That logic doesn't fly. 360 was the leader of the console wars until Wii came along and had their flaws published all over the place. Nintendo hardware has been flawless for years. Microsoft and Sony both have questionable track records with gaming hardware (PS1 had tons of issues, 360 of this gen) but not Nintendo.
