Whereas on the PS3, there have been no hardware issues. The only issue they have, is the backwards compatibility issue, which is currently being worked, as it is a minor software issue.


Well I still don't think there is enough to this article to decide whether or not it was a hardware. The guy said it happened under "somewhat normal circumstances." Who knows what he means by that. He might have whipped it forward very quickly (faster than is needed to play the game) and then let go of the controller, putting all the stress on the strap. And just look at the PS3 boards if you want to see what problems are happening with the PS3. There are problems with all launch consoles.

Yeah I heard about that. Apparently some early production models didn't come with the latest firmware and require a disc with the updates on it. I don't know how these consoles got out without the necessary updates, but I guess they're taking care of it.

This thread should be labled, " This is why you don't let an idiot use a Wii". I played the Wii non-stop yesterday with my friend and I don't think it is possible to break that...unless you're an idiot.

That's clearly fake...  The guy just wants attention...  And money from Nintendo, which is gonna be funny because he's gonna lose money...

thats a stupid reason to not get it...i mean its called holding onto the controller...why would you swing your arm so fast that it slips right out of your hand?....and moving your arm that fast probably wouldnt make the strap break....
