Nintendo Wii Most Reliable Game Console

SquareTrade, the largest independent warranty provider in the world has declared the the Nintendo Wii is the most reliable console on the market. Squaretrade compared malfunction rates the Nintendo Wii, Microsoft Xbox360 and the Sony PS3 and found that the Wii is the least likely to turn into a mini Chernobyl. The Nintendo Wii had a failure rate just one-fourth of the Sony PS3 and one-ninth of the Xbox 360.

SquareTrade also provide great news for all Xbox 360 owners, the study found with the introduction of the "Jasper" chipset in late 2008 has helped solved the Infamous RROD problem which has plague Microsoft since the debut of the Xbox 360.

Now many may argue that people obviously play their Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 way more than people play their Wii. The Ps3 and 360 has a steady and still growing community of hardcore gamers so they tend to play a lot more. The Wii tends to lean and cater towards a more, casual, family-based demographic.

After accounting for usage, the Wii still ranked the least likely to fail, with a 0.31 percent failure rate per day of use. The Ps3 on the other hand failed 75 percent more frequently and the 360 lagged far behind with a 435 percent(not a typo) the failure rate of the Xbox 360.
