If you have an older Wii, don’t buy Xenoblade Chronicles right away

0

Last week, for those of you who don’t know, the long-awaited Xenoblade Chronicles was finally released in North America. I picked up my copy on Easter (because it was pretty hard to find a copy with the shrink-wrap still on at launch, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay full price for an opened game), and I finally got around to dusting off my Wii and putting in the disc today. With my Classic Controller at my side, I was all ready to experience the Wii’s highly celebrated swan song.

Except that didn’t happen. See, my Wii is old and the Xenoblade disc is dual-layered. Older Wiis have a problem reading dual layered discs. I’d recommend either sending your Wii in to Nintendo (don’t worry if your warranty has expired, they’ll take care of it), waiting for the Wii U if you want to play Xenoblade, or cleaning the disk drive yourself. Either way, take heed before you spend that $50.
