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.


System defining games (over 70 on metacritic) not on the other. IMO these are the system sellers that matter. No amount of PS4 selling can take this away.

2013: Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct > Killzone Shadowfall

2014: Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Forza Horizon 2, Master Chief Collection > Infamous SF, Drive Club, Little Big Planet 3, Last of Us (IMO lacking in content compared to MCC).

2015: Rare Replay, Gears Ultimate, Forza Motorsport 6, Halo 5 > Bloodborne, Nathan Drake Collection, God of War 3 Remastered

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!

Please Help me! Explain why you don't like mobile gaming!

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

Signatures are for LOSERS.

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

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