Wii U’s Firmware Update Hitting Right Now

A firmware update appears to have finally become available for the Wii U, a little later than Nintendo personnel had predicted. Pre-release Wii U systems are now able to at least begin downloading the update.

The story is too old to be commented.

I hope Nintendo many success on the Wii U, same goes to Sony and Microsoft on there next gen systems.

chadboban1348d ago

Wish all gamers could see things this way. That's, unfortunately, just a pipe dream.

Plagasx1348d ago

I'm mostly a PC gamer myself, but I'm glad someone finally took the plunge and replaced our ancient game consoles.

Some of the Wii-U games look interesting, I'm prolly gonna pick one up.

donman11348d ago

Not really a good job till they fix the following:

Nintendo needs to seriously work on fixing the load times between menu options. In some cases its up to a 11 sec wait when going from the game back to the main menu. That is definitely not acceptable given the fact the OS is using 1GB of memory. GET THIS CORRECT NINTENDO WITH ANOTHER SYSTEM UPDATE.

vallencer1348d ago

There's times where I have to wait upwards of 30 seconds to go from my game to main menu on my 360. I think 11 seconds of your life is ok.

donman11347d ago (Edited 1347d ago )

@ Vallencer..

The Wii U is a newer hardware with 1GB dedicated to the OS. 11 seconds to move from menu options is piss poor (11 seconds from game back to main menu is terrible). Lets not compare it to anything else and let the console stand on its own. Nintendo needs to fix that problem.

Godmars2901348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

The Wii U is out in Japan already right?

I mean it would be beyond lame for there to be a system patch out *BEFORE* the actual system it was for. I'm talking brain hurtin' stupid.

Nevermind what it says that they put out a patch for something so soon released.

lashes2ashes1348d ago

Wii u is not out in Japan until December.

Moonman1348d ago

Excuse me, Nintendo has told everyone in the press of a Day 1 update. Everyone is expecting it to hit the first day, not the second...not the third. This isn't a patch, it's a system update.

My 360 needed an update when I got it.
My PS3 needed an update when I got it.
My phone needed an update when I got it.
My PC needed LOTS of updates when I built it.
My iPad needed an update when I got it.

Need I go on?

MegaLagann1348d ago

Does Mika's arms get tired grasping at straws. Did he/she forget 360/PS3 had day one updates?

Moonman1348d ago

How am I missing the point? That is exactly what is going on you troll fanboy/woman. Update your brain. :)

You ever wonder why you have one bubble?

cpayne931348d ago

Mika the way you jump at anything to attack Nintendo is really pathetic. It's also just wierd, a strange obsession.

animegamingnerd1348d ago

@-Mika- You sir or madam are a true expert in ignorant commenting.

Godmars2901348d ago

Some of us haven't been closely following the WiiU, like I don't plan on closely following the PS4 and Next Box, read the title, read the article for once, and thought; God our culture has become @$$-backward stupid and near-fatalistically centric. Overly accepting of being bent over for something shiny.

Romney should have won. Sped up the process.

rainslacker1348d ago

@Mika

The systems going on sale today were probably boxed up 1-2 months ago. I would hope and expect any console manufacturer these days to keep working on their software to improve performance, reliability and security.

It releases in the United States first, Europe and Australia on the 30th and in Japan on December 8th.

KwietStorm1348d ago

Finally? Lol are they serious?

Griffin48711348d ago

Lmao ikr? Especially with the street date being tomorrow. The impatience.

guitarded771348d ago

I understand the silliness in the "finally" statement, but reviewers have had the console for awhile now, and have had their hands tied from fully experiencing and reviewing the games and features of the Wii U itself because they have been waiting for the system update and online capability to go live. It's just the way it feels from their perspective. If we got out Wii U's 2 weeks ago and had been waiting for the system update, we'd probably be saying "finally" too. Anyway, can't wait to pick mine up when GameStop opens tomorrow... stupid no midnight launch :/ I'll be saying "finally" tomorrow when I get home with my console :D

DevilRebellion1348d ago

Oh man, it's finally coming! It's finally here! I can barely contain myself! :D

YoungPlex1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

The update was well worth it, just got done updating the first Wii U on to the second! This thing is as smooth as butter, I'm quite pleased with the UI and OS. Other than the HEFTY firmware update, the Wii U has been the fastest and friendliest of all my consoles however, my 360-Slim remains the fastest when updating the firmware. All in all I'm more than satisfied with my purchases. Bout to play some AC:III and NSMB U, enjoy everyone!
