Nintendo has a good piece of advice for those who are giving a Wii U as a Christmas present to someone: open the Wii U and run a system update before you give it as a gift to the lucky person.This will make it “good to go” as soon as it’s opened, according to Nintendo. If you were lucky to find a Wii U at a point when the console is almost sold out everywhere, go the extra step and run the system update (which can take a while) before wrapping it up.
