Not sure if the wii or xbox360 have this, but I know for sure the ps3 does. For most games there's a little thing called the XMB media bar and when you highlight the game disc, it plays a 10-15 second video of the game, complete with music, so we know exactly what game it is. As an example, if I was to highlight the game disc for heavenly sword in the ps3, it would play a heavy, movie-style orchestral track as opposed to the video acompanied by applause and cheering from a crowd with the rock band and rock band 2 discs. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Steady Goh" <stea...@gmail.com>

Hi ken, I think you made it sound so much more unfriendly to start game than it really is. You don't have to be so exact to click on the top left button. Just click on any one then use the plus or minus key on the wii controller to move you there. It is a cycle, so you will eventually land on the read disk icon.

If any of you have played the Wii, you know that it's just about impossible to start, since on the startup screen there are seven buttons to push--four on top and three on the bottom, which makes for a confusing and frustrating day at the Wii console. Even though you know the one you want is in the top left corner, you just can't seem to find it and instead find yourself adjusting your daughter's mii... (which is the way she programmed her character to look in the games.) Incidentally, I gave hers quite the hairdo. With the screen in such a state, you might spend an hour starting the game you want and have time for a match of tennis before dinner time--if you're lucky. Well, fear not Wii fans, because I have found a solution. You'll need sighted assistance for this but... In addition to the page containing the start game icon, there are three or more pages with additional channels. There are two ways to get to those pages--the plus and minus keys on the Wiimote, or the arrows on the screen. What we are going to do is to drag each channel, (accept for the one we want--the start game icon,) to another page. Have your friend hold a and b together while pointing at a channel, then move to the right arro and let go--and they have successfully moved the channel. You'll know it because you'll hear a chirp from the Wii and your friend saying, "cool." Have them do this for the next five channels, and you're done. You now have a startup screen with only one button--well, plus the arrows, but they won't do anything accept change pages and you just hit the minus button to get back to the first page--no harm done. So now all you do is move the Wiimote around till it vibrates and you're there. Make sure that your assistant moves the channel you want--the start channel which, if they can't figure it out, will say "Wii sports," on it if that CD is in, to a place far away from the arrows--the upper left corner perhaps. I can now start the game almost every time I try it, although somehow another channel appeared on the first page--but that's what happens when you let your children play with adults' toys! LOL Well, if any of you have or are considering to purchase a Wii, I hope this helps.
