I guess the letters need to be flashing and playing music to get people attention.

I read on Zelda Informer that it doesn't have a warning. It just says it needs an update and "this could take awhile" lol. Don't know if that's true however.

just looked at a vid on youtube to see what the screen looks like when updating and it just says downloading update, the video did not show the start so might show something saying dont turn of etc. so sure some people may think they can just shut it of.
but lets get real, people will be able to RMA the thing without any issue and get an replacement.

What takes the wii u so long to update? We're talking about hours here.

Phones takes 2 mind to flash 1gb roms, windows take like 10 to 15 mins to install.

If it's a 5gb update, maybe download it to the sd card, verify the update, then let it flash away.

But then again, it's Nintendo. Not a good start either way.

It still shouldn't hard-brick the system. There should always be backup firmware available in the case of a failed flash. Newer MOBOs have this, there's no excuse for a console not to in next gen. Even most phones have the ability to recover from a bad flash.

No. Wii U comes without any Firmware or Software installed or stored anywhere on the system. Would have been nice if they allowed to do the update using a USB stick like PS3.

At an absolute minimum, it must have firmware that can download and install the "full" firmware.

Well, if the console actually installs the update while it is downloading then it's Nintendo's fault. If people don't have anything to do while it updates (eat, watch tv, browse the interwebz) then it is their fault
