pretty decent.. Sux u cant save images or videos but not a big deal

It would've been cool if you could save gameplay videos and walkthroughs and upload them directly off of the Wii U.

maybe one day with an update :) you never know..

How can it suck if it`s not a big deal?

Samus HD1908d ago

why don't you use your laptop, PC, or smartphone o_O

TheUndertaker851907d ago

Because being able to use one device is much easier than having to use two?

Samus HD1907d ago

naahh.. you are over-thinking it

Drainage1908d ago

letdown after letdown. So I cant save or upload unlike the PS3 browser which is a 2006 console. whatever, I use my computer for that stuff anyways

Sh you will piss off Nintendo fanboys with that comment

I like how you mix " console hardware" with " software".

If the PS3 has 256MB RAM and can use those features plus Vita has 512MB RAM and can use those features... If both of those can use those features and the WiiU which has 1GB RAM(1GB is open to the system, 2 is not)can't/isn't, it's kind of easy to see why that comparison was brought up.

Not to mention the device can store pictures can't it? A lot of people store their pictures online now. Being able to use the browser to save the pics you have online would make things easier.

The amount of RAM got nothing to do with an upload feature( not in this day in age, not back in 2000). It's such a trivial piece of subroutine to CPU consumption and RAM.

There is probably a different reason for why they haven't implemented it yet ( perhaps exploits to the system)

The comparison is complete nonsense and not justified. Obviously a PS3 does all sorts of game logic. So why wouldn't it be able to handle such a small feature?

It's simply technical impaired ducks here giving their shi**y 2 cents.

That image upload is something a firmware update can chage just like that and th ps3 browser gets a lower benchmark than 3ds the wiiu browser is faster than anything out there did you know that.

WiiUalpha1907d ago

Whats the point in being faster when u r cut off from80 percent of the internet? Its like bragging about owning the fastest car in the world but u cant drive it on any road. No flash no java no support for what most of the internet is made up of. its almost like the old Apple vs pc debate. Sure apples pc were better but they had such limited support it was pointless to own one...

Qrphe1907d ago

WiiuAlpha is right. If it was all about speed, I'd be using Chrome all day every day.

Wolfbiker1908d ago

I honestly don't see the use of uploading pictures and videos?

I'm sure the social apps like Facebook will allow it and I don't upload pictures anywhere else.

WiiUalpha1907d ago

I actually wrote Nintendo on this one. I can watch pirated movies on this but not legit ones. They brag about social interaction then hinder it by not allowing YouTube. Sure it'll play it now but with no add on support it will b as useless as the Wii andps3 ones are with the next YouTube update. Why brag about a feature then limit it in every way?

Qrphe1907d ago

When companies talk about "social interaction" they usually refer to Facebook and Twitter which is by far not even remotely close to what the t social interaction was, had been and has been before those sites even came into existance.
