Miyamoto: “immediate objective” is to make the Wii U more stable

The Wii U hasn’t been selling well during its first 6 months on the market, and those who did purchase a Wii U have experienced frequent crashes, slow system loading times, and general instability.

Nintendo has repeatedly said that they are working on improving the system with new firmware updates, and now even Shigeru Miyamoto chips in on the Wii U system issues.

Speaking to CNN, Miyamoto said that their most important thing right now is to improve the Wii U and its software. He said:

“Our immediate objective over the next few months is to improve the Wii U system and make it a little more stable, a little bit more convenient to use from a system standpoint”

Wii U firmwareWhich is great news for Wii U owners. Some have speculated that the reason Nintendo isn’t pushing for more Wii U sales through advertising and promotion is because the console itself is unstable in its current form. This would result in a bad first impression with new gamers. But those are rumors — nobody knows for sure what Nintendo’s strategy is.

Miyamoto added that the Wii U needs some time before people understand it. He compared it to the original DS, where people thought that two screens wouldn’t work, and we all know how that turned out.

As for improving the stability of the Wii U, Nintendo has been hard at work over the past few months. Just a month ago, they released a Wii U firmware update that improved many of the Wii U functions.

Later this month, Nintendo plans on releasing a massive firmware update to the Wii U, which will also bring NES and SNES games to the Wii U eShop.

    It’s an OS problem, and it’s a given. They would have had to work consisently for years to make it perfect, and by that time it wouldn’t have mattered.

  • Guest

    Uhh. The last update did NOTHING. We are still waiting for the first “big” update sometime in April which will make it go from an impossibly slow 20 seconds to get to the menu down to an intolerably slow 8 seconds. -_-

    • that guy

      the new load times will be 6 seconds and i don’t know what makes you think 8 seconds is intolerable.

    I think the Wii U would be a success with SSB and MKU out.

    • The Clockwork Being

      SSB+MKU+Zelda+3D Mario=WTF the Wii U is a success and I am so buying a Wii U for alot of people

    Nintendo is doing the right thing, & Wii U in my opinion, is only going to get better.

    • Nintedward

      Monster Hunter Ultimate is one of the best games i’ve ever played . There… I said it.
      It’s twice as good as MHtri for wii with eye soothing 1080p and amazing 3DS connectivity.

      MHU is a rock solid reason to get a Wiiu if you’re a hardcore gamer prepared to invest a LOT of time into a game. It’s the most rewarding game ever made.

      I can’t wait to see what kind of beast the Wiiu evolves into. Games like X , 3D mario , Mario Kart , Smash bros , Pikmin 3 , Zelda’s will paint a clear picture.

      • Dylan Groot

        It’s not 1080p, it runs like crap, and the gaphics are dull. I was seriously looking forward to MHU, but damn what a letdown. At least if the game would run 60fps it would have been ok, but no.

        • Nintedward

          It’s Native 1080p it runs perfectly fine. It was measured to average 40FPS by a Japanese gaming site.

          Idiot. It runs perfectly smooth.

          The monsters just look amazing. With 1080p there is no Jaggies at ALL in Monster hunter Ultimate. Except of course….. a fuck load of Jaggi’s and Great Jaggi’s ….

          • Elem187

            He’s one of those people who cannot accept that this machine is several times faster than his PS3…. MH3 on the PS3 runs at sub 30fps @ 720p…. which is pretty sad the ps3 can’t run it in full 1080p when the game is using assets from 10 years ago still

          • Dylan Groot

            Wow, 40fps, that’s amazing! Well done Crapcom! And for everybody’s information, I’m a huge Nintendo/Wii U fan, I just don’t buy crappy games. People like you are the reason why these shitty ass ports keep being released. Seriously, the game looks old (because it is) and it should, yes it SHOULD run at 60fps. No excuses. Not Ninty’s fault, Capcom’s fault. get your head out of your asses Nintendo fans, you look like a bunch of fucking teenagers.

          • Nintedward

            You’re an idiot. 40FPS is GOOD , GREAT , EXCELLENT even. It runs locked at the same framerate that the 3DS version runs at so they can play together with no hick ups.

            I’m sure if they pushed the console they could Get MH3U running at 120 FPS on Wiiu.

            You look stupid. I bought MH3U for Wiiu and 3DS day 1. One of the best gaming investments I’ve ever made. Fortunately , I’m not some fussy guy like you who requires 60FPS to live.

          • Dylan Groot

            Are you not getting what I’m saying at all? “I’m sure if they pushed the console…” so why the fuck didnt they?! Thats my complain you retard! I’m not bashing the console! You’re an even bigger Nintendroid than me, maybe there’s still hope for me.

          • Nintedward

            Right. Monster Hunter Tri on Wii was 60FPS. Monster Hunter Tri G for 3DS (aka Monster Hunter Ultimate) runs at an average of around 45FPS going as high as 60 with Some drops.

