Wii Shuts Off In Sunlight?

In what could be some very, very bad news for Nintendo and millions of hopefully Wii buyers, a report has surfaced that the Wii's sensors are so sensitive that they will cause the console to shut down completely in the presence of sunlight. sensor bar to stop functioning correctly in the presence of sunlight. While it's unlikely that anyone is going to be crazy enough to keep their Wii in direct sunlight, the fact that a simple shift of the sunlight in a room could cause your Wii to stop working as intended might lead to a bunch of very angry Wii owners jumping ship elsewhere. Let's hope Nintendo gets back to us on this issue ASAP, so that we'll know if the new consoles require a dark, secluded room.
