This morning Wii owners everywhere felt a stab of fear when Workmeng posted how some early shipment Wii's error out reading SSBB
. Well, that small fear turned into a a major problem, because I just went out a bought SSBB this morning and got the worst message ever...
I present, EPIC NINTENDO FAIL!
Well, now I have to call Nintendo and get the damn thing replaced. On the plus side, my Wii's drive sounded like it was chewing on the DvDs rather than reading them (no scraching though thankfully) and so atleast I won't have to worry about that anymore...
Now I have SSBB sitting infront of me taunting me, and I'm sure I'll have to suffer though a couple weeks of this... I feel your pain 360 owners.
CURSE YOU NINTENDO!
UPDATE: One of my friends waited in the exact same Wii launch line I did and got the Wii right after mine. He also bought SSBB this morning and his Wii is playing just fine and he's seen no errors whatsoever. A quick comparison of our Wii info shows that his was actually a different production run, even though we both got them at launch and at the same store.
So just because you bought a Wii on "release day" you may actually have a second production run version that seems to handle SSBB just fine. Keep those fingers crossed!
