    I think some of those stories are fake.
    Also, as long as you don't make DRAMATIC swings and just take it easy with the Wiimote... everything should be fine. But that's not really a bug... :p

    People are saying that so they think they can get a lawsuit. But Nintendo is ready for it... not to mention the people can't prove that they were actually wearing the strap at the time. Someone could have simply cut the thing after the Wiimote slipped out of their fat, sweaty, gamer claws. Thankfully Nintendo will prevail!

    Look don't worry, i take my wii-mote softly and it havent even broke. And im 13.

    It brakes because people either has sweaty hands or plays everything too seriously and lose control and goes to hard and then *snap*.

    yeah, that is just a fluke. 7 year olds are kinda dumb when it comes to holding things anyway (i have a 6 year old sis)

    this isn't a bug this is just the fact that a 5 cent string can't hold back the force of a fully thrown controller sometimes.

    although i have lost mine from my hand plenty and my string remains strong!

    gimme a break, if you're actually considering not buying the Wii because of two complete flukes, then clearly you don't actually want it.

    If you're actually worried about that happening to you, just rig it up with a second string. Although I'm not looking at my Wiimote right now, it shouldn't be that hard to reinforce it yourself.

    My spastic friend was playing mine and threw a bowling ball as hard as he could and the thing snapped. Luckily I have like 30' tall ceilings so it barely even made it to the ceiling, but he had some force behind that thing.

    Hows is the string breaking "buggy"? The software has some bugs like freeze-ups and more framerate drops in Gamecube games the if you were to just play them on Gamecube. And you would have to be a real idiot to let go of the controller. That is a weird consideration to have when purchasing a Wii. So what are the odds? It depends, are you an idiot?

    Look at the picture on the link on hellview's post. Try telling me that hasn't been cut... If you dont believe me get an old shoe lace and cut it in half with scissors - same effect - nice clean split - no fraying at all... Not sure if I believe all this. Also the string and the bit holding the string broke? Thats not possible the kinetic force would break one or the other. Think about it.
