wii u consoles used This is a topic that many people are looking for. bluevelvetrestaurant.com is a channel providing useful information about learning, life, digital marketing and online courses …. it will help you have an overview and solid multi-faceted knowledge . Today, bluevelvetrestaurant.com would like to introduce to you Nintendo Wii U unboxing, setup & system config video. Following along are instructions in the video below:
“Nintendo wiiu released november 18. 2012. That s today almost exactly to the day six six years after the nintendo wii revitalized the video game market with those motion controls here i am to open the wii u. And of course.
I have a game to go with it so let s see what happens when i unbox this thing just got back from gamestop. There are about six people in line ahead of me we d all pre ordered because they had no systems left for anyone who hadn t this is the deluxe. Set so i paid 350 for this plus tax and of. Course.
5999 for the. Game plus. Tax there s only gonna be. 4999.
Typical of a wii game. But this is no we. This is the wii u. Let s see here aha.
So it doesn t have a lid that lifts up you have to slide it out and here s what you get lots of different chunks layers. See. This is probably gonna be the gamepad. The innovative new game controller that people thought might just be an upgrade to the existing wii.
But no it s part of a whole new system has two analog sticks one on either side a b x y. And a super nintendo. Configuration. The d pad right here power button control for labeled tv battery home microphone.
Here s the camera. See up here. We have a volume control headphone jack ac. Adapter lr triggers zlz.
Our bumpers or actually vice versa. These would be the bumpers and these would be the triggers nothing descriptive on the sides and a little screw right here perhaps to mount it on something. And this looks like it should be a battery case that lifts off with the screws right here. And there s a sync button right.
There already this i m guessing is the console itself i ll be darn nice and black and shiny black is unique to the deluxe console. Which has 32 gigabytes of internal storage. The white console has only eight otherwise as far as i know they are identical in function and capability. So game designers don t need to worry about which unit you have the other big differences as you ll see is it with i could continue with the unboxing between the read the the lots.
And the regular sets are what comes in the box over there. See see these are not lids. They do not lift open. I m wondering where the sd card goes.
There it is sd slot. 2. Usb ports eject power sink. There s also a sync button on the gamepad.
So those are probably how they sync together and see on the back you have another usb port. A censor bar. The ac adapter av multi out and new appearing for the first time ever in any nintendo system hdmi out oh yeah now we re playing with power this console is luck much longer than the wii. But otherwise looks pretty similar let me grab my wii here you can compare them here s the wii.
I pulled off the lid on the side for a while there and there s my gamecube memory card. This is not gamecube compatible. It is we compatible so i ll finally be retiring my old gamecube games or hooking up my gamecube again with my gameboy player. I like systems.
I can play multiple consoles worth of games so about the same height about the same width. But much deeper interesting all right so there s the game system there s the gamepad. There s this last box right here with all the lovely accessories. So what do we have well this looks like an ac adapter.
Very exciting this looks like an ac adapter so one this one the smaller brick is probably for the gamepad and this is for the system. Because you ll notice that the gamepad doesn t have a spot anywhere to put double a batteries like the wiimotes do so this has to have a recharging station. Which should be one of these accessories. Because that is standard with the deluxe unit.
Although that didn t stop game papa games stopped from trying to sell me another one just in case. This one didn t work out. They said like it s a relationship or something yep that would be the docking station right there and that s where the ac adapter plugs in like a usb. Yeah just got to get going right away there we go.
That s amazing okay. That s fine somewhere to plug that in an hdmi cable right out of the box..
Very nice. I don t remember my xbox 360. Coming with one of these so it s nice. I don t need to now go on amazon buy one for 5 10.
Bucks or go to best buy and buy for 20 to 50 bucks. Another censor bar. Which i already have because i have a wii. They don t want us to buy things that we already have which is why the system comes with no more wiimotes.
But you can t play the system. Without one of these and it s not fair to expect you to have a week. So this is actually a good thing to include besides you can always use extra censor bar. Right and case you run out of menorahs or something the manual one of the few instances in which you ll actually see one of these anymore because not much as actually sold in stores.
Nowadays. It s all downloadable and let s see what languages is this in it looks like spanish french and english that sounds about right very exciting. Let s see this is the i don t know cuz. It s not at all in english.
