Wii 4.1 Update News

Our good friends over at PureNintendo had the following to say about the new update for Wii.

I just received a Wii email from Nintendo announcing a new update for the Wii console, Wii update 4.1. According to the message Nintendo is being proactive in fixing the problems that Wii Sports Resort caused to Japanese Wii consoles. It just seems like it fixes some save issues that Wii Sports Resort caused. I been looking around and it seems like this update is just for that. Japan received this same update last week, and I am sure that you in Europe will be getting it soon if you have not already.
