    I just received mine back and am very dissapointed with their choice of packaging. The wii was shipped in a box about the same size as the wii. I haven't checked if it works or not, but has anyone else recieved their repair in this cheap packaging?

    Does packaging really matter when it is simply a repair? Surely the Wii inside is more important.

    I work in shipping department and yes packaging does matter. It can damage the unit. they just sent me a replacement in a box about the size of the wii. If it works I dont mind but its just odd because nintendo stressed packaging it well to send it to them and then they send it to me like this.

    I bought Mario Party 6 and it came with no box, at all, and didn't let me send it back. Sure, it came in some sort of... brown envelope... but I thought Gameplay were decent...

    I sent my wiimote in for repair. Yes the packaging wasn't perfect, but it was sufficient to send me back a working wiimote.
    (My wiimote's motion sensing died....it was very funny. When the boxer loses the motion control, his hand becomes attached to his head.)

    I use gameplay and I find them to be fine at packaging, I have used them for a very long time and haven't had a bad packaged game ever, maybe you just got some idiot on his first day lol, but recently I would say their packaging has improved.

    I had the same problem, all you have to do is tap the back of the Wii-mote, I smacked it on the table lol (I didnt know what else to do). Fair enough if you tried this but it worked for me, and many other people.

    Sorry, I miss understood your post. I thought you were commenting more on the way it looks or something equally wrong. My bad.
    If it was packaged in a way that it could could get damaged then that is definetely a problem! :scared:

    I didn't see any physical damage, but I really want to know if this is how they send out all their repairs. Im not happy with the packaging

    I can see where you are coming from. I too hate having to recieve crappy packaging from companies when I personally took my time to send it carefully to them. But you can't exactly rise against them for that I suppose.

    90% of packaging gets thrown away. (Graphics teacher, Monday lesson =P) Why does the packaging really matter if it's something that isn't going to be used for advertising and damage the material?

    I sent my Wii-mote & DS to Nintendo. (At different times) They both came in a medium sized filled with packing peanuts. It seemed fine to me.

    you really dont realize why it would matter how it was packed? Apparently you haven't seen how ups handles packages....

    Does it work? If Yes, then packaging was sufficient to get the job done. I personally commend Nintendo for minimizing waste materials and costs.

    give me a break if they instruct me to package it well, I expect them to do the same when shipping it back. I've seen ups guys throw lcd screen computers from the back to the front of the ups truck. Just lobbed it.
