Wii U owners reporting freezing issues

Yeah, already.

Posted By | On 19th, Nov. 2012

The Wii U, Nintendo’s new home console, has been out in the market a day now, but people who’ve bought the system have started reporting errors already.

Several users over at the Nintendo tech support forums have started reporting freezing issues- their Wii U GamePads are freezing.

Reportedly, the GamePad controllers are freezing during usage of the Miiverse, the internet browser, while accessing menus and while playing games. So basically, everything. The only way to come over these freezes is to shut down the controller and turn it on again.

The controller’s functionalities seem to be working well, though.

In several instances, the system itself is hanging up, and there’s no way to work around this issue but to unplug it from its power source, since it fails to respond to the power button during these freezes.

Users are saying that when they contacted Nintendo support, they were told that they would either have to wait for the patch or send in the GamePad for repairs, which could take upward of a week.

Yikes, sucks to be them. Have you encountered any such issues? Tell us in your comments below.
