I wish I had read Jake’s Review of Virtual Console on Nintendo Wii a bit more closely before today. I bought a slew of virtual console games that simply do not work / display on my Sony 32″ WEGA HDTV. That really really sucks. I hope Nintendo comes out with a fix for this soon or starts warning people about it and issuing refunds to people like myself. 4 games that I bought just result in a black screen when I launch them. I’m not going to waste component cables on the Wii since those cables are already being used for the true HD PS3.
More on this problem here. If you’re having this problem call Nintendo and complain: http://www.nintendo.com/contact I’m going to blog about this every day until they refund my money or fix this problem.
Also, is there some system-wide preference for playing left-handed that I haven’t found yet?
UPDATE: Looks like it’s a problem with plugging in the Wii through the cable box. If I plug directly into the TV it’s no problem. Thanks to the guy on Nintendo’s support line who helped me out with it. I need to find a good switch box for component cables now…
