Haha, wouldnt that be funny if one of the unlockables was for you to be able to fight in the pink sweatsuit?

ChickeyCantor3104d ago

Would be cool if they let you unlock the Super Punchout version =o...

Product3104d ago

super punchout is coming out on vc this monday in NA so i doubt that would happen.

sticky doja3104d ago

It would be the best if you could unlock Mike Tyson!

Product3104d ago

oh my if Mike Tyson or Mr Dream is an unlockable that would be harcore fan service right there.

SinnedNogara3104d ago

Sounds very cool. I just wish it had ONLINE MULTIPLAYER.

ChickeyCantor3104d ago

But product, that isnt making sense, Punch out for the nes was already released for VC so why not super punchout in this game?

Product3104d ago

@ sidar
just from a business stand point i would not think they would make a virtual console game an unlockable item. Before this Super Punchout was an unlockable in the boxing game Fight Night(i think thats the name of the game) so who knows.

360 games use 9gb and developers have issues sometimes with it.
If they are using the single layer disc than expand to 9gb? ( dual layer)
...but still pretty awesome.

I think the 360 dvd is limited to 7.2 GB with security, the Wii can probably have more on the disk than a 360 can.

Remember when smash bros came out and a lot of Wiis wouldn't play the game? Apparently that's because it was the first Wii game to use a DL DVD. Apparently a few months later, Nintendo told developers that DL disks would no longer be allowed, because the Wii's DVD drive wasn't very good with them.

I've got no proof of this, it was one of my old work colleagues (Who does Wii development) that told me this.

I dont see that. I think Nintendo just shipped some bad units. Not everyone had the problem. I sent mine off and noticed on the inventory log online that there was a 75.00 charge for parts. According to them though, my lens just needed to be cleaned. If it was really just a dusty lens I see no reason for the 75.00 charge(which they waived of course.), I think they just gave me a new laser diode.

“We packed the disc to the brim and there were a few things we had to leave out because there wasn’t any space left. We are the first internal Nintendo dev team to come across this problem with the Wii’s dvd, so you are def. getting a lot.”

Uhh... what about Brawl?

If only he could of used blueray technology

Gam713104d ago (Edited 3104d ago )

I haven't heard of that.

If only they could've used Blu-ray?

Gam713104d ago

Just getting in there before the SDF.

"If only he could of used blueray technology "

Then it would have been more expensive (the wii)

TruthbeTold3104d ago

How is it that the 360 runs HD games on a DVD, but a non-RPG Wii game gave the developers space problems? No joke. The game must be PACKED with extras.
