Apparently, Nintendo may have taken a page out of the Sony Playstation 2 operating manual when it comes to reading dual-layer disks. According to a story over at PCWorld
, Super Smash Bros Brawl
(which released over the weekend) may not work on certain Wii's primarily due to the console having problems reading the dual layer disk. In addition, if you hit the Support Page
for Super Smash Bros Brawl, it has no fewer than four issues listed including this one. From my experience in the Home Theater industry, this screams of bad lasers. Nintendo is saying that a "small percentage" have the issue and they will fix them for free. Problem is, you have to send in your Wii to the free clinic to have it examined and repaired.
