Did you pop in Brawl
early this morning, only to find out that it wouldn't play? You're not the only one.
A number of Wii owners on this side of the globe are reporting problems similar to ones seen in Japan
-- disc errors, supposedly caused by dirty laser lenses. Since Smash Bros
. is the Wii's first game that's on dual-layered DVD, it's extra sensitive to such problems.
The good news is that Nintendo will fix the problem for you. The bad news is that it might be a few more weeks before you get to play Brawl
... or any Wii game, for that matter.
Nintendo is urging people experiencing this problem to fill in this form
and send in their Wiis for repair. They'll be footing the bill for the shipping and repair costs (as they should), so the only thing you'll be losing out on is quality time with your new copy of Brawl
Are any of you affected by this problem? If so, feel free to rant about it here. Just let it all out.
[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
