    We've had our Wii since Christmas. There are 4 of us.

    Me, my wife, my 9 year old daughter and my 4 year old daughter.

    Not one of use have ever let go of the Wiimote, it's never slipped, the strap has never been used in anger. Even my mum had a go on WiiSports bowling and there were no problems, and she's getting on a bit.

    I look at that WiiDamage site and think to myself - what kind of idiot throws his wiimote hard enough to go through a TV/Wall/Friends face ?? My 4 year old can use it for gods' sake!

    I know accidents do happen, and we always use the straps. But my god there must be some complete plebs out there.

    That's so true.

    I heard that the UK Wii's were shipped with the new strap?!

    I only noticed after playing on a friends wii last night his straps are a lot thinner than mine (both UK wii's).

    When I got home I took a closer look at mine and the wii controller I got with the wii had thick straps but the one I got with wii play had thin straps?!?!

    Very odd as the wii I got was on launch night and the one my friend got was about 2 weeks after launch.

    Not true. I think consoles shipped after a certain date (something like the 16th - 18th) had the new re-enforced strap.

    I too think Wii Damage is bull crap. People criticise the Wii at my school saying it's dangerous, SCREW THEM! It's just careless people who want compensation.

    i agree with few posts above. i donteven use my straps. ive taken them off. i dont see how anyone can damage other items by using these. its common sense to hold the thing tight. ive never let go of my wiimote nor even come close to getting worried. like ooh that was a close shave.

    even my lil girl aged nine can play it and not use strap. i was so shocked when i first heard about people damaging their tv etc.
