"You get what you pay for" comes to mind?

i get what i pay for... yea a really great console that has a few quirks to work out... just like most consoles..

Took me ten mins , it really does depend on your connection I'm lucky I have fibre optic but know what it's like to have a slow connection that is why I upgraded I hope everyone's update went well for everyone .

"can take up to an hour to download"
That depends on your internet connection.
Some people could download big firmware updates in minutes, while it could take hours for other people.

You're correct; the article's title is ambiguous to a laughable degree. It could take two days, or a week, or even three months to download, should my internet work slowly enough.

Unfortunately, poorly-written articles are often the result of poorly-educated "writers," and that's something we see a bit too much of around N4G.

took me about 30 minutes, but I was on YouTube anyway, so I wasn't paying attention.

Im on a 50mbits/s connection. That gives me 50/8 megabytes a second. It took me 45 minutes.

Nintendo should add some more servers. Cause I didn't enjoy this download speed at all.

Same as when I had my Wii U and there was that supposed first HUGE update. Took my Wii U less than 25mins to download...and this is on a college residence where there's lots of people using the internet!! On top of that I live in Canada where supposedly our internet bandwidth and cell service is always way behind US in terms of speed and new tech
