He implied that their internal DNS servers were timing out. No hardware should ship needing 2 hours of downloaded updates to work properly. That is absurd and invasive. Nowhere in the documentation available before purchase does it say you HAVE to be connected to the Internet to use the device.

By my count, the update was nearly 2 gb a fifth of my total monthly allotment. Be warned, if you are using anything but true broadband, you may have update problems. And just for the record, the Wii Fit U software had to update, also, as did the Mario that shipped with the game machine. Would I buy it again? I like the changes in the program I use, and I like the device itself. Would I still gripe about the updates? Companies should not ship hardware requiring huge updates to work as advertised.

By Miguel on November 6, I'm mostly writing this review to counter balance a 1-star review written by someone complaining about price. Currently the item is overpriced, but that is because Amazon no longer sells Nintendo consoles directly. Do some research and you will see why. Basically the prices on here are being manipulated by third party sellers. Regardless of the pricing on here though, there really is no reason to bash the product itself. Anyways, this is a great bundle, for anyone who likes Mario games and wants to step up from the previous generation.

In the box you'll receive a Wii U well, duh! It also includes the latest New Super Mario Bros. The value is amazing though I wish they had thrown in a pro controller: P I bought this for my brother for Christmas at Target.

Hope you enjoy it too. Don't listen to the one star reviews. Wii U is awesome, I've played it many times.

There are lengthy updates that need to occur upon booting up the system and plenty of wires and odds and ends to figure out a good spot for.

The Gamepad is a great addition to a home console and allows for off-TV play within a close vicinity to the console and comes in handy when you don't want to hog the TV.

And since the consoles currently play virtually every old Wii title, it's a space saver and worth the price. With other consoles having less and less exclusive titles and content, the Wii U is a breath of fresh air and the only place to play some of the most fun and innovative new games, as well as some third party titles that span all major consoles. It's not as powerful as its Sony and Microsoft counterparts, but for a casual gamer and lover of Nintendo properties, it's gotten tons of use in my home and I don't regret purchasing it at all.

Up to 5 players in some games 8. The browser is excellent 9. Many entertainment apps Netflix, Hulu plus, Amazon instant video and more Virtual Console service Gamepad's battery life is quite short; hours 2.

The initial system update took me around 2 hours although it made everything feel smother and faster afterwards I literally couldn't think of any other negative aspect for the moment, but I'm very happy with my purchase and quite anxious for future releases like MK8 and Zelda U! By Neo on March 17, This deluxe set only comes with one game disc. It's a combo disc that includes both Super Mario Bros.

U and Super Luigi U. The second game is actually just a DLC downloadable content expansion of the first game.

This probably isn't a problem for most people and it's actually convenient for me , but the image above is a bit misleading showing two separate game cases. Tough luck if you have a different brand of card. In order for children to use online features, they must prove they have parental permission to do so, which requires a credit card transaction.

Moving about 30 feet away down the hallway into the next room killed the connection. Not really surprising, but I was hoping for WiFi-like range. Fast and easy setup, and it's quick to turn on and use at a moment's notice. I have smallish adult hands and it fits me perfectly. Though I think a child might have a bit of a tougher time hitting the shoulder buttons comfortably.

Not a game-breaker though. U is a nostalgia-fest. Bought this wii u as an upgrade for my wii. At first I was a bit unsure about getting it, there were a lot of mixed reviews but it was worth every penny spent. I can get technical and talk about all the processors and chips and all new things inside wii u but keeping simple the wii u has great graphics and performance. Games look very nice in hd and gameplay is very smooth.

Nintendo has nice system update that help the wii u performance and help fix some bugs make sure to keep your system updated.

Plus there's the eshop channel which adds a whole new library of games that are really fun to play. So always charge gamepad when your done playing and enjoy your wii u to the fullest. By Zombie Mom on January 9, Money can't buy happiness, but this system has made us happy!

My whole family uses it! I have been a Nintendo fan since I was a child and owned a lot of systems. This one isn't much different from the old Wii but the games are great and unlike other systems it promotes moving around more and multiplayers in the same room.

We also own PS4 and PS3 systems but this is my personal favorite. What I like most is that any age can play this. My four year old plays games with me, we like the Just Dance series.

We have a lot of laughs and get good exercise at the same time. We also enjoy the Mario games, they are fun and less violent than many other popular games. Disadvantages are that you need to buy multiple controllers if you have a big family like mine. I did get cheap off brand ones off amazon that work fine about 15 per controller with nunchuck.

When one attempts to play a Wii or Virtual Console game, it reads the content rating encoded in the game data; if this rating is greater than the system's set age level, the game will not load without a password.

Noire , Battlefield 3 , Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 , although all were released for PC, Xbox , and PlayStation 3, only Modern Warfare 3 received a Wii version which was also the least positively received port of the game.
