Nintendo copied Sony

By allowing the Wii U to download software while off.


This is a good thing, because that's an amazing feature.

I remember when Nintendo fans kept saying Sony copied download codes from them. Those were the days.

Did they? Well, it's a good feature. If nobody could copy simple features from anyone, then only Windows computers would have mouse pointers.

Didn't Xbox do it first, in terms of a gaming console?

The 360 still doesn't allow low power download mode. I remember reading it was because the CPU is used to do something to the incoming code before saving to the HDD. Not 100% on that though. It was something to do with QA IIRC, which is also why they don't support modding as the QA codes would not be present in mods without verification.

The PS3 doesn't download anything when it's off.

So even if this were true, thats a total of one thing they have copied? When pretty much all of Sony's hardware is copied from Nintendo. I would say they earned it, and a lot more.

No console does that, at most they get into a low power mode or sleep mode while still downloading....

What does the PS3 does is you can set it to turn on automatically at a set time, and check for updates, patches and stuff, then download it, install it and it turns off again....
