Some of you who leave your Wii connected via connect24 should find that your Wii is glowing blue this morning. An update was deployed last night, with fixes to the shop, browser and parental controls.
Yeah, my wife grabbed me and showed me the glowing blue Wii and said, "I think the cats turned it on," then her eyes got wide, "is it broken?". I told her it probably downloaded an update or something, or we got a message.
your wife rocks. ill do this update when i get home
Ya the browser's pretty nice. Now I can waste some time on wiicade.com =)
I like how Nintendo manages to keep release dates for things like this a secret. I knew the update was coming in April but didn't hear an exact date. It's nice to be pleasantly surprised every once in a while.
I woke up for work this morning and my Wii was sure enough glowing! Now I kno why!
I downloaded this last night... But i didn't see the internet channel...
Super Paper Mario is a funny game BTW
Does the Wii only glow if it gets an update?
It glows when you get email from either other people on your list or in the case of last night an email from nintendo. In the email you can click the update button. You still need to go into the shop channel and get the interner browser.
Send a message to your wii from your computer via email and never open it. Take care though, the longer that light is on, the quicker the bulb will wear out.
It's an LED. It's not going to burn out before any other part of the Wii does, even if it's on constantly.
Sys update dropped last night at 9:50pm CST.
Sys update is now 2.2u
Anyone notice it gets into all channels abit quicker now and loads content faster? Still takes about 12 sec to come back to the main menu though.
I currently have my browser on auto-hide tool bar and auto zoom, both work great.
Now I'm waiting on the DS opera browser.
