launch day Wii still works perfectly, had 2 red rings and I only owned a ps3 at the very end of the generation.

All 3 are up and running now tho, and never had to pay for the 360s repairs cos I got it early and had a proper dodgy system originally which is so refurbished at this stage I think it's innards are made of diamonds just so the repair guys never have to see it again haha.

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games?

The graphics card on my ps3 crapped out eventually. Can't remember how long it was exactly though.

Just interested since I'm always hearing of people talking badly about launch versions of consoles.

Launch versions only. Launch window of a few months is ok.


edit: Looks like I really should've excluded the Wii like I initially intended -.-

I have a launch 60GB Fat PS3 that my parents still use for blueray, dvd, and the occasional sing star.  It's gpu has issues with some of the more demanding games, but anything light or well polished (COD, 1st party) works fine.  

Prediction for console Lifetime sales:

Wii:100-120 million, PS3:80-110 million, 360:70-100 million

[Prediction Made 11/5/2009]

3DS: 65m, PSV: 22m, Wii U: 18-22m, PS4: 80-120m, X1: 35-55m

I gauruntee the PS5 comes out after only 5-6 years after the launch of the PS4.

I don't but I would just like to mention I am on a slim ps3 250gb since 4 years, 1 month and 17 days... still going strong.

No surprise, but my original model Wii (purchased Feb 2007) never malfunctioned.

True Story Bro': My Zephyr model XB360, purchased Spring/Summer 2007, NEVER RRoDed or malfunctioned in any way to date. It did see pretty light use though.

ps3 60 gigger still kicking

Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

Not since launch but since 2010 to be precise, my Slim PS3 never had a fault. Same goes to other consoles and even my PC, never had these kind of problems. Controllers on the other hand..sometimes intentionally ^-^(*)

...Let the Sony Domination continue with the PS4...

I have a launch 360 believe it or not. It stopped working for a while (something with the disc drive), but now it works again for some reason :)

I have sold all my consoles but my xbox 360 broke after 3.5 years (i had bought a extended warranty of one year on top of Microsoft's 3 year for red ring so it covered it).
My PS3 original was sold after 7 years and still worked.
My wii also never has any issues.

I bought them all at launch, only launch console still kicking is the wii...
