Wii will replace your straps, say Nintendo

It’s not surprising that Nintendo have decided to recall 3.2million Wii controller straps after seeing horrific pictures such as the one below, caused by people simply playing games, as they were meant to.

Wiihaveaproblem.com has been cataloguing user submissions of Wii related incidents since the console was release and there has been an alarming number of cases of the straps that keep the controller securely in your hand actually snapping and flying across the room, often taking out a piece of electrical equipment or furniture with it, like this poor persons rear-projection TV, pictured below;

Of course, not all damage has been done to inanimate objects or indeed by fault of design, some incidents have been caused by human error, to say the least, like in the case of this poor lady who was injured whilst her boyfriend swishing his ‘sword’ around, playing Zelda.

Or even, this woman who dislocated her knee whilst playing Wii sports Tennis in high heels, look away if you’re grossed out easily…

Unfortunately, at this time there is no information on how customers are to receive their replacement straps…
