    New Nintendo Wrist Straps?

    Hello,

    I ordered my new Nintendo wrist straps the day Nintendo started to offer them. Received them about 2 weeks later, I was satisfied. They worked fine. But then I went to my friends yesterday who just got her wrist straps, and her's are different from mine. The base of the strap is a different colour, and the clip that holds your hand there actually locks in place! I want these new new wrist straps, they are so much better.

    Do you think Nintendo will send me more?

    Nintendo will only send a max of 4 per Serial number. while they will send more to your address, you must present an additional serial number so they know you have a separate wii.

    (so i wouldn't count on it)

    apparently ninty have handed over the strap making to a third party. so you are likely to get crappy straps when you order extras. but you will however get the original straps when buying a wii or extra remotes.

    I commented elsewhere that I felt that the replacement strap they sent me was actually of lesser quality than the straps that came packaged in the console.

    For one, the wrist strap slider/tightener won't stay in place and I keep looking down to find the wrist strap just hanging around my wrist instead of snug. At least the original model stayed in place.

    However, for any of you who have purchased the 3rd party Wii-mote sleeves (I think from MadKatz) you will probably all agree that these are hardly worth the materials they were created from.