            They took the 3DS version (the one with all the new content) and Retextured it with Native 1080p. That’s it. They haven’t changed the Framerate from the 3DS version.
            They basically didn’t try at all with the Graphics of ultimate , sorry for my use of harsh language. I will edit it out…

        • Elem187

    I’m sure they aren’t advertising it before E3 and all their system sellers come out. Their 1st and 3rd party exclusives with perfect use of the gamepad and games made by companies like Ubisoft who also use the gamepad well. I’m sure Nintendo has something planned.

  • Silent

    What people dont understand is this:

    The better games we have, the more hate we’ll have! The only reason why people hate on a console is because they have to convince themselves that they are not missing out on anything. With any system, I am sure there is a few games we’d all like to play, but if you’re like me and only have the budget for one console you have to prioritise and it can be hard to see some games (MGS 4, Ni No Kuni, Journey) release on a console you don’t have. So I am sure the haters are just people who would love to try Zelda or a 3D Mario but can’t justify buying a system for only a few games. So how do they deal with missing out on one of the greatest series in gaming? They convince themselves it’s no good, and then more and more people join along also wishing to ignore the fact that even if they don’t like most nintendo games, there is certainly some things that they oughta play. This can be said about any haters, not just those who hate on Nintendo. So trolling is only lying to yourself. And whats more ironic is that some trolls in this comment section actually own a Wii U.

    • The Clockwork Being

      you my friend have just analyze what most trolls do.

      Metal Gear Solid won’t be exclusive to Sony anymore, the development costs are too high for it to be funded solely by the publisher.

      Unless Sony pays for it, it won’t be exclusive.

      I’m not saying they’ll make it for Wii U but you know.

      • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

        Wii U can’t handle that game.

          Actually it can since MGS V is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 and since the Wii U is more powerful than both those systems its pretty obvious it can.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            We have yet to see evidence that the Wii U is more powerful than those systems. Having a better GPU does not make one better. Game for game is how you know if it’s better.

          • Guest

            DERRRRRRRRRRRRESODUIGIOSUDJGFDJHPA

            You know… It has more ram, faster disc read/write speeds, new architecture processor that runs twice as efficient as the PS3, better graphics card…

            How do you even get out of bed in the morning? Do you just block any kind of truth you disagree with?

            “NO! CAPTAIN CRUNCH DOES NOT EXIST BECAUSE I BELIEVE RECESS PUFFS ARE BETTER.” – You

            Come on dude, you’re better than that.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            It does not have a BETTER GPU, it has a newer one. That alone is not the evidence of a more powerful system, just a more updated one. You want to dismiss those powerful CPU cores of the others that make up for any loss in speed?
            More RAM is good, disc read speeds do not effect the 360 and games can be saved on USB so that is a moot point. The CPU being more efficient does not equate to it being more powerful. 6-cores vs 3, would make the 3 more efficient by default – but not better, which of course you could not admit to.
            You are right – I AM better than that, now earn your money with a TRUTHFUL counter!

          • Dgander

            Okay let me explain to you as simple as i can. PS3 and 360 has 512 MB total RAM. Half of the RAM is for games and other half is for system so its safe to assume their GPU’s have 256 VRAM with barely any shader 3.0 features. Wii U has 2GB total RAM with 1 GB for games and 1 for the system and OS so its also safe to assume Wii U’s GPU has 1GB VRAM with shader 5.0 features. Wii U’s GPU is newer (has more and better features) than PS3 and 360 GPU. I really hope you are actually this stupid and not trolling.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            Let’s got with what you are trying to say. By your words, those tow systems have 512MB VRAM and the Wii U has 1GB VRAM. It is only twice as much from your words.
            The 360 has a superior GPU to the PS3 and more advanced features. Since Nintendo has not release specs, we cannot compare the nitty gritty such as RAM type (system and GPU), RAM speed, core clock speed and performance. Older cards can still be more powerful than newer cards you know, even those with more and faster RAM.
            I await your vigorous comparisons of the Wii U and the PS4 and next Xbox! We already know the PS4 will have separate chips for OS, so nothing will be shared. It will have a no contest 8GB GDDR5 RAM, so of course the Wii U cannot compete to it’s actual competition – next-generation machines. Now take that.

          • Marcell Wade

            It’s already been confirmed, that Wii U is indeed more powerful than the PS3 & 360, also Wii U’s GPU has the ability to act and perform the same functions as a CPU, so that means the GPU can take alot of slack off of the Wii U’s CPU, and that’s what’s going to make it possible for Wii U to keep up with the PS4 and next Xbox, it’s called a Memory Intensified design, and it’s a unique and very clever design of hardware by Nintendo, Wii U has a bit more power under it’s hood than you think, just wait till 3rd partys start to master Wii U’s hardware, I see good games on Wii U’s horizon.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            It has not been confirmed by anyone because Nintendo won’t release specs out of embarrassment. The design is not unique and it is not clever. It is a money saving design by Nintendo to peddle more cheap wares. The PS4 is using a similar design but with REAL hardware to make a REAL system.
            The Wii U’s CPU is not much to write home about and are there mainly for WIi emulation. THe 360 and the PS3’s CPU’s more than make up for the Wii U’s better GPU. By the time 3rd parties (hell, Nintendo has not even mastered it yet, so how could anyone else?) ‘master’ the Wii U, the other will be out and there will be no need to want to ‘master’ anything.

