lol are you guys guys gonna keep blaming or keep using the PS3 as a scapegoat for Nintendo mistake. its an 8 year old console for Christ sake. this should have been a last-gen issue The WiiU supposedly is Next Gen right!?

the ps3 i personally have not problems with..i have a problem with the sony/all fanboys(not everyone) that like to spout..what was the word.."RUBBISH" AND LIES....MOST sony fanboys change their tune for the sake of sony..


from the ps1 days upto the ps2 days....ya where singing the...we have mores games and we sold way more they you guys.. now the ps3 didnt have no games and the power wasnt helping it wat were ya saying then..NOTHING but its got more POWER..

what mistake would that be.. not following the trends.. "NOT BEING DOWN WITH THE POWERFRIENDS"

that's all it ever been with nintendo... you sony fans hate nintendo but want there games..

What are you talking about? This has to do with updates, not specs. It was a comparison, showing how something was alright when one company does it but gets put into a negative light for another.

Nobody is blaming the PS3 for another console's system updates lol

If you think the new systems wont need patches and updates I will bet you. nPut your money where your mouth is.

You could also argue that Sony have had eight years to refine and streamline the PS3 update process and haven't... Nintendo have had 7 months.

Updates are updates - the fact that we even have the technology to now improve our existing hardware via firmware updates still amazes me. At 42 years old, I can guarantee you that this sort of feature simply could not exist technologically 20 years ago. The fact that people complain about system updates baffles me -- they are ongoing *improvements* to your system, coming at you from the hardware manufacturer, for FREE -- quit whining about the 30 f**ing minutes it takes to download and install. People are so spoiled and impatient these days, I tell ya. Oh, and GET OFF MY LAWN! :)

Exactly! Everything these days has updates from your Ipad/Iphone, blu ray player, computer to your game system. I'm happy to take time to download an update as it shows the company is looking at ways to improve upon things that are going on with their products. If they weren't doing that I could see a reason to whine but not for this!

Agreed, and by the way we are the same age. My partners dad bought a Samsung smart TV 3 months ago, and when I set it up and connected it to the net, guess what? A 60 min update, and it is just a TV (a really, cool one). It updates itself now at night at 3am now because I programmed it to. In the past 3 months it has updated at least 3 times that I know of.

Some of the people who comment on Nintendo Updates don't even have a Wii U, and they just comment on the article to bash Nintendo. Very childish.

I don't believe that the first comment on this article was that Nintendo is updating their system, despite their being a lack of games. . . System updates don't always revolve around games. They revolve around keeping the operating system in suitable shape; making necessary adjustments, improvements and adding new features as time goes on.

Good crimedy - You people are actually COMPLAINING over a system update? Cable boxes get updates. Tablets get updates. Computers get updates. Smartphones get updates . . . Really, are you kidding me? You're trying to down-play Nintendo for releasing an update to their system - especially when so many have been complaining about speed problems and crashes/freezes? Really...really?

No, no, no. Humanity isn't that pathetic....impossible...

Wow, I just clicked on this article so I could see if anyone had commented on the actual update to see what changed. Instead I get to read some guys tirade about how the system has to be updated every so often. The story of my life every time I boot up my 360 there is an update to either the system, Xbox Live, or a game I am playing. Big deal, that's the facts of life buddy, if you think that suddenly updates will disappear come the PS4/Nextbox, you have another thing coming.

As for the games remark, I won't even respond to that fully. I have found plenty of games to play on my Wii U (some exist on other platforms but I never played them before so I am experiencing them on the Wii U for the first time). Besides, with the VC launching I now have Super Metroid to go back and beat while I wait for the next wave of games.

So what was changed? Did they get 3rd party wii motes able to work in Wii mode yet?

Still waiting to play some Wii games on the Wii U. Like Mario Galaxy, Twilight Princess, and Punchout.
