More Wii strap messages from Nintendo

Silly me. I thought when the blue light flickered to life on my Wii yesterday it was Blake sending news of Infendo going public for $500 a share (we Infendo writing ninjas have roughly two gazillion stock options each). But I as wrong. It was just Nintendo reminding me to check my straps and send away from some beefy new ones.

I promptly ignored the message, twirled both my Wiimotes around in the air by the straps for good measure, and then played an intense session of Wario (without using the straps!).

This strap issue is a dead duck as far as I’m concerned. I’m first generation and I’m damn proud of it. I wear 2nd and 3rd generation straps around my neck like a war trophy.