          • Marcell Wade

            Your a real idiot man, ofcourse their not going to talk about it’s specs, neither does Microsoft or Sony, tech websites have already taken Wii U apart and looked at it’s specs, and said that it’s great tech, and the design is clever because of the fact Nintendo is giving you some pretty beefy tech at a low cost, also these tech sites have said, “to see what Wii U is really capable of, we need to see games built for it from the ground up”, And Nintendo does have a way better understanding of Wii U’s hardware, they were even holding classes at GDC last month to tech indie & 3rd party developers how to cut development time for new games and ported games in half, with a new frame work that they developed specifically for Wii U, and your very stupid if you think that developers are not going to need to learn how to develop for PS4 & the next Xbox.

            They already confirmed 1GB of the 2GB of RAM RAM is for the OS. Common sense would tell anyone (including yourself) that the GPU uses the other 1GB of RAM.

            See, you just said it in your post, “it doesn’t have a better GPU, it has a newer one” that’s the point, Wii U has a newer GPU, technology improves everyday, see a GPU model from 2005 is what’s powering the current Xbox & PS3 & is less powerful than a GPU, that’s made in 2012 that’s powering Wii U, duh.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            Wii U has a 2011 GUP which was probably from 2010. The 360 GPU had more advanced features on it for it’s time and other comp PC cards. The Wii U GPU can still be weaker. Newer does not mean better.

          • Marcell Wade

            So, I guess you think PS2 is better than PS3, get the flip out of here, lol.

          • Mark

            You realize that you just contradicted yourself. If a console has a better GPU, it is more powerful. It has more RAM, the CPU is newer. Therefore, it has to the more powerful console.

          • Elem187

            “Having a better GPU does not make one better”

            Actually it does mean its better. 95-99% of game rendering occurs ON THE GPU…. the first thing PC gamers upgrade when they want more performance is the GPU, because that is what matters by far the most…

            Your comment is spoken by someone who truly, absolutely doesn’t understand even the most basic and rudementary aspects of computer hardware, how it works and what each part does……

            Everyone here who reads your comments can easily dismiss anything you will ever have to say about hardware because you have completely demonstrated you have ZERO knowledge about computer hardware.. Thats whats up.

            You remind me of this geek who thought he knew it all because he was a geek and people looked to him for knowing it all, but was pissed when someone else (me) schooled him on what he did not know. He knew I was right but did not want to admit it because it would ruin his brand of geekdom. Just by what you wrote, I KNOW that you don’t know what you are talking about. I am still using a GTX 560 Ti and I don’t need anymore power. I can ride this card out for a while. Why? It has the main features that are needed to compete with the better cards. Why? Because you don’t know what makes video cards tick. Newer is not always better and most certainly not more POWERFUL, just newer.

          • lonewolf88

            lol dude you are truely a idiot lets go on a run down of nintendos plan… actually naw because you will just say it fails oh well just wait when you see games like guild wars ect on wii U and the ps4 can’t have it just because of controller issues hahaha but you won’t believe that either even know there starting games that have been hinted and devs saying there going to see here are those 3 games ps4 can’t play because of “controller issues” runescape,guns of icarus, and battle world kronos

            if nintendos plan succeeds they won’t need power they will have pc games i phone games and alot of apps that they could easily get with effort such as E books which was already rumored when the wii U was launching to be on it simple stuff like that will make just ____ that much better then the ps4 and remember tell your friends those games can’t be played on ps4 :)

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            I would respond, but I don’t what you just wrote!

          • lonewolf88

            pretty much the wii U can play pc games that can’t be played on the ps4 or 720 because theres no touch screen controller
            but the wii U can now play games like guns of icarus,tribes ascend,battle world kronos ect ect. the wii U can also play all i phone games which means getting the casuals all they got to do is get ports / the game made on the wii U
            3 devs are already thinking about putting there games on wii U
            those 3 games are guns of icarus,battle world kronos and runescape.
            if runescape comes wow will most likely come there pretty big revivals even know i think wow is better if wow comes guild wars 2 will come get how it works get smaller pc only devs “games that can’t be played on any other console” to get bigger like jagex,blizzard, NCsoft. if this happens which it will if jagex accepts and puts runescape on the wii U then yes the ps4 will fail compared to it the wii U will pretty much force sony to copy the touch screen controller…

            this is also the reason why nintendo is pushing the E shop and mii verse so much to perfect the online community and digital copies of games

            you may disagree which i don’t really care :/ because i know its happening jagex confirmed it along time ago but they wanted to get EOC and rs3 up before making a decision rs 3 alpha comes out april 20nd meaning the decision shall be very soon…

            are you a fucking paid idiot? you just said the wii u cant handle MGSV but it is also on the ps3/360. HELLO MASS EFFECT 3 IS ON THE PS3/360 AND THE WII U CAN RUN THAT GAME. holy shit wake the fuck up, cant believe there is so many damn ignorant people on the internet its scary.

