Iwata Apologizes For Wii U Launch Issues

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata acknowledged and apologized to Wii U fans for the console’s launch issues and for forcing players to download a huge system update to be able to access network features on launch day.

"Personally I think that users should be able to use all the functions of a console video game machine as soon as they open the box," he said. "So I feel very sorry for the fact that purchasers of Wii U have to experience a network update which takes such a long time, and that there are the services which were not available at the hardware's launch."

An apology is always nice, but it is interesting to note that Iwata had the power to prevent that from happening in the first place.

Problem is...

The problem is that not everyone has access to broadband; not everyone has access to internet. As much as we would like to believe this is the case for everyone everywhere...it is not! Believe it or not (it really is your right) but there are people out there that can afford hardware but not monthly re-occuring costs like 'internet'. So stop thinking that everyone has it like you and those around you. Basically, you pay the full price...you are "supposed" to get what you paid for...the full package.
