PostSubject: wii took a sheet   Sat Dec 11, 2010 11:44 am

currently my wii is down, stopped reading the disks, here it move a little bit, can get it to tell me what disc is in the wii, but won't load anything. I couldn't find a cleaner locally so I have ordered it thru nintendy an still am waiting 3 days later for package.

couple of questions,

does this sound like the cleaner will help?

if it doesn't I hear it is 90 bucks when all is said an done to get it fixed, should I trade mine in for 55 bucks an buy a used one for 119, would only cost me 74? I know lose all my info, but cheaper.

other option is, to get a (in a quiet voice) ps3 or xbox. I think the move is going to catch on an is a better system then the wii, I haven't heard anything about a new wii system coming out, with money tight this might be the best time for me to get one, because as long as the wii works wife won't probly consider another system.

I am looking for honest answers, I know seigies seems to love his ps3 an most of the fogs have gone to the ps3. Next year more games will come out for the move to work with.

An yes I know that would limit my time here at zh, an I wouldn't be able to play with any of you till you walk on the darkside with me.

I am at a tough place, love the peeps here, love wii controls, hate the lag, lack of graphics, lack of options or being jipped of options in games. so what would you do?

Your probably looking at sending the stupid thing in. Mine (fingers crossed) hasnt had any problems yet but it sounds like a pop corn maker when its running.

I hate to say this but you are a friend so I will......I would just get a new system. Im only going to have a death grip on mine because of ZH, and the fact that I like the other Ninteno games but as far as FPS games this thing is a pain in the bum.

In fact if everybody here (core members I mean) switched to the other systems then ya I would too. Im not in a position where it would be hard to get one. My wife has been wanting a PS3 or XBox for a while but shes not as hard core into it like me. But if I did then there would be some competition for the new one. Anyhow Im babbling but point is the Wii is getting to be a pile of crap, if mine died I would have a pretty hard choice to make.

Hey I would say try cleaning it first. its gotta be a dirty eye if it can still tell you what disc is in.

Also if you go on the PS3 side you limited just like the wii. one Perfect example is BO for the PS3. NO Split Screen (2 player action). Thats just one little example.

Another thing is.....I was given a 360 couple months ago and my mom got me the BO for the 360. I got to admit 360 may have its flaws but I would NEVER NEVER get a PS3. They're is just so many more options for the xbox. And if your one of the people that say "hey if i get the ps3 i get a blue ray player as well..." Well as much as that is true you have to remember the eye reader reads GAME disc at a totally different speed than blue ray disc. (Games FASTER READING SPEED/ BLUE Ray SLOWER READER SPEED) So Another words is its not really meant to play movies. It can...But not perferred.

Thats just my Thoughts please dont bash me for not having BO for the Wii. I WILL get it soon. It just i really wish we had more life here..... I miss everyone Sad

most people are not on here, because we chat during our online games. it is a advantage to read the blue ray, an selling point to wife. to me the picture is better for ps3, an from what I hear they dummy down graphics for ps3 so xbox don't get mad.

what would u be looking at bone if you had to chose???? xbox, or ps3.

another thing I hear alot about xbox breaking an so forth, not to say ps3 is perfect but not as many problems, plus I am not hot on paying for online. an I like the move choice.

Swim, there's split screen online LOL on the ps3.
I was playing it with Tom Slaya's brother at his house (and for you all who don't know who Tom Slaya is, he was a very old ZHer back in MoHH2 days. One of the greatest players that stumbled upon ZH. He's a close friend of mine and if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be in ZH LOL)

Hmm, tough choice. One crazy thing ive been seeing lately now and I wonder why, is wii's are dropping like flies. Eagle over in CD also sorta broke like Ants. It cant read disks. Im wondering if its BO or something. So far mine does sound like a popcorn machine but still up. Its the original and I got it the first day.

As for choosing a system, all have their flaws which I think makes them equal. So far in 1 yr my Xbox took a sheet twice. one was covered by the warranty but the other is a pain. Right now im still thinking about what to do with it cuz $99 to repair it sounds like a pain. Plus the 1 yr sub is running out so imma have to bust out 60 bucks. As for the PS3 i dunno what swim is talking about but my cousins PS3 is the original 80GB. It still works and he just bout a 3d TV and says it plays the blueray dvds fine on the ps3. But PS3 is also like wii in the sense that mappacks come out 1 month after xbox, so some things are different. But I think XBOX is a lot of cash to deal with. And PS3 isn't but sometimes it also has the red dot of death where the laser burns out like a comps.

