    Anything I need to know before I transfer all my Wii content to the Wii U?
    Only that you should prepare yourself for the greatest data transfer experience of all time :D
    Do you need all the games you want to transfer on your Wii at the time? I have some VC games that I couldn't fit on there, so I've deleted them for now (sin and Punishment). Will it recognise that they've been there and transfer those too?

    You can download any previous eshop purchases once the Wii U has been setup, no need to transfer everything at once.

    @evilashchris Yes, it recognises and transfers all licenses, even those of the channels that have been deleted. I redownloaded two Bit Trip games on the Wii U I had no room for on the Wii.

    The only game that didn't get transfered in my case was Lost Winds because that seems to be incompatible with the Wii mode on the Wii U. Apparanetly they're working on an update.

    I do like the idea of chris being the coolest Wii U owner.

    Bit too late for that, I already own a Wii U ;)

    I should make it clear I'm under no illusion that I'm actually cool in any way.

    One more thing about the transfer: Your remaining points on your Wii eShop account get transfered too.

    Why Nintendo wants you to have two separate eShop accounts for Wii and Wii U is another question though. You can't use your Wii points on Wii U stuff.

    I've got 1400 points left on the Wii account now. Any WiiWare suggestions? I've already got the two Lost Winds, two Bit Trips, World of Goo and MotoHeroz. I'm not too keen on Virtual Console stuff.

    Well, the latest update did absolutely nothing to solve the issues I'm having with this piece of garbage.

    Haven't we already address that, or was that someone else Pro? There was someone who's issues were clearly those of a faulty console. Probably someone else though, afraid I can't remember because I have a memory like the animal I can't remember with the shoddy memory. I hope whoever it was got it sorted.

    Although that was most likely a different person, you should still get yours sent back if you're still having issues. That's what guarantees are for, after all :)

    Open the casing with a screwdriver, find the bits that run Mario, then sledgehammer the rest. I assume they'll be labelled "Mario Capacitors" or something.

    Bit violent there! Although considering it, you'll still be able to play Mario, so that plan might work.

    http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/10/nintendo_considering_cross_buy_eshop_purchases_but_doesnt_have_anything_to_announce_yet

    This is one of the more innovative excuses for ripping off consumers I've heard in a while.
    Of course it's hard to get demand from developers for cross buy when there aren't any developers working on the Wii U to begin with.

    Could someone check something for me?

    When in game, hit HOME and go to browser then try to upload the image somewhere (dropbox etc).

    Note the filename.

    Do it again.

    Is the filename the same?

    I think mine is bugged, as the filename is always the same so if I upload multiple screenshots to dropbox, there is only one image there because it overwrites it each time.

    My filename for every screengrab is stuck on WiiU_screenshot_TV_01436.jpg

    :D

    I just watched the new Mario Trailer from the Nintendo Direct on the Wii U and it really does look fantastic, great to see it in high quality...

    I was referring to the bug ;-)

    Either way I now think when the wii U drops below 150 I may get one at some point next year. Well if it drops.

    Depends on if some of the holiday games come good and if bayonetta 2 is any use

    Considering what I paid for the Xbox 360 and PS3 at launch; the 300 I paid for a Wii U represents good value for money, in my opinion.

    If you feel you have value for your purchase price really that is all that matters but many would argue that the wii u hardware is very weak and is performing at approximately current gen level which makes it poor value in hardware terms. It's likely even that the ps3 and xbox 360 models with hard drives actually cost more to make. Didn't stop me buying a wii u at launch though and still a brilliant console. I do feel a lot of Nintendo's current problems would have been avoided if the wii u spec had been set a little bit higher or the launch pricing had been more realistic or even a combination of the two.
