My Wii started to freeze!

My Wii started to freeze!
Sometimes I can play for about 5 minutes, sometimes 1 hour, but every time it ends with it freezing. It doesn't matter if it is a disc game, a channel a classic downloaded game... I bought it at the release.. 
 
Do you have any suggestions on what I can do?
Should I just get a new one since there is no warranty left??

 I figure it would still be worth a shot to talk to Nintendo support about it, especially since there's no way I know of for you to transfer your downloads to the new system.  I had a DS Lite break on me out of warranty a couple years ago and I was still able to get it replaced for free.
 
So in the end even if they can't fix your system, maybe they can replace it for free or less than the cost of a new system.

Yeah, call Nintendo support. And if you can't fix it, and you actually like your Wii then I guess you will have to buy it again? 
 
Also, see if Nintendo can do this -

Yeah, I guess I have nothing to lose in contacting em.. I just hope the Wii will see a price cut soon .. although there are a lot of used ones out there, maybe I should get one cheap and "play" with it a little ^^