Lastly, after this long paragraph lol. Im more into wii because of the controls and mindset of the people. Ive run into real douches(pardon my french) on XBOX. Like how I quit MW2, some dude called me a nub and got into arguments with the whole team and cussing happened and after that I quit the game because people take those systems more serious. Naturally Im a analog stick guy because Ive had a ps2 for so long and other gamesystems. But so Far wii has come to be my fav(other than my gameboy pocket)
so its all based on preference, people will be better and itll be like GB everytime you play on the other systems, faster play, no fun, more expensive but good graphics and such.

sorry about your wii ant. my feelings are this. i've only bought nintendo products (and atari) the only nintendo i haven't bought was the virtual boy, but i played it. i bought a ps3 after trying out 360 and ps3 in the store and at friends houses. to me the ps3 has some cool features, blueray, hd gaming, free online, messaging, online chat, photo, video, music library, online store, netflix, internet browser. the 360 has the same and the only difference i can see is voice messaging and having to pay to get grief and owned online. i really don't like the 360 controller, it's like playing a dinner plate to me. nintendo will always be my console of choice, there are some disappointing things about all systems, but i'd rather play a bad wii game and have fun, then play pong in my basement or gears of war, lol.

I have a PS3 since July but I never even turned it on once. If you ask me, I would get the Wii fixed; even if it means sending it in for repairs or buying a used Wii. I can understand the BluRay capability of the PS3 is a selling point for you and your wife but fixing the Wii is still like the cheaper option to keep playing.

You mentioned the lag, lack of features and the inferior graphics that the Wii offers but is it worth giving up the friends and the good times over the years playing on Wii? Keep in mind we paid $10 less for Black Ops compared to players on X360 and PS3; not to mention you have to pay for subscriptions on some. Buying a HD console means you need a HD TV (and a HDMI cable); if you don't already have one, you're looking to spend even more money.

If it was really me I would get a new Wii or fix the old. A new system means a new learning curve so your fun will be cut down til you get past that. Also you would be getting owned for some time...

Remember the on the fly clan war we had a while back? Fun wasnt it? Wouldnt be the same without you bud.

I just hate to say "Fix your Wii" because you could have the same problem in a year.

OH BTW....

I took a high pressure air hose to mine. Blew it out best I could and it helped. Had a sh*t ton of dust in it. I dont think people do that often enough.

I have thought about doing that, but my wife is saying been there done that, the ps3 is now looking like the way I am going to head. the cleaner did nothing for me. I hope it works for rhyno(or was it rebel?).

I hate to leave this group, love the peeps here an hope to play with them, well be around to see who else makes a jump in the future.

From what I am hearing the move for ps3 is very good, more games coming out with it soon, kill zone 3? then there is mag a huge online gaming system. I hear siegies saying that he loves his wii, but how much has he been playing it? an how much is he playing his ps3?

Yes I will be missing all of the fogs here, an the fygs are unforgettable, lots of maturity an love an respect here. But be honest what do you think of the new systems, kinecitc or the move compared to the wii? nothings changed for the wii, an so far nothing new in the works.

For what it's worth, I am a hardcore Sony fan. Every TV, DVD/Blu-Ray player, digital camera and even alarm clock(!) I've ever bought are branded Sony. And yet, I've never turned my PS3 on once since I got it as a gift in the summer. That should tell you how much I love playing on the Wii. But if I ever make the switch, I will be playing Gran Turimso 5 over any sci-fi FPS.

Personally, the friends I've made over the years will be enough reason for me to fix my Wii if it was ever broken.

I guess this is goodbye, Ant. It will be different without you in my party.

Welp, like we said Ant wii I don;t think was made for 1st person shooters. It was predominantly for those exclusives like zelda and metroid and cool motion things. But if you are being mad about Black Ops and how it isn't living up to what its supposed to, is every system has problems. And from what I can gather Ps3 is the one with the second most problems with the game. Another thing is the competitiveness in the other systems goes up tenfold, so if your good now people will be even better when you switch. I got a wii as a present when it first came out. And as for the 360 my brother plays it a majority of the time. Mostly he's glued to the TV screen once he comes home. When he was playing wii he wasn't necessarily like that lol. He's changed a lot due to playing 360 because of the level you play at and the people you meet. But ya its just preference, so if you do leave been nice knowing you and hope the ps3 works out for you.

lastly heres a vid of some people I subscribe to on the tube. They are right on lots of subjects and very informative on games and stuff. But this vid is bout his problems so far with black ops. while him playing bops lol. its some commentary. lol
