I'm located in the U.S., just to let you know.
My mom was watching the news and found out that 3.2 million people (the ones that have purchased Wiis) will have to send back their Wiimotes because of the wrist strap problem. Wow! I was shocked, and quite glad because I don't have a Wii yet. It would be a pain in the neck to have to send back the Wiimote and be "Wiimote-less" (unless you have an extra Wiimote) for a few days or a week possibly (if not more than that).
