    OK so, I bricked my wii using an update on wii sports resort. So I phoned nintendo and they sent me a refurbished one no charge and without warranty! Pretty sweet huh?

    All I had to do is tell them I had nothing but a black screen and it came from wii sports resort. Also I had every hack under the sun. Iso loaders, homebrew channel everything. But I got a refurbished one with a one year warranty from them when I sent mine in.

    USA and Canada have the best customers service in the entire world, just cause "The Customer is Always RIGHT", I'm not that surprised about it, but if your Wii had the boot1 exploitable, you'd loose in this exchange...!! [​IMG]

    Cool. So if I didnt have a Wii, I could call Nintendo, tell them that my Wii doesnt work and I get a new one? Sweet deal.

    Should be the same for the Xbox360 or PS3. You get free consoles by calling the center.
