Anyone else had problems similar? I'm up to date in everything, all the updates and all that. I was just browsing Miiverse looking at a friends comment when all of a sudden I couldn't move the page up or down or select anything. Gah, just when I thought the freezing problem was over with.

From what I understand, the freezing problem still exists, just not as often. Personally I haven't had any freezing but I've heard others still having some problems.

I have had one freezing issue and that was when I was playing FIFA 13. It froze on a load screen and I had to unplug my Wii U

That sucks man. I must just be lucky, because I stopped having freezing even before the update, and haven't had any problems whatsoever. I hope they can get you a new console/repair to you in a timely manner.

My computer freezes, my smartphone freezes, my brain freezes, and my Wii U will freeze in the future. I think it is safe to say "freezes" will continue to happen.

To blessed to be stressed.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

@SCAR392 Not gonna get a new one, the only reason I sent in my old one was because that one must of froze like 10 times, it was getting crazy.

@Ryno_Choryzo I don't remember my Wii or PS3 freezing ever. Why shouldn't you expect something you have to work flawlessly? Especially new? I'll go easy on it though since it's still early in launch. But if I bought a PS3 or Xbox 360 and they froze on me brand new, I'd probably return them... no lie.

It's freezing, no RROD. This stuff happens, and the more complex the technology, the harder it is to predict where errors will occur. It's not all that big of a deal, any gamer should know to save often anyways.

Besides a part of Batman AC where an area wouldn't load despite the loading wheel spinning for at least 7 minutes, I've had no actual cases of freezing on mine.

I just had mine do a really weird "freeze" the other day. Was playing ZombiU, saved, and wanted to shut the console down. I pressed the power button and... nope. Not shutting down. lol

It was weird because it wasn't locked up... I could still move around in the game, bash zombies, etc. But the console wouldn't shut down until I unplugged the thing. Thinking back, I was ultra stupid and didn't try to go back to the home screen. I don't know if that would have worked, and I guess now I never will lol.

Are you sure it wasn't the game trying to creep you out? :-p "You think you can just turn me off and quit? No. This game just got real."

@Trillio281 except for mine because it has been working flawlessly ;)

I keep on telling ya'll the WiiU can suffer the dreaded DUDOD (DUD of DEATH) and if mine was playing up like that I would keep repeatedly sending it to Nintendo... There will never be a magical patch of immense non DUDOD so be realistic people and use the right as a consumer to your advantage.

My PS3 freezes on me occasionally. I have one of the first models. Every system has issues once it's released, just look at the poor Xbox 360.

Really? Mine works FLAWLESSLY. jazz hands

There are bound to be some devices that don't work. If it freezes, simply unplug it.

you could also hold down the power button until it turns off, right? I've done that before with my other systems
