I've been playing the Wii U all afternoon with my family and I have got to say I am really impressed. Nintendo Land is a much deeper experience than I originally expected. The Game Pad is a superb controller and is used excellently. My only small complaint is the loading times between screens. However, it is possible that that issue will be resolved with future updates. Way to go, Nintendo!

I foresee what you'll do there.

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?

Actually it's only a 1GB download apparently. People are reporting that it's taking about an hour and the average internet speed is around 9Mbps. So there are two possible ways to look at this.

If it's downloading it at full speed and then that means you're waiting for the console to verify stuffs so about 45mins of that hour doesn't involve downloading. In that case you'll be waiting for about 2hours 15mins on your what I'm going to assume is 1.5Mbps (not "1.5MB") 'nets. If however the server was loaded at the time and people were limited to ~2.2Mbps as a result it means you'd only have to wait 1hour 30mins.... while everyone is by then only waiting 15mins.

Uh, didn't I say "1.5 or so MB per second?"
I did assume I would only 'get' about 1 mbps so I wasn't too far off, and for some reason my internet seems to go slower than that actually, even when nobody is using it...

1.5MBps is 12Mbps so I assumed you meant 1.5Mbps even though you said ~1.5MBps... because Mbps is how you measure internet speed and I doubt you'd be complaining as much about 12Mbps. Still, with 'nets that slow you'll probably be waiting between 1.5 and 2.5hrs. Not as bad as it could have been if it was a 5GB update as people originally thought.

It is sad when we have gotten to the point where we complain about load times. Think about the people that have to struggle to not starve to death ot die of dehydration. Their problems make long load times look like a godsend.

When we're talking about consoles, it's a common thing to complain about the load time. Why do u include world problems into this? We weren't talking about food, and this means that u can't complain about the weather if it's .... If it's raining as ... outside I can't complain because poor people would have been happy if it happened in their sunny place. This doesn't make sense... I have respect for people who starvs to death and understand their life is tough, but your point here was ridiculous!

It just seems sad to me when we get to the point that we complain it takes 10 seconds for our shiny new consoles to turn on. Think about how lucky you are that you have the money to play and buy video games in the first place.

Why even get a Wii U then. You could help starving kids with the money, and just play on your old wii while thanking your lucky stars that you have the money to buy and play video games.

@Popo_man While you may have a valid point, however the point of this thread is to keep on the topic and you were deviating a little. Plus what you were talking about was actually pretty unrelated. Just in future, don't try and reach for those types of topics otherwise TBD may lock the thread.

Anyway some of us are saving really hard and some have already done just that. I think we should just enjoy what we've got now and not worry about the little details too much. Well @Popo_Man if you have to worry about someone, worry about me, because my parents are allowing me to buy a Wii U because I'm having surgery in hospital soon and since i'm not gonna be able to do much for at least a month, they agreed to let me buy it.

Back on topic, I may've mentioned before about what i'm gonna get, I'm most likely getting the Premium Bundle, plus New Super Mario Bros. U and Zombi U. As far as I've heard, those are some of the best launch titles. I'm not sure myself on those Wii U ports like Assasins Creed III or Batman Arkham City though, some of these games are new and some are old or 'game of the year' editions tweaked for the new control scheme. I'm not a huge fan of the PS3 or 360 and even though they've brought them over to the Wii U, i'm still a bit skeptical because I've never really played a ton of games designed for HD systems. Can you really believe I've never owned an HD system up until the Wii U? I know they'd be others like me out there who've held off buying one until now, well at least i'm not the first.

Yeah, the "people are starving" argument is an oft abused strawman. You can't complain when there's a pothole on your road, when a website breaks or when you pay good money to go see a movie and it turns out to be horrendous because some people have it worse. First world problems. You argue that it's a good idea for the gov' to invest in road and rail and you get people saying they should scrap it and spend more money on hospitals.

The truth is we wouldn't be where we are if there weren't people complaining about things. We built shelter because people complained about exposure. We made bread because people complained that tree roots and animal meat wasn't good enough. We rode chariots because people complained about walking. We made cars and trains because horses weren't good enough. We build power networks because we didn't want to live in the dark. We built the internet because.... the US was scared of Russia....

So complain we must even if it's something stupid like the ten second load time on a console from Japan.

I didn't mean for my post to derail this topic, so back to the Wii U. I do admit the loading times can be a little annoying, and I know that me saying this is hypocritical.

Sheesh! I was just posting my impressions of Wii U and everyone goes bananas!
Anywho, I am enjoying the Game Pad more than I originally thought I would. I can't way to see how future titles use it.

I foresee what you'll do there.

The launch games for Europe has been confirmed. It looks pretty much the same as the US one except it's laking Ninja Gaiden and Scribblenauts. http://loading.se/news.php?pub_id=22387 (The site is in Swedish, but you can se the list anyway. Wasn't able to find the original source.) Very, very happy that Darksiders 2 is one there!
