Whenever I play SSBB Online nowadays, the game just starts lagging out and makes a weird "BZZZZZZZZZ" noise, and then it freezes. Is it something I should worry about????? Can it screw up my game????? Can it ruin my Wii console? If so, can I get a refund for it?
This is something to worry about. At what point does the screen freeze and make the noise (the moment you try to connect, when you try to join a match, etc.)?
How old is your Wii? This is probably a problem with the system, so the game should not be harmed. If you can, try using SSBB on another system and see if it freezes. Does the noise emanate from the Wii itself or the TV's speakers?
Nintendo does not give refunds, since it is individual stores that are selling the systems and games. The Wii comes with a one year warranty (and a 90-day extension if the Wii is registered with Club Nintendo), so a repair is possible.
It makes the noise around the middle of my match. I got my Wii for my birthday in 2006. The noise definetly emanates from the TV. It also never freezes when I do any other mode. It might just be my network service. However, I can play DBZ: BT3 just fine in network matches. It might be my TV, because lately when I've watched TV the screen pixelates a lot. By the way, that really sucks that I can't get a refund for it if the game trashes my console. I don't think that my friend would let me borrow his Wii at the risk of breaking it.
This, SSBM, Star Fox Assault, and Metroid Prime 1 & 2 are the only games that do this, but all those have only done it once. I actually don't like to play online much anyway, because all the people I fight always have Mod Chips or Hacking Devices to make them invincible or something. Thanks for the feedback .
