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.
