Why Do You Care About Waiting for Wii U to Update?

Tynan Muddle at Aussie-Gamer.com writes: "After three long years of constant badgering from the world’s press, it didn’t surprise me that Nintendo’s Wii U launch would be the target of mass hysteria in those same circles.

And indeed it happened; hours after the Wii U went on sale in North America (the first market to get the console), one reporter jumped on Twitter saying his console was “bricked” because he pulled the cord out mid-firmware update. This was a pretty dumb thing to do, especially from a guy who writes for a technology publication who should know very well that gadgets need to be babied through their update process." (Nintendo, Wii U)

I was wondering where all the hate came from too, but then I remembered that this is Nintendo and "grown ups" (read tweens and teenagers) hate Nintendo..

And I'm sure after the next CFW is released, people will be waiting for the next PS3 update which will not be small or short.

I doubt they will make anywhere near as big a deal as they have made about the Wii U updates which were announced and known to be coming in advance.

To the people upset by the wait, I recommend that you watch Louis CK's bit on Cell Phones.

my ps3 took longer to update gt5 (that was nearly 6 gig and across 7 packets) than my Wii u took to do a full system update but no one complains about that.
