I wonder how long it's going to take before people call them "Wiistraps"

A small population of spastic Wii gamers who experienced flying Remotes as a result of broken wrists straps received a list of safety tips from Nintendo advising them to "Hold the Wii Remote firmly and do not let go."

Those who were expecting a recall of the product got no such thing, but Nintendo quietly made a revision to the wrist strap without any sort of announcement or comment. In the latest batch of Wii consoles, the wrist strap included with the pack-in controller features a noticeably thicker, and probably stronger wrist strap.

A Go Nintendo reader reported that Nintendo also sent him the revised wrist strap as a replacement for his broken one. See the images to right for a comparison between the old and the new.
