    No, I've never seen that. In fact, it doesn't even look real. It almost looks photoshopped...

    It's either a strange glitch or a poorly edited fake.

    Either way it won't affect your Wii

    I would guess that's not debug info, but just some corruption of the video buffer.

    It's not the debug info, but it's probably not the video buffer either.

    I think (if it's real) it's probably due to some kind of manufacturer's error in the actual disc, causing the Wii to display this "garbage"

    well, its absolutely not a fake. I just took those pictures this evening.

    I saved my game and went back to the Wii menu and that weird text was still scrambling across the screen. I've had my Wii since launch day and haven't ever seen it before.

    It might have just been a bad print of that part of the disc. I wouldnt worry about it unless it starts doing it all the time and on multiple games.

    If that text is appearing on your regular Wii menu and not just in Galaxy, then something is wrong with your Wii and has nothing to do with Galaxy. You should call Nintendo.


    Wait, another thought occurred (although it's a longshot). Do you have the Closed Captioning turned on on your TV? If so, perhaps it's sensing something in the video signal that it thinks is supposed to be onscreen text but is actually just garbage.

    Good point. It may be his TV misinterpreting something.

    Although the font does look very Nintendo-ee.

    That looks like it's been poorly photoshopped. If it's real it's a disc error.

    you are a freaking moron. I took it with a digital camera and cropped out the tv. that's it.

    I updated my Wii to the latest frimware and i havent seen the strange text again.

    Is your Wii chipped/modded?
