Wii U Internet-connection rate stands at 74%

Much like the 3DS, Wii U is experiencing a rather high Internet-connection rate. Speaking with investors during Nintendo’s latest financial results briefing, president Satoru Iwata said the ratio is up to 74 percent. Nearly three out of every four systems have already connected online.

“The Wii U is a game console you can enjoy most with the Internet connection and the current Internet-Connection ratio is 74%, which means that almost three of four consoles have been online already. This is clearly higher than the previous hardware system we released. We will continue to inform our consumers about the advantages of using the Wii U consoles online to further increase this ratio.”

I have a musing.

What do they expect when they limit system functionality before a day 1 update? I mean unless they release updates in disc format (which I assume they must have to to enable backwards compatibility for people unable to connect online) are they really expecting the percentage to be any lower? It's like they are bragging just for the sake of having something to say, or am I being too harsh?