            My need for speed wii u is better then my Xbox version. So yeah, I have two versions so what? I wanted to see for myself and not from the many bias reviewers out there.

            Well, we have not even seen anything on the Wii U even close to it. If Wii U were that powerful, that should be the standard right now.

        • Elem187

          If the PS3 can handle it, the Wii U can handle it with some horsepower to spare… The Radeon 6000 in the Wii U is over 3 times faster than the crappy GPU in the PS3… does that give you butthurt that Nintendo created a console faster than Sony and Microsoft? awwww poor baby.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            IF that is the case then fine, but the PS3 also has 6-core CPUs! Those make up for any loss and exceeds the Wii U.

          • Marcell Wade

            Developers have also said that the PS3 is a bit of a headache to develop for, because of how Sony set up it’s hardware, and developers are actually looking forward to PS4 because it’s way more developer friendly than PS3, also Nintendo is making Wii U highly developer friendly because of everything they have been doing so far, and any game system that’s pushing developer friendliness is good for all gamers.

      • DragonSilths

        Remember the Miiverse Hack? Metal Gear Solid was listed along with Resident Evil and Yoshi Land U…so its coming.

    • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

      You are correct, except that it applies to the opposite – Wii U, Nintendo and their paid agents have to convince themselves and the public (who won’t be suckered this time!) that this system is worth having and keeping. It is looking now as if the PS4 is the system to get as MS wants the system online at all times which is not cool.

      • THEMIGHTYDOOVDE

        The only suckers are PS3 gamers! Film buffs on the other hand had a great deal. That’s why Netflix and Blu ray are the only thing it’s good for. Once PS4 slumps after launch and movie lovers don’t bail it out then you’ll see who’s the sucker!

        • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

          I have a feeling if I wrote that MS would reign supreme and Sony would go down, you would have replaced the PS3 with the 360.

            My Wii plays GameCube games just fine, learn your facts. A one generation BC is all that’s really needed and the WiiU does just that. But it goes one step further in offering the virtual console.

          • neversleep78

            Can people just get a life already? I understand taking time out of your day to read and discuss things you like, but why do so for things you don’t?

            I mean, someone has to spend time going to sites about things they don’t like, logging in, reading the story and other comments and formulating/typing a response. It’s the interet equivalent to driving five miles to the nearest McDonald’s to stand in line telling people Whoppers are better. Wouldn’t time be better spent… I don’t know… masturbating to the creepy CGI man at the PS4 announcement? I mean, I know you’d have a mess on your hands before you could grab a replica Halo helmet to shoot into, but still…

            It takes a special kind of idiot to wake up one morning to go on a board for orange lovers and tell them they’re fucktards for not preferring grapefruit. I mean, that’s essentially what you’re doing. You could be spending time with others like you forming a LARP group where the dude with the biggest boobs gets to be the princess. Hell, you might even get to second base.

            Just, why spend free time attempting to rile people up with stupid comments with the sense of humor of Jeff Dunham on an off day and your grammar and sense coming off as an inbred retard who huffed all his mom’s nitrous oxide? I mean, how many times does she have to tell you that shit’s for clients?

            Go do something more productive with your time. Practice kissing your hand or tell an MMA fighter they’re gay. Or, better yet, lock yourself in the lion cage at the zoo wearing a condom made out of bacon and maple syrup. I heard you get an awesome achievement for that one.

        The truth is, anyone with a life that does not like nintendo, would not religiously bash nintendo websites unless they are looking for news, therefore implying that they could own the console.

    its got plenty of power plenty it will compete with ps4 easily easyilg will it be just as good? no the ps4 has newer stuff and a little more power but itll def cost more but wiiu will compete

      You know, I’m really looking forward to what all the systems have to offer…I probably won’t do more than a wii U but when all the systems do well, we as gamers do better…no sense in dissing any system really…If it is that the ps4 and new xbox are leagues more powerful, I’m really looking forward to seeing what they can do…

      You kids need to chill out and stop trolling this sight already. I’m not sure how old you are, but Zorbo85 is obviously only 27 years old so he has no idea what a true Nintendo game is all about. I’ve been playing Nintendo games since I was 5 and now I’m 32 and I will never stop loving Nintendo. Don’t get me wrong the PS3 and 360 are amazing gaming systems, but Nintendo is were it’s at for me. If I want to play the PS3 I’ll go to my brother’s house, and if I want to play the 360 I’ll go to my sister’s house, but I’m a Nintendo gamer through and through and I love my Wii U. I have played Nintendo systems since the NES, and I have also owned Sega and Sony systems. Sega will always be my first favorite hardware company, but since they don’t make hardware anymore I’ll support Nintendo. So do us all a favor and go to the PS4 sight and praise how awesome it will be and get of the Wii U Daily sight already man.

Then there’s those who are just bias and don’t really belong here. These people are the trolls that say stupid shit like you. You are also the ones who don’t own one so there is no way you can understand and appreciate the full nature of what the wii u can do and potentially do.

