I think Wii is a good console, I don't have any of the big 3 yet (Wii/PS3/360), but he's right, the launch consoles are really just a test phase to see what goes wrong. Why do you think sony only releases a few hundred thousand PS3's?? Because it's cheaper to warranty a few hundred thousand than several million. Every console that has ever been released has had problems, playstation, xbox, etc. etc., so it continues with the PS3, it overheats, and shuts down, doesn't play games properly, or not at all. The 360 had some similar problems until the second launch, and everything has been peachy after the fact. The Wii is not without it's problems though, even though the japanese manufacturers were a little more strict in thier design and research, they couldn't seem to keep a strap on someones' wrist from flinging thier controller through their bigscreen.
I'm waitin on the major release of the PS3, and I just haven't had the time to go get a 360 yet (I'm restoring 3 vehicles at once.)
It's all new tech, it's gonna have bugs, people only want to buy the first gen for two reasons-
10% are the kids/teens who actually want to play the uber-cool games and have no life
the other 90% want some jerk or idiotic parent to pay 5g's for it on ebay for thier repressed kid.
Wow, to think I was one. Well, still am, but now I'm smarter.

Well on the Nintendo side of things my family just got a Revolution, and so far so good. Red Steel as a game had the occasional issue, but over all it's an extremely fun game on an extremely fun console. Wii Sports hasn't given me a single issue aside from boxing needing a little bit of fine tuning.
So for now I'd say the Revolution is safe to buy. Even the wrist strap issue has proven to be a matter of using a little common sense.
