To update [Tue 3rd May, 2022 03:15 BST]: Unsurprisingly, this is not an isolated case. It seems there are other Switch users out there who also don’t bother wearing a Joy-Con strap while gaming Nintendo Switch Sports. Here’s another one that has gone viral (via Reddit):
Original story [Sat 30th Apr, 2022 16:30 BST]: Before the release of Nintendo Switch Sports, Nintendo warned players to be careful. Even so, and less than 24 hours after the game’s release, a TV was already on the receiving end of a Joy-Con.
Twitch streamer 63man was live-streaming an online tennis session as he threw the Joy-Con straight into his TV. After the incident happened, to chat about sending the clip to the Live Stream Fail subreddit (via VGC), the streamer joked:
“If you don’t send [that clip] to live stream fails, i am actually disconnecting from this chat”
As previously mentioned, Nintendo has advised all Switch Sports users to wear the armband while playing:
“[For parents] For your own safety, please accompany your child while playing Nintendo Switch Sports. Please be careful not to hit the children playing together or the Joy-Con on the TV.”
“Besides, when you play Nintendo Switch Sports, attach the strap to Joy-Con and lock it, then tighten the stopper to keep the strap from coming off your wrist and press firmly.”
The same type of scenarios played out during the Wii generation Wii sports. Nintendo even improved the straps and released plastic cases for the Wii Remote to soften the blow.
So yeah – be careful when playing this one… did you wear your wristband during your Switch Sports sessions? Tell us below.
