    There is a replacement service in place for the straps:

    http://wii.nintendo.co.uk/6340.html

    Straps on the early wii's and remotes were too thin, they are replacing them for free.

    There are no recalls on the actual console/controllers.

    I think some consoles got recalled too. As I have a preorder with curreys but when I ring them, they said they would have given me my console but they had to replace people ones that they returned, strap maybe?

    If it is, it makes me kinda angry, that I didnt get my console on launch day because so idiot broke they TV with thier remote :mad:

    Like with any product / console not every single one will work. Some people have had faulty consoles that dont read discs etc which they would have to take back for replacement.

    There is no recall for the console, remote or strap.

    They are simply offering to replace any broken straps, or send out new ones if you have the old type and are worried about them breaking.

    Even if there was a recall (and I have certainly not seen anything to indicate there is) people are having so much fun playing games on the Wii that they'd probably have to visit individual homes and prise the wiimote and then the console out of the owners hands.

    I don't think she was, she was merely repeating what she heard on the news earlier this week....My wife told me the same and aparantly it was on the news on Monday or Tuesday morning and the BBC just got the wrong end of the stick....
