Nintendo Denies Sensor Bar Problems

Although substantiated reports have surfaced stating Wii has problems when the sensor bar is exposed to halogen light or sunlight, Nintendo claims that its testing shows "no great risk of light interference" whatsoever.

nintendo's answer to the wiimote not being affected by sunlight get's approved, while the one i posted about them being affected by sunlight did not get approved??
Kinda like answering a question that isn't being asked.

I hate it when they don't approve relative stories.

Kingboy first posted about the sunlight problem in his "Sunlight: Wii's biggest foe" post.


And then this new story is about Nintendo's response to the issue.

The sunlight that it would take to render the WiiMote useless would also be bad enough to cover the television screen in glare.

Why bother complaining about something not working if you can't see what's going on, anyways?

People will get worked up over anything...

Then there are the average people that Nintendo is trying to appeal to that don't have a theater type game room where they can control the light. For me personally this wouldn't be too much of an issue if I was getting a Wii (which I doubt I will) as I am working on finishing my basement out so I will have the theater room/game room that I've been hoping for several years. I'll have everything on dimmer switches, etc. I don't plan on getting the Wii, at least for a while until the price is worth it, as I already played this at the local Nintendo Fusion show here in Columbus, OH. Played the Wii Sports Boxing game and just wasn't that impressed. I would swing like 10 or 15 times and the guy on the screen would punch only a few times. It didn't seem able to read my actions, and I tried doing smaller motions, and bigger motions as well. By the end of the demo, I was tired and wanting to have a regular controller where it would actually do what I wanted it to. I was mad though that I didn't play Metroid Prime as I was told that there were more games upstairs but they didn't say which ones, and I assumed that none of the good ones like Red Steel or Metroid would be there.

This article is very relevant because if there are issues then it may cause problems when gamers are playing the console.

It's called shutting the blinds on your windows. Also, don't expect to be a master at the Wii on your first go. Just like with anything, it takes some time to get used to the mechanics of the thing.

So quick to be disappointed ;)

i wont have problems with it, and there is no possible way to play the games if the sunlight is directly shining on the tv screen

Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Ultimate Spider-Man use to be my favorite until Insomniac games took over.

I'd still choose Ultimate above all other games, followed by Shattered Dimensions

Abnor_Mal12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

My favorite and still champion Spiderman PS2, followed by Marvels Spiderman2, then Miles Morales, followed by Marvels Spiderman, and finally Ultimate Spiderman.

I need to drag out my PS3 and try Web of Shadows, owned the game for years and years and never played.

Shout out to cultured vultures for NOT making this 40 separate pages.

Spider-Man (2000), Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro, and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions were all so good! I have fond memories playing them.


Super Mario RPG review (Nintendo Switch): Colorful, charming and chock-full of humor - Beyond Pixels

The 1996 SNES classic returns on Nintendo Switch. There's lots of new aesthetics and features, but still lots of nostalgia as well. Is the weirdly funny and seemingly off-brand game worth its money in 2023?
