Tragedy struck the gaming community this week- after two-years of anticipation for "Smash Bros. Brawl" Joystiq.com is reporitng that some of the Wii's won't play this information-packed disk because- the lens isn't clean enough!
The post is down, but I'll link it as soon as I can. As well-traveled as my Nintendo Wii is, I worry I'll be lumped into this category, too!
What a scandal.
Update- here's the info from Joystiq.com
Nintendo has swiftly replied with a North American repair form, explaining that the double-layer disc can only be read by a squeaky-clean disc drive lens. They implore you not to try to clean said lens on your own, and to send in your crudely adhered Gamecubes to Nintendo HQ for a thorough purging. We're sure they'll get your newly spruced console back to you in a timely manner -- which will likely offer little consolation to a Nintyfan scorned.
