[QUOTE=cvxfreak;44326228][B]Parental Controls[/B]

- Nintendo realizes that some parents may fear that their children may use the Wii U's internet functionality without permission. Wii U has Parental Controls.
- Can restrict content based on user age, CERO (Japan ESRB) rating, internet functionality, internet browser, e-Shop spending, Miiverse functionality, friend registrations, videos, data management, internet settings
- Wii U keyboard input can save user input habits and predictive input in a specific database that depends on the game and user. Wii U does not save input data that you don't want other users to know into the database.
- Miiverse settings can be turned on/off depending on the save profiles per game.

[B]USB Data Storage[/B]

- 8GB = 7.2GB, 32GB = 29GB in terms of actual save data. Wii U uses around 4.2GB when using the system for the first time.
- NSMBU is ~2GB, Nintendo Land is ~3.2GB. So, both won't fit into the Basic set at the same time.
- Wii U lets you put data onto a connected USB media drive.
- One USB drive at a time only.
- Cannot disconnect the external drive while plugged into the Wii U and receiving power.
- You can use general drives.
- In terms of powering the HDD while connecting to the Wii U, if you do not use a Y Cable Type drive (2 USB cables), then Nintendo cannot guarantee it will work properly.
- Nintendo can guarantee functionality if the HDD plugs into a power outlet.
- No games on USB Flash Memory due to games not running properly all the time (whatever this means...)
- Wii U will read up to 2TB only for external hard drives
- In Data Management, you must format the connected media drive. Note that this means you cannot use the drive with a PC.
- You can move data from internal Wii U storage to external USB media in Data Management and vice versa. Data on both internal and external media will appear in the menu.
- At launch, only 1 USB hard drive can be connected, but through a future update, more than 1 will be possible and you will be able to move data between them freely.
- SD Cards can hold PC data, Wii Virtual Console, Wii Ware, and Wii save data, but cannot be used to save Wii U game save data.

[B]Backwards Compatibility[/B]

- Wii games, Virtual Console, Wii Ware stuff cannot be played using the GamePad screen, but only on the TV in Wii Mode
- Iwata: "We understand that there are people who were looking forward to playing Wii games, Virtual Console games, and so forth on the GamePad, but unfortunately we cannot accommodate those users' expectations."
- There are plans for a Wii U Virtual Console that WILL be compatible with the Wii U GamePad. Please look forward to it in the future.

[B]Nintendo Network Premium[/B]

iwata, you magnificent b*****d

EatChildren 11-14-2012 12:10 PM

It's about data storage, ie USB management.

Zulithe 11-14-2012 12:10 PM

Wow, it's like Christmas this week with all the new stuff.

Where is cheese to translate!

FearMyWrench 11-14-2012 12:11 PM

I see we've cut down the announce time to... after it's been uploaded.

Well done Nintendo.

Wait what. That's not how this is supposed to work!

Tenki 11-14-2012 12:12 PM

So Wii Virtual Console = NO gamepad support, and Wii U Virtual Console = gamepad support, right?

Kouriozan 11-14-2012 12:12 PM

I liked how he explained data storage x)

Why would you do that? 11-14-2012 12:12 PM

Oh, it's a mini one, not a live streaming one? Makes sense as to why they didn't announce the release of the video.

metalslimer 11-14-2012 12:13 PM

Interesting explanation method lol.

neoanarch 11-14-2012 12:13 PM

not a very good one but close enough.

And lol at the game sizes explanation.

Once again, Nintendo Japan is ahead of the game, even though it comes out in America in a few days and Japan in almost a month...

Jackano 11-14-2012 12:16 PM

Does the bad red sign at 9:02 just means I'm screwed with my plan of using a USB stick?

WhyMe6 11-14-2012 12:16 PM

Yes! The Wii U eShop's Virtual Console *will* work on GamePad! Just not Wii VC games, right? That's what he said?

That makes sense, considering that they previously spoke about using the original Super Mario Bros. as the testbed for the gamepad latency.

I like how instead of using CG graphs, he has a person actually pouring different colored pebbles or whatever into a cylinder lol

Pineconn 11-14-2012 12:18 PM

My 32 GB just went down to 29 GB.

Damn base 10!

Toki767 11-14-2012 12:22 PM

Transferring digital titles from one hard drive to another is nice.

Kazerei 11-14-2012 12:22 PM

8GB is actually 7.2GB
32GB is actually 29GB

I like how Iwata actually took the time to explain it.

Edit: FUUUUU
Edit2: also love the colored beads demonstration :lol

Basic set with more memory confirmed!!!

cvxfreak 11-14-2012 12:23 PM

- Wii U keyboard input can save user input habits and predictive input in a specific database that depends on the game and user. Wii U does not save input data that you don't want other users to know into the database.
- Miiverse settings can be turned on/off depending on the save profiles per game.

Pineconn 11-14-2012 12:24 PM

[strike]It looks like you have to use an external hard drive with a separate power source. I can't understand Japanese, so I'm going by the big red exclamation point that appeared when the hard drive was connected to the Wii U without separate power, lol.[/strike] Dual USB will work; single USB is not guaranteed to work.

Same with jump drives. Probably won't work.

I have no idea.

neoanarch 11-14-2012 12:24 PM

Basic only has 3gb useable space. Why even have a 8gb option.


For those of you begging for cheese. Use the transcribe audio then translate to english. Its not that bad and you can follow along pretty ok.

polyh3dron 11-14-2012 12:24 PM

looks like they really felt the need to explain the benefits of more storage in a very simple way, lol

cvxfreak 11-14-2012 12:25 PM

- 8GB = 7.2GB, 32GB = 29GB in terms of actual save data. Wii U uses around 4.2GB when using the system for the first time.
- NSMBU is ~2GB, Nintendo Land is ~3.2GB. So, both won't fit into the Basic set at the same time.

Danthrax 11-14-2012 12:25 PM

Does "mata" mean "so" in Japanese? It sounds like he keeps saying "mata" as a transition word.

In this context it's probably 'up to'

Alistair Roo 11-14-2012 12:26 PM

- So.. apparently you can transfer your games (save data/downloaded) to a bigger HDD when your older one runs out of space (?)

freddy 11-14-2012 12:28 PM

Even Nintendo is sick of the 3 or 4 pages of train hype and body-is-ready pics that begin every Nintendo Direct thread.

What do the pink beads represent? The really tall column.

- Wii U lets you put data onto a connected USB media drive.
- One USB drive at a time only.
- Cannot disconnect the external drive while plugged into the Wii U and receiving power.
- You can use general drives.

It could work depending on what brand/model you use. He's saying they'll put a list of what works and what doesn't. Basically it's the same with homebrew on the wii, not every usb-powered hdd or flash-drive works.

Oh, OK. Just from listening to his cadence, it didn't sound like it would mean "up to," unless he had a particularly long pause before saying a quantity. I dunno, I know all of four words in Japanese. =P

Looks you can use them but these usb powered hard drives need to use Y cables for extra power.

Zulithe 11-14-2012 12:32 PM

hopefully those usb 2 WD mypassport drives work fine. i have several of those. they are very common. It's a single-corded device
