Well its too bad my first post is about hardware problems.
First a little backstory. My wife gave me permision to get a game console system (I have a PC that plays everything out there right now) so I chose the XBOX360.
wait let me give you a little more info..... My wife said I can get a game console system for the family which includes a 2 year old and a 5 year old. So I chose a xbox360. I had some good fun with it for a couple of days, but my kids just couldnt get the hang of Forza Motorsports 2. So i brought it back to Futureshop, and got myself a WII.
I have fallen in love with this little thing. My PC could do everything the xbox could (minus some exclusives) But this Wii is all new fun.
Now that I have that out of the way..... my problem.
I bought the Wii yesterday with a WiiPlay remote package, Metroid 3 corruption, and Carnival (This game got terrible reviews online, but I strongly recommend it for ages 3-6. My kids a squeeling giggling little nutz the whole time its on) Well yesterday and today we logged a good 5 hours of gameplay (In little spurts) and while playing Carnival it froze. Screen went Blank, and a humming sound was comming out of the audio (stereo). I pressed power....nothing...... I pressed reset.... nothing....... I pressed eject....It ejected.
I pulled the powerplug from the back and plugged it in again. It started up. And we were able to play again. Not 5 min later it froze again. did the same thing, and it froze again.
I packed up all of my stuff, and brought it back to futureshop with reciept and traded it for another one. Im hoping this one will not have any problems. I am loving Metroid 3.
I must admit that futureshop was nice to me, they even replaced my wiipoints that I had on the console (2000) although with a little influence from my complaining. I didnt have to raise my voice or anything tho. Just explained my situation and stated I think they should replace it.
Regardless of Customer service issues (which i would say were quite good) Has anyone else here had these kinds of problems with the Wii.
