Nintendo stuurt handschoenen naar mensen die het spel Mario Party gekocht heeft als men daar om vraagt. Dit naar aanleiding van een onderzoek waaruit is gebleken dat mensen geblesseerd raakten van een aantal minigames in Mario Party. De handschoenen kosten bijelkaar 80 Miljoen dollar en Nintendo zal ook de kosten voor het onderzoek vergoeden: 75.000 dollar...On Wednesday, Nintendo announced that it would provide protective gloves to owners of the Mario Party video game. Nintendo made the move to settle an investigation by the New York State Attorney General's office, which claimed that playing Mario Party had resulted in injuries to players' hands. According to Nintendo, injuries occur when players use their palms to rotate the joystick on the Nintendo Controller while playing certain Mario Party minigames. Injuries include cuts, burns, blisters, punctures, and lacerations. Nintendo recommends that players use their thumb or their thumb and forefinger to manipulate the joystick. The minigames in question are found only in Mario Party, and not in Mario Party 2, the sequel that was released late last year. The minigames are Paddle Battle, Tug O' War, Pedal Power, Cast Aways, and Deep Sea Divers. A practice game, Mecha Fly Guy, also caused hand injuries.
