    Dependability of the Wii?

    Greetings all,
    After browsing around the inet, this appeared to be the wii forum that i liked the most. When it comes to next gen gaming, I started with a 360 and loved it for quite some time but after I went through 5 of them (all rrod victims), I decided I had enough and went to PS3 but it only took two of those for me to realize that this wasnt rly what I wanted either (they both kept freezing and the second one stopped reading discs.) I thought I was done with gaming for a while but a friend is selling her Wii and the price is rly hard to turn down. If I rly wanted to, I could buy it and resell it for much more but if I buy it, I do plan to keep it. Shes had it since October of last year with no problems whatsoever so far but Im wondering how dependable are Wiis? Do they have any "light of death" issues like the rrod or ylod? Any freezing issues? (Thats the most annoying thing.) Or anything of the like or are they fairly dependable? (I understand no piece of technology is going to last forever and be problem free.) Ive had every Nintendo console since the beginning (except the gamecube) and they all still work just like the day I bought them. Im rly not a hardcore gamer and to be honest, I mostly just play games in the evenings to relax and get my mind off of things. All tips would greatly be appreciated guys and gals and look forward to playing with some of you if I buy. One game I'll definitely get is cod:waw because that game straight up rocks

    the only problem is that when you play games there are random teddy bears.
    you must mod your wii to avoid the teddys.

    The Wii has proven to be very reliable. And actually the PS3 is pretty reliable too, I'm surprised you had so many problems.

    thanks again for the replies. luckily today being an off day, I picked up the Wii this morning and so far I couldnt be happier with it I rly wish I would have just bought this at the beginning and saved all of that money because Id have a nice collection of games by now. As for the PS3, I guess I just had rly bad luck on them. I was a member on the official sony forum and it seemed like most of them broke right outside of the year warranty but I did run across a few isolated issues like mine that involved practically brand new systems Im loving the Wii so far though, later on today Im going to take the unwanted games to gamestop and pick up cod:waw and resident evil 4

    Unlike other video game consoles ,the Wii is proven to be an effective therapy tool.

    Sincerely,

    Only thing I'm aware of it sometimes the laser disc reader doesn't work with dual layered discs for some people. But it's not a real problem unless you get a game like brawl. And even then, Ninty will take it back and replace it.
