Miyamoto: Wii U interface performance to be improved 'by summer'

"Since the system was released, we've spent a great deal of time looking at how people are using it and where they feel it can be improved, and we're currently continuing out preparations for this first major system update that's coming," he said in an interview with Time.
"What we want to do is make sure that when we release it, that we address as many of the different opinions about how people would like to see the system improve as we can at once. We hope to cover a wide range of requests while simultaneously ensuring it's a very stable update to the system," said Miyamoto.

The Wii U's system user interface has been widely criticised for its long load times when switching between games, on-board applications and menu screens.

Speaking during a Nintendo Direct broadcast in January, company president Satoru Iwata apologised to Wii U owners who believe the loading times between selecting a game and playing it are far too long.

Without offering a definitive date, Miyamoto said, "We think that by this summer, the system is going to be very much improved over how it's performing currently."

Miyamoto recently told press that Nintendo is working on at least one project that will utilise the Wii U GamePad's built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) functionality as a matter of high priority.

I am actually noticing a difference with the latest update already, doesn't take nearly as long to go between screens and the like. It's pretty cool to say the least. So by the time summer rolls around, hopefully load times will be virtually non-existent and the big guns will be shown. Everyone and their mom is gonna want one of these badboys.

Crash. Bricking. Consoles being sold that aren't updated to whatever version they are on right now. Major systems updates to coming. The choice is clear for me now. Do the Adobe upgrade and buy this much much later. Like 2014. Maybe they will have this these things properly updated and upgraded when they hit the shelves.

This console gets the 360 treatment for now.

@Jackal

This is nowhere near as bad as the 360. And he's talking about the OS speed. They already patched the other issues.

^ Indeed, the interface for the Wii U is pretty solid. An evolution of the interface of the 3DS and Wii. I also like using the sucker as a TV remote, if I were to get an HD box in my room, hell yeah I'd be using it daily just for that alone.

How about decrease the loading time from when I select the game? Or how about loading time in general?

I like the interface. I think it is aesthetically pleasing. It may run a bit slow at times but it's not bad and has a certain smoothness to it, and by that i mean when i click something, it starts to load, it doesn't lag on the screen i just clicked and for me that is big.
