Nintendo To Replace 3.2 Million Wii Straps
Yep, after seeing too many pictures of people destroying their television set or getting hurt by their wiimote, the folks at Nintendo have decided to replace 3.2 million Wiimote straps. The recall will allow owners to exchange their current remote strap for one almost twice as thick.
The Wii's signature wand-like remote controller is used to mimic the motions of a tennis racket, golf club or sword, depending on the game. But soon after the Wii went on sale last month, people started reporting cases of the controller's strap breaking as they waved it about vigorously.
