Satoru Iwata Feels ‘Very Sorry’ For Wii U Owners Who Have To Experience A Network Update

Nintendo global president Satoru Iwata says he feels ‘very sorry’ for consumers who experience a lengthy network update right after setting up their Wii U consoles. Some Wii U users claim to have waited for five hours to complete the new console’s necessary day one update.

“Personally I think that users should be able to use all the functions of a console video game machine as soon as they open the box. So I feel very sorry for the fact that purchasers of Wii U have to experience a network update which takes such a long time, and that there are the services which were not available at the hardware’s launch.”
