    Hello everyone!, I have a Black Wii U, this Wii U it scratches easier than the Wii U White, so I need some tips how to remove these scratches, please.

    Well, I searched on google and in some posts I read that I can remove the scratches using furniture polish and then putting some on the console and pass the finger covering the whole, then remove it with paper.

    Well, thanks for seeing my problem!

    I don't think mine is scratched yet, but OH THE FINGERPRINTS

    ATTN electronics makers, stop with the glossy stuff. Especially black glossy.

    Anyway, I'd be careful with polish and stuff, try on a small out sight area first. And make sure it doesn't drip through any cracks/vents.

    Yeah, the marks are in the top of the console, so I have to polish it carefully? not know if I can put something else to remove those scratches, are very ugly :(

    You could go to Autozone and go to their car WAX section. There you will find many color car waxes that should blend the scratches right out of the Wii U. If it works on car paint, it should work on the glossy plastic as well. Just be careful not to get anything that has an acetone base or the like that would melt the plastic.

    My Black Wii U was scratched on Day 2. You know how that happened? I sat the Game Pad on it overnight.

    I can confirm from first hand experience that the two console stands/feet that come with the Deluxe black model do leave scratchs when put on/taken off.

    I wish we could get a matte finish console again, like GameCube, or even the recent Wii Mini.

    What I would do is go to any ol store that sells cleaning supplies and buy steel wool.
