Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime has announced that the lengthy day-one update for Wii U should be pre-installed on new systems starting from the Spring. Fils-Aime went on to reiterate that the patch was necessary to make sure that the very best product is available to consumers.
“Nintendo developers want to make sure that the very best product is available to consumers.”
“That creates a dynamic where our developers are working on elements until the very last point possible. That’s why the system update was required on Day One – and this is quite similar to what’s happened with other consumer electronic products.”
