Nintendo makes quality products. Their systmes, controllers, and accesseries typically last and don't break. If Wii's were produced and made like Sony's PS2, then everyone who owns a wii would have to buy one or two more to replace their broken piece of crap wiis.
If that happened (which it won't becuase Nintendo makes quality hardware and accesseries), the Wii would sell double the current install base of the PS2 by 2010. lol.
I have a PlayStation 2 (phat) that has had no problems. Same with my friends. Don't know where you got all that PS2 breaks easy stuff from.
