Following the well publicised problems with the Nintendo Wiimote, they have deicded to recall the wrist straps for all Wiis sold to date, following customer compliants. (A total of 3.2. millions straps)
The newer version will hopefully be more rugged, as many gamers "Wii all day long". If you are affected, then order your new strap here. It looks like you don't need to return the old starp either, which is going to make things easier !
The company has also recalled 200,000 AC adapters for its DS and DS Lite consoles in Japan. Nintendo said the recall would not affect overseas adapters.
