I just came back from a weeks vacation, and brought back a Wii that was essentially a birthday gift. The Wii Sports game disc is mildly scratched as it is now, but nothing deep and/or serious. Every time I try and start it up, it gives me an error either requiring me to power down my Wii and try again later, or call nintendo support. It's late now so I'm calling tomorrow morning, has anyone else had any problems with the Wii?

The kids sometimes get that they can't turn the Wii off other than pulling the power cord in the back.

I dont have a single problem with it or Wii sports.

Do the problems come when you turn on your wii or try to play wii sports? If it's the latter, have you tried playing another game, and does that work?

I have no problems turning the Wii on, or making a Mii or anything, only when I put in Wii Sports do I get the problem. Once my dad comes home I'm going to go get Zelda Twilight Princess.

Bah, I've called Nintendo, they're sending a new one from Syracuse that should be here in a few days. I'll send mine back once I receive theirs. At least their customer service seems to care about you, which is more than I can say about other Gaming companies.

So far I haven't been able to play yet, my (busted) Wii still won't read any discs. All I can do now is wait for the new Wii to come. I can stare at the disc though.

My Wii came today, and I finally got to play Twilight Princess. So far it's pretty good, feels just like playing Final Fantasy again with a story I don't know.

I played the demo the other night. I couldn't really do much in terms of gameplay, as my computer is kind of lacking in the "Good Parts" department, but Rapture as a concept is amazing.
