Posted on Saturday, November 17 @ 22:01:10 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

Forums are flooded with people patiently waiting for the download to complete. Those with slower bandwidth speeds are really in a sore spot with the update taking an entire night.

If you plan to get a Wii U today, make sure you have some popcorn ready.
