I was thinking we wouldn't see the System Update until Wednesday or Thursday, with the VC following on Thursday or Friday, so this is AWESOME news!

i though iwata said that virtual console will comm a day after update. or am i mistaken

AKR1258d ago

You're correct. That's why I said I was expecting the System Update to come on Wednesday (with the VC launching Thursday) or Thursday (with the VC launching Friday)

i read tuesday:/
so yeah it does make sense

evilbart1258d ago

So does this mean the system update will be tommorow?

Dgander1258d ago

Most likely.....i just hope they make it avaliable at midnight so i can let it update, install and shut down while im asleep.

This is one of the reasons I want a Wii U (regardless of my stance towards the console) is to get my retro fix on but, not having games tied to your account really puts me off from getting one. Still undecided ;)

The games are tied to the account. The problem here is that, as of now, the account is permanently tied to the system, which is beyond stupid.

I hope Nintendo unties the account from the hardware sometime in the future, rather sooner than later. Miiverse is coming to 3DS, PC and smartphones, so here's hoping.

That would be nice. But I think they can pull your purchase and if your system breaks down they will give you credit to re buy games. There was a report about a person whose system broke down and Nintendo gave him back credit to re buy the games he purchased already. But there stance is prob if you trade your system in your loss.

This was one of my main bugaboos with the Wii U, I currently don't own one but if they fix this MAYBE i'll reconsider

@Realplaya: I know, man, I read a couple articles about people getting eShop credit from Nintendo so they could re-purchase their stuff on new Wii U units.

Actually, I'm in the process of doing exactly that, myself. My Wii U got stolen a couple weeks ago, and I knew my digital stuff was gone for good with the console, so I contacted Nintendo's customer service and they told me they would help me somehow as soon as I get a replacement unit. They weren't more specific than that, but I hope they give me eShop credit.

My new Wii U will arrive tomorrow or the day after that (purchased it on Amazon), so I'll find out soon enough.

Still, even if Nintendo gives me a full refund for my digital games so I can repurchase it all... my Nintendo ID account will remain lost, because they can't unlink it from my stolen machine... so I will have to make a new account.

Now I can buy a Wii U. I never got a wii though tempted but with remote gamepad play for the VC I'm sold.
