Gaming Today Comment Of The Week


We’ve had some great comments this week, but the winning comment for me came in at the last minute from Norbit. Reports have been coming in concerning some gamers having trouble loading Super Smash Brothers Brawl due to dust issues which Nintendo has quickly responded by offering to professionally clean your system.

Norbit raised the point that this could actually be an issue beyond simple dust. I have to agree with Norbit. I am highly suspicious that there could be a hardware problem involved, but I have reserved judgement until I find out a little more about what’s really going on.

Who’s kidding who? You have got to be the biggest suckups in the world to reprint a press release from some PR hack at Ninetendo. This is not a dust problem this is a software problem. All the other games work…. DUH!!!!!!! If the auto industry made you send your car back to detroit every time they screwed up the factory would stay in business for about eight seconds. Have some guts and call Ninetendo on their error and maybe they would admit they have problem…who pays for my replacement wii while mine is in the shop.

I still think dust is an EU problem.

Damn you Norbit, I thought mine would win for sure.

@Gino: I wasn’t sucking up to anyone posting what Nintendo had to say about the subject. I didn’t say I agreed or disagreed with what they said. It’s just simply their side of the story. Right or wrong, people should have access to what the companies are saying.

If I knew of a specific error, I would certainly call them out.. but right now all I have is my suions. Of course, if we come up with any credible evidence that there’s something more to this, we will certainly have it posted in a story.

Personally, I believe there is more to this than the silly dust story.. but I really have no evidence to support my belief, so that would be reckless for me to print a story on it saying anything other than what is actually known.
