Yesterday, the Wii U officially launched in North America. According to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, there have been absolutely no problems and that everyone is enjoying the system to critical acclaim.
“There have been no complaints whatsoever,” says Iwata as he speaks to press in Japan, “players in America have enjoyed every single aspect of the Wii U from the operating system to the games.”
The first question he took from the press asked what game was most well received. Iwata’s response was short as he simply said, “All of them.” Further elaboration was not asked for by the press.
He continued to take questions for 30 minutes and answered every single one of them in complete positivity. For example, when Iwata was asked what is currently the biggest problem with the Wii U, he replied, “there is nothing that can be improved. Everything is working as expected.”
Near the end of the conference, a reporter notified Iwata that there have actually been a huge deluge of complaints about nearly every single aspect about the Wii U from the online features, the account system, the amount of updates, the games, the internal components, the battery life, and more. Iwata merely said that “those complaints are not true” as he exited the press release.
Meanwhile, over 60 percent of people who purchased a Wii U in North America have returned them according to retailers.
