Nintendo Wii U
When I first came up with the idea for this gallery, the primary reason I was going to say not to get a Wii U is because you literally couldn't, even if you wanted to! They were sold out everywhere. Since that time, however, stores have stocked back up and I managed to nab one. While I've enjoyed it so far, there's a growing number of unfortunate individuals who are having their Wii Us die on them -- everything from not working on day-one, to one day turning on the console, only to see a slowly-blinking power light forever more.
Nintendo seems to be doing a good job of sending replacement units to those affected by the problem, but just beware that the Wii U you seek to buy for someone to open on Christmas day may just be a faulty unit. If anything could be worse than the age-old not getting batteries with a battery-operated gift, this would be it!
