    wii strap recall

    ok, you guys have probably heard all about the wii strap recall... i just wanted to post the picture and info of how acctualy thick the new strap is.

    "Nintendo will allow customers to exchange the old strap attachments, which have a 0.024 inch diameter, for a beefed-up strap that has a diameter of 0.04 inch, company spokesman Yasuhiro Minagawa said. The worldwide recall is expected to cost the company several million dollars."

    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/straps.jsp, this link shows the difference between the new strap and the old strap. this will not be a good thing to nintendo, as the article said- "The worldwide recall is expected to cost the company several million dollars." it will hopfully not affect nintendo in a big way. i guess all we can do is wait and see.

    Believe me, people will find a way to break the new strap. Why? Because people are stupid.

    Seriously most people who have Wii's aren't Nintendo Fans
    If you break it your an idiot.
    My brother is upstairs playing the Wii without the Strap and he's drunk. Playing Bowling and Baseball does he let go.. NO!!!

    If you are a true Nintendo Fan you don't make a big deal of you being stupid and make the company loose money

    IDIOTS......

    the recall isnt nescesary. people nowadays are retarded and if anything goes wrong they freak out. there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with the wrist strap. and face it, the wii has so much criticism. all my friends hate it (maybe cause their x-box\pc\sony\anti everything nintendo fanboys) but i think it is the coolest thing ever!!!
