    Does anyone know if Wii U refurbished that Nintendo Store are selling are updated in firmwares? Or are they below there 5.5.2?

    As I was thinking of maybe buying one for emulation purposes but not if it's updated of course...thanks

    Emulation on the Wii U is not great, just go with something else

    Really? As I have the Nvidia Shield for that but I'm sure the WiiU would be better in playing the Wii U+Wii+Gc games than the Shield (but not PS1). I'm looking for like a all in one console (Nes to Wiiu games)..

    Well, if it is 5.5.2 there is an exploit on its way involving cruncyroll:)

    Yes, it is better than the shield playing WiiU/Wii/GC games but thats not emulation,because they run natively.
    Nes i'm sure that will be perfect.
    And if there's not and exploit for 5.5.2, you could hack the vWii and play Wii, gamcube games and Nes

    Most likely they were all refurbished ages ago (Nintendo themselves was "dumping" them for 200 dollars on eBay of all places, still it's not impossible to get them for less from a seller willing to check the version or like I did an almost-launch model that Gamestop took out of the box to put it on shelves on which it stayed for 4+ years)

    Remember that updating is actual work to do
