Nintendo will replace the strap on its wireless, motion-sensitive controller for the Wii gaming machine after lots of reports of it breaking sending the controlling flying in any direction. Company spokesman Yasuhiro Minagawa said, “People tended to get a bit excited, especially while playing Wii sports and in some cases the control would come loose from their hands. The new strap will be almost twice as thick.” Bad straps have been the only downside in the Wii’s successful debut. NPD Group estimates Nintendo has sold twice a many Wiis as Sony has sold Playstation 3s.
