I like how it takes 3 hours to download and install a 700 MB system update.

Well, I finally decided to dust off the Wii U and update to 3.0. I don't really know why. It's going to be turned off until the end of the year anyways.

All I have to say is, gee Nintendo, ever think you guys might need to invest in some more bandwidth?

People complain about having to pay for Xbox Live but at least Microsoft's downloads don't take a lifetime to finish.

Question for anyone who's ever bought one of those rip-off full retail games off the Wii U shop: are the servers used for Wii U shop downloads as dog **** slow as the servers Nintendo uses to deliver system updates?

Sounds like your connection just sucks mine took no where near that long

I have a 3G connection. It's horribly unreliable for those who don't know and will quite frequently drop to dialup speeds... and I downloaded the update within 3 hours.

I'm a living contradiction. I own a PS3 and a Wii U. A 3DS and a Vita. And the catch to that? I enjoy them all!

Ugh, sounds like your own connections the problem. It took me 30 minutes the day it came out.

I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.

Just out of curiosity - What kind of connection are you using to your modem or router?

On the PlayStation 3, I tend to use an Ethernet cable or I'm limited to "g" wireless. I'm able to max out my connection.

Just wondering if Nintendo is being cheap with their servers or people aren't optimizing their connections.

Took me less than an hour to download the update. My Wii U is just slightly slower than my PS3 when it comes to download times. My 360 is the fastest. Anyway, I can't complain about any of them.

This. Also, with the latest update, you can just download games at night, turn off the system, and play them the next day.
