Nintendo: No Reason to Make Wii HD-Compatible at This Time

500°
289w ago - Nintendo is still insisting that as far as the original Wii is concerned, there is not a significant reason to make it HD compatible.

However, a new Wii may well support HD because HD is common across the world.

To quote: Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently talked to VentureBeat about the HD upgrade of the Wii and revealed that:

"If we have an opportunity to make a new console, it will probably support HD because it is now common throughout the world. However, as far as the Wii is concerned, we have not found a significant reason to make it HD-compatible at this time."

The executive went on to say that: "What is the significant meaning to the users? I don't think we should do it unless we find that reason. If we decide for other reasons to make new hardware, then HD is one of the things we would naturally add. As for timing, it may be three years from now, five years from now or eight years from now."
 

Sony Refuses to Replace Backwards-Compatible PS3 Consoles

750°
297w ago - A TAWKN (linked above) user who goes by dn2500f has had his 80GB PS3 with backwards-compatibility at Sony's repair center in Ontario, Canada for three weeks now.

Sony apparently only offered to give him a new model 80GB PS3, which does not include PS2 support (over 1,900 PS2 games that he can no longer play).

To quote: Today he called in to get a status update and was told that it was beyond repair, and because Sony doesn't make that model anymore they can't replace it... despite the fact that he bought four years' worth of Sony Care extended warranty for it, for a total of five years.

They offered to give him a new model 80GB PS3.

He argued with them that he is not just losing a PS3, but PS2 support (that's over 1900 PS2 games that he can no longer play), extra USB ports, plus the built-in card readers. Sony's reply? Too freaking bad. (Not a direct quote, obviously).

This guy is very angry at Sony, and rightfully so. They didn't offer him anything but a far inferior model than what he bought about 12 months ago, which he says is unacceptable - and I agree.

At the VERY least, they should be trying to make up for this to him and other users who paid $100 extra for a console that has only one life left to live.

If I were in his situation,...
 

Twilight Hack v0.1 BETA 2 out, Compatible with 3.4 Wii Firmware!

50°
318w ago - So I said that the Twilight Hack was gone and probably wouldn't be coming back. Good thing I left that probably in there.

Yes, they screwed up the anti-Twilight Hack check. Again.

There's not much point in us publishing a detailed explanation on where the problems are this time around. It comes down to nothing remarkable anyway - just more stupid, silly bugs. They fixed some and added more. We didn't look much this time because we thought that, well, they really couldn't have screwed it up this time, could they?

Download: Twilight Hack v0.1-beta2 (Special 3.4 Edition)

As it turns out, you didn't even have to look at the code to figure out that something was wrong. Someone tried to copy the Twilight Hack out of a 3.3 Wii and into a 3.4 Wii. Go ahead, try it. It doesn't quite work (it crashes the game when used), but the save copies. Oops. Props to Krusty for pointing this out.

Will this finally be the last release of the Twilight Hack? Will Nintendo finally manage to beat it into the ground? Third time's the charm, maybe? We don't know.

Notes: This is for 3.4 ONLY. 3.3 and earlier users should continue with the v0.1-beta1 Twilight Hack. The hacked savefile will be deleted...
