In response to the class-action lawsuit that has been brought up
against them, Nintendo
has made a statement claiming that the suit is completely without merit
. This isn't surprising at all, considering Nintendo's pre-emptive actions before the suit was filed and the somewhat serious claims it makes. They said as such in short:
"At the time we became aware of the lawsuit, we had already taken appropriate steps to reinforce with consumers the proper use of the Wii Remote and had made stronger replacement wrist straps available. This suit has had no effect on those efforts," said the company.
The suit leaves an open-ended section for further recompensation to people affected by broken controllers, meaning that a lot more could be at stake than the cost of the controller, or perhaps the cost of damaged equipment. We've yet to hear if the suit will go forward, since it still must be approved.