  • liamdawe

  • Ben Ifits

    Perhaps the reason Nintendo hasn’t advertised much yet is because they know hardcore Nintendo fans will all have one creating a sizable install base and then when Sony and Microsoft come out with their new systems THEN Nintendo will push advertisements to the general public so it will look like a new console with the bugs fixed large game Eshop indie and virtual console library AND the cheapest of the three. Just a thought.

          • david jarman

            And consoles are multipurpose too.
            If a person has a pc rigged up specifically for gaming then its a gaming pc. If we were to go by your logic then my wii u is a pc cause I surf the internet, I can email from it, I can draw and save pictures on it etc….it’s has multipurpose

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            Consoles are not multipurpose, they just have extra features. You cannot Photoshop on a console or do video editing! You cannot program games on a console or design software.

          • david jarman

            If you can do more then one thing then its multipurpose. Meaning I don’t have to just play games. Maybe your console has extra features, but mine can serve multipurpose like setting up a time I want to watch a certain tv program. My console controls my tv and dvr. Right there alone gives it multipurpose. A feature would be something like my console is black and has 8 buttons with touch pad on the controller. Those are extra features.

        • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

          History shows that console owners do not give a damn about which handhelds fail or succeed. The Wii was a novelty item and in a class all by itself, which is why IT is over but the other two are still standing and could really stand another year or two. Of course, you failed to mention what the Wii U is destroying…

          • Guest

            Well we do have to wait for the other next gen consoles to come out as the Wii U is next gen. I though this would be simple to understand even by you… Dumbfuckiswhatsup

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            If the Wii U is next-gen, then why have all we heard is if it is supposed to be more powerful than the current two? That does not sound like next-gen, that sound like the current battle. Next-gen for Nintendo is not the same as next-gen for the industry.

          • Guest

            Nintendo=Innovation. What was the innovation in the transfert for PS1-PS2-PS3 except up dated graphics , online experience. Shitboxiswhats up

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            What was the innovation with Nintendo besides new controller to make people feel like they got something new? Their systems are like Madden’s now ‘gameplay’ buttons, just there to act like it’s new, but really adds nothing. Clearly the public fails to see the Wii U as innovative. Stop trying to tell people what they need and give them what they want.

          • david jarman

            Cause its the evolution of playing games. They’re are nextgen in the way we play games. Why do you trolls always think prettier graphics and better physics is the only way to be nextgen. Such a narrow view that keeps gaming from truly progressing cause developers are scared to take risks because of mainstream gamers who fear real change.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            Why do you trolls always try to sell the public on ‘less is more’ and Nintendo does it better even if other really do it better? Graphics are a part of the technology while a controller is just a controller. There are but so many ways to keep playing a game.

          • david jarman

            Uhm. It’s more then a controller. Your the simpleton here who can’t get passed 1 screen cause his tiny brain can’t compute. A second screen can give you more interaction with the environments in the game. I guess you can’t think beyond what you can see.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            Here Nincompoops go again telling us what we had better have and accept simply because Nintendo built it. I had a Dreamcast and I liked the off-screen idea for certain types of games, under certain circumstances, namely multi-player in person as opposed to online. When online, it is not needed. Since the Wii U controller is only good for one controller, it is not needed.

      • Guest

        You know when people buy 2 consoles they dont think: Im going to buy the Xbox it looks great and im going to buy the PS3 too so like that I will own a PS3 and Xbox 360. NO. Its always Nintendo and some other console, mostly the Playstation

        • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

          Right. That did not happen for me! Sales don’t support that either. Stop trying to piggyback on other’s success, it makes Nintendo more desperate that a crack fiend homosexual prostitute.

          not me. I own a 360 and a PS3. Why waste money on a Wii or Wii U? Motion controls? No thanks. Wannabe tablet? No thank you. Gimiicks? Keep those away please and thank you.

      • Nintenjoe82

        There’s nothing wrong with what he just said but I actually agree with you there. Nintendo did the same thing not advertising the N64 and Gamecube (in Europe) and didn’t seem to care, much like what they are doing now.

        You can’t argue with the fact that the Wii U will be cheaper and have more units in homes by the time that Sony and MS launch their consoles or do you think they will magic 8 million units each into people’s homes?

        • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

    • Jon

      I like how you bring up the 3DS when it was a huge success and as for problems? 360 had some pretty big problems as at release. Also, the Wii also had it’s problems, yes it went for 6 years without issues but that was after stuff was fixed after the first year of it’s release, now the Wii U has been out less than a year and I am sure it will be like the Wii and the problems will be fixed and then it will be fine. As for EA, EA and Nintendo had pretty much a fight which caused EA to pretty much hate Nintendo because Nintendo was smart and didn’t give EA what EA wanted. You should probably read up on what actually happened between EA and Nintendo.

      as for the Wii U being a failure, I wouldn’t call it that after the last week or two where sales skyrocketed in Japan (being 3rd last week with 3ds first and vita second) and in Europe and also rose in NA with the release of 3 games, Lego CIty, MHU, and NFS and when more come later this spring, and then Zelda released in the Summer, it will be even more healthy and once the rest of the big titles are released, it’ll kick off no problem

      Pretty lucky, or rather, those of us who have I’d say are unlucky. I’ve had some screen skipping issues where the gamepad video goes all freezy/wonkey, certainly a great way to lose at the Octopus dance or DK Crash courses in NintendoLand.

