    On occasion, my Wii U will freeze up and need to be unplugged and replugged. It's happened a few times during Darksiders II, some general use of the system and, today when loading NSMBU it just stuck on the loading screen playing the music. Holding the power button does nothing, unlike on the original Wii, you've got to yank the cable out.

    So, is this just teething issues with the system that may be fixed in a firmware update or should I be concerned?

    It id happened to me once. But I tried to reproduce it witout luck. If you can make it hang at the exact same place everytime, call Nintendo.

    make sure it is getting PLENTY of ventilation and not sitting on anything that gets warm easily , I had mine sitting on top of my DVR and it kept doing that.. moved it and i haven't had that problem since
