Retraction: The Wii Menu

On May 18, 2011 between the hours of 4:00pm and 5:00pm Mountain Standard Time, we the members of the Kibosh Podcast posted Episode 22: Music to My Ears. In said episode, we made a claim that the channels on the Wii menu could not be rearranged.

On the evening of May 19, 2011 I, Alex Brown, saw this comment posted on the our Facebook page by Sir Scott Chambers of "You silly people, you can move your stuff around on Wii."

I couldn't believe such a thing. I immediately went twenty minutes later to test this out on my Wii. Sure enough, by holding down the A and B buttons at the same time and selecting a Channel, I was able to rearrange them on my Wii Home menu. 

Devastation struck my weary head like the back side of a hand. My first instinct was to create a false update for the Wii rendering this ability unusable, but I figured with the recent PSN debacle this probably wasn't the best idea. My next plan was to call up Nintendo and personally beg them to remove the feature, however, it just so happens Nintendo is not listed in the yellow pages. My path was clear: I was going to have to issue a retraction admitting to the world that information I was claiming to be correct was in fact wrong.

So here it is.

On the Kibosh Podcast Episode 22: Music to My Ears, posted on May 18, 2011 we claimed that channels on the Wii menu could not be rearranged. This is untrue. They can.

This has been a very trying time for me. Up until this point in my life, I was positive that I was always 100% right all of the time. Now my world is shaken. I'm going to need some time.

P.S. Look forward to our next retraction explaining our falsified information regarding Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

-Thanks to Scott Chambers for making this post possible.
