During the start of tonight’s Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata briefly spoke a bit about issues concerning the Wii U. Even with the latest firmware update, users have still been complaining about system update and program start loading times. Good news: both of these issues will be addressed, Iwata said.

The Nintendo president also talked about Wii U stock availability in Japan. Iwata apologized for shortages surrounding the Wii U Premium Set, but it sounds like consumers will simply need to deal with the situation for now and wait for additional units to arrive.

    So obviously they are still going to claim that the Wii U is a worldwide sensation…When it honestly IS NOT…..It’s not selling as well as they would like to boast…You couldn’t find the Wii everyone wanted one most stores aren’t even selling out…I see at least 5 of BOTH at target constantly

      Where did they state it was a worldwide sensation? It’s gonna be an insanely hot product in japan and do okay in the rest of the world. Just like 3ds.
