With Christmas rollling around again and folks running amok in shopping centres already, the critics have already named the Nintendo Wii as this year's must-have Christmas present. Launched in Europe on the 11th, it has now entered the homes of most of the western world.
And, as everyone is no doubt aware, things are not all fine and dandy for Nintendo right now. Many customers have been shocked to find the straps on their 'Wiimotes' breaking and it slipping out of their hands, causing damage to TV's, windows, lights and people, amongst others.
Nintendo's response to this has been an announcement that it will replace all broken wrist straps, though they say that if used correctly the straps are not prone to these sorts of breakages. It also says that all future consoles are to be fitted with "enhance" straps.
What do you think? Is the Wii dangerous? Or do some people blow it all out of proportion because of the upset they find when their brand-new console breaks?
