Wii U owners report mandatory 5GB firmware update

The Wii U launched in America over the weekend, and Twitter has seen a flurry of updates from owners who weren't able to play their new console for up to four hours while it performed a mammoth firmware update.

Re: Wii U owners report mandatory 5GB firmware update

I feel sorry for the owners of the Basic version.
Nintendo kinda fucked them up with the storage on the system. Yes I know you can plug in external drives, but how many want to have another box and another cable or two in their living room/etc ?
Even the 32GB is not enough IMO.

Re: Wii U owners report mandatory 5GB firmware update

i'd rather sit through 4 or more hours of waiting for an update to complete... rather then experience everything potentially going wrong.. and ing up...

whereas PS3 owners who play infrequently just shrug and say "so where's the story?"

I am not sure what you mean there.

Re: Wii U owners report mandatory 5GB firmware update

From what little info I gleaned around the net about it, the system actually DL's less than a 2gig file and the file expands to 4.7gig.

I would also assume (I don't actually know) that once that update completes, it shouldn't need that file anymore and could probably either be deleted or it auto-deletes.

I'm sure that future shipments of the system will already be updated and the problem will eliminate itself. Sucks for early-adopters though.
