    Breaking news, you will need an internet connection to use online features.
    On a slightly more interesting note, this confirms that all of the above functions will in fact be available at launch. The 3DS did not have such a convenience.

    Well, I would hope the main features of the OS that Nintendo has spent months making a big deal about would be available day one. It's nice to see it confirmed however.

    Most consoles nowadays get a day one update anyway so no big issue.

    Glad that they won't be keeping the console half-functional at launch like the 3DS though.

    Interesting, it makes you wonder when the 3DS miiverse update will be available.

    What a shock!
    The DSi had several launch-day firmware updates, and IIRC the Wii had one too.

    I never bothered to look this up, so quickly, someone answer: Does the WiiU have a ethernet port or is it just WiFi? God I hope it has an ethernet port.

    Just wifi, with support for USB modems.

    Deal with it or don't buy one.

    Nope, you'll have to wait and buy an adapter if it does come out.
    EDIT: Dammit Midna, you :ninja:'d me...

    The Wii U is for casuals who can play shitty online games that can have a bagillion seconds of lag.

    It's not designed for real gamers who play real games with real internet connections.

    The Wii didn't have an ethernet port either, but had a USB adapter with such a port on it. I wonder if that adapter would work on the Wii U...

    Nintendo has no valid excuse for leaving out a port that even fucking DVD players have. Not everyone has an amazing Wi-Fi setup

    Oh and the Wii had shit online so don't even, Ninty fanboys.

    Fixed that for you.



    Either be more creative with your trolling or GTFO.
