Just got my wiiU getting kind of nervous....

#1610330Posted 4/19/2013 7:53:55 AM
Its been updating for 30 mins and its not even 2/8ths of the way there and i heard if the power shuts of or if the internet goes down the whole system is completely useless....

Did Nintendo really let this fly?

You part of the problem dood, your not giving this place a good reputation.

Hold out on the download, It's dumb but it must be done.

Also, as I understand, nothing happens if the power/internet goes down while downloading (I could be wrong)... the problem exists only if the power goes down while installing the updates

If I'm wrong please correct me

They didn't let it fly, that's the way most everything is with a hard drive. If you interrupt the supply of power while the hard drive is being written to, it messes up the installation.

The power would have to go out while the update was actually installing. Most of the time spent is downloading it. The update software does not differentiate to the user between downloading and actually installing.
