this will be good lessons for micro/sony on what not to do when they launch there new consoles.

Seems like it is being over sensationalized. I mean that there are a few bugs but to take a single or even a few reports and present them in a way that makes it seem like an epidemic.

The patch...is it 5gb or only 1gb? If you think your system is stuck in the upgrade mode you can't simply turn it off. It isn't a windows PC so the bricking can be user caused.

All of these "issues" can and will be addressed. To think they won't is preposterous. Let's get through Xmas and then see what happens. The games will get better. The features will get better. The service will get better.

But I guess these had to be reported but there are those who feel compelled to say the sky is falling every time they see a leaf drop. It doesn't help when the trend of reporting something and reporting that report and then reporting that report leads to incomplete or possibly inaccurate information.

I agree with christina.

After the seriousness of your post (to which I agree 100%), I laughed so hard at Christina's reply, I farted.

XD

not much went wrong ...just a bunch of haters not wanting it to do well after the wii won last generation.....its not a ring of death..after the updates and features are on board...all will be fine..its a system with endless capabilities

Capabilities that can be/were done this gen though. Come next Xbox and playstation and things can go downhill for Nintendo real fast. If casuals continue not to buy third party games and if the core don't find buying games they already own necessary Nintendo can also loose third party support for the wiiU.

In short, they rushed the product.
It should not have a 5GB patch at day 1 and people should be more wary of what it can do.

shackdaddy1344d ago

It's actually a 1GB patch...

BattleAxe1344d ago

Either way, if you own the 8GB system, that ain't cool.

Glad to see we're already on the Wii U hate topics... hopefully now people will shut up about the Vita and write doom / gloom for the Wii U.

boybato1344d ago (Edited 1344d ago )

Not that I'm glad but there was a LOT of Vita is dead articles and not to mention Ninty fans commenting in full force. Anyway, so how does it feel guys when you hear comments such as "Yes, got a Wiiu, time to get an HD tv. yay!!!" comments?
