(Redmond, WA) Nintendo's new Wii gaming console promises to be the next generation of interactive systems, but danger lurks in the devices.

Hospital emergency rooms have been reporting thousands of cases of injuries stemming from use of the handheld controllers.

"We're seeing broken noses from accidentally getting hit by opponents to broken hands slammed into walls," said doctor Joseph Blow.

The eldery have even been playing Wii, enjoying the simplicity of the interface. "Unfortunately there have been several accounts of ripped ligaments and torn muscles," said the doctor.

Rheumatologists are also concerned that the games may lead to repetitive stress syndrome and arthritis.

Nintendo claims that their product is perfectly safe when used properly.
