Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes. This is what I was thinking while watching this morning's Direct as well. The freezing issue being the most important, I certainly hope they address this with the coming update. I can see why they wouldn't mention it though, not exactly something they want to admit or call attention to.

They had the freezing issue fixed at one point, then a miiverse update brought it back.

I see no big deal, I have my Wii U since december and it only froze twice, they'll fix it along the console's life, or it is an error, like the Blue Screen of Death on the DS, It happens for an uncommon reason. Everything would be good, specially de disc thing and the gifting, but like I said, no big deal.

well you see it is a big deal since, a system shouldn't freeze at random at any time. I don't want to play a game and have it freeze on me.

But dude, it's an error, errors are normal, if it were an error with a stupid thing like when you touch the screen while pressing A, then it would be a pretty big issue, but it almost never happened to me, only hapened on the first week, I updated my Wii U a month after that and it never happened again, I thought it was already fixed. I don't really know if the issue is in a large scale, I guess I'm just lucky then. But they should try to fix it anyway, if they're not trying, they're stupid. The rest still no big deal.

My WiiU has frozen a handful of times, but each time it's been while playing a third-party game... in my case, I can't be positive it's Ninty's fault.

R00bot1137d ago

It sadly is Nintendo's fault, it's a glitch in the (MATRIX) miiverse that makes the system crash, they have fixed it before, but it was brought back in an update to miiverse.

Freezing is a common and widespread issue. I hate having to unplug the console from the mains when it happens.

It may differ from console to console. My Wii U has not frozen since the first post launch update, but a good friend of mine who games for much longer period of time has experienced some freezes while playing for ten or more hours without shutting off the console.

freezing can occur on consoles (and PCs), especially if it hasn't been turned off for a long time (left on standby mode or sleep mode), because the unit doesn't usually free up it's memory cache and other temporary memory storage properly. in the end, for PC's for example, you get the blue screen (in my experience, Windows-based PC's), or memory dump screens. XBox has been popular with the RROD, because of heating issues -- this is of course the worst thing that could happen to your console.

R00bot1137d ago

I get freezes quite frequently (which is quite annoying for me, because the wii u is my favourite console ATM) much more often than only after 10 hours of gameplay.
