So far, I've had the Wii U freeze on me twice during Nintendo Land. No other games have freezing issues. What about you guys?

You might want to fix your title :P

As for Nintendo Land, I have it but havent tried it out yet.

I follow a couple people on twitter who litterally tweet about everything, and they tweeted quite abit about Nintendo Land and they havent complained about the game freezing. So idk, I'll get back to you when I've tried it out.

I just posted this in another thread but I my console froze once because I was too far away with the gamepad and the console and gamepad lost connection. Then on NSMBU it froze on me too.

Interesting. Haven't had that happen to me yet. When the controller lost signal, it just waited until I got close again.

Well, I kept walking around my house trying to find it's range limits so that is probably why. It disconnected several times while I was experimenting heh lol. I should have just went back into my room instead of pushing it.

I had it freeze twice on me. 1 time on Miiverse. Other time was...I forget? Maybe it was only once? Either way it seems fine now. Nintendo just needs another update that will patch stuff. It takes awhile to get a new system running flawlessly.

EDIT: Nintendoland seems to be causing freezing for quite a few people. Nintendo needs an update. Should assume we will get one by the end of the week I hope.

Have two freezes already both on nintendo Land. They where both at least 3 hours after I started playing. Of course this could be only luck. Hope to hear there is a patch because my warranty only applies for US and Canada and I live in Mexico, stupid policies

Five times for me on of Wii U, twice on the other if I remember correctly.

I am back to playing other machines until a patch.

Luckily, I didn't buy any multiplats for my Wii U's, and even better the Wii U only comes out when friends are over since my two games are 1st party Nintendo made couch cooperation multiplayer games (NSMU & Nintendoland).

Play the Wii U for a week. I'm seeing in this thread people that said the same thing last week to me. They are now talking of Freezing today.

Maybe you'll get lucky who knows, however these things take time to manifest.

Perhaps next month you can make this thread and be converted, and some newer poster who bought a Wii U in that future timeline then will tell you he never had no freezes in his two days of ownership.

I wonder what you'd post. :P

My girlfriend and I were playing Nintendoland all day when we first got it without any issue. Now it's starting to freeze all the time making it unplayable. Don't know what's the issue is but a number of people also seems to have this problem. There appears to be some sort of workarounds but so far none of them work for me yet. No freezing on Mario Wii U though.

Yeah, my first few days were trouble free as well.
