TOTAL RECALL !!

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.

  2. My parents bought my brother one for x-mas and now they don't know if they should return it or let him open it and than do the return after xmas... (my mother is terrified he'll brake everything in her living room if they wait) ;o)

  3. YoungMum: My advice would be for them to do the return now, because no matter what, he's going to want to play with it if he can, and who knows what will happen?

  4. Is it just me or does the new strap look exactly like the old strap?
