I had a first gen PS2 for over a year and transported it every weeknd to my cousins house where we sometimes played it for like 30 hours or more over 2 days, and I never had one problem with it. I ended up selling it after I got married and it worked fine up til then.
I have now had the Slim version for about 1 year and I don't get much chance to play but it has always worked fine.
But I do agree that waiting awhile for the price to drop and the bugs to be worked out is certainly a wise decision. But if I had the time to play and the money to get it, I'd probably buy the PS3 ASAP.
As far as Wii, it looks cool and the price is better, but I kind of have a prejudice against Nintendo, just seems kinda childish to me. I am kind of intrigued by the controller idea, though.

OK you guys I will ask you this.

Go to the back of your PS2 and you will see a label on the back, There is a code like this below.


SCPH-XXXXX

Fill in the blank for me and I will bet you that you do not have the first series PS2.

I always end up getting almost all the consoles that come out (starting with the nintendo/sega gen), but I always find my self playing the nintendo console the most. So I will be going for the Wii. I loved my playstation 1, but I thought the PS2 was buns. The loading times are horrible and all the games I was salivating for were a real dissapointment. I never played any of them for more than 5 hours. I will probably pick up a PS3 when they are cheap like maybe 4 to 5 years from now. For now I just wanna play with my Wii!

Nintendo= quality over quantity and hype
Sony= make a lot of it, make it quick
Microsoft= sell testosterone

just my $0.02

It'* at my house and I'm in school, but I assure you, it'* the first gen. I bought it from my friend who waited in line with his dad for a whole day to reserve it, and he got it the first day it came out.
I know that because I played it the first day it came out.

Wii. More innovative, cheaper, and the Nintendo fanbase

IMO, sony needs to do more than upgrading graphics. $600 for a video game console is also nuts.

Go Nintendo!
