I got the Wii U yesterday I was surprised there wasn't a line up before the store opened,though, as soon as those doors opened people just showed up out of no where! lol I'm at the cash and I look back and I'm like "whoa, the fu-? " If you're wondering, no, they didn't have any extras, just the pre-orders ( in my area anyways )
So yeah, I got the deluxe set, picked up New Super Mario Bros U ( ) and Ninja Gaiden 3 I gotta say, seeing Mario in HD is pretty sweet! -V- The features on the console are pretty straight forward too, I thought I would be getting confused with all the stuff they have on it. It's kinda fun to shut off your TV with your controller lol
The system update took a while since I didn't get much of a connection going...had to move the system a bit to get it to download, then when it did it would go on and off. The update took about an hour and a half - two hours. Not bad considering I heard others had it go for longer ( 1-4 hours. ) After all that, I tried to get on to some of those new apps to check them out and stuff, but I ended up with an error code most of the time...and with my track record of internet connection for VG consoles, you bet it pissed me off lol.
I did call in Nintendo today to see what the problem was, cause I went on the website and tried all I could do. The connection test always worked, but the error codes would always pop up when I'm on an app. So yeah, I talked with a guy and In short, the servers are busy due to everyone just getting the console and setting everything up. Alright, I feel better~ lol Cause really, it would suck not having to use all the features on a console :I
With all the internet troubles though, I had no problem with the hardware its self and I did manage to make a user ID for my account So once things get settled I'll start adding some friendlys~
Anyways, I hope you guys are enjoying your new toy as I am~ Have fun! ^_^
