    Well then you can get a few extra straps just incase any other accidents happen xP

    Interesting... apparently there is no recall: http://www.nintendorevolution.ca/121...e_is_no_recall
    They're still replacing straps though

    I guess if they called it an official "recall" it would mean people could go out and try and sue Nintendo for the damages they incurred from the broken wrist straps. "A voluntary exchange program sounds so much nicer".

    Plus official recalls are typically mandated by other organizations - government consumer protection agencies and things like that - in which case Nintendo would have no alternative. What Nintendo is doing now is voluntary.

    Thank god for that. Although we still may face a price drop or the removal of wii sports and a $50 price cut.
