    That is classic ;)

    RROD vs. 30 year old hardware!

    That is one thing I love about Nintendo - the hardware will last forever - not sure if Wii holds up like the GameCube, N64 etc. - but GameCube and previous are all rock solid decades after their launch - quite amazing

    When I moved out of my parents house I basically bought myself a new Wii, but unable to transfer downloaded games across I basically swapped them around. That launch Wii still plays games just as well as it ever did. Pretty surprised considering the low price. I'm sure it'll last another 6 years at least!

    This is just too funny. I'm probably not getting a Wii U, but I am DEFINITELY not getting the XBox One. It's all about Steam, and I'll play my 360 until it RROD's on me.

    I had my wii brick on me after about 2-3 years of use. Nintendo told me it would cost me hundred bucks to repair it. :/ I have very negative feelings about Nintendo's non-handheld consoles.


    As for the xbox one, will I get it? No way. I'll probably grab a ps4 if anything at all, otherwise its all about steam!
