Does Nintendo seriously think wifi connection > wired connection?

And do they seriously think that downloading a 30gb game off the eshop is going to download fast with a wifi connection?


LMAO!


I want to connect my Wii U to get the newest update and I keep getting connection errors.
If only the Wii U had an ethernet port I could just connect it wired!

Why the f*** didn't they include an ethernet port like every other console that is pushing online and a digital store???

Wii U and 3DS have full backwards compatibility.
Other consoles however..

Is that an actual question? I'm just saying still possible to use one. Get over it.

Because we are living in an increasingly wireless world. Apple doesn't include ethernet ports in many of their computers. Personally, I don't even have an ethernet port wired near my TV.

I'm glad Nintendo lowered costs by not including a feature that is becoming increasingly less used.
