I was playing Super Mario World on the virtual console this weekend with a buddy of mine and we both were doing absolutely horrendous. We both realised that there seemed to be a very slight delay in the time it took to press a button and for the game to react. In a game like Super Mario World, where so much depends on your reaction time, any delay is an extreme disadvantage. I pulled out my SNES and plugged in the original SMW cart and sure enough, we both did just as good (or at least almost as good) as we did when we played it as kids.
Is this delay just a problem inherent to the Wii?
Is it possible the placement of the Wii is causing the delay and I need to move it into plain sight?
-I keep it on the bottom shelf of my TV stand, almost at floor level.
Does anyone else have this problem?
