Problems with Wii

Ahhh the Wii....... apart from providing an opportunity to write far more interesting headlines, it appears design difficulties with the strap attached to the Wii-mote is causing the most horrendous of injuries to electronic equipment, threatening the life-time of your brand new HD TV, plasm screen or Laptop and potentially endangering the bone structure of your favourite old person.

Luckily a brand new website entitled "Wii have a problem" is documenting such horrendous accidents. See the carnage first hand on

Wii have a Problem


And if that doesn't keep chill the very marrow in your bones take a look at,

the top ten Wii complaints from 1up

Still not flabbering a gaster, then perhaps you'll want to check out a graphics comparison between the xbox360 and the much lauded graphical superiority of the Ps3. It will leave you a bit puzzled as to what type of medication Ken Kutaragi was on when he said:

"With the PS3, our intentions have been to create a machine with supercomputer calculation capabilities for home entertainment...You can experience the 4D world."

For some reason 1UP has completely stopped working for me. I just can't access the site from this PC at all!

I should check it on the other PC first, before delving into my router :-(

(throws a duvet cover over Fatherkrishna...... leaves a glass of water and two anadin beside the couch....leaves a "i feckin love you too card" next to the glass)

Hiya Tom!....1up has slowed down significantly for me, though i normally access the site with firefox..... it may just be heavy traffic on that particular article...

my hair stands on end (no mean feat) when i hear talk of a router......

Tom said...

I mean the whole site though, on either Firefox or IE.

It hasn't worked in months :-(

Feels warm glow of acceptance and love. Lights fag, begins to feel nauseous then gets up, stumbles towards the bathroom to throw up and soils himself... Oh well, just another day... LOL! happy days!
