Bricked Wii U. Users fault?

If you turn off/unplug the Wii U while updating, it will brick your system. Now really, are people this ignorant?

You definitely never want to turn off any console or handheld while it is updating its firmware.

That happens with any electronic device and they warn you not to do it so its the users fault.

This is why you don't program your updater to wipe the current firmware before the new firmware is downloaded.

The update takes long enough that a power outage could brick the Wii U.

My question is what happens if it disconnects while updating. Does it start all over at the beginning, or can the update be downloaded in increments?

Understand this: Game reviews are written by people who think being a "video game journalist" is possible.

The update doesn't install until after it downloads.
