nintedno sued over controller rattle

#101megax11Posted 12/24/2012 9:01:41 AM
Humanity is so dumb and needs to be wiped off this earth, in my opinion.

20 kids dies before Christmas, and their family now has to hold onto the presents they bought for the kids that can't open them, and some dweeb is trying to sue a company because some buttons rattle?

Mine rattle too, but who gives a ****? Honestly, some people in the world...

Impossible.


C'mon man, you know it is possible. Some people have built very capable computers for less than 1K. You just have to be a smart shopper.

lol another class action suit where the burdens of American tax payers try to make a quick buck.

The words "frivolous lawsuit" make me cringe.

Tort reform is by far the biggest example of big business taking away power from the judicial branch (the courts and the civil justice system)


You do realize how amazingly difficult it is to file, go through, and live with a law suit?

Are you also aware that a lawsuit, or an increase in lawsuits in general has no direct effect on anyone's taxes? In fact, (what I think you're alluding to:) medical expenses increasing due to frivolous lawsuits against doctors etc. is almost a non-issue, and yet the Republican party with its business buddies continues to put caps on all sorts of damages, claiming that these caps will lower medical costs, and yet the insurance companies do NOT pass the savings on to the doctors meaning you get none of those savings, and on the off chance that your life was completely botched up by a malpractice incident, you are only allowed 100,000 dollars or so (depends on the state) for something that would cost 10 times more than that over the rest of your lifetime to attend to.

I'm sure you have this image of people who make a living off of going to trial lawyers and saying "let's make money big spender!" and hand each other cigars and light them with 100 dollar bills, but that's just the image large corporations WANT you to have, and pay billions of dollars each year through FAKE public interest groups to create ad campaigns to get airheaded voters to vote for tort reform.



I understand you probably just wanted to share a news article and pass along the lulz with a "omg lulz these guys are misusing the civil justice system"... but that is not for YOU to decide. It is for the COURTS to decide, and if the COURTS view the case to be frivolous they can PENALIZE THE PEOPLE FOR BRINGING UP A FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT!


Someday when your future child or grandchild is born with a disability caused by the negligence of the attending doctor to his/her birth, and you get smacked with a cap on damages of 100,000 dollars and you have to make that pay for all future surgeries related to the disability, all the special schools and the wheelchairs and the special speech pads, and then we'll see if you ever laugh at the civil justice system and perpetuate the LIE that the people behind the "Chamber of Commerce" (a front for big businesses) created ever again.


Sounds to me like the guy wants to hold Nintendo accountable for its actions. These types of lawsuits usually come after a back-and-forth where the customer is dissatisfied with the product, asks for a refund and/or for them to fix the problem in their production or warn people on the box that it will make a rattling noise etc., Nintendo probably ignored him or offered him some silly consolation and he is suing to get them to notice his plight.

You may view it as silly. So do I. However, this person does not view that rattling as something he can just "get over" and views the product as devalued because of it. He has the right to seek justice when he feels wronged. He is most likely spending a lot of time and money for a battle that he probably won't win... but I think he's more into getting Nintendo to put a warning on the box and plea bargain the cost of his Wii U system (a refund).


Sorry for the rant. You just try living with cerebral palsy in your family and the money you were able to get from your capped settlement ran out when the kid was 6 years old... then we'll see how upset you get when you see stuff like this on the internet...

There, now I think I can ignore this stuff for another few months before I burst again...

Personally, I think it is quite the jump to say that the rattling in the Wii U controller is worse than RRoD simply due to the fact that as far as I can tell, no controller has broken because of the rattling. So unless you have an article that proves that the rattling is an issue that could cause the controller to break I think you are just jumping to conclusions.

Edit: Also superbroadswd, that was pretty frightening...

I remember Game Informer's survey came back at 54% for RROD failure. I don't have a link, but it's easily googled. Seriously though, why would anyone need proof of this? It's pretty common knowledge and VERY well documented that the RROD was a huge problem with the 360. Even the most devout fanboys didn't argue that, and wouldn't argue that.


Yeah, surveys that are not IP locked are quite accurate.

Microsoft's quarterly reports don't show these huge losses as they would create if they had to replace all those Xboxs, use logic.


You use logic. No product in the history of retail has received such huge attention for a 3-5% failure rate. It never would've been worth mentioning to begin with if the number was that small.

I'm on my 4th 360. Fortunately I have a friend at GameStop who'd swap mine out for me when one would die. And everyone else I know is on their 2nd-4th one. I can't even call you a blind fanboy. You've got to either be trolling, or just a person beyond reasoning. The numbers you're suggesting are far beyond what a fanboy would claim.

It's the ABXY and START and SELECT buttons. Notice the rattle only occurs when you vigorously shake the GamePad and not during games such as Assassin's Creed III or Darksiders II. The only way to fix this is to make those buttons clicky.

I'm not going to respond to the content, just to the idiot TC that think class action suits are tax-funded.

don't forget back when they got sued by Tengen for having a monopoly on NES games.

It's sort of a tradition now.

@superbroadswd
It is a petty lawsuit and the person who filed it knows that. They are just looking for quick cash, people have gotten sue happy over the years once they saw they had an chance to rack in an easy million.
doesnt matter what the court says, its petty none the less.
