Gamers smashing TVs with controllers again following Wii Sports sequel launch

Gamers are already smashing their TVs by accidentally throwing their Nintendo Switch controllers at them, just days after the launch of Switch Sports.

One streamer, 63man, was caught on camera flinging a Nintendo Joy-Con controller at his TV screen during a heated game of Nintendo Switch tennis.

The gamer appears to be in a state of shock after tossing the controller, which left a huge dent and multiple cracks in his flat-screen TV.

The game in question, Switch Sports, is the long-awaited sequel to the immensely popular Wii Sports.

First released in 2006, Wii Sports was one of the biggest bestsellers on the Nintendo Wii.

However, it became infamous as many players ended up smashing their TVs by accidentally flinging the console's motion controllers at their screens in the heat of the moment.

The problem became so widespread that Nintendo began replacing controller straps with thicker versions and adding safety warnings to the game advising people to use a strap when playing.

They even released a Wii Remote jacket to "provide cushioning for the Wii Remote for people who might accidentally throw or drop their Wii Remotes while playing games."

The new Switch game also encourages players to use the wriststraps on their Joy-Con controllers to avoid similar mishaps, although it appears not everyone is quite paying attention.

Nintendo also took to its official Twitter account to advise parents to supervise their children while playing the game to ensure they don't break anything.

Switch Sports brings many classic Wii Sports games to the Nintendo Switch, including the iconic tennis game which can be played with friends or family using the console's various controllers.
