    Tingling fingers can be a sign of repetitive strain injury. Because you are moving your wrists and fingers so much, your circulation is affected. Make sure that for every hour that you play, you have 15 minutes away from the game. Another thing that can cause pins and needles is the rumble in the controller, because of the vibration it causes. Turn off the vibration in the options of the game.

    Might want to get a doctor to check that. That doesn't happen normally even if you've played all day. The only thing close was thumbache playing old Pro Evo.

    The OP was asking how to get rid of the tingling in his hands. I'm making a suggestion of how he could reduce this. Don't mock me.

    No s/he wasn't.

    I won't mock you, I will laugh when someone quotes the ol' 'rest 15 minutes per hour' manual quote though.

    Sometimes when I'm playing for a few hours. Then I get up and move around, and it usually goes away for me.
