    Wii sensor bar doesn't work when exposed to sunlight

    Source

    Whoa! First ever unbiased imperfection on the Wii! The Wii sensor bar can't work correctly under sunlight. To make it more clearly, it can't send the signal from the Wiimote to the sensor bar if there's sunlight in the way. Not a problem for me though, i'm playing it in my Basement so sunlight won't be a problem. Might cause a few problems in some households though.

    That shouldn't be a problem for me, that terms used loosely though, I'm not sure how close to the TV the sunlight gets in my room, should be safe though.

    I heard about this before, so long out-door Wii sessions.

    if they havnt fixed it, then WOO HOO. Now i have an answer for my parents as to why my room is always in darkness. (the real reason being that i can't be a***d to open the curtains)

    And besides, for those 'families playing in the lounge' type nintendo are aiming for... well, most of them will play in the evenings which, unless you're at the poles in summer should be pretty dark anway.

    That's not true. There was an article like this on IGN, and they called Nintendo of America to disprove it. I have a topic about it in the Wii Chat section.

    You won't need to worry, because it would need to be an insanse amount of light. So much light, it wouldn't even matter if the sensor bar would work, because you would be blinded by how bright the light is.
