    I got my Wii for chrimbo and I'm delighted with it, so far playing for about 8 hours with zelda, Red Steel, Wii play and with the wife and her family on Wii sports. I have also downloaded Donkey Kong Country and Alien Crush. One thing bothers me though - I have moved the console to different rooms and carrie dit in a bag to my wifes family on xmas day, and I have noticed today quite a few little scratches on the console itself, in the enamal-like finish of the console; is this common? Does the console scratch easily because of the shiny plastic used? I havent mistreated it in any way...

    they are probably not scratches have you tried using a cloth and buffing them out?

    They arent noticable really but are definately scratches, you can feel them. When I started looking though I saw loads all over the console. Try looking carefully and see if you can see any.

    The cats not gettin any attention. I can just see it now coming up to the Wii, it's claws coming out all of a sudden and then swoosh! You walk in with the cat next to the Wii, looks fine but you walk up to the Wii and it slides apart :lol:!

    Ah well, maybe it happened when I carried it in a bag with a couple of games then, if so then the finish does scratch very easily so watch out!

    Well all i can say.. It maybe was all-ready like it when you purchased it..

    I know this might sound bizarre but was it untamperred with when purchased.

    I know some stores will actually take the consoles out of the box to store in a game store, then put it back in when purchased. (You usually don't notice them doing this). The same with Games.

    Or It was Like it from Nintendo. :mad2:

    If they bother you THAT much, that you would do ANYTHING to get them gone, just register your Wii at Nintendo.com if you havnt already, once u register it you get your warrenty extended by 90 days, once you do that destroy your Wii, and order a new one with you warrenty.
