    To be fair, it took me about 4 minutes to download a 30mb patch for the PS Store on sunday over a 100mb connection. Nintendo dont have the monopoly on shit servers, unfortunately.

    Always found all of them to have their bad times. The only platform which pretty much never lets me down is steam.

    My PS3 launch day update took all day. I was not impressed having taken the day off.

    @Frogofdoom careful mate, you'll be called all kinds of fanboy claiming such facts in a Nintendo thread ;-)

    :eek: really? I remember getting mine delivered at 10am from Amazon, plugging it in, updating and then buying Tekken and some silly car stunt game thing by lunch.

    Difficult to be a fanboy when i own all the consoles though as well as a pc. Im just using my wii more than the other 2 at the moment so i talk about it more. My 360 takes forever to start due to the amount of games on it but oddly enough i dont often see many complain about it. My ps3 always starts up ok though i just hate the pad for it so i only ever use it for exclusives i want and the ps+ freebies.

    Every one of my consoles has a 'quirk'
    That's why it's handy to have all three!

    I'm still on the fence about PC...

    Just as an aside, I still cant believe that im complaining that a 30mb file took 4 minutes, given that I used to download 500k porn files over dial up and then join them with mpeg scissors.

    I wonder if I'll need to do 2 updates then, or if they'll make it one slightly larger one for new owners? Guess I'l find out today or tomorrow.

    Can anyone who actually reads ONM clue me in on what the "world exclusive" scoop about a Resident Evil game on Wii U was this month? Anything worth getting excited about (i.e a new game), or just a port of 6 or something?

    No doubt it was announcing there WAS one in development, but now there isn't. As seems the vogue for devs to report these days.

    @darkmorgado I don't read it, but i'm guessing it's about Revelations rather than a completely new game. They were the first magazine to reveal the Revelations port, if I remember correctly.

    As for these Mario games, the last Nintendo Direct for Wii U mentioned a new 3D Mario and Mario Kart Wii U would be playable at E3. Whether or not we see them this year is another matter. If we do, hopefully the quality of these games hasn't been sacrificed.

    @darkmorgado - Yeah it is a Revelations port for the Wii. Looks promising as I thought it was a decent 3DS game tbh.

    Going back to the Wii U, I know the sales have not been amazing but are we guilty of comparing them to the Wii sales? Lets be honest that flew like shit off a shovel and I don't think a console will ever reach those heights again. The 360 sold well at launch but this was before the world turned to shit and people had money. The PS3 started piss poor and picked up later so it really is not all bad. The Wii U has launched at a tough time when people have very little cash, maybe it has done as well as can be expected against the 360, PS3 & even the Wii with years of games behind them and are now at competitive prices dropping all the time. I am pretty sure when the PS4 & new Xbox launch you will see nothing like the previous sales early on they have met and by that time the Wii U will be a year old and should, all going well, have a pretty decent games range and be around 80 cheaper.... I also think in many ways relating to previous posts the Wii U has an advantage in the sense that it is very much just a games console, the PS4 & Xbox are clearly going down very different roads, as earlier posts have highlighted almost going into PC territory with consoles linked to social websites etc where as Nintendo, whether you like it or not have kept things very simple and had essentially made just a games console.

    Time will tell!!!

    Mario Kart Wii U has already been shown in some form IMO.
    Just check out the arcade version just released in Japan -
    seems a perfect fit for the gamepad

    Yeah fair point, I suppose what I am getting it as I don't think Nintendo are basing their whole console around this, games generally come first and you can choose to get involved in that side of things where as the others are looking for something very different and are building their machines around the social network scene.

    Although I know it's been answered, I should just clarify that there's definitely nothing really exclusive in it except a couple of pictures that hadn't been shown anywhere else. The article about it isn't that bad given it also has a series retrospective, but you're not missing anything.

    I think you are all forgetting how long it took for the 360 to get into the position it has. It was coming in from the Xbox, which was about as popular as the Gamecube, so it did not fly out of the gate, despite what your memory tells you. Some official at Microsoft said the first to 10 million wins and then the Wii got there around the exact same moment the 360 did, which meant it took roughly a year and a half to sell the first 10 million and it got outsold in less than a year by the Wii. The PS3, as you said, is also a good example, as it had some woeful sales for quite a while before things got better.

    So if you were to compare the Wii U to the 360, its actually selling a little bit better than that did in the same period thus far. Which means that the future is full of possibilities for it. For instance, the Vita showed the first signs of turning itself around this and last week. It's estimated that around 80,000 could have been sold (we won't know for certain until tomorrow) and it might have outsold the 3DS for the first time (seeing as how the 3DS is hovering around 80,000, its iffy).

    It was very difficult to get 360's at launch though. I was quite lucky in getting one but they were a nightmare to find.

    Was it 'Calling All Cars!' by any chance?

    ... think I played that on multi-player round my friends a couple of weeks after he purchased the PlayStation 3 on the first day. Quite good fun actually!

    This one was a 3D buggy thing.

    There was a lot more buzz for the 360. The graphical leap was the selling point, rather than it's games. I didn't pick one up at launch, but having been able to play on it quite extensively at a friends house, I didn't feel bad to be missing out. He bought Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo, which bored the pants off me. PGR3 was awesome, but it wasn't until the 360 version of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat that I became envious.

    360's were a nightmare to get, I wanted one so bad I got one on Ebay from someone who had pre-ordered one and paid something like 500 for it. I just wanted one at any cost. Those days are long gone.

    One thing that Microsoft have a clear advantage over Nintendo is from the marketing point of view. You couldn't have a shit without seeing someone offering the 360, add that to the limited stock and Microsoft were on to a winner!!
