NE: So, it may not be the most powerful console out there in terms of processing power, but it definitely is the most powerful console if you're looking for one that's meant to last six years straight.
That was very different, and very interesting. Makes me want to start microwaving things!
Nintendo products in general are very well made to resist damage. Kids don't treat consoles or handhelds w/ very much love, so it's smart on their part.
That does make sense. I'm sure us grown ups would also appreciate having a console that didn't damage as easily as modern smart phones.
Phewww! Cause I always store my systems in my microwave. >Actually, I liked the melted Wii.
That's great to know for the next time I go console shopping. That I can nuke it.
I like the video of him taking a sledgehammer to his Wii U. Basically, my kids are the equivalent of that sledgehammer, so if Nintendo products weren't made tough I wouldn't be able to keep my gaming stuff for more than a few hours.
That's nice to see. It's really durable... But, will it blend?
Nintendo has always made sturdy hardware. My Gamecube fell off the top of my dad's SUV (I set it on the roof and forgot about it) when I was a kid, and all it did was knock a gear loose -- after falling off mid-transit at about 30 mph and rolling off into a ditch on the side of the road. Opened it up and popped it back into place and it worked fine ever since. My Wii has also fallen on concrete twice and the only thing that messed up was the Eject button; just have to press it harder for it to work. :P
Maybe you should consider taking better care of your things. :I
I do now, just not when I was younger. I guess that's the reason Nintendo makes stuff to last. Kids have a tendency to be careless. xD
Just look at the Nintendo 64 that thing was a beast!
The thing that was great about the N64, and NES and Snes was no moving parts! The only thing that could go wrong is sometimes the pins rust.
Yep those things were built to last. Thankfully all three of mine still work :)
I own a wii u. Lets just say the operating system moves as fast as a tank lol. Other than that its not all that bad.
I did hear it was rather slow.
I have one too and it's not that slow.
Which tastes the best though and which leaves a foul taste in your mouth?
Strange things we do, strange things. Not strange enough to not watch though, I used to watch this guy on youtube who smashed stuff, mostly video game consoles. Sure, it was weird but none the less entertaining. Such a shame he stopped smashing stuff.
GameCube was the most durable console ever. Very compact. Sega Saturn was a beast too.
Gamecube was known to be the Nokia phones of the consoles. That thing can't break. (Unless you break the laser, which is what I did.)
Yea so they can make a slimmer revision of the game pad a year later lol and its a home console so durability isnt a big deal. No to be a Debbie downer
Probably the microwave will get more games than the WiiU though
Unfair. That was a next gen microwave.. and a current gen console :)
Nintendo hardware was always nigh unbreakable. I've seen both a N64 and a Gamecube take a rough tumble down a staircase and both still worked fine. Hell my Gameboy Color still works perfectly after years of abuse. Meanwhile if I dropped my PSP 1 foot it exploded, disk tray popped open and the UMD flew out, battery and the back panel flew off.
My DS Phat was probably the most durable system I've ever owned. I bought it used about 5 years ago, so I don't know how old it is, but damn that thing took hits like a champ. I've dropped the thing numerous times, and it always came out well. It eventually did break a bit, but even then it took dropping it on a hardwood floor from chest level, squarely on one of the hinges. It went downhill from there(The top screen's color is messed up), but it still works just fine for GBA stuff. Battery is shot, but that's normal for something that old. So yeah, Nintendo develops awesome hardware in that way.
