Nintendo to Replace 3.2 Million Straps for Wii Game Consoles - WSJ.com

Oops... 

Nintendo said Friday it will replace 3.2 million straps for its popular Wii computer game consoles after the Japanese game maker received a rash of reports that the device flew out of the hands of enthusiastic players.

The wand-like remote control is used to mimic the motions of a tennis racket, golf club or sword, depending on the game. But soon after the Wii went on sale last month, people started reporting cases of the control's strap breaking as they waved it about vigorously.
