    The problem only seems to affect certain consoles randomly, so most of us should be fine. Even my Wii froze up a few times a few days ago, but it appears to be working fine now. :)

    Seems like every console has their issues, xbox 360 red ring of death, ect.
    I've never had a problem with a system from NES to 360

    The Wii has a very very low failure rate. It's just that you only hear about the ones that have problems. People don't typically come online and post a message just to say, "My Wii works normally!"

    I also think alot of people dont take care of there consols that well anymore. I am not saying any of you haven't been I am just saying it could be one of the cases. But, yes every system has its falts, and a few of them will have a few issues.

    Aside from Guitar Hero III's main menu being somewhat broken, in terms of slight freezing, Wii is basically invulnerable. I am not having any problems.

    I would say with the Wii most of the time if it does break it's for the same reason people throw Wiimotes at the TV (User stupidity). There are still plenty of people who somehow get their CDs scratched up because they don't know how to pick them up.

    The only console I have that is dying is my PS2, I barely play it anymore. I own an Atari 2600, NES, SNES, N64, Saturn, DC, TG-16, PS1-2, GBA, Wii.

    ...No one complains about actual problems, they just think it's broken if they have a yellow light or something.

    I had a problem with mine today, it made a high pitched squeal and i had to pull the plug. The fuse just blew i think, a new fuse and it was better. The LCD light wasn't even showing up, i panicked :sick:

    :lol:
    On my old PS1, I had left Tiny Tank (great game) on while I was out (uh-oh...) and when I came back, it was grinding very loudly, and the TV was off, but it seemed that it was coming out of both the TV and the PS1.

    :lol: Odd, I know...

    The lens never worked until a week ago when I wiped it off, for some reason.

    I named it the "Playstation Wobbly Nightime Disk"

    OR

    Haha, a disc scratched on the Wii. My Wii Sports, wich case is that Paper case, each time I stop playing I take the game out and put it in there, and there are no marks. Any of my 360 discs that I keep in my case when i'm not playing do have marks.

    Wii pwns at taking care of discs. :yesnod:

    A Saturn? Never heared of it..explain?

    a Sega Saturn it came out after Sega Genisis or was it before? I dont remember, but it was one of the first 3D game systems back in the 90s. I used to own one played Tomb Raider alot on it lol. Also yeah if your disks get scratched on a Wii you got problems lol. Also earlier today my Wii froze my dad was playing it I got so mad I told him not to play it again..and it was humming really loud I just unplugged the darn thing, I hope its not broken...

    Mii 2. (lol)
    But anyway, I'm one of those people who can't own it if it's not perfectly in order, so I'm very lucky mine works.
