^^ It's more interactive, putting the player more into the game than just merely showing us better resolution and sounds.

Weilding a sword, clutching a bat, gripping a club, cooking with a pan, pulling the fishing reel, etc. etc. etc.

It's WAY AWESOME! ;D

I'm not sure if this is the right thread to ask this re Wii.  Has anyone experienced na nag-loloko yung Wii ninyo? Yung lumalabas yung black screen saying na i-off muna yung Wii then Try Again?  Orig naman lahat ng bala namin.  I'm thinking of having it modified na lang.  Safe ba magpa-modify? ???

^mapa-modify na nga rin yung sa min.  thanks, sis.

By the way, yung Wii nyo ba naka-higa o naka-tayo?  Yung sa min kasi nakahiga.  Iniisip namin tuloy baka may effect yun dun sa unit.

Haven't gotten that issue yet, glam-o-momma. So far, my original, un-modded Wii has been giving me nothing but smiles. ;D <- see?

Though, your desired position for your Wii shouldn't be a factor in the kind of problem you're experiencing. If it's under warranty, I suggest getting it checked OR replace it before modding to avoid voiding the warranty.

Anyone hear about the news that Mario Paper and Mario Galaxy can "break" your Wii?  Am not sure if it's for modified or original Wii though..

Nintendo, Sony face new patent suit
Wii and PS3 manufacturers taken to court by Pennsylvania man over wireless controller technology.

Ever since Immersion Corporation won its lawsuit against Sony over the rumble technology in PlayStation and PlayStation 2 DualShock controllers (and eventually forced nearly $100 million in damages and interest from the electronics giant), patent litigation has been a subject of keen interest in the gaming industry.

One of numerous figures from the patent.The latest dispute comes from the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, where Copper Innovations Group late last month filed suit against Nintendo and Sony for a patent it holds on a "Hand Held Computer Input Apparatus and Method."

The patent--which was filed in January of 1996--covers a method for connecting devices to a system and sorting their inputs by means of hardware identification numbers tied to each transmission. According to the suit, Nintendo and Sony are violating the Copper Innovations Group's patent by making and selling their systems and controllers. The Wii Remote, Wii Nunchuk, Sixaxis controller, and Blu-ray Remote Control are all named in the suit as infringing products.

Copper Innovations Group is seeking damages plus interest, legal fees, and an injunction permanently prohibiting Sony, Nintendo, or their agents from infringing upon the patent. An attorney for Copper declined to comment on the case (or the omission of Microsoft as a defendant) for GameSpot, while Sony and Nintendo representatives did not return requests for comment.
