The big N has now taken a more vocal stance by offering to replace the straps for Wii owners the world over. All Wii owners have to do is fill in
an official strap replacement form
on Nintendo’s website. That’s it; no need to send in your own straps or anything of the like. Your new straps will arrive, delivered by cartoon plumbers, in 5-9 days. While the move will likely cost Nintendo quite a bit of cash, it’s worthwhile as long as it fixes the problem.
