A new Government rule may destroy the availability of WiiConnect 24, one of the Nintendo Wii’s new features, in the UK.
The British Government is enforcing a new law which requires standby features of appliances to be slashed from product designs.
Some mentioned products by the Government include set-top boxes, chargers, televisions, lighting, freezers, fridges, washing machines, and computers.
These must be created in a more energy-efficent manner, and standby features will no longer be tolerated.
According to the Government, standby features consume at least 8% of the UK’s energy each year.
Speaking to Eurogamer during EA’s summer showcase, Jeff Brown, who is EA’s corporate communications VP, noted:
“Everybody’s saying that the Nintendo Wii is so unique that it’s going to be the second system people buy, meaning if you own a 360 or a PS3, you’ll probably also buy a Nintendo Wii.”
“The funny thing is, some people say that discursively, like it’s some sort of dig at Nintendo – and what they don’t get is that if you’re second on everybody’s system, you’re first overall.”
