The Wii U launched in America over the weekend and in doing so managed to force people on to Twitter to complain about the huge mandatory update.
According to many the compulsory 1.5GB firmware update will take around four hours to complete, which isn't ideal when you are desperate to play your brand new console.
So what is the update all about? Well, according to reports the update adds online features, Miiverse and allows users to transfer data from a Wii to the Wii U.
One warning that should be heeded is that you shouldn't turn your console off during the update. It seems some people did this due to thinking it had frozen, which resulted in the console bricking completely. You have been warned.
Wii U launches in the UK on November 30.
We've been told the update is 1.5 GB and not 5GB as originally reported. This should at least leave those who buy the basic machine some HDD space.
