Please take a moment to sign our petition to Nintendo to release Wii U Virtual Console titles in 60Hz for PAL regions.
Within the aftermath of the news that Nintendo have started to release Wii U Virtual Console games in the older and slower 50hz format in PAL regions, we would like Nintendo Europe to make a change for the better.
Nintendo are aware of the situation given the masses of posts in the Balloon Fight Miiverse community about the 50hz vs 60hz situation, but to raise awareness and to try and perusade Nintendo to consider 60hz releases in Europe and Australia for PAL gamers, we have created a petition.
The original Nintendo Wii Virtual Console was heavily criticised for classic games outputting in 50Hz as opposed to the 60hz. Nintendo has addressed this on the 3DS, but the Wii U has taken a step back for the worse.
50Hz titles are generally 17% slower, have potential image and sound issues, letterbox bordering when compared to the same games in NTSC regions.
We would like Nintendo to change the way Virtual Console titles are handled in Europe and Australia and allow us to download the 60Hz games as the developers had originally intended, or at least have the option to if we wish.
The Wii U Virtual Console is launching this Spring - there is still time for Nintendo do make a difference for PAL gamers.
Please sign this petition so we can clearly highlight to Nintendo that this is an issue.
Please take a moment to sign our Wii U Virtual Console PAL Games in 60hz petition today and we shall forward the response to our contacts in Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo UK once reaching a solid figure.
