Nintendo is now trying to get everyone to calm down and stop abusing furniture, window panes, other players and houseplants with its new Wii controller. Some Web sites are showing evidence of the damage that can happen when the controller flies out of a player's hands and hits nearby objects.
Just how excited could someone get? Here's a good example.
"Some people are getting a lot more excited than we'd expected," Nintendo President Satoru Iwata said, according to the Associated Press. "We need to better communicate to people how to deal with Wii as a new form of entertainment."
Well known Nintendo developer Shigeru Miyamoto reportedly said the company is looking for additional methods to get people to chill out.
"We are encouraging people to understand that you really don't have to be so excited," he said. Look for a lineup of Wii relaxation products at game stores in the future.
