Java is a real language, and a lot of real programs have been written with it. It's not a good language, but that doesn't make it trivial.
Its no better or worse than any other languages out there. If you think it is, then you probably need to get out of your mom's basement and into the real business world more.
You're kidding right?
I still play my N64 now, and the original controller which has been thrashed to death on Goldeneye, Mario 64 etc is still working perfectly. Nintendo are known for designing robust controllers and consoles.
Comparing what SONY copied from the controller more than a year after Nintendo had released their version is just a strawman - Nintendo subsequently released N64 controllers with built-in rumble that didn't require extra battery. All SONY did was look at what Nintendo did, and copy them. The original PS1 controllers didn't even have analogue in them - so saying SONY had better controllers is laughable at best.
Inadequate cooling system - again my N64 has never hung, after tens of thousands of hours of play. Compare this to my PS1 that after a while I had to have the PS1 upside down just so it would read disks, and it ended up scratching games. My brothers PS1 just stopped working fullstop and had to be replaced with a PS-X.
Cartridges are far more robust than CD's. What would happen to a CD if your children kept taking it out of the console while the console was going?
Given that Nintendo are renowned for creating sturdy hardware that rarely fails, it seems like you have a massive chip on your shoulder. N64 magazine UK got a bus to drive over an N64, as well as dropping it out a hotel window, and it still worked perfectly afterwards.