      I also had an issue where the system would freeze when trying to bring up Netflix and have to be unplugged. It finally seemed to have resolved itself a day before it was to be shipped out to Nintendo’s repair people.

      Speaking of rush consoles and cheap. Once again I’m forced to bring up the past with deathbox and flamestation3. I’ve had several xboxes die on me. Hence the name deathbox. I thought I’d help you there.

    Nintendo will improve the Wii U system as well as the reduced time of loading the U’s menu after quitting the game.

  • Justin McCarthy

    you know what’s funny? i come on hear for news and facts because i honestly want to know if i should buy a wii u, and im not some biased fanboy for or against nintendo, yet i look down in the comments and all i see is a bunch of troll spats. i wonder to myself, “is there any truth to these trolls?” so i go and do some serious research on the wii u. more recently i just went and read up on/watched trailers and gameplay footage for monster hunter ultimate, pikmin 3, wonderful 101, and the Monolith Soft wii u game, and i just have to say… these trolls are full of shit.

    • Only a few are true gamers

      I say buy it if it has games you might want and than buy games you want for ps3 or xbox if you have those…There are always games for certain consoles that are not on any of the others

    • The Clockwork Being

      Trolls are trolls even if success was there they would troll on it too. Before they troll you that the Wii wasnt going to sell because it was shit yet when the Wii sells are higher than the other consoles they go on saying that the Wii won the war against itself. I say if you buy a Wii U buy the games that are also going to be on ps3 and Xbox for it as the Wii U is even more powerful than those ones

      • sithWiiU

        Wii won is sales, but in terms of games it sucked. Unless you’re a stockholder for Nintendo, sales means nothing to you. Also, Wii U is inferior to PS360 for the sole reason most 3rd parties will not spend the extra time on Wii U versions. Hardly anyone owns a Wii U, their target population is PS360 owners.

        • http://www.facebook.com/eric.degrechie.3 Eric DeGrechie

          In terms of games it ruled. Find a game more highly rated than Mario Galaxy, then talk shit. The Wii had loads of good games. The shovelware doesn’t change that. If you’re too stupid to avoid shitty games and miss out on the good ones, that’s your fault. Learn how to look. Make informed decisions and you have nothing to bitch about.

          No More Heroes
          Metroid Prime
          Mad World
          Mario Galaxy
          Skyward Sword
          Xenoblade

          These are all excellent games.

    E3 is the ‘redemption area’ for Nintendo. It is there, not the Nintendo Directs that they should explain the future of the console as that is where they’ll get new customers.

  • http://www.facebook.com/KallumSmarties Kallum Nom Nom Smart

    Nintendo should stop listening to people and do what they do best. Just keep on making people wait because they always get hate or you people companies stop wanting to make games for the console but then shut the hell up after once Nintendo consoles become a hit and will kiss their feet.

  • ejownz6

    I don’t notice any instability. Then again, I never play my Wii U since there aren’t any decent games on it. Maybe instead they should focus on providing quality games.

    • Laud

      Your comment is a strange one.

      “I don’t notice any instability” But you never play because you say there aren’t any decent games on it but what happens if really good games come out and you can’t enjoy the game because the console lacks stability?

      Launch buyers need patience or they’ll get burned.

      • sithWiiU

        Funny. Before the Wii U launched, so many Nintendrones were saying how Nintendo wouldnt release a half cocked console…now look. Nintendrones sure do sing different tunes really quick.

        • Laud

          What’s funny is how you lack any ambition to do something productive.

          I find that pretty funny.

      • ejownz6

        I’d rather have a decent game on an unstable console than a bunch of mediocre games on a stable console.

        The console should’ve had stability at launch. Also the launch buyers have had plenty of patience – many of us even buying into this ridiculous concept of a ‘launch window’ only to be let down by that as some great games in that window ended up delayed.

        Stability and security is not something to be bragging about or setting as a top objective. That should be being worked on in the background quietly and we should be pleasantly surprised when we notice improvements.

        Can’t wait for E3. Iwata, Miyamoto and Reggie can all come out and give a speech on system stability and show exciting videos of menus loading faster.

    • MichelChartrand

      Why did you buy a Wii U if there are no decent games on it?

  • MichelChartrand

    Fixing stability issues is great. Next up what they really need to do is get the word out that Wii U exists. Most people still don’t know there’s a new console and many who have heard about Wii U only think it’s an add-on to the Wii, like the Kinect on Xbox 360. To make matters worse, amazon.ca doesn’t even have a Wii U section. All Wii U hardware and games are found in the Wii section. That really doesn’t help distinguish it as a separate system.

