    No problems with my Wii yet and I don't have a PS3 sorry
    The Wii can't over heat so it's quite impossible to have issues.

    I know a guy who has a PS3. He works at Gamestop. His PS3 hasn't had any problems yet. But ALL demo PS3 booths have broken down in my mall and I still don't see replacements. Sony made the worst booth ever. It melts the PS3 inside.

    i have never had a problem with any system i've ever owned ever. but you always take a risk when buying any kind of electronic hardware. But i haven't had a single problem with any of my systems. i'm still playing on systems i got 15 years ago. i suspect the same will ring true with my wii and 360.

    I heard alot of 360's break over heating main issue "red ring of death" I heard only a few ps3 broke down same true for Wii I always wait awhile so they get all the bugs out of them before I buy.

    You usally wont have any problems with a console if you look after it well. If your always dropping it and hitting it etc it wont be good for it.

    I think my Wii actually overheated twice and froze, I accidentally closed the cabinet and the power adapter is right behind it too. Has anyone else's Wii froze?

    the wii doesn`t have problems but a friend of my who has a 360 says that if you put the 360 in a close place or in a very thight spot the 360 gets overheated =S

    The systems usually give warning signs. They may make funny noises, randomly stop working. My PS2 disk tray is starting to make noises when opening up and closing. My PS2 controller times out sometimes. The rest of my systems still work great. If the PS3 is like the PS2, Xbox it has a life span of 5 years max.

    DC 2-5 years
    Xbox- 6months-5 years
    PS2- 1-5 years
    I own a NES, SNES, N64, Saturn, DC, PS1, PS2, Turbo Graphix 16, Atari 2600, Game Boy Color, Wii.
