Nintendo has a good piece of advice for those who are giving a Wii U as a Christmas present to someone: open the Wii U and run a system update before you give it as a gift to the lucky person. This will make it “good to go” as soon as it’s opened, according to Nintendo.
Nintendo Tweeted the “pro tip”, which you can read below:
Giving #WiiU as a gift? Pro-tip: Perform system updates before wrapping so it’s good to go as soon as it’s opened!

It’s a great idea. If you were lucky to find a Wii U at a point when the console is almost sold out everywhere, go the extra step and run the system update (which can take a while) before wrapping it up. And you should do it soon, because Christmas is only a few days away.
