Alright, here I am with another problem post. Hopefully, this isn't part of the game I'm playing, because if it was then I'd just quit posting altogether.

So, I'm playing No More Heroes again, and I'm in the part of town near the Job Center. This part of the in-game world has bright sunlight and sharp cel-shading, so there's white all around. It's then that I notice that the graphics start getting all fuzzy. No, I don't have the dreaded black pixels or lines, just that the visuals start to look like it's from those old TVs where the signal starts to get weird. This happens on and off - one second the edges do the fuzzy thing, then next second it's all sharp. I've only noticed it until now, and I've had the Wii for quite some time.

This also seems to happen in the menu screen of NiGHTS, where the buttons have these bright golden borders and golden font and AGGGGH BRIGHTNESS. It doesn't happen in-game, though.

The question I want to ask is, is it time for me to send the Wii over for repairs, or do I just need to replace the composite cables? As for the TV I'm using, it's a first-generation Sony WEGA flatscreen.

I'd first try different cables and a different TV. You might as well go for component cables, especially with your TV. Composite is almost the worst quality possible.

RGB SCART is fine too if you're in Europe, but component is better still.

    That's some 5D math that only makes sense in America.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its different prices per state because state taxes are different, Cali taxes are higher than most, its has nothing to do w min wage.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It does at the end of the day because they'd demand more and go on strike
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You admit the corporations charge more because people can afford it, not because it really costs more, right?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Yes companies look at average costs of what people can afford to sale products
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And there's no competition?
  • HUNTERFOX @ HUNTERFOX:
    Competition in companies here are like crazy
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Sure but competition does the same if anything at lower rates because they don't have the same resources
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Usually like a 10-20% difference
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I was told the market would "self regulate".
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I still feel as if prices would've gone up in America regardless of whose in office
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Of course they would, both your parties are spineless corporate stooges.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What about companies that are nationwide. Do you think they charge in that states stores based on state economic situation. No they charge the same, but taxes per state make the price difference. (Exception maybe Alaska, Hawaii)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Once you minimize cost of living a $500 gaming console could feel like a $1,000 console to a average home
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    But even they look at data charts and mostly have contacts in other country wide offices that talk to each other to make a fair msrp
  • Veho @ Veho:
    BigOnYa, taxes are calculated at checkout in Murrika so it's easy to compare.

    I have a family member that lives near the Ohio/Kentucky border in Cincinnati, Ohio, he goes across the border to Kentucky to buy most things because they're sales tax is lower in Kentucky.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I went down there last summer and helped him run electric in a pole barn he built, and he saved over $300 buying electrical supplies at HomeDepot in Kentucky instead of in Ohio. Weird but true.
