You would almost expect this.... its was just made and people everywhere want it. Maybe if they didn't use cheaper parts there wouldn't be any bugs.
how is this different from any other console launch on this planet. no company has ever had the perfect launch, everyone has had problems with some, everyone bitches about something and yet life goes on, revisions are made, patches are sent and all is well.
PS3 overheating, no rumble on launch
Xbox 360 ring of death
People throwing their wii motes through tv's because the strap broke
Original xbox controllers were too big
if you buy a warranty you have nothing to lose, if you don't think its stable enough wait for the next batch in a few months.
I'm seriously considering it. When I first got my Wii I resold it for for $800:D
I've read elsewhere that the consoles also brick completely if they lose internet connectivity or power during the update that runs on every initial start up... Not sure how preventable that is but it seems really sloppy on Nintendo's part.
Also in a tear-down it revealed that the hardware inside was comparable and similar to high end tablets too?
Come in Nintendo! I knew they were gonna put something out that was ahead of the PS3 and 360 Hardware wise and it wouldn't be on par for raw power with Sony and Microsoft's next gen's but tablet equivalent power seems sloppy too.
Hopefully Nintendo can work it out cause the tablet controller concept seems like even more fun that motion control implemented with the Wii, and ZombieU in particular looks like it's gonna be a hell of a game
I'm guessing your meant "Plagued", sorry, I had to lol ;P
I will probably buy this down the road to add to our console collection, but I'll wait until after the rush is over and wait until all the bugs are fixed. I always find when a new console is released there always seems to be a bunch of problems, software and hardware related.
We are stoked to play Batman on it, it looks frackin awesome!
