Satoru Iwata apologises for the large day-one Wii U update
Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo has apologised for the rather large and slow day-one update for the Wii U.
Wii U users have been faced with a mandatory 1GB update for their machines which can take a while to download before they can begin actually playing games on the Wii U. There is also the added peril of the update permanently breaking the Wii U if it is interrupted.
Iwata-san said "Personally I think that users should be able to use all the functions of a console video game machine as soon as they open the box."
"So I feel very sorry for the fact that purchasers of Wii U have to experience a network update which takes such a long time, and that there are the services which were not available at the hardwares launch," he added.
