Nintendo to Clean Japanese Wiis Over Smash Bros. Errors

According to the statement, Nintendo has received complaints from Smash Bros. Brawl buyers of the Wii being unable to read their newly bought disc, or of videos chopping up during playback. These users claim to have had no such problems with past games.

Nintendo has come to the conclusion that the problem has to do with dust and tobacco building up on Wii laser units. This effects Smash Bros. Brawl while leaving other titles unaffected because the new fighter uses a dual layer DVD, which is apparently more sensitive to a dirty lens.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nintendos' CS has always been top notch. To bad this hiccup happened but they are nice enough to make things right

Good thing it is noticed now and will end up fixed for the other regions.

Mine prolly has some dust on it too so that would be in order. I would love for Nintendo to simply put a product out on the market that would clean the lens. i mean i would buy it and i don't trust the dvd drive cleaners out there now.. they are a bit fishy to me.

Man, I've got to stop cramming tobacco into my Wii's drive bay.

That's what I was thinking. What a random culprit to list as a reason for the error.

In other news, millions of Japanese Wii-owning smokers have switched to chewing tobacco.

compared to my experience with MS customer service this sounds like a god send.
