New Wii Straps Released

December 8th, 2006 . by jb

Bag CatThe cat is still very much in the bag on the issue of weak Wii straps.  With no official announcement by Nintendo, apparently Wii Systems are shipping with improved straps.

As you likely know, there has been a constant reporting of Wii related accidents:  both injuries and damage to personal property (and pride).

The new straps that Joystiq is showing appear thicker, and hopefully are stronger because of it.  I can personally say that I just bought a new Wiimote an hour ago, and the strap is the same as my launch ones.  Perhaps it's just the new systems that are getting the love, but either way, Nintendo seems very on the ball about the whole issue.

Check out the source link for the picture of the new super straps if the kitty isn't doing it for you.
