    I got my replacement straps in mail

    They are exactly the same as the one that came with the console.

    I saw some pics of it with a thicker version of it but when i compared to the one i have there is no difference.

    What gives?:confused: :confused:

    perhaps when you purchased your system, the new straps were already included in it because u got it later? iunno

    When did you buy your Wii? If you didn't buy it in November-Early December it probably already has the new straps on it. I haven't gotten mine yet or even gotten the email, weird.

    Then your console must have come with them. I don't have the newer ones, where can I get them? I have been using my DS wrist strap.

    All of the Wiis shipped from December onwards were supposed to already have the thicker straps. You didn't need to bug Nintendo and get new ones :)

    Have you ever thought that maybe you are slightly blind, and cant actually see the difference between the new and old straps?

    I would like to refer you to my specialist:http://www.allaboutvision.com/

    I hope you see better soon :D

    You got the new ones with your system. I bought mine a week after US launch and received the new straps in the mail, and they are noticeably a bit thicker - you can tell the difference easily as they're about twice the diameter.

    I honestly don't see the problem with the old straps, I have them, and I see no problems whatsoever. =|

    Maybe it's just crazy people playing with greasy/sweaty hands using extremely exaggerated movements? :p

    I've even done my own little stress tests on the old straps and they held up to it, but I'm gunna order the new straps anyway just 'cause they look seeeexxy.

    Try Contacting Nintendo-Europe, they should have a recall as well (Or maybe only Americans need the stronger ones, and English aren't as clumsy :p)

    Also, They screwed up my order and I recieved 1 when I ordered 3, but they sent the rest out UPS which i guess was nice of them.
