    I really need help deciding to get a wii

    Hello everyone, I'm going to make this quick. I used to own an XBOX 360, but it broke 3 times on me. That's right...3 times! I wouldn't be able to sleep at night without wondering if it would break the next day and I would be out of money! I used to be paranoid...

    Now, I want a wii. plain and simple. the games look fun. however, most of the time launch consoles have bugs(ps3s, xbox 360, early ps2s, early psps). Has anyone had ANY problems whatsoever? I don't want to send it back at ALL.

    Help me!


    ...and yes, I did make pamela anderson a tag. i'd hoped it would get attention

    thats not true. NOTHING is EVER bug free. no matter how many bugs are fixed, their will alway be a bug of somesort. if it was made by man, it WILL have bugs. however, the nintendo has only small bugs that i know of. they did a good job of getting rid of the major bugs in the Wii. i say go for it and buy it. if something does go wrong, you got a 1 year warentee and you can get an extra 3 months just by registering it on my.nintendo.com

    You should get one. What's not to like? Fun games mixed with old school games and it'll only get better once Smash Online comes out From what I understand, there were bugs but nothing too serious and as Mitch posted, the extra 3 months of warranty is nice to have.

    of course what mitch and wiilink said are true but compared to the 360 "melting discs" fiasco, the wii is problem free.

    Considering the number of consoles sold in the first 2 weeks (600,000 +125,000) 725,000 total, there have been surprisingly few reports of problems.... relatively speaking.

    Someone told me in another thread here(http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-...r-service.html)that it is only a portion of wiis have problems and that they don't take into consideration the thousands of others that are perfectly fine. However, I don't believe that...when I was deciding to get a 360, people told me the same thing! Check here: xbox 360 freezing - Xbox 360 Forum As I said above, I had to replace it 3 times before I gave up.

    Still, what do you think I should do?
