Ok, having actually played the Revolution, but not owning one (they sold out as soon as a new shipment came in) I'll give my input on this.
It's most certainly possible to break something with the Wiimote. Of course it's possible to do that with any controller if you get too excited.
I've seen people yank their consoles out of the entertainment systems on corded controllers, and I've seen other wireless controllers slip out of
However I've got to agree that it's not exactly easy to fling a Wiimote without trying. First there's the wriststrap, which can come off, but is
very unlikely to so long as you don't play with scissors around it frequently. But the thing that I think most people miss is that the Wiimote is
very, very responsive. Not so much that it's oversensitive, but enough where you really don't need to be swinging it around very much.
My expirience with the Revolution has proved to me that most of it involves very little swinging unless you feel like swinging. Nearly all of the
games can be played with a simple flick of the wrist. So my conclusion is that so long as you wear the wriststrap and maintain some self control
(which is a lesson parents should be teaching their children anyhow) your chances of breaking anything with the Wiimote are very slim. In short, play
smart and you'll be fine.
Now on to the theory of Sony having involvement with this. Very possible, it's not as if Sony is above doing whatever it takes to reduce the sales
of their competitors for their own self profit. Considering that Sony will gladly screw over it's customers for a profit (not that Sony is the only
corporation to do this) I wouldn't put it past them to try some underhanded means to hurt the competition. So considering that this is a conspiracy
based community I think that some of you need to stop the drooling fanboy demenor and actually think about it.
And as a final note, as much as I enjoy playing the Revolution I must say that the system that sells best is not nessesarily the best system for
gaming. I think that considering the PS2 sales compared to the Gamecube's sales last generation, the Nintendo fanboys need to stop citing sales as
proof of who's system is best. Same goes for Sony fanboys, now that their system is behind they're going to need to step away from the last
generation sales figures.
