It happened to me

I thought all the reports on the internet were joking, or mostly hyperbole.

I thought it was only people who flailed around crazily with their Wiimotes.

However a few minutes ago while bowling the strap on my Wiimote broke and the controller went flying, hitting the ceiling with a large bang that broke off the battery cover and broke the hooks that keep the batter cover attached, and then came down inches away from my LCD TV.


If you have a Wii, definitely be careful.

  1. Wow …

    I had heard that straps were recalled on many of these units and that the new straps were thicker, more robust. Was this the old-style or new-style strap that broke?


  2. Search for ” Wii Whoa ” on eBay and you will find a solution that Nintendo has yet to embrace. Could save all Wii users much pain and sorrow.
