View Full Version : Wii atracts cockroaches

So far this is just a theory, but it's something that's beginning to come under investigation. Apparently, Japanese entertainment magazine BARKS has alleged that a powered-on Wii emits a sound frequency which falls right into the range to which cockroaches are attracted. This could lend itself to a few uninvited roommates for gamers who are too busy waggling their remotes to invest some time in a little basic housekeeping.

I wouldn't run to the store and drop a week's pay on insecticide just yet, and please keep in mind that this is just a theory, and one that is likely to be debunked eventually. Although, if you find yourself trying out that new Wii Fit Board and hear some crunching under it as you lean one way or the other, don't say I didn't warn you.

Anyone here can confirm that??

That's nasty if it's true!

*Goes to check other gaming systems incase they have emitted sound frequencies to attract cockroaches.*

I don't have a Wii because I don't like it at all, but if someone says it attracts spiders, no way I would buy one. I hate spiders :eek:

Bad luck for you.

No need to act like a jerk. :rolleyes: ;)

Aaaaaah I have a Wii, but I don't think we get cockraches here, I've never EVER seen one since we moved to where I live now.

I'm lucky I don't have a Wii (and don't want one) :)

10-02-08, 00:51
I really don't need another reason to not go out and buy a wii, but this just might seal the deal...except it's probably going to be bumped as a lie soon

10-02-08, 03:54
hey, you might actually do better at those fighting games if you concentrate on killing the cock roaches with the remote!!!

10-02-08, 03:57

Soon, Nintendo will sell Wii with Raid bundled! :vlol:
