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.
I like how he says "people tended to get a little excited" lol. People did through a controller THROUGH a TV lol. It's like saying....Napoleon was a tad interested in world domination lol.
