    Nobody needs proof, we all know and believe it is only Mono.

    The issue is that Customer Support is telling people to set their Wiis to stereo, basically trying to fool people into thinking it's not that the game is in mono but that PLII just doesn't work. I'd still only be 25% satisfied with true stereo in GHIII, but they're trying to make it seem like stereo works, when in fact it's true mono only.

    Total sham. I wish this issue was getting more attention by the major game review sites. This is actually grounds for a class action suit because they advertise PLII on the box, and it's not there. False product description/advertising.

    I posted a review and comments at IGN about this. Let's see if my reviews actually stay around:

    what about the setting inside the game is broken meaning:
    IF your Wii is set to PLII the game plays in Mono!
    If your Wii is set to stereo, the game plays in Stereo.
    Well since I am hoping at least for some stereo, I am not going to switch my Wii Sound setup everytime I play a full payed game.
    I am going to ask the shop to let me return the game if the PLII Mode is not properly working! (haven't bought this game yet)

    That really sucks [​IMG] how ridiculous


    MANY people were saying in the GH3 release thread that only PLII was in mono and that normal stereo was fine..this test had to be done. Good work WWS

    PL2 is an abbreviation for "Pro Logic 2"
    A way to encode kinda surround sound in stereo signals.
