That does sound like a cause for concern which is what LG G3 owners are experiencing at the moment. According to several reports, it seems that there are cracks appearing at the LG G3’s microphone opening.

Now we should note that these are pre-orders for Wii U games, as opposed to the actual Wii U console itself, so we’re not sure how much this has affected Nintendo.
