14 months is average time I see, just outside the 1 year warranty offered by Sony that the lasers usually fail, especially on the newer slim ones.

I'm always bummed when pre-owned games are not an option. Game trading is how my husband makes his living.
That said, we'll probably get one when it comes out - we always do.

That's weird... my cousin is a "no life" and he has never brought his PS3 or Xbox for repair in about 3 years. I agree on the price of the PS4 going to be really high, but I would never get a WiiU instead. I got a Wii already, and it didn't hold my interest for very long. :/

Same here. I consider my wii 'the Zelda/Mario machine'. I get one of those titles, beat it in week, and then don't touch the system for a year.

I have one of the older 80gb models. I have had it for 5 years with no mods and no problems. All I do is occasionally blow it out with an air compressor.

A few JRPGs are coming to the Wiiu and I believe a Fire Emblem x SMT crossover, so they're at least expanding Nintendo's offerings.

The only game I'm interested in on the Wii U is Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate. Other than that, I'm not really a fan of the Nintendo IP's.

This is the trick to keeping your machine healthy for a long time . My original ps3 died because I didn't keep up with my dusting

Did that to my original 360 too. Once the warranty was up, off came the top. It's every bit of 5 years old and still works. The disc drive crapped out but the xbox still works otherwise.

Are any of you PS3 users excited? I'm not. :/
You're blaming Sony because you're late to the train? The PS3 has been out a whopping 7 years I think. This generation of consoles has also been the longest.

It's about time they release new consoles, the ps3 and 360 are outdated. They don't even play most games at true 1080p and can't play games at 60FPS.

I understand a few of you have systems that still work, and that's good. I was just trying to say, I have been fixing these for about 6 years now and have done probably 1500-2000 and that's just in my smallish city, with at least 2 other business fixing them in the city as well. It's not like a 90% failure rate, but it's not a 1-2% either.
