GameXplain: "Join us as we compare the latest Wii U system update head-to-head in a speed test to find out how much faster it is! We compare the load times of a bunch of screens, like Miiverse, the browser, and more!"
Whoa, it's way faster!
Didn't Nintendo already demonstrate this themselves?
Yes, but this post let me know the update is live so I can patch mine, so it served some purpose. :D
To Nintendo's credit I actually think they may have downplayed the speed improvement a little in their video. Pretty much everything seems a little bit snappier. Nice one Nintendo, thanks... Now get back to making some damned games! :)
they're still doing updates and things?? lol
yea just like there did a update for the vita last week or the upcoming update for the ps3... what kind of reason is that.... still doing updates..lmao
i was only talking about wii u they should just stop selling them . . . ok im joking.i just cant be so ignorant
You're about as subtle as a car crash.
I just did another Update for my PS3 last night, So your point is?
absolutely no one is understanding what i was trying to say of-course every freaking system updates i just updated my ps3 and vita the other day. all i was trying to say was that wii u is garbage
I wander if it fixes framerate issues in certain launch games like batman or darksiders 2
doubt it, those would be up to the developer to release game updates. A firmware update is not going to suddenly optimize poorly written code.
You can't patch a console to fix game. How a game runs depends on how the developer makes it.
Good job Nintendo. Hopefully the wii u owners are happy now.
I fired it up today and man oh man is it fast! Too bad it didn't launch like this... Now bring on the games, till then MH3:U will have to do, I just can't stop playing it, I'm already 125hrs in...
Its fastER by roughly 50% however there are somethings that arent.. The web browser may have to do with the net connection but actually loading games takes longer.. No big deal cuz its not long but the system still takes around 10sec or so to switch between apps..
LMAO no it doesn't! Maybe his does but NO it's faster! Believe what you want I really don't give a crap!
Why the !!!!!!!? lol are you mad about something? Take a chill pill man.. Your game will boot up eventually.. The system wait times must have you on edge
I ain't mad at nothing, just stating the facts not trolling the net spewing false information! I'm loving how fast my Wii U's OS is, it SMOKES my PS3's OS like a pack of Kools and it's ONLY it's second or third update lmao!
I didn't realize how slow the pre-update OS was until I saw the video. I had gotten so used to it, now with the new OS 3.0, it's like lightning.
I've played my Wii U more in the last few days than I have in months partly because it's just that more satisfying not having to wait for things to load ...plus all the VC games that just released.
just paid a dollar 36 for super mario world, and raymans for free?... awesome
I know for a fact games open faster. I loaded FOTNS 2 and the game boot music cut out mid beat and went straight to the menu. lol
