For those complaining about how Wii U doesn't play dvd/bluray/audio cd/etc...

I wouldn't mind the multimedia functionality if we actually had that in Europe.

I mean, we have Netflix and Lovefilm, but I'm guessing some sort of legal wrangling has been slowing down TVii, which means we don't have the likes of BBCiplayer.

yeah I am quite surprised that the iplayer isnt up on the Wii U yet in the uk. I would have thought ITV, 4 on demand and the BBC would get their online streaming onto the Wii U as fast as possible.

Old and outdated argument, as proven by the web browser, Netflix, and similar being on the console. Not having proprietary media playback wasn't philosophically motivated, it was just a business decision.


This.

On the other side of it, people who do complain about it do it solely out of ignorance, trolling and lacking the higher functions of an average human. Pretty much kit is crying for the sake of crying.

I don't even know why people want to play movies and music on a games console anyway, isn't that what a computer, DVD player etc. is for.

Eh, they're simple features to add, and they're expected because of how standard they've become.

Nintendo consoles may be about the games, but they haven't showed it with the Wii U so far. Soon, hopefully.


stop trolling


Dude, shut up. There's absolutely nothing wrong with what he said. He likes the console, we all do. But they're not perfect. However people like you are a serious problem with all three consoles. Mindless zombie followers that call any constructive criticism dissension in the ranks. You don't help Nintendo improve as a developer that way.
