Remember the Wii-era? When there were regular reports of people throwing Wiimotes through their TVs? Well, thanks to Nintendo Switch Sports, we get to laugh at — err, I mean, practice empathy for — more unfortunate souls who are breaking their TV screens.
This story almost writes itself.
As expected, there are a number of Nintendo Switch Sports players who are ignoring Nintendo’s safety warnings and causing some damage. Switch owners who can’t be bothered to use their Joy-Con’s wrist strap are already reporting broken and busted TV screens from losing grip of their Joy-Cons while playing the new Sports title.
While the Joy-Cons aren’t nearly as large or as heavy as the old Wiimote, they can still cause some damage.
Twitch streamer 63man discovered this the hard way.
63man isn’t the only streamer who has eschewed the wriststrap and lost a Joy-Con. Northernlion practically launched his Joy-Con into space while playing volleyball.
But it’s not just the Joy-Con that might break your TV this time around. While IGN was testing Nintendo Switch Sports, someone accidentally kicked their shoe into the TV.
Nintendo Switch Sports players, beware.
