Too bad you can't use the pad itself as a controller, but still, being able to play Wii games using just the pad as a screen is very nice. I turned on my Wii U to get the update ready, but it has already started. Of course the Internet on it has been shut off till half an hour passes for it to download. Oh well, I still have the computer to use while I wait

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

So wait...
Off TV play is available on Wii games, but you can't use the GamePad as an actual controller? It just shows the game?

That's exacly what I was going to say.

Thaks to everybody who has been updating on the update, I dont think there is anything here I ever would have noticed on my own.

So it finished and asked me to restart. Powered off and on, then a real quick install, then a very slow Updating... that might take nearly as long as the DL. Better than a bricked system I suppose.

Anybody up and running yet! Typing from my 7" tablet. It looks and feels the same size and shape, but typing and web browsing is so much better. I recommend Dolphin web browser to anyone running Android.

What does that mean? Free software automatically downloaded?

Probably to auto download certain demos and software liek Sony plans too,

So this mode is actually pretty useless.

Does the Gamepad have those Wii sensor bar lights built in or is that a DIY project?

65%, this might actually take longer than the DL.

Anybody know if Kung fu Rabbit is still on sale? Its the reason I turned on my Wii U over an hour ago. Hate to miss a sale price.

Just getting the Gamepad to display Wii games is a big step. I'm sure they'll get the Gamepad to work with button input at some point. As for this conflict with Wii VC and Wii U VC and why anyone would want to upgrade their Wii VC, well, it has other features not present in Wii VC, and they may include more, like maybe cross-platform play for Wii U games with VC. It would be a steal to get my Wii VC games to become Wii U VC games which are then allowed to be played on my 3DS by the cheap upgrade option.

As a dev of blargSNES, just stop with the claims that o3DS can emulate SNES games accurately @ 60fps. It cannot.

Actually the sensor bar doesn't do anything aside from providing infrared lights for the Wii remote. The Wii remote is what registers the motions

Could it also automatically download patches and updates to games? That could be handy

That would be cool, though I could sworn that feature was in the Wii U already.

Done installing! The Friend List is here thru the Home menu! And the Miiverse load up is different too.

Awesome feature, been wanting to see this for ages. Actually I think there were a few threads where I was saying it should be a feature and a few of the usual suspects ran around saying it couldn't be done. That "WiiMode" was locked and they couldn't push to the GamePad like that. It was doing what now?

The Wii Off TV play option is kind of lame since you can't use the Wii U controller as input... but it's still a feature that I'll probably use. A LOT. Having a full family means that TV time is rarely my TV time. Now I get a second screen in the same room to play... well, pretty much anything that doesn't require motion/pointer controls.

As it stands now, this is a neat novelty that will benefit me a lot. If the Wii U controller could be patched to work as input later on, this would be AWESOME.

maybe they'll send us a demo or announce their plans to do so tomorrow in the direct.

Meowph, that's right!

So I noticed a HUGE difference in loading times from the main menu. Everything is faster

The loading screen for miiverse and the eShop are pretty cool. Plus the text section when you type on the game pad has been changed too.

The Friends list box on the menu is a quick way to know you've been updated. The Miiverse launches w/ a globe and some world times. eShop launches w/ a very orange screen - Kung Fu Rabbit still on sale until Thursday but it wouldnt let me buy it. I thought the eShop icons were bigger - only 4 across instead of 5 - but Im probably wrong.

My tv screen went black twice so I still have that issue. May be time to send it in for repair.
