It seems that stories circulating around the web about hapless gamers flogging their Wii’s during heated action and having the wrist strap break, leading to busted TVs have prompted Nintendo to change the design of the Wii strap.

It seems that the Wii wrist strap has gained significant girth over the original to combat the Wii strap breakage. Word has it that currently only the Australian Wii consoles have the thicker straps.I am sure that we will see the improved Wii retention system stateside at some point as well. Till then just be sure that you have a kung-foo grip on your Wii because there is nothing more painful than putting part of your Wii through the screen of your TV. I wonder if Nintendo had any idea, the name of their new console would give writer geeks so many quips. Story and image via Gizmodo.
