Aside from the NES's random blink of death which could be fixed by cleaning and rebending the contact springs has had the best track record when it comes to the hardware side only because their systems are so basic yet complex.

PS1 had the issue of the cd laser wearing out and dropping down and to fix this you'd play your machine upside down.

PS2 had the issue for the longest time of movie playback too dark.

PS3 has the heating issue but if you saw the guts its no wonder! Stick a 120mm fan on the inside of that thing and it'll work awesome.

Xbox had the brick of fire

Xbox 360 has the ring of death

LOL 1st thing a Wii is not a next-gen console. It's like a glorified gamecube. Don't get me wrong though, a Wii is fun as hell to play, specially if you got a few brews in ya.
