Nintendo is planning extended maintenance for the Wii U and 3DS this coming Monday. (3DS, Wii U)

Is this the Summer update we were promised?

Iwata did say: "End of September or beginning of October."

Monday is the end of the September, with Tuesday being the beginning of October and starting the first week of the new month.

Coincidence? I hope so.

I hope it is. This is crazy, but I almost hope they can somehow etch out more power using the update.

Meh, Wii U doesnt have a power issue imo. Like the ps3, it will just take time before people really can really push its abilities.

That being said, I really hope this is setting the stage for the update. And I really hope the update does more than increase speed...

What do you mean power? As in Graphic power? I don't think that's possible with an update. At least not a significant change. Besides I think Nintendo made the Wii U to run all their games perfectly and beautifully and that's the concept they stick with lol.

A lot is possible with an update. Like activating all cores, releasing the lock on the GPU performance.

No, really now, what I am really curios about is the Fan on the SoC. It doesnt run, its passive cooling is all that works right now. I wonder what the fan is for, if it doesnt get any use. Hope it will have something to do with a performance increase, but we will see.

Nintendo needs more than just a little maintenance. They need a total revamp of their R&D dept. Send them to school to learn some common sense.

Oh my goodness, people will find something negative to say about anything pertaining to Nintendo.

Last I checked, Nintendo still has the highest selling peace of hardware on the planet, and they are still posting a profit without using any tricks like selling buildings.

Nintendo is the only one with common sense as they know that price and accessibility are more important than bragging about specs.

They have the most energy efficient next gen console as well as the cheapest. They have the best R&D.
