The Wara Wara plaza is really neat! Its fun to just see the things people will say and draw.

Just played Nintendo Land with my sister while my family watched. I swear, it was like I was trying to sell a system we already own. "So what does this do the Wii can't?" Those were the questions I had to answer.

Yeah I'm deffently thinking of bringing mine to my cousins house (who have wiis) to how them what it does different

Welcome to my emassary of...

I asked this earlier in the forum, but I want to ask again now that more people have the system, does the disc slot glow? I have heard some people saying it glows white when there is a disc in the system. Is this true? Does it stay on as long as the disc is inserted or does it just blink when you put the disc in. I know it is a really minor thing, but it was something I loved about the original Wii for some odd reason. Thanks.

@Ecto, there's a small light LED above the power button that when glowing indicates there's a disc inside the system. The actual disc slot doesn't glow, at least I don't think.

Ah well, hopefully I'll get it this week, since it shipped today.
So what's up with that major problem with the huge update?

My online preorder was confirmed on Sunday and it just said to expect it arriving between 11-21-12 and 11-27-12. I don't usually preorder things but so far so good.

Similar for me, I pre-ordered from Wal-mart, (Because I get an employee discount.) and they said that my Wii U was shipped on Saturday, and it's supposed to come on the 21st.

I used to travel the stars, then I discovered Earth, and these incredibly addicting things called 'Video Games.'
And they said you couldn't buy happiness!

I don't know if it's been asked already, but I'm confused about hard drives on the Wii U. Can you use a portable HDD with just the one USB cable attached? The Nintendo Direct only mentioned HDDs with 2 USB cables (which I've never seen before.) There's a good sale on a portable 1TB HDD until tomorrow so I was going to buy it if it worked on the Wii U.

WaraWara Plaza and the Miiverse message board is definitely how I wanted it. At least I know when I get a Wii U those things in particular will be good.

Can I still access my Wii saved data from an SD card? On the Wii mode, without using the transfer?

I don't want everything to leave my Wii, I just want to have my saved data on the Wii U should I ever want to play certain Wii games.

Isn't it an all or nothing proposition? Can you be selective on what you transfer?

^ Well that's for transferring. Am I able to just access save data from an SD through the Wii mode?

It's similar to how Gamecube memory cards work. I can have it in the Wii and access saved data from there if I were to play Gamecube games with backwards compatibility.Is it not that simple with the Wii U playing Wii games except with an SD instead of a memory card?

This is all a hassle. I don't want to format my Wii of all data just to occasionally play Wii games on my Wii U with saved data intact.

I was able to pick up my Wii U today, but it's being held hostage until Christmas.

I forget, does Wara Wara Plaza show everyone or just people you know? Because, if it gets to crowded, it would be cool if there were communities you could have on it, as in just showing NL users.

With my 1.5 or so MB per second internet speed it might update in 3 hours.
Ah well, I can wait a few additional hours, I've been waiting for like.. What, +2 years now?
