New firmware update is out apparently. Is all about improving stability and the "Wii U experience"... which probably mean the same thing

Bleh, I wanted to be the first to point it out, lol.
Hopefully this will fix everything.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Ya, I came on here to say the same about the update. Anyways, I went on a couple other sites to see what it will do, and it will fix 'slow' load times(I thought they were already pretty fast), stop freezes, and other just minor overall system functions. Joystiq said they're pissed off because there's says it will take an hour and a half, but mine says 20 min, now 8. So they must have slow internet or have bad connection to Nintendo through internet. I have 7mb/s BTW... Joystiq is probably updating around 20 Wii U right now for it to be that slow.

PIKMIN 3!!!! xD
...Anyways, did Nintendo actually confirm that Miiverse would be coming to the 3DS? o.0

I haven't heard anything about Pikmin lately... Miiverse being added to 3DS would be a VERY good move for Nintendo overall, having a social network for the games on there, but there's still friend codes that they don't want people to share, so probably not actually... Combining the eShops(accounts) will probably be the next major update if it happens, besides adding TVii and DDP when Japan gets the Wii U. Some crossplay apps would be cool, or Miiverse like you said, but it won't happen for a while if at all. My Wii U update took 30 min. total as a note.

They did but that doesn't mean we should expect it soon.... or expect that much from it...

Well the speed of the loading times were widely complained about. Either way, even if you for some reason thought they were fine, reducing them is definitely a good thing.

Yes, I understand better, faster, stronger is always looked for. As for update load time, mine took 30 min., and 3DS took 15 sec. with 7mb/s. What internet do they even have outside of the U.S. besides Century Link, Comcast/Xfinity anyways? I feel like complaints always come from outside U.S mainly, and the companies we have here are crappy enough as it is.

Netindex. The US averages around 15Mbps, the UK gets 18Mbps, Sweden gets 28Mbps and Japan gets 37Mbps. The worst of the reasonably well off countries in the West are Australia and New Zealand which get around 12Mbps. Italy, Mexico and Greece are the worst in the OECD with around 6-7Mbps. So all things being equal the US on average gets some the worst services in the English speaking parts of the world.

..... and I'm in Australia getting ~9Mbps so... your theory doesn't really hold

Meh. IDK then, my update took a short amount of time compared to people who get supposedly faster internet speeds, so I don't really know what's going on with that... Last time I heard, 15 or so megabytes was better than 7. Haha. Oh well...

Averages mate plus you shouldn't want to be comparing the quality of your countries services to Mexico, Greece and Italy. The US should really be compared to countries in Western Europe (UK, France, Germany), Democratic Asia (Japan, Singapore, South Korea), Scandinavia (Sweden, Iceland, Switzerland), Oceana (Australia, New Zealand) and Canada. Of all of those groups of countries the only one the US is not beaten by is Oceania and even then it's just barely. Country size has a fair amount to do with it but at the end of the day we're talking about actual performance rather than the reasons why.

So odds are that if you hear people complaining about having worse internet performance than you it's either an Australian or one of your fellow Americans. Everywhere else they're getting better speeds. There are some parts of the US which get awesome services and you do get the massive advantage of having lots of content hosted in your country but for the most part, with like for like, you guys are a fair way behind the pack.

edit: oh, and I'm almost 100% sure that Nintendo's updates aren't running at full speed. This is why regardless of how fast your 'nets are nobody is talking about the update only taking 1min. So it might be that "other countries" are complaining about the slow updates because they're not used to things taking that long ;)

Well it does happen more often than not these days with electronics being shipped with faults... If the updates don't fix the problem the chances are some systems might have a 'DUD' WiFi card or something ;)

Ya. You can get 80 mb/s max for residential, and I think in the gbs for business use. Up to probably a tb in some companies. I get what you mean though... They can only output it at a certain rate no matter the input rate is. Probably tops out at 10 mb to save money, right? Apple probably has 1,000,000 gb going right now.

The best mass rollout to-the-property services around are 1Gbps and that's only in very limited areas. There's some in Japan I believe, there's probably some in Korea and there's also some in a city in the US through a Google service. In some areas in the UK there are, or at least plans for, 400Mbps services and in Australia there will be the ability to do 500Mbps to 93% of residential users before the end of the decade.

I believe there are some 10Gbps commercial services in similar such areas but it's not commonplace. The speed record for distance is 69Tbps or 69,000Gbps over a single link but those sorts of speeds are reserved for connecting cities and countries. The strength of a site's server however is based on the speed of the system as a whole rather than individual servers. Even then I think it's unlikely that even a company like Apple has the capacity to deliver 1000Tbps... especially given the whole of Australia as a collective with our 22million people consumes data at an average of around 0.4Tbps according to the latest stats....

See thats what I mean bro... This problem of freezing with a small minority of users sounds more like hardware faults or 'DUD' system/WiFi boards and a firmware update might not solve your issue ;)

I'm not sure that it's that uncommon given I had the problem, a bunch of people on these forums had the problem and about half of the Nintendo journos I follow on twitter (2 out of 4) did also. That would have to be some crazy coincidence for it to be a small number of users. That said chances are it'll be even less common after this recent update. If fixing stability issues was the main focus of the update then surely there were stability issues to fix and the most common ones were the focus of said fixes.
