I think I read somewhere earlier that it applies a patch that enables play of Wii games. Not sure what else is included.

yea update is apparently like a gig plus, most reports say over and hour to do it.

even after that i dont think it has netflix, amazon, etc working.

Also a diary is smart. If you write down a bunch of crazy shit and your grand slaughter goes wrong, you can point to your diary as evidence. "See! I'm crazy!"

Walked into WalMart at 12:10 and picked up a deluxe without a preorder. We have a giant Wal-Mart in a relatively small town; not sure why they got so much stock. There were maybe half a dozen people who picked up preorders.

Updating now. Probably just going to go to bed rather than wait for it.

Called a 24hr Walmart at 930. They said they had 7 but no break down and no line so i drove over and got there at 10. I'm 2nd/3rd in line. The guy in front of me is just there along with his friend but is entertaining the idea of buying one to resell it. So I'm nervous. I hope the break down is majority deluxe. If its basic and I don't get one... Oh well. 2 hours wasn't a huge waste of time.

Other than my Best Buy Midnight launch being incredibly slow everything went smooth. Mine apparently had plenty to go around. I had mine pre-ordered so i showed up at 11:40 and just stood in line. Probably 75 total people in line only 10% or so with pre-orders. 15-20 probably showed up after me but were only able to get basic units. They only let 5 people in at a time so i didn't even walk out until 1:10. And now I am waiting for Paint to dry.

Hooked up my deluxe, tried to connect to the wifi, it can see my network but not connect even if I remove all security. System has locked up hard (to the point I had to unplug it) twice with Black Ops 2.

Guess I'm calling Nintendo when they open tomorrow.

I really wanted a Deluxe Set but I could only get the Basic Set tonight. I wonder If I should go to Target or something in the morning.

After the first update bar fills there is a second one. It doesn't take as long though. Maybe 15 minutes for the second one.

And when you put Nintendoland in it has to update also. Not long though.

How long has it taken you total? And what speed internet do you have?

Went to Walmart to get my preordered one about 11 and there were about 8 people total there, with the longest time being since 11 am. The staff in electronics were totally clueless and said that they had 4 of each in to sell and that those of us who put it in layaway would have to come back at 9 am as they had not planned for it. After a fight almost broke out and the manager threatened to call the police on a guy, then they drop this bomb on us.

I made it clear their ad had stated preorders could be picked up at 12:01 and that I wasn't leaving without one. There was another preorder there and when I went to make my case he went with me. Once I dropped the false advertising threat the manager got nice really quick and told us she would take care of us. Unfortunately they only had SMB, Just Dance, AC3 and BOPS2 so no ZombiU which bummed my new buddy out but I was happy to get my system and get out alive as the hostile hobo stayed lurking around the department.

Now if only the damn thing would update!!

I have Fios so my line is decently fast. The two bars took me I would guess an hour or a bit more.

I'm getting 21 down according to speed test right now. Nothing special.

FYI - my system took a few hours to update (from about 7 to 12 ). Anyway it came in at about 880mb. It gives you access to the shop channel and miiverse and the chat feature. Pretty cool stuff. I do not think many people are through it though since I saw almost no one online on miverse


BTW to the guy who said his system froze twice, mine did one during miiverse and I had to pull the power cord. Hope that is not a sign of a bad system and is just bad software that can be updated...

Ordered my Wii U Deluxe on 11/08 via Target.com. Received their garbage 'delayed' email at 2am last night. Called them this morning to give them a good piece of my mind.

Really awesome local CAG nearby offered to let me have one of his extra Wii U Deluxe preorders. Went to Wal-Mart at 9pm to get in line, first people there. Ended up getting one and letting fellow CAG know I now wasn't in need.

Local Wal-Mart only had 28 TOTAL (including preorders). 18 of them were for preorders, so they ended up with 10 extras for sell. All deluxe, NO 8GB. Also, no NSMB. :(

Actually I'm not sure what is going on with this Nintendoland update. It has been going for ten or fifteen minutes. I wonder if it is running the main update again for some reason...

It's getting there now. I hope every game doesn't have to update...

Anybody else have a white screen with the Wii U logo on the bottom right? It's after the update installs. This is strange... It is playing a tune, and has been like this for at least 20 minutes.

not good hearing all these lock up issues already after the update. Yet another reason why im not a fan of buying electronics on launch.

as a early adapter to any electronics you go in knowing their will be some annoying bugs. But that is the fun of it.
