Oh, yeah. I'm a Nintenfag/Xbot. Hence why I own 129 Piece-of-shitstation 2 (or whatever the appropriate faggot term for PS2 is) games.

As well as a Sony Vaio and Sony MD Player.
No, see, it takes one to know one. I know Sony's support is crap because I've had to deal with it when my Vaio was having problems.
I can't vouch whether or not Nintendo's customer support is crap, though, because I haven't had to deal with it. Maybe I'll go break my Wii on purpose just so I can see what they're gonna do about it.
But yes, I agree there's a window of opportunity in which to get Sony hardware. My first PS2 was a first-gen ones that broke. My second one was the second-gen of slim ones; I'm told slim's first-gen eventually broke, while slim's third-gen doesn't have 100% compatibility with PS games and even some of the real early PS2 games.
