    wii won't get smashed up everyone loves it too much

    ive noticed that she used the fat ps2, many sony fans that i showed this vid to complained that if she used the slimline, the ps2 would last longer.
    But i digress, i think that testers should always use the first design for durability test etc.
    (anyway, she might have done this test before the slimline was produced)

    You dont have to worry about pulling your console out with the wii by pulling the controller cause there aint any wires :)

    I just realised... All nintendo consoles so far (except handheld ones) have reset buttons which really easily can get stuck.

    The Gamecube is the most durable console I've owned so far, with practically no problems since I first bought it.

    Only problem I have ever had with the gamecube is that sometimes the open button sticks down. But with the self loading media unit, it wont be a problem on the wii!
