    So are any of the WiiU sets in the wild already updated to the latest firmware or do they require a manual update which I will be buying.

    And is there downgrade methods or are they expected to find any?

    For the first question, I don't have an answer (I have an idea but I can have a false answer).

    For the second, you need to buy a game with the 5.3.2 because you can't make the update online (or this upgrade was 5.5) and you couldn't downgrade after this.

    For the first question, I'm not sure. I think most Wii Us in the wild are still on 5.3.2 or below, but recent bundles are likely on higher firmware.

    There's a promised kernel exploit for both 5.4.0 and 5.5.0 which will be released once the team is ready to. Which won't necessarily make downgrading possible, but you won't need to.

    From what I've seen, it looks like a lot of the digital bundles are 5.4.0 now (no released exploit/hacks yet), but the bundles with physical discs seem to be fine for now (under 5.3.2. You'd then need to purchase Splatoon or Mario Party 10 to get to 5.3.2). Try one of the older bundles with the physical discs to be on the safer side.

    To be on its purchase , it seems clear that all the old pack with games are good (<5.3) ... ( zelda, mario kart ... )
     

  6. this one comes with 3.1.0 (i purchased it myself) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-32GB-Premium-Pack-Mario/dp/B00E4LGGY0
    you can buy splatoon for about £15 second hand if you wish to upgrade to 5.3.2 if you wish.
