    lol, wich is worse...a bunch of ac adapter's that overheat and melt....or very few shorting psu's that cause house fires..


    so...once again nintendo is the only one without these huge hardware problems...

    sony was the first with a class action lawsuit against the laser's..then xbox got one...then ms replaced the cables...and sony has to do it now...

    maybe thats why the gc doesnt sell that well...there's not enough problems with it...
