PS3 like a tortoise...nice, slow and steady but wins everytime.

I dont know if this story is true or not; but fixing something, does in fact, by logic, indicate a problem.

Nintendo systems are indestructible. It's hard to believe a little heat from a LED light is killing them.

Edit - Just noticed i lost a bubble. I wonder if it has anything to do with reporting a few flamebait story submissions earlier? Did i hurt someones feelings? :)

This actually happened to one of my friends. This system overheated for no apparent reason. The situation? He left his Wii in stanby mode while he was on vacation. He came back 2 weeks later and his Wii was fried. It wouldn't acknowledge any input. He sent it in to Nintendo and they replaced it within 1 week.

However, he did leave it in a smaller cubby hole within his entertainment system, which is probably not a good idea.

As much as a company tries to work out all the issues, there is always going to be some defect somewhere on some system. This is the price we pay for more complex and powerful technology.

My bubbles come and go as well but recently I noticed I have someone ignoring me. I must have an ability to seriously annoy someone. Is there a way to see who's tracking you or ignoring you?

Most people that know just turn of the wiiconnect24 option so that their Wii does not overheat the GPU.

I'm sure this is just a small problem that Nintendo will get sorted out, but I did find this last line in the article amusing:

"In the meantime, if you're worried about your Wii burning up, just deactivate WC24 - it's proved to be a non-essestial feature so far anyway."

-Now that wasn't neccessary, -lol
