This is not new news. It's not even old news. This post is unabashedly about ancient news. But sometimes even ancient news bears repeating.
Considering just how much we Canucks love to buy Wii's, don't forget that Nintendo offers a 90-day warranty extension for people who register their consoles on Nintendo.com.
It's easy, it's painless, and it's free. Who knows, a simple registration might just save you some repair money down the road.
