    I'm kind of disappointed in the big N. I don't think it has been since the nes days that they had this many hardware problems.

    Bring back the power glove I say!:lol

    I think the problem isn't the strap itself, but the shape of the plastic around the strap... it comes to a sharp edge that rests against the strap, and I'm sure that after enough tension of strap vs. edge, the strap will eventually wear out.

    Still... I do believe I'd order a new one just for piece of mind.

    Christ, you can take up to 4... I imagine most people will just take 4 for the hell of it. I did. I've only got 1 Wiimote, but some extra wrist straps could come in handy.
