Wired - 10 Things I Hate About Wii U

On Sunday, Nintendo finally released Wii U, its new game console. We’ve raved about early launch games like NintendoLand and New Super Mario Bros. U, showing that the big N still has the magic touch when it comes to making great play experiences.

Unfortunately, Nintendo is still lagging behind when it comes to creating what consumers are increasingly expecting out of their devices: a feature-rich, multimedia online experience. Wii U, available in $300 and $350 configurations, has a bunch of these features — Netflix, a social network feed called Miiverse, a digital game shop — but all of them have distinct problems that make the user experience less fun than it should be. (Nintendo, Wii U)

That's a clever article title. :)

I hope to get a Wii U soon. I'm more patient with launch consoles (Xbox 360 survivor right here), so I'm sure I'd still find stuff to like.

Wow it sounds like a mess.

Great read, would recommend it to any prospective Wii U buyers!
Know what you're getting before you bust the $350 on it.

OH...............MY........... GOD!!!!!!

Dear god Nintendo has a looong way ahead of them with this one.

I agree. but most of his arguments can be resolved by a system updates. also his arguments about TVii and/or netflix may only be true for now, since TVii comes out in December, which in effect also improve Netflix.

it's not like Microsoft Windows get released without bugs and errors that constantly require updates.

i do hope future Wii U's will be released with the 4-5GB system update pre-installed, and improve the transfer of data from Wii to Wii U. my internet connection speed is not that high to have the convenience of a quick system update.

Miiverse is definitely a joke. I made a comment that I liked someone's picture of Mario because he looked hung over. It was almost immediately removed for being offensive. Yet I can watch a trailer for ZombiU showing a very realistic Matrix style camera shot of a man blowing his brains out.

You go to hell Nintendo, you go to hell and you die.

LOL what a load of shit this guy speaks... He sure does whine a lot!

Plus he came over retarded at the point he spelt "forever" as "FOR. E. VER"

apparently FOREVER = 5 seconds in his mind. Plus, he said "imagine...5 seconds for every tweet" which is bullshit because you can scroll throw all the "tweets" with the touch slide, so.....hes full of shit.

Most of his points are bullshit that will get sorted out , like the non working apps...i mean cmon.

My one issue IMO is the Miiverse tweets are too unorganized. The posts people make on NSMBU get directed to the miiverse, even if they are only directed at that certain spot. "this place is hard" would be on the Miiverse with the title at the top of the area. So it gets a little random

Seriously all of this can be remedied by system updates and he really is over reacting.

Gamers have become such drama queens.

The Miiverse is a much mire calm and comfortable place to meet people to game with.

It just released. You cant expect it to be perfect right out of the box.

Yeah, the GamePad should have come with a bigger battery.

I don't care about any of his other complaints.

I am sure we will see 3rd party batteries come out that will give you longer life with the gamepad.
