty Wii wrist straps

Nintendo has been hit by a lawsuit concerning its faulty Wii console wrist straps, which the company recently promised to replace.

By CBR Staff Writer

Green Welling LLP filed the lawsuit against Nintendo because of the defective nature of the Nintendo Wii.

The Wii console was launched in the US on November 17, 2006 and, since then, there have been widespread reports of faulty wrist straps. Nintendo has been providing replacing straps for customers who request them.

A statement on the law firm’s website said, the class action lawsuit seeks to enjoin Nintendo from continuing its unfair or deceptive business practices, and seeks an injunction that requires Nintendo to correct the defect in the Wii remote and to provide a refund to the purchaser.
