    Hi

    Has anyone received their replacement straps from nintendo?

    I filled the online form in and entered my email address. But I never received any confirmation. Has anyone else received confirmation?

    Not yet, but they will have been inundated, so I don't expect to hear/receive anything soon.

    Has anyone here actually had the original ones snap on them?

    Tried mine and they seem pretty bloody strong.

    We must be talking about only (on the grand scheme of things) a handul of muppets outhere!.

    Nope, they're pretty tough! I don't know anyone who has either...
    The old ones are going on the DS lites as they don't get supplied in the box.

    I'm not going to bother getting my straps exchanged. I really can't see how you could ever snap them whilst playing a game. Ive never so much as dropped my wii mote, even whilst going crazy doing the sprinting in Rayman! :rotfl:

    I never got an email but did receive my straps. I would wait a few days and then contact them if you still haven't received.

    I filled out the form the minute the original poster made us all aware of the form. Have not received any yet.

    Its not urgent. If I don't see a replacement in a week, I will just fill out the form again!

    Unfortunately yes! See my previous thread: http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=444843

    I was "shocked out me face"! Must admit, before it happened I would have agreed with you! You can see my previous opinion in a earlier quote from myself:

    Mine came yesterday too, but don't seem any different to the ones I've got :confused:

    Does anyone know how to tell the difference?

    Cheers,

    I ordered some time between the 25th and 27th December, haven't got anything yet. No email, nothing. I'm in no hurry to get a new one though as mine seems fine at the moment *touches wood* and if some of you people ordered on the 15th and haven't got them yet i'm not going to expect it for a while, not that, like i said, i need it.
