It might just be Thor and Odin both displaying their own warped and twisted sense of humour but when Bioware's Jeff Hickman had a bolt of lightning come-a knocking at his chamber door one night, the Wii was the only console to survive.

The bolt not only toasted his Xbox 360 and PS3, it took out several other pieces of equipment including his Rock Band drums and a bunch of surround sound gear. It also struck the retainer in his daughter's mouth just for good measure (Eeek!) but thankfully no humans were harmed, just a lot of expensive gaming gear. 

Hickman sagely noted that the Wii being the only survivor could hold a message for all of us. God thinks your hobby sucks, so he's going to leave you with the worst platform of the three when lightning strikes.

I sense a marketing opportunity for Nintendo. The Nintendo Wii - So powerful it eats lightning for breakfast!
