I have a launch day wii.... I got my Xbox 4 years ago and have never had an issue.
Anyone here still have a LAUNCH day system?
Launch day Wii, no problems. I was also about to get a launch day DS but ended up grabbing a PS2 Slim instead and it launched a few weeks before...so I guess that sort of counts? While I'm on the subject of the PS2 slim, does anyone happen to know if it's possible to tighten the disc tray lid? It doesn't close properly so the hardware thinks the tray is still open and I have to place a weight on top of the system. I guess worst case scenario I can do a visual mod of the console that places a bit more weight on top.
lol nope -mine died in 6 months , and had 9 others do the exact same thing or other problem , had to repair one at least 7 times and 2 re buys , -totaling 9 ,

and the only handheld i have from launch is a dslite 3ds vita gba gbasp gbmicro and gbc i had to replace ds and psp multiple times especally the later
I have had 3 Playstation 2's. The first one was getting disc read errors after 2-3 months. The second one lasted at least a year before it developed the same problem. The third one, is the slim model, and it's my backup for when the 2nd one eventually goes fully kaput.
My launch day 360 lasted me 2.5 years. My 2nd one, lasted 6 months, and has been refurbished and is still working. I bought a 150watter to replace that one, and that is still going strong, although it is currently packed away now that I used the Star Wars model.
I have a DS Phat, a DS Lite, a DS Lite XL and an Aqua 3DS. NONE of those have malfunction - except the hinge on the phat broke when it fell onto carpet.
My softmod Wii (Mario Kart+Wheel bundle version) is still going strong.
DO NOT ask me about PC's, but let me just say I have had rough times with ASUS products (mostly their optical drives fail, a motherboard blew on me taking most of my system with it, and a gfx card blew).
