Nintendo Wii Sun Driver SATA Version Review

400°
224w ago - Sun Driver (SATA version) arrives with very nice and simple retail packaging and a couple hdd's ready to be tested!

Installation is very simple (no harder than replacing the drive)

The fit for power, flat cable and sata data/power are all very solid (sata connections are especially tight which is nice because I've some cheap sata connectors on other devices where the cable can fall out if bumped)

2.5in hdd fit's nicely as expected. The tight power/data connection and 2 mounting screws are more than enough to keep the hdd in place and secure.

A good look over Sun Drivers PCB shows of the quality from manufacturing.. all connections, components, etc are clean and there is no slop left over or bad solder here!

NOTE: (Sun Driver may come shipped to you with switches all set to "ON" please REMEMBER switch them all away from led -> to take advantage of the GC SunDiskMenu01.ISO to switch games)

Some sexy photo's of Sun Driver's led showing status. Old face plate mod for SunDisk .. will probably do some nice mod for Sun Driver soon also

Installing games and configuring Sun Driver is easy and fast.

Power on Wii with "Eject" button and 4 switches to the right and...

Nintendo: Twilight Princess is 'Starting Point' for New Zelda on Wii

200°
227w ago - Today, following an interview with director Eiji Aonuma, IGN (linked above) is reporting some new details on the next Zelda game for the Nintendo Wii.

To quote: "Since then, the publisher has dropped a few more details, first confirming that Link's swordplay would be enhanced by Wii MotionPlus and also revealing that it plans to alter the traditional "flow" of the series.

Dev: With Twilight Princess, we challenged ourself to create the most vast and realistic world the series had ever seen, but we don't feel that we were able to fully complete this objective. With that as a starting point for our improvements to the series in the future, we are of course working on a new game for Wii.

Might the forthcoming Zelda title, which is purportedly set to be unveiled at next year's E3, be the Wii equivalent of Majora's Mask?

Dev: For any game to be remembered for a long time, just like Ocarina of Time was, the game must give the strong impression that it has set a new starting point for future sequels to build upon. We are working to further improve upon the experiences found in Twilight Princess so that our future games can realize these innovations."
