    Is it true

    I have seen on BBC news that nintendo might recall some of their wii consoles because of the hazards they cause to children and adults.This will give the chance to sony and microsoft to exceed nintendo. This is giving me a change of mind on whether to buy a wii or another console. Please tell me if this is true.

    I don't know if this is true or not but I do know it's a ridiculous reason not to purchase the wii. Like so many have said before, get a grip (literally) on the controller.

    Trust journalists to screw with the facts.

    um

    put it this way, people make mistakes and accidently lose grip on the controller..

    but to think that this is guarantee'd to happen.. is stupid. if you seriously think that "oh, its gonna break my tv if i get one cuz im too stupid to hold onto the freakin controller" then don't buy one. let someone else enjoy it..

    i have tested the controller when it was sweaty too.. i don't even know how people throw these wiimotes around the room. i get a a good grip on it, and im fine (no, not squeezing the wiimote till it pops, but pretty firmly) i've had no problems whatso ever.

    and im really sick of these issues being brought up.. people buy cars, people crash cars.. is it guarantee'd to happen? no. but accidents happen (let me just say that the chance of throwing a wiimote is even less than having a car accident, possibly not, but it depends on the dumbasses)

    They donīt recall the cosoles.
    / the BBC reported Nintendo were to recall 3.2 million Wii wrist straps /

    It is indeed correct that the Straps are delicate. And thay they might break soon... But that doesnīt mean that the console in faulty...

    I called yesterday Ninetndo about that my Wrist Strap broke (see my thread). and they will send me a new one for free.

    I agree with wii.ndi. I mean, people think that if they have a strap, they can not loose the control. And if they do, the fault if from Nintendo.....

    What people must realize is that the remote is NOT a bat, NOT a golfstick, it is a REMOTE! So hold on to it. donīt loose it.....
    But you can not blame a company what YOU break....Should I sue the constructor of my house, If I slam the frontdoor and crash the cristals????

    I can essure you, that your are 100% save with the Wii... I am not saying this because I have one (I didnīt know about the Wii until two weeks ago). I just say it from experience that The Wii is great fun for the family....

    If you check on Nintendo's site nothing has to be sent in to them. Just fill out a form and they will mail new wrist straps...up to 4 of them per registrant.

    I think, even though this is usually an over excited user's fault...they are handling it great!

    it's great, although i've never had a problem throwing the remote... i'm going to get myself some. never know when one of my friend's my toss it.

    and unfortunately for me, flyingwii.com is doomed with the straps being replaced.

    a UK replacment?

    first message so bear with me.

    does anyone know for certain that Nintendo UK are replacing the wrist straps and if so how one contacts them. I phoned the number given by the BBC and they denied that they were replacing them.

    The US web site has a form to fill in but the UK/Europe site does not appear to have such a form.

    Any help much appreciated.
