Unless you’re living in some sort of Biodome (and if you are, please ensure that Pauly Shore never ever escapes), you’ve probably heard about the Nintendo Wii’s problem with the wrist straps on the Wii Remotes
breaking during play. While it seems as though injuries to people have been so far avoided, many a television has not been quite so lucky.
However, it looks as though Nintendo has already started work on fixing the problem. They’ve
introduced a thicker reinforced strap on units shipping to Australia and Europe. No news as of yet on whether new US and Japanese units, which went out the door earlier, have the new wrist straps included.
