I got the new Wii U Mario and Luige bundle should arrive tomorrow, hope it doesn't take too long to download.

You'll have several updates.
so yes, it will take time.
Good for you on taking the 32Gb model.

wont take long, everything download quick for me, mario kart took 30 mins and that game is bigger then both of those games together, so you should be fine, and mind you I am using Wifi no direct connection.....

Shouldn't take too long. And first thing u should do is set up your gamepad as the remote to your tv. Its super handy to not have to shuffle around multiple remotes especially when switching to off tv play. Not to mention those times when u lose the remote to the longer a problem. I actually prefer the gamepad over the actual remote. It does everything except record on my cable box which actually I'm not totally positive it may do that as well.

Awesome! I feel very fortunate to be able to get a Wii U at this point in time. I'm so excited! :D

This is actually really good since I'll be opening MK8 so much.

What STANDBY features are available? I have everything enabled, but the update didn't download automatically. Also, the LED on the console is red when powered down. Is it supposed to be like that or is it supposed to turn orange like the Wii?

Note: I recently got my Wii U, and the user manual is not very clear on that. Same for notifications. Wii U Gamepad Home button never lights up.

Read the manual!If its power down then its red!Go to the menu screen on the Wii U gamepad and scrooll it every feature is explain on the settings options.

The Wii U can go into standby mode when downloading games, installing patches, and otherwise.

Gemmol1503d ago

it will stay red when its off, but sometimes you might see it turn yellow on its own which is when its updating something or you getting a mail from Nintendo or etc....

Shnazzyone1503d ago

it wont work right away. You have to use some things on the systems for a bit and let it sit on standby. Then, even if the light is red, it will bring up the quick start menu on the gamepad and you can select where you want to go. It is pretty darn zippy. About 30 seconds from power down to being able to play MK8.
