I reported with MS awhile back it screwed up a couple of my games and (from the best I could make out since the person didn't speak english well) that it must be my fault.

Well, my favorite quote from the whole post, which was actually part of the quoted statement itself, was this one:

"While we are aware that discs can potentially be scratched through normal wear and tear, we have not received any widespread reports of the issue highlighted here."

"Wear and tear"? A disc just sits on a spinner and spins. There's no "wear and tear" involved other than how haphazardly a person treats it and possibly the hole in the CD's center that affixes to the spinner itself. But I digress, I have CDs that are 14 years old that still play flawlessly. The only "wear and tear" on the disc is being done by the 360 itself.

that it must be my fault.

Obviously, since you only bought the 360 and a myriad of games all in the expectation the discs would have a lifespan longer than yours.

This is the kind of shit that pisses me off; especially with a console I really think has the greatest potential of the three major players out there.

And Death to Sequels has the gall to say the "Wii sucks, too"? The damn thing survived longer than my 360; and that was only because I dropped it. And guess what? When I said that to the the Nintendo rep, they replaced it! On warranty, of course, but I didn't have to jump through any loops with them as I had with MS in the past.

"Wear and tear" my ass.

*comes running back* OK, I read the previous posts from the other day. Yes, I have Wii, PS3, and 360. (I think all three systems are overrated because of this console fanboy war crap. The Wii, to me, is the most overrated.)

A new Wii is $150 more than a new Gamecube. Going by Ebay, a used Wii is $300 more than a used Gamecube. Warioware, Super Monkey Ball, and Trauma Center are the only three Wii games with a score higher than 8 on Gamespot. All the other 8+ Wii games are either Virtual Console games, or Gamecube games that were ported to the Wii (Paper Mario/Zelda). Were those three games worth the upgrade from Gamecube to Wii? Trauma Center is a game that is totally doable on a standard PC mouse. You could port that game to the PS3 or PC, hook up a USB mouse, and bada-bing, Trauma Center on the PS3/PC. So that leaves two games: Warioware and Monkey Ball.

Now let's talk about Monkey Ball. Monkeyball has a Gamerankings.com score of 73% (gamespot had 8.3). Not sure if we want to talk about a 73% game as the poster child of an awesome system, right? K, so that leaves Warioware. Now that's a great game. But it's the only system seller, IMO, that actually sells the Wii itself. One good game for $150-$300? And you say the Wii is a sign Nintendo isn't for kids anymore. Warioware isn't exactly Spielberg gaming.

Yeah, and the 360 could magically drop in price to $4.99 tomorrow.

And I could win the lottery...

Except none of those have happened yet...

Hmm...

I have a feeling that this upcomming XBLA Minigolf Adventures is going to be more fun than most games on Wii are right now, in all fairness the Wii needs a bit longer yet for some decent games (and more Nintendo First Party titles especially). However it is overhyped by now.

Sorry, scrub the comment I made about the minigolf game being better than Wii games, I stand corrected. Just played it, it's average at best...
