Faulty Wii U launch systems

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Faulty Wii U launch systems

According to some on the internet that is pretty much a %100 fail rate. Preorder cancelled..... oh... nevermind.

 

Nintendo hardware usually lasts forever... still have original nes, snes, cube, virtual boy and they all still work.

For some reason I couldn't use the pad to turn on the console every fifth time or so. Had to do it manually, or with a Wiimote. Thought the pad was faulty but I was to lazy to do something about it. Since last update I've had no issues though, so I guess it was just a software problem. Gotta love when your system repairs itself!

Haven't had any other issues apart from Duck Tales crashing two times.

Is Duck Tales crashing anytime you look at some of the Leaderboard stats?  Or is that just me?


I don't remember what level it was, only that it crashed right after I had finished a level and before the saving process. Second time was a few seconds in on the Transylvania stage. The audio got all messed up and the game sounded like a hundred harpies having sex or something, and then it just stopped responding.

Yeah I've had those happen (3 times total, once on an Extreme run, the rage THE RAGE)

Have you had any looking at the leaderboards sometimes tho?

I had bad luck as well, my console was sent in early Sept. due to the blinking power red light, either before booting up or after shutting down. Turned out the whole cpu needed to be replaced, so I got sent a new one. All my save data was gone...imagine I had over 20 games (eshop, retail, vc)!

No, but I've barely looked at it.



Mine is first day aswell. Froze a few times at first - mostly because of ZombiU.
But after that, worked without problems!

Bought mine Day-1, works flawless ever since :D



didn't have any freezes since the last update tbh. Works perfectly fine.



I haven't had any problems with mines so far. But i have only owned the system for about a month. I don't remember the system ever freezing yet. One thing I love about Nintendo is that you know the stuff that they make is made to last.



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

I hear VGChartz Alumni "I Like Bacon" and his sister "Nintendo Fan Girl" had a broken Wii U. They had to send it in for repairs.



I had some fun with my launch day Wii U.

Put everything together, turned it on, and got the BBLoD (Blinking Blue Light of Death).

Went back to GameStop and switched it out for another one (they had one extra) and it's worked like a champ ever since.
