    just wondering if everyone who got the replacement strap got generic looking ones (like the one pictured below, the top of the two), doesn't say Nintendo or Wii anywhere.

    or were you able to get ones that look like the original but fatter (like the one pictured below, the one on the left - picture off of Nintendo.com).

    Mine was the same as the bottom one in the first pic, on reflection, I think my original might have been a thick one.

    I never got new straps. Never broke them. I've never thrown my controllers. Heck, I've never actually needed the strap at all. Unlike the Wiitards, I hold on to my controllers.

    I got 5 straps in the mail. All are the ones we were supposed to get, the Nintendo brand ones.

    Same, except I ordered the new straps because they're free. I like free.

    Same exact reason I ordered one. For the record mine is also a thicker version of my original and it is a little harder to get out of the attachment hook.

    after much searching on the web, i found that the one i got is version 3...so that means, whoever now buys a Wii and plans on getting replacement one, will be getting the crappy looking ones...

    what sucks is that the Nintendo Store doesn't even sell the straps...i would of bought new ones if was the one that looks like the original and not this crappy one i got.

    maybe they're just a temporary strap they're sending out while the new ones are being produced in greater numbers or something
