To be fair, is for playing Wii games in the Wii U, is not like you are not gonna be able to play Wii U games without it, some PS3/Xbox games are unplayable without the patches...

Gonna suck ass for people in 3rd world countries....


If you live in a 3rd world country, you probably aren't wasting your money on video games.


well they probably don't even have electricity in those countries so thats even less reason to buy them.

I just hope Nintendo's servers don't get overloaded causing slower downloads and possibly error codes all over the place with 30 topics on gamefaqs about the update.

Why do americans love to use that word so much?


"Third world countries" are 3 words.


Now, if you're stupid enough to point that out...

Most probably has a connection to use, but Nintendo makes it a bit more bothersome by requiring an adapter if you want to use Ethernet

The day one patch adds more than just Wii BC.

If anybody doesn't have internet in this day and age, they're SOL.


I have solid internet while at school, but at home we cannot get anything better than 27k dial-up. Thankfully I am at school for the time being, but the tone in which you present your argument suggests that not having high-speed internet is somehow the fault of the homeowner. Yet, much of the time, that isn't the case - it's literally impossible. And unlike the 3DS, the WiiU isn't exactly designed to be carried into town to steal some free WiFi from somewhere like a coffee shop or restaurant.

Now to address the news more directly - I think this is very unfortunate, but I can't exactly be mad at Nintendo. They've provided us the ability to do this, we all should have known there would be certain requirements and hurdles that would leave some group of people with challenges.
