    That DJ is a tool.

    Nintendo have always made incredibly durable hardware.

    yea, nintendo seems to be the only console/handheld maker that remembers there are going to be many children who play with their product and therefore needs to be very durable.

    i've only had one incident with my wiimote thus far, i didn't pay full attention to my surroundings and hit a chair behind me REALLY REALLY hard with the wiimote. End result : not even a scratch, works 100% fine.

    i used to throw my ps2 controllers as hard as i could at the ground when i lost in certain games. all companies are going to be making quality hardware. the only people making crappy hardware are 3rd parties.

    Yea, but nintendo makes better hardware which lasts longer than PS3 and 360. I still have a N64, with its controler, still works just fine, GC controler also works fine, nothin has gone wrong yet, and i had it 4 how many yrs?:idea:
    Man thats a long time!:D

  9. ive never ever ever had an issue with a nintendo controller PERIOD and im notorious for throwing my remotes around when i lose and slamming them into the ground.

    PS controllers always had that "rattling" sound when you droped them after a while. never had that with a nintendo remote....ever

    ETA- nasty, isnt that uh hitler??? :wtf:

    My ONLY accident with a Wii Remote was the first night i got it and I was playing Wii Sports and i was bowling and took a back swing and my Wii Mote crunched against the table behind me and now there is a small stratch on the back of the wii mote but I thought that i had broken it, on the first night i got it.
    Like hours after that i was playing Twilight Princess and dropped the Wii Mote and i thought that **** it's gunna break now, but fortunately i had the Wrsit strap on HAHA

    The Wii-motes are pretty durable. My last accident was during bowling on RR and I smacked the infrared sensor directly onto the chair behind me (The chair is completely wooden). I scratched the top layer of the remote's glass and thought there was a great chance that the scratches would prevent it from sensing the sensor bar if the entire mechanism hadn't been screwed up entirely. But Turns out the thing works just fine.

    But it is true that in general video game products tend to be strong. Although I must say I have never owned an Xbox There have been several PS1 and PS2 controllers that have begun to degrade such as the thumb sticks sticking and then pretty much breaking and the buttons failing to work.

    Begs the question why you are on a WII forum, in a WII section, saying such things, and to top it off, just to make people REALLY pay attention to your words of wisdom...you double post :thumbsup:
