jpmccord commented on Wii "Most Reliable Console of This Generation":

My console history...

I still have my NES (new in 1987), Sega Genesis (new in 1992), SNES (used in 1996), N64 (new in 1997), PS2 (new in 2001), and Wii (new in 2008). The only one I've ever had any problem with at all is the original NES, and it's just the standard problems with blowing the cartridges and hoping it works. I'm thinking about getting the slot fixed at a local game shop.

I've been most surprised by the longevity of the PS2. Over the years, I have read countless stories about how easily they tear up. I have played dozens of games on it, and it had been my only DVD player since 2001 until I got a standalone player just a couple of months ago. It's been used more than any other console I own. And it still works great to this day.

But... I prefer the Wii and classic Nintendo games. :)
