Didn't Nintendo already demonstrate this themselves?
guitarded77  +   355d ago
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! :)

BeZdaBest  +   355d ago

You're about as subtle as a car crash.

I just did another Update for my PS3 last night, So your point is?
Divine  +   354d ago
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
Neonridr  +   355d ago
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.
lilbroRx  +   355d ago
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.
YoungPlex  +   354d ago
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...
DivineAssault  +   354d ago
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..
YoungPlex  +   354d ago
LMAO no it doesn't! Maybe his does but NO it's faster! Believe what you want I really don't give a crap!
DivineAssault  +   354d ago
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
YoungPlex  +   354d ago
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!
AKR  +   354d ago
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.
Shnazzyone  +   354d ago
just paid a dollar 36 for super mario world, and raymans for free?... awesome
ZeekQuattro  +   354d ago
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
