Default A Wii is not a piggy bank

Just got home from Florida today to find out that my son deposited at least 4 coins in our month old Wii.

One dime came out the way it went in. The rest won't, so apart it will be. The screws most of which are hidden are 3pt tri-wing, thanks Nintendo

I hope it still works nothing like a broken wii

Where did you order it from?

I am sure he will try it again. He already broke the VCR by jamming shit in it.

Separate the screws I was being lazy and didn't think that there would be 5 different types.

Did Nintendo farm out their engineering to Romania on this project?

The slide show feature with the SD card is great though. No more huddling around the laptop. The wii plays the video clips and pictures seamlessly. Can't wait to get an HD TV now :)

if you chip your wii, you can download games and play them from the SD card.
