Nintendo aware of WIi U complaints

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Wii U

Has few steps in mind


It has come to our attention that Nintendo is aware of the issues plaguing Wii U owners and the company has a few things to say.

The company is "aware that users are experiencing load times when they launch or switch between applications" and is "exploring ways to enhance features for consumers’ overall experience", which may not sound that promising. Apparently, “instances of system freezing are rare and unlikely to occur”. Should Murphy's Laws intervene though, Nintendo advises unplugging the console from the wall for 10 seconds and applying the latest system update.  

Unfortunately, the latest system update apparently takes a while, reportedly up to two hours, and is another problem users are complaining of, so we're going in circles here. In fact, some have bricked their consoles by turning the console off during an update, which, although not a very wise move, isn't a laughing matter either.

Other than that, the console seems to be getting solid reviews as far as innovation and potential goes. Many of the touted features are yet to be made available and the device itself lacks serious horsepower, so it may take the Wii U some time to gather momentum, but for some reason we're pretty sure Nintendo will make it.
