Nintendo nimbly responded to the wrist strap breakage quite quickly. Starting in early December Nintendo started shipping the Wii consoles and Wii motes with a upgraded heavier strap. Nintendo will also replace the wrist strap the original version of the wrist straps for the Wii mote with a newer version. Quite impressive given how quickly Nintendo was able to source a new strap and integrate it into their supply chain. I for one will not replace my strap. First, I have a nearly indestructible CRT and not a fragile plasma. Second, no matter how excited I get I find it inconceivable that I will lose my grip and send the Wii mote flying.

Yeah, you should keep your strap. Ten years from now you'll be one of the few owners of the original wrist strap version... I guess they'll be rare or something. =)

And you wonder why I'm a Nintendo fanboy. :-D
Indra's right, at least I chose the right side.
