Nintendo Offers Free Wii to House Fire Victim

In a tragic story turned somewhat less tragic, a long time Nintendo gamer has been given a free Wii following a house fire which leveled everything. After posting pictures of his melted Wii (and other things) online, GoNintendo user PsyduckWarrior contacted Nintendo about transferring his content over to a new system.

Instead of simply offering apologies, Nintendo went well above the call by giving Psyduck a new Wii and a replacement Game Boy Advance SP. This is the type of positive PR that gains Nintendo brownie points in the gaming community, and they certainly need it in the face of the current software situation.