    Wii U Needs players. Black Ops II is empty(Figuratively), I can’t even get started trying to do ladder matches, and it seems the only Hardcore mode anybody’s playing in is Team Deathmatch. Last night it couldn’t even find any matches for most games(okay, so it was after 1am).

    I’m still happy with the Wii U and get some good fun out of my games, but it’s hard not to feel a little jealous knowing if I had plunked down my $59.99 on the PS3 version of Black Ops II I’d not only be able to play whenever and find matches, but I’d be able to play with people I know in real life too such as friends and colleagues who still don’t know what a Wii U is.

    This is why I love nintendo. I’ve had multiple Xboxes die on me. I’ve only had my wii u freeze only a few times. Never had it crash. The loading times on mine aren’t that bad. I’ve had games that my Xbox won’t read. New games.

    • sithWiiU

      Those were the launch 360s. I had issues with them too, but once the black 360 released, & since then, everyone knows they have fewer problems. I’ve had my PS3 since 2009, & it’s still doing well, & I’ve never had it freeze or shut down on me.

    The Wii U in my opinion is already good. It has great games like Assassin’s Creed 3 and Batman Arkham City Armoured Edition. And It still has all the great Nintendo games like Mario and Zelda. Wii U hasn’t even been out that long and I am already impressed. I feel sorry for someone who doesn’t have one. It’s just truly amazing.

    • https://soundcloud.com/rauschenmaschine Kristian Kouvo

      I agree completely. It’s another great system from the pioneers of true gaming and its future is looking even better. Just wait a while and it will follow the success story just like 3DS did (after a slow start – same pattern can be seen here).

  • MechLord

    you PATHETIC nintendo slurpers can’t handle the fact your iPad console is dead LMAO!!!!!!

    • JPASK

      Ok, I need to ask. Why are you even here? If you hate Nintendo or if you hate Wii U, then why the fuck are you here? Are you just bored? Or do you just not have a life? Because I’m pretty in this world that is possibly about to entire nuclear war, the last thing you want to do is troll people on a site. I mean why do you even bother, nobody’s going to suddenly say Wii U sucks.

      And speaking of pathetic, why would you waste time trolling on here in the first place? Do you have a job to do? Are an adult? I doubt it because no adult spend and entire night trolling people on a Wii U site in an attempt for lulz. I bet you don’t even have a house of your own and your living with your parents. Pathetic.

    • fireheartis1

      You pathetic Xbox fanboys need to realize if Microsoft makes it to were the system is using DRM all the time it’s going to be the dead system. Sorry bro but my system is just getting started and every since MHU came out Wii U sells went up bro. Plus once more system sellers are out the system will sell even more. What you Nintendo haters need to realize is that if Nintendo goes down in this economy it hurts the gaming industry as a whole, so hope the Wii U starts to sell because if Nintendo fails your precious Sony and Microsoft will be next. At least they’ll have something to fall back on Microsoft has computers and Sony has TV’s, but Nintendo employees will be screwed all the way around. Why would you want someone to loose their job and have to struggle to find a new one bro. That’s just some selfish bull crap right there.

    WII U……………………Biggest fail ever from nintendo since virtual boy!!!
    If they had just listened to patcher who said that the wii U should have launched at 250 bucks with a free copy of a new wii sports game bundled in and Pikmin 3 a launch game it would have sold like hot cakes and nintendo would not be in this lame position!!
    A free game and pikmin would have easily kept every slurper happy till E3!!!
    But again nintendo fails with the price again what they got so wrong with the 3ds!!!

    • fireheartis1

      Wrong bro Virtual Boy didn’t even sell 100,000 units, and as for Wii U it sold over 5,000,000 world wide. Sorry but your the one who as failed. You failed to realize that Nintendo took a loss with the Wii U anyways, and they did have a bundled game that’s pretty cool. Pikmin 3 isn’t finished yet so why would they have released it as a bundle you moron, and why are you talking about the Wii? Your comment doesn’t even make since bro. You and your super fan MechLord need to go droll over the PS4 Daily sight, and leave this one alone. You don’t see us over there talking crap about how the PS4 wont be backwards compatible do ya. No you don’t so shut the crap up and stop your cyber bullying already punk.

      • Zorbo85

        LMFAO!!!you PATHETIC slurper!!pikmin 3 was SUPPOSED TO BE A LAUNCH TITLE YOU TOSSER!!!!At last years E3 nintendo said pikmin 3 and rayman were DEFINATLEY day 1 launch titles you FAG!!!
        The reason pikmin got delayed was due to nintendo STUPIDLY not realising how long it takes to make HD games!!!!
        Now and go and cry slurper boy!!!
        LOL

        • fireheartis1

          Of course they didn’t realize how long it takes to release a HD game you dork. The Wii U is their first HD console ever duh. Man you sure are smart to point that out. Plus I love all gaming systems. Just because I choose Nintendo has my in home gaming system don’t mean a thing. Nintendo is great because they’re a family console, so my 8 year old and 10 year old son’s can enjoy games as well. Plus I get to buy hardcore games like AC3, Ninja Gaiden 3, Batman: Arkam City: Armored Edition, and many more coming. I also get to enjoy the Wii Virtual Console straight from my Wii U. If I get tired of playing Wii U I have my Sega Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast to play. If I get tired of those I can go to my brother’s house to play his PS3 or my sister’s house to play her 360. You see fool I have options as for you, you probably only own a PS3 or 360 so your stuck with FPS games, so put that in your pipe and smoke it. Plus I’m 32 years old and judging by our username your only 27 so who’s the boy now son.

