to a SquareTrade report on game console reliability, the humble Wii is about as reliable as a Swiss clock, a Japanese car or an American shotgun.

Basically, Nintendo's white toy is 9 times more reliable than Xbox 360, 4 times more than PS3. Over two years of use, just 2.7 percent of Wii users reported a failure. One in ten Playstation 3 users also saw their pricey toy expire, while Xbox 360 owners reported failures in 23.7 percent of all consoles sold.
