    Turned on my Wii U to play Bayonetta 2 to find that the system failed to download a system update due to supposed server congestion. Failed when I tried to update through System Settings as well. I'm running the latest 5.3.0 update, by the way. eShop has also been down for most of today.

    So I guess a update is happening pretty soon?

    5.3.0 E/U/J is indeed the most recent though I don't see why they'd need to make another update unless they're going to add a new feature to it.

    i'd say the update is to fix this

    so be warned if you updated from the disc!

    It says that error comes up if you attempt to play for glory mode. People who updated via disc are probably offline so they can do a kernel exploit later

    Why would you want to be on 5.3.0? The kernel exploit is only available on 5.2.0 and under

    Well, gonna be a while before the exploit works on 5.3.0 ROFL. Looks like you're shit outta luck for quite some time :creep: They've been tight-lipped for a very good reason, they don't want Ninty to know the nitty gritty about it, so they can't patch it, but now, you're screwed. C'est la vie.
    Warning after warning has been posted on the hacking threads repeatedly, yet, you deliberately chose to update. Well, it's your funeral :rolleyes:

    Methinks he doesn't give a tin shit about it. As Reggie said at E3:"Not my problem: XD

    Wrong. Smash has 5.2.0, not 5.3.0, but thank you for spreading misinformation. And yes, I am enjoying Smash on 5.2.0. I'm still safe, so there. Trolololo.