          • Zorbo85

            LMFAO well if they did not realise why tell everyone pikmin 3 was a DAY 1 LAUNCH TITLE YOU FAG?why not say at last years E3 it will be released next july?
            You wasted 350 bucks on a console with 6 year old tech!!!!

  • Rinslowe

    Interesting that Nintendo are open about system instability, but that’s good ol’ Nintendo for ya.
    I’ve been having system crashes every ten or so minutes since 3 days ago, but that started happening only when NFSMW U kept failing to connect to Origin/ Autolog servers.
    Even after playing a different game the Wii U would crash… Then moved the game from the HD to external HD, removed the external HD and no problems!
    Wii U probably does need to be more stable but I not so fondly remember the first few months as a 360 owner back when it launched. I’m surprised I didn’t throw it out the window…

  • Michael

    I agree that this is most likely for the reason for the lack of game releases and stuff, but that doesn’t mean I think it was a good idea. I’m glad they released the Wii U when they did but they should have made absolutely sure it was much more stable. Time is money, and there’s no way there investors like that the console is on the market but is intentionally “biding” its time until it’s more stable.

  • Ace J

    “The Wii U hasn’t been selling well during its first 6 months on the market,”

    the wii u hasn’t been out for 6 months yet. hell it hasn’t even been 5 yet

  • Silent

    No, Monster Hunter Ultimate is a Wii U game.

  • Nintedward

    Nope. It has over twice as much Monsters and content with new areas , Native 1080p retextured graphics , tweaked boss Monster animations , Stunning 3DS connectivity.

    It starts of like Tri for wii , then it turns into Monster Hunter ultimate for Wiiu , effectively providing two massive games worth of content.

    I give the game a 9.5/10. The only way it could be better in my opinion is if the graphics were built from the ground up for Wiiu. Even then they do their job as it is and looks very sharp.

  • MetroidZero

    You’re in such a hurry to troll that you can’t even get the console right.

  • tomtank91

    Well it’s a better version with 3DS connectivity which makes it even better. The only reason people say it looks bad is because the textures have been updated in HD with not much improvement. It been in 1080p and running perfectly is a plus.

    Err isn’t THAT EXACTLY what everyone did with the Wii? They should have compared it to gamecube, xbox and PS2 (and Wii hardware and it’s funky controls beated PS2, xbox and GC in every aspect) but no they compared Wii to PS360, and now people do the same for WiiU by comparing it to PS360 and ALL OF A SUDDEN it’s a wrong comparison by your logic?

    So now you’re saying it IS inferior when just a few comments ago you stated there wasn’t enough evidence to prove it was better.

    I agree. The console could have good RAM, but we have yet to see the CPU and GPU; it may be an APU. Without those essential parts, the console has no meaning. Sony could a decent CPU, or it can be an anemic piece of crap. The same goes for the GPU.

  • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

    “I” meant that these guys are telling us how powerful the Wii U is but Nintendo is too cowardly to release specs which is part of the reason the thing flopped.

  • tomtank91

    it will when they are released

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    I shall clearify it.

    The Wii was pretty similair in power to PS2 Xbox and Gamecube and should be compared with those systems. But people compared Wii with the PS360 (Which in power had atleast twice what Wii had) but instead in power comparison the Wii should have been compared PS2, Xbox and Gamecube. We know the WiiU is next gen and SHOULD be compared to PS4 and 720 indeed. But now when Nintendo fans compare it to PS360 (as they don’t have any other comparison for now) it is wrong.

    When Nintendo fans compare a next gen system like WiiU with PS360 the haters/trolls disagree while THEY(Trolls and haters) CAN compare WiiU to PS360 when GAMES LOOK SHIT (launch Titles) on WiiU, but when Games look way better on WiiU, NFSMWU, Deus Ex: Director’s Cut for example then THEY(haters and trolls) say we CAN’T compare it to PS360.

    On top of that the same trolls who complain about this, are the ones who compared WiiU to PS360 at first because the hardware was hardly better then 6year old consoles in their eyes while it has allready been proven otherwise, and all of a sudden the nintendo fans are the bad guys because they do exactly that what the trolls did during the first 2-3 months after launch of the WiiU.

    And 6 years ago the same guys who complain now that Nintendo fans compare WiiU to PS360 are the ones who compared Wii to PS360 while instead at THAT time they should have compared it to PS2, Gamecube and Xbox and not with PS3 and Xbox360. So When they compare crap games on WiiU to PS3 and 360 it IS okay, but when Nintendo Fans compare way better looking games on WiiU to PS3 and 360, the Nintendo fans ARE WRONG.

    Is it clear now?
