    Default Wii U 5 GB Firmware Update Warning

    There is a day-one 5 GB firmware update for all Wii U owners. The update can take up to four to five hours to download depending on your internet connection, and even worse it takes about another half an hour to install.

    The update includes features which are essential to your Wii U experience, such as Wii data transfer, access to online features, and much more. In other words, you'll have a half-baked console until the update is installed.

    Once the update begins there is no stopping it, you will brick your console if you attempt to abort the installation process. Just a heads up, as other users have already suffered this fate. So make sure to run this overnight, and pray your power doesn't go out during the installation.

    Looks like I'll have to leave it on all night while charging to update. Hopefully there's an option like the PS3 to download updates to PC and transfer via HDD.

    Internet speeds vary.

    I expect mine to take 2 hours when I get on December 4th (Europe gets it 2 weeks)

    Damm Good luck though. i never knew it was a 5 gb update. when i heard tipped out say that. i automatic think about the white wii-u with 8gb. 8gb is a little bit for me, so i got the black one.

    That's why you should wait until a few months after release to buy one when this stuff is already straightened out and installed on the consoles and the games are cheaper.
