After more than a year, Nintendo has released Wii U firmware update 5.5.3, which brings "system stability" and "minor adjustments" to last-gen console.
Still mad Nintendo never bothered to give the console a discount before giving it the boot
They were making a profit (probably a good one towards year 3 and 4) so they never cut price. But of course I agree with you from a consumer standpoint. I reminisce on those GameCube $99.99 commercials....haha. I still can't believe I only paid $99 for my GameCube which I STILL love.
The Wii U caused a lot of damage to their brand and their stock value. They might have been trying to recoup as much of their losses as possible. A discount would have been nice though.
The wii caused a lot of damaged. It sold a lot because of the gimmick but ones you own it, it just wasn't what the hype was about
That's just a Japanese company's way of dealing with "failures", they don't sell them for less they just pull everything back.
Sony dropped the price for PS3 after abandoning PS2 bc.
PS3 wasn't a failure though, my point still stands
Wii U still lives
"System Stability" aka Anti-CFW patch.
pretty much, didn't do too much though. Browser exploit still works too
What's the best way to get a wii U tablet replacement? So expensive on ebay
Purely a anti piracy patch I think
This might have had something to do with something in the EU because I've only heard of changes in that region for this patch, so it's not even anti-CFW.
