After a nice LONG day of sitting outside freezing to death, I got 22 of 27 Wii's at a Wally World. Got it home, all hooked up fine. Powered right up, looked good. Put in the setup info. Went into the make my Mii editor. Made my guy, saved him. It then drops him into a room I guess where you can look at him and interact with it. I hit the B-button and WHAM. Video goes out, power light on my Wii is dead? I check everything, all looks fine. Try some other power plugs, disconnect everything for 10 minutes, hook it back up, pull batteries from controller, etc etc etc. Nada, no power to my Wii at all. WTF is this?
Checked the AC adapter, its the right model. I don't know if its the Wii or the power brick, but its pretty upsetting to say the least. If this is a bug that kills consoles dead, thats pretty lousy QA on N's part.
