JUST GOT THIS EMAIL:
We have recently learned that Nintendo is voluntarily replacing the
straps used with controllers for
the Nintendo Wii console. If consumers swing the hand-held "Wii Remote"
game controllers using excessive
force and accidentally let go, the cord connecting the controller to
wrist strap can break,
potentially causing the controller to strike bystanders or objects.
Nintendo is offering to replace the original version of the wrist
for the Wii remote with a newer
version, free of charge.
