Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U has no ethernet port

Shane Satterfield(Gametrailers Editor-in-chief) has confirmed that the Wii U has no ethernet port. This means the only way to get online on a Wii U is through wi-fi or by purchasing some sort of dongle.

Hehe....."dongle". Always liked that word.


Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

X1: Titanfall, COD: AW.    PS4: Watch Dogs, Destiny

Xbox E3 Exclusives: Halo MCC, Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Dance Central Spotlight

If you have an Ethernet adapter for Wii, it will work with the Wii U. I still have mine.

No sweat, it's all good!

I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

not a big deal and not surprising

You put the most used option (wi-fi) as a last resourse ("the only!") option, lol.

Always preferred that thing called wifi's.

Wires are important, yo

If you disagree, copy + paste this into your signature.

I would consider this move as a stupid one by nintendo.
