Sure, here's what happened. 

I was playing super smash brothers when my wii froze.  It froze once before when I was playing ssb, so I wasn't all that worried.  So I held in the button to reboot, and when I started it back up all I got was black.  It would wirr and light up, but nothing came up.  I restarted it and unplugged it and stood it on its side and did every combination of everything i could think of, but still, nothing.  So I called up nintendo and they shipped me out a new system for no charge at all.  It came in 3 days and now it's been working great.  I've played a bunch of gamecube games and haven't had a problem since.  I wouldn't worry about it.  Even if it does break, they will just give you a new one, or fix yours for free.  I chose to get a new one because it was faster and I didn't have much on it yet, though I did loose my miis and my zelda saves.  Ohhhh well.

Aw man that really blows.

My wife bought me the new Zelda last night.  Kinda reminds me of the first Jak & Daxter a little bit (I'm not that far into the game yet though...).  It's pretty sweet.

That's pretty much par for the course for Sony. :^)

Ouch.  You know something is wrong when even the systems they use to advertise are buggy.  Still no more problems with my Wii, so I don't think it's anything to be too worried about.

And please, re add my wii number.  I'll post it again here in case you missed the last message.  2014 2861 2254 0795.  I know you people have lives and better things to do then retyping a number into your wii, but you see, I don't, and I only have one Mii in my parade right now.  So by sacrificing a bit of your life, you can give me one by letting me have more friends... in my parade.

Apparently Sony says their freezing is a feature not a problem.  I sometimes read the gaming sites and several Sony reps have said the demo units were designed to freeze up to prevent people from playing games all day in the store. 

That's nice of 'em.  I have heard of home PS3s freezing up a little too though (though nobody I know has had problems with them).  I wonder if they decided to extend the feature.

I've also heard tale that PS3s aren't selling. The initial rush was mostly people grabbing them to sell on Ebay, and those got sold. From what I hear, the PS3s are sitting on shelves, and this early in the game, that isn't a good sign.

The Wii, meanwhile, having produced 10 times as many systems, is nowhere to be found. GO NINTENDO! :^)

(Please note, I have nothing AGAINST Sony, but there's so much over the years that has shown me that they don't know what they're doing, but they've stumbled into a thing or two  that carried them as far as they've gone. I've never felt like they belonged in the console wars, even if they did have the lead for a long time. :^))

My mom works in electronics at a Walmart and that's pretty much true here.  She said right before Christmas they were literally going to the demo unit and telling the guys playing, "We have some of these in" and no takers.  They got a shipment of 12 and they didn't sell out until after Christmas and now they have another shipment that is sitting on shelves (in a lock case, of course).  They don't have any Wiis.

I think it's a price issue.  Who can afford a PS3?  I, for one, can't see paying that even if I could.  You could buy a whole PC for that.

It's almost impossible to get a Wii over here.  The problem is that stock is trickling through of a rate about 10 a day!  ;D

Sony's argument seems to be "The PS3 pretty much is a PC." To which I respond, can it do my taxes? Or download RiffTrax? Wankers.

Yeah, the Wii kicks alot of ass.  I'm thinking I'll get one here in the next few months as Nintendo gets more supplies.  Also, I'm seriously considering an XBox 360.  I really didn't like the first xbox, but the 360 is a damn solid system.  Reasonably priced, good quality games, and fantastic online support.  I'm NOT getting a PS3.  I abandoned nintendo with the N64 and since played alot of PS and PS2.  The PS3 is just wrong for gaming.  It's overpriced, all style and no heart.

I managed to order one from Germany of all places, and I should hopefully get it within the week.  I also bought Red Steel (I don't care what the reviews say, I want a samurai sword, dangit!).
