System: then that is so dumb just becasue of the strap. they could at leasst learn how to use the straps correctly (or may not even use the strap)
Remote: better than the entire system being recalled but its still-how are we going to play (true there are other remotes like the classic controller)

My mom, my friend and I left my house at about 15 to 8 this morning and went to the mall. We went to three stores to find they were all sold out of Wiis x.x They just got a shipment in this morning.
So we went across the street to Target. I figured they wouldn't have any, but we went anyway.
Well when we got there it turned out they had 2 left. They were meant for other people who had reserved them, but the people never showed up. We were about 3rd to last in line, so I was in a 'screw this' mood. I was about to walk out of line when I hear from the store manager, 'This is what we're gonna do!' I'm like.. 'we're gonna do something!?!? o.O'
So they decide that we're gonna do a raffle to decide who gets the Wiis. The people in the front of the line are having tantrums, go figure. Oh well. Babies.
My friend had the first number they called X3 GO HER! So Heather got a Wii. We kept and framed the winning ticket ^.^
T'was an awesome day.
As for the strap, if mine breaks, I'll replace it with a different one.

A lot of them just stopped working after about two weeks. I never heard of them exploding though o.o'
That's strange. Especially about the X-Box 360. How would it just "explode" after two weeks of game play? The people using it must be doing something to it. Game systems don't just "explode".

Right... Peoplsonz who own wiis should be more careful. Doubt it's Nintendo's fault...
Yesterday I started watching the news for no apparent reason and they said they were recalling every Nintendo Wii new in stores or even already bought! Wanna know why? People say the straps that tie the Wiimote to your wrist aren't strong or thick enough and they keep flying out of their hands and breaking stuff or hitting people. It seems there's always a flaw to a brand new system, always! People were saying that the new Xbox 360, if bought under $500, would explode after two weeks playing time or so, and PS3's are said to to have some troubles with their wireless controllers. 0.o I think some of these are just rumors, but There are also some known to be very true. Have any of these things happened to you, or someone you know??? And do you think the Wii recall is just people not being careful, or if its really their biggest flaw to Nintendo yet, or what???? What's your opinion?
