Really?? Oh well its day one

MurDocINC1349d ago

Mine was played all day yesterday without one issue.

The only problem I'm having with mine is that external hard drive keeps disconnecting, it even happens to 65gb ubs drive. I did format them twice and noting, I havent played the wiiu much because of that.

If your hdd haves a sleeper mode than that could be the problem!Some HDD disconnect when they are not reading or writting on them.Im almost pretty sure that not all hdd will end up been totaly compatible with the Wii U.

Nothing surprising since it's launch. Atleast it's nothing compared to the WORST defects ever...being the RROD. Thanks Microsoft!

The RROD didn't happen day 1....

Well, he's comparing WiiU day 1 to Xbox day 1...RROD doesn't kick in within a day, it takes a little while for it to affect it. WiiU could have something horrible like YLoD or even RROD. But we have to wait and see first don't we? Xbox didn't have any problems on Day 1.

?
I'm quite certain it was. Even if users weren't effected right away, the rrod didn't magically appear out of thin air. It was the result of day 0 manufacturing/design mistakes.

RFornillos41349d ago

fortunately for us, the system itself is efficient in terms of heat dissipation. which is one of the main cause of RROD.

It did happen day 1. Not only that but there was someone who posted Project Gotham pictures of the screen turning fuzzy and the game crashing. Perfect Dark Zero was giving off strange echo sounds. I was aware of an error which said "please insert this disc into an Xbox 360" -_-

Scratching discs. Faulty hard drives. There are far too many hardware errors for me to remember on the first few years.

And these faults were found on the first night so stop kidding yourself.

To my understanding, Xbox had problems before it was even launched. Employees from Microsoft reported defects but was told to move forward with it anyways.

Retail employees reported defects on some of the consoles but were told to sell it anyways. Hence, Microsoft was hit w multiple class-action lawsuits in 06-08 era for knowingly sold defective units.

However after the Jasper chips were released, most of the problems were solved.

The disk scratching issue was solved by updating the manual that ur not suppose to move the console while the disk is spinning. And they also slapped a sticker on the tray that also states the same thing. Which, didn't really solved the issue but did stop anymore lawsuits from happening.

The single Guy who filed the disk scratching lawsuit was paid off by Microsoft in a undisclosed settlement.

Currently, the xbox360 hardware is pretty good with lots of USB ports w no over-heating issues. Looks a lot better than the cheap looking super slim ps3. The slimline Xbox shouldn't have disk scratching issues.

And to be fair ps2 also had issues from the beginning.

I'm pretty sure ps4xbox720 would also have issues from day one.

@Monstar

Going by what you said...so this makes it the second worst launch?

firefly691349d ago

It seems US players are the beta testing for the EUROPEAN release!Im sure this is a software problem related with the patch that was release by nintendo!More actually the lack of information from nintendo is disturbing!

GreenRanger1349d ago

Freezing issues, eh?
I've got just the thing for that...

LordLaguz1349d ago
