    Saw how the straps were breaking and realised that they are no more that those lanyards you can buy for mobile phones. I spotted a white leather one in The Carphone Warhouse with an extremely fine chain for the loop that attaches to the wii-mote.


    That shouldn't break.....right?

    That strap has saved my ass at least once... when playing WiiSports (whether you're swinging a bat, or bowling), it is sometimes easy to accidentally let go of the remote at the end of your swing.

    wouldnt the wiimote spontaneously combust as a result of the chemical reaction of a sony and nintendo product?

    Doubtful lol... But Nintendo should release a re-enforced Strap, after it is out worldwide (by the 8th) they might release one.

    no the sony strap would start to figure out the wiimote is getting more attention, then dye itself white and attach a blue light and motion sensor to itself somehow

    same for me, exactly what it is for too, save your ass when you slip up, and i doubt it will break for those occasional slips.

    but i think the ones that break are for people (especially nongamers) who swing the crap out of it, and girls

    thank nintendos lawyers for the strap i'd bet

    also note that you shoud have some slack in the strap, not around your wrist, but between your wrist andthe wiimote, if ya feel its slip, youll grab for it before it fully flys out and maybe snaps, but if its tight and you slip, all the stress will be put into the strap right away

    yeah, I terrified when my one cuz plays, after countless years of throwing a pool cue into my ceiling and breaking lights at bars, im kinda glad he's trying to get his own... I was shivering while he bowled and was giving his wrist whiplash toward my tv with my wiimote

    tip: dont swing so hard.

    you dont need to.

    the straps are fine as they are.

    If you don't have a strong enough grip to maintain control of the remote, maybe you need to get out a get some real physical activity in instead of Wiisports.
    All the videos you see of guys losing control are of idiots trying to show off.
