i like how everyone with a wii-u console is completely unphased by this. i will allow the update like i allow updates on everything else i own and continue to enjoy it.

and yes the wii was rampant with cheaters online so i'm glad they are addressing these kinds of things with the wii-u. there will always be people who work around the system but at least they're doing something about it.

+1 satisfied wii-u owner.

Nintendo could literally make me agree to having a brick dropped on my head and I wouldn't care. I'm still buying a Wii U + Bayonetta 2 on the 24th.

You only bought the right to have it on your property - we still own it. - Nintendo

Play the games you loved as a child and forget their nonsense. Emulators or old consoles. The local pawn shop here goes for turn over so I grab consoles and games at first chance (and it's cheap).

While technically I agree he's right, I can't sympathize. When you purchase a console you are walking into the closed software ecosystem of Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, ect.

So yeah, big thumbs down for forcing to accept... There are way better solutions to it. As I said, just stripping away the online functionality would be enough.

Disappointed. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

This. When Sony changes the EULA and you don't agree to it, they just block you from signing into PSN until you agree. Bricking the console is just stupid and I'm sure illegal as well.

It's as if Nintendo want to die.

How is anything said in the title a lie? You can argue what "bricked" means, but this is basically a bricked console as it can not be used without accepting the EULA.

Hating Nintendo is a "cool" thing to do nowdays.
I especially love people claiming they hold the industry back when most of the time nintendo sits by the sidelines making cash money and the other consoles fighting over the grahpics.

*Waits for Bayonetta 2 to arrive this week* You know, a game that would not exists without Nintendo.
