I was very interested in playing ZombiU in case I ever picked up one of these consoles, but IGN says that the game isn't so good and gave it a mere 6.3 review. Now, some other sites have given it better but I was hoping for rave reviews.

What the shit, are people seriously mad that turning off the console during the update bricks it? Isn't it common fucking sense to not do that?

Saw IGN's score and was a little upset because the game looked cool. Then I watched Giant Bomb's Quick Look and I thought it looked really fun. I want a Wii U mostly for this game at the moment./

Did you post quickly, seemlessly, and with no lag, slowdown, or crashes?

The browser on PS3 is shit, almost unusable. It suffers from the above mentioned problems, same with the Xbox I hear, so im skeptical on a good browser for consoles.

Any comments on multiplayer? Servers working okay? Connectivity issues? Joining matches working out? Er, well are even any multiplayer games out yet?

I actually like it quite a lot, and that is saying quite a bit since the only comparable browser would be my computer. It really is responsive, has flash and stuff, and the touchscreen is really accurate.

Any comments on multiplayer? Servers working okay? Connectivity issues? Joining matches working out? Er, well are even any multiplayer games out yet?

Miiverse was being bombarded like crazy yesterday, but it works fine right now. Posted a few comments directly from Miiverse and one from Mario U. Really liking the online here.

ALSO, ADD YOUR DAMN NINTENDO IDS YOU PEOPLE.

Hmmm... it sounds better than I had anticipated, and that from someone who bought a Gamecube and Wii on launch day, but wasn't expecting much from the Wii U.

Saying that I don't have the time or money to consider it any time soon. Once the next gen consoles for the other big players come around, no doubt for extortionate money, and the Wii U inevitabley drops in price, I might consider it. £300 for a console is way too steep, but should it fall to around £200 it might be worth picking up.

Plus there will come a point when a massive first party title appears (Zelda/Smash Bros/Metroid) that I will want to play. I'll have to at least consider it then.

it is a god game, the only downside I've seen from game play is that you could just go through the game with a cricket bat

The server is pretty good. I don't know where you are getting that from. Miiverse is surprisingly amazing. It's fun having people walk by you with messages about levels in Mario, or minigames in Nintendoland. You really have to experience it to really appreciate how subtle Nintendo's approach to community is.

How does the multiplayer on this work? Is it as good as Xbox LIVE or is it shit like the original Wii? One of the main reasons I want one if for the 2D platformers I know will come and the Virtual Console. I'm on that nostalgia ish.

I don't have an online game, but any Miiverse posts upload very quickly, the browser is fast, and holy crap is Netflix fast! All the content from the 3DS and Wii shops are on there (although the 3DS stuff is just there for the sake of being there).

By the way, I went through the sad process of transferring my Wii data to my Wii U. I had to set up my Wii on another T.V and mess around with the shop channel to download a transfer channel, and find a good SD card, but my Wii is now empty.

I was treated to a wonderful animation of Pikmin physically picking my save files and blasting off to planet Wii U. Five years of memories right there, almost a third of my life.

I'm having a blast with it. Despite getting ZombiU and New super mario bros today I still can't put this game down. Lot's of content. Trying to get all the platinum trophies is a real challenge and getting all the items/juke box songs are going to take a good while by the looks of it.

If you have friends/siblings who will play the multiplayer attractions with you consistently it is just that much better. I wish I could say the same for myself but my bros get sick of having FUN with it after an hour and go back to play their stupid league of legends game. That game makes me angry to no end.

IGN has said that Nintendo Land is the most compelling game available at launch which is surprising to me, Isn't it just a mini-game collection like Wii sports? Whenever the new Legend of Zelda and Metroid game comes out for this thing I am picking it up.

If they do happen to make a new Super Mario Galaxy or similar to the console, I can imagine it will be the prettiest looking Mario game yet. Also, it would be cool if we can design our own Mario levels at some point...

Not a handheld?

And I mean, there are a ton of handheld wannabes, like the psp, psvita, there's a new version of the Nintendo DS every 2 years, and so on, this looks like just another device that will never live up to it's claims, and I'm getting really weirded out at all the hype over it.

What color is it?

And if you got the black one, how good is that Nintendoland game?
