The release of Super Smash Bros for Wii U has led to a number of owners claiming that a system error has caused some people to accidentally brick their consoles.
A small minority of Wii U owners have said their system is refusing to play Super Smash Bros, with the console giving the error code 160-0103, along with the message: “There is a problem with the system memory. For help, make a note of the error code and visit support.nintendo.com.”
The damage caused by this appears to vary. Some users claim they are no longer able to play Smash Bros, while others say their system is now inoperable. However, it appears that the error, which is associated with corrupted data, only leads to bricked systems if people format their console after the problem occurs.
Users are strongly advised to not format their off their Wii U if they experience the same problem.
In a statement sent to GameSpot, Nintendo wrote: "A small percentage of consumers playing Wii U may experience error codes (160-0103 and 60-1710) that could affect the ability of the system to function properly. We are investigating this issue now. Until the solution is available, anyone that experiences these error codes can call the Nintendo contact centre at +44 (0) 345 60 50 247 for help and repair."
One user, posting on Miiverse, has explained that this error code is not directly associated with Smash Bros, but rather one that has flared up because more people are playing on their Wii U due to Nintendo's new fighting game.
As pointed out by one Reddit user, the error code 160-0103 has been known to occur on numerous Wii U games, such as:
