News Desk Masthead - Iwata

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has acknowledged the need for improvement in the usage speed of the Wii U OS.

In an interview with Japanese publication Nikkei, Iwata said that they are aware of customer dissatisfaction with the Wii U OS’s sluggishness. The Nintendo president added that they are currently investigating this issue. However, no timetable was released as to when this would occur.

What say you? Is the slow Wii U OS speed a problem in your regular use of the system?

    Maybe it’s my imagination but (current) Wii U feels pretty fast to me. Popping into Miiverse, the eShop, or the web browser is really smooth compared to other consoles, or Wii U at launch. If further improvements can be made, great!

    Much more importantly than speed, I’d love to see some 3DS features show up on Wii U, especially folders and note-scribbling.

    Sony recently took the PS3’s store from a couple-of-seconds load to a minute or more. Popping in for a few demo downloads went from a quick, remote-compatible action to a huge, clumsy inconvenience. It’s nice to know that Nintendo actually cares about the user experience and wants to improve it.

      It never seemed too slow; accessing the browser, MiiVerse, etc., during a game actually seems to take less time; at least going back to the game is faster than going back to the home menu.
      It doesn’t affect me, that much, but it can be annoying. It would be a nice update! I would also like to be able to draw my own backgrounds for the home menu… or add screenshots. That would be cool.
