    I know verbatim is widely considered the "best" dvd for burning wii games, but I want to know which is better out of +/- (if there even is one).

    best media is consistently verbatim and fujifilm

    other stuff works fine on wii though, your not gonna get better loading times or something with one rather than another, if it burns and verifies, youre pretty much golden.

    +'rs supposedly work better, but as you can see, many would argue with that, if your chip/loader supports it, burn away

    I believe +R is technologically superior, but -R has better compatibility with different devices

    TDK +R, or Mitsubishi Kagaku branded Verbatim +R, on 4x. Notice your burner makes a hell of a lot difference. Lite-ON and LG are shit, use a Pioneer or a Plextor Burner for best results.
