    • IKR? this thing sounds like it could bump the wiiu up to near perfection! Fuck trophy’s and system wide voice chat. SOny and Microsoft can keep them. Miiverse is more than a soloution…

      If this update can stop the crashed which I have only experienced once, then the wiiu will earn legendary status…

        • It just froze up during some menu.Think it was a miiverse menu. And I had to unplug it. Never had any major problem other than that. Apart from the odd glitch.

          Hopefully this new update fixes everything ^_^

  1. How long Nintendo says it may take to download is irrelevant. It all depends on your internet connection. My update has been downloading for about 20 minutes now, and the timer is at 2 hours and 18 minutes. For those wondering, I’ve read that the update is 593 megs.

  2. There was also a update for the 3DS and if you go it to new super mario bros 2 and go in coin rush shop, there’s a new pack set. Pack #7 and #8 to release tomorrow.

    • It is just so Nintendo will not be responsible for morons action. If there’s not a warning messenge about this kind of stuff they are forced to replace eventually bricked systems.

  3. I’m downloading it right now while watching TV. I got the GamePad next to me to check on the update progress. This second screen really adds a lot to the console gaming experience, this is why I love Nintendo.

    • Yep ! well suck on these watermellons. My Bug ass power consuming TV is switched off cus it’s late. But I can put the gamepad on it’s stand or charging cradle and use the pro controller to play cod on the gamepad! The gamepad is effectively a mini television for certain games. And I love the way games look on it! I still can’t believe this TV is 480p lol.
      It is 16:9 progressive with a high refresh rate and small pixels and powerfull console graphics all add up to a nice looking gamepad screen.

      What’s your NNID mike S ? Mine is xNintedwardx

      I love when you leave the wiiu it goes dark to save power and when you pick it up it lights up ^_^ !

  4. Fix the downloading servers i have a 20MB internet connection service and it usually takes me about 15 min to download a game of 2GB on my ps3. Come on Nintendo! Also stop with the little kids games we need more multiplat games like bf3,far cry3, etc. I know its the first couple of weeks but US hardcore gamers need to know what your plans are for upcoming games. Im in the verge of returning the wii u because you guys are lacking in giving us info on hardcore games.

    • If you think only little kids games are out so far your not a hardcore gamer.. There not lacking anything.. it’s early in the life cycle. You need to understand the system isnt even out in japan yet and your complaining. Monster hunter, pikmin, mario bros., zombie u, trine 2. Multiple e-shops games. And what over 20 games at launch. Thats more then the ps3 and the xbox 360 had at launch. Calm down…… You must be trollin’

      • yea… just that monsterhunter, pikmon and many other interesting games are not out yet. they are classified by nintendo as launch titles because they are to be released within 3 month of the launch, but thats only nintendo-pr-talk. real launch games launch at launch. thats why they are called launch-games. so no, the Wii U doesn’t have that many good launch titles.

    • uhhhh….really? i hate it when people say nintendo games are for little kids, esspecially when my 7 year old brother can play cod no problem but sucks ass at ANY mario game. just because a game is cartoony, doesn’t mean it’s a kids game.

  5. It seems as the EU version of Wii U is much more stable than the US one. I have never experienced any problems with my Wii U and the Wii U doesn’t brick itself when an update is interrupted here in Sweden. Also the update took 15 min to finish. Am I also correct saying that you don’t have the Wii U TV Remote button yet or did you get it now? We had it working on launch. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    • Incorrect, my TV functionality worked day 1 out of the box in the US. I have never experienced any freeze problems at all, very much doubt there’s a difference in the system stability of EU versus US Wii U’s.

  6. Uhoh, does the update start automatically when the console is powered up? I switched my WiiU on before going to work this morning to charge my Wii remotes, forgetting the console powers off after 1 hr of inactivity…

  7. Ok so as far as speed goes loading times were only addressed for mii verse, it’s lightning fast now. Everything else is still slow haven’t played anything yet to see if freeze was addressed