Okay. So that s just fancy french and it appears that is here we go english. I understand this the quickstart guide you can battle be consulting this very quickly or perhaps. I can just figure it out shouldn t be that hard to hook up for week.
I hope when i m most interest in is transferring data from the weeds that we you this is not a charging station. This is simply a cradle now why you would want to cradle your gamepads. When you could be charging. It i m not quite sure and finally there s nintendo land we this is their equal nintendo wii sports.
This is your introduction to the new system is from one to five players and has a whole bunch of different minigames on it just like we sports. Did all right let s get this thing hooked up naturally the gamepad doesn t come charged who knows how long it s been sitting on the shelf. So before i came to turn on the system. I need to charge it it s currently sitting in the cradle.
I ll give it about an hour before i turn on the wii u. A couple of caveats first if you were paying attention during the unboxing which i obviously was not you may have noticed two accessories get discarded. Because they were taped to some of the cardboard packaging well i found them. Here.
They are these are the stands or mounts for the wii u console in case. I want to mount it vertically instead of horizontally in my particular scenario. I m not going to be using these second. I apologize for the dust on my entertainment center.
You can see i haven t used my wii much lately and video game systems don t really get moved around much anyway. Third of all i ve used as many of the same connectors for my wii u. As i have for the wii. When possible that means the same sensor bar.
I could not use the same ac adapter because it s actually shaped differently. They don t want you using the same one and i also have not used the hdmi cable. That came with the wii u. For now.
Even though i do have an hdtv. I m using the component input since i don t have a screen capture device and i will only briefly be showing the video output of the wii u. I m hoping that it won t matter. Too much to you alright.
Let s turn this bad boy on my game. Room wasn t designed for gaming during the day. And i don t have any letting equipment so i apologize for any reflection. But nonetheless let s see what happens gonna grab the gamepad and press the power button in the corner here it says turn on the tv and the wii u s of wii u console.
Then i switch. The tv is input to the correct setting for wii u. And then it repeats at the same item in three different languages. Let s see turn on the wii u console alright that s true since these aren t synced yet.
I might not be able to turn on the console. And using the wii mode or rather. The gamepad here. We go the whirring sound is very familiar from the wii.
The blue light is on my tilt down a bit. So you can see it more. There s the console down. There no sound.
Yet hmm turn on the wii u. Turn the wii u..
Gamepad. On and then press the sync button on the wii u console. Okay. Pushing a little red button that says sync confirm that the wii u.
Gamepad. Is turned on then press the sync button on the wii u. Gamepad and enter the four symbols shown below. Now the button is a little bit recessed so i m gonna have to use my pen to press.
It and then it says to enter four different card suits. I believe that being clubs hearts spades spade c. Clubs art. My first experience with the touch interface on the gamepad spades spade connecting to the wii u console.
Looks. Like they re talking to each other almost looks like a gameboy advance over there your wii u. Gamepad is now ready for use please look at the gamepad screen in french or spanish. Okay.
I m looking at the screen. And i saying the same thing on both screens. Please look at the gamepad screen. Instructions whoa.
Interesting. The gamepad says instructions will appear on the tv screen. So. Which is it when i push the home button.
See what happens no home okay. Push the tv button. Oh tap the screen to set up the console. There we go now i have to use my pen to push the sync button cuz.
There is no stylus with this system select language english french spanish or portuguese english please please proceed with setup using the wii u gamepad change the display language of the wii u. Gamepad. It may take up to two minutes okay i thought it already wasn t english. But i ve actually was showing all the languages language set to english that took a lot less than two minutes country you know i say it s canada mexico and many others.
The united states please from now on you ll be able to turn off your console using the power button on the wii u. Gamepad. Great tap next or push a a set the date and time it s not on the internet. Yet so it doesn t know this on the tv screen.
It s showing august 25th of 2012. Which is about three months ago on the gamepad is showing january 1st of 2012. Today. Is actually november 18th of 2012.
And the time is of noon. So 11 58. It s not asking. But that is eastern standard time date and time i ve been saved changing the display resolution of the tv screen my tv has been configured for for adi because as i said i m not using hdmi at this moment.
I ll have to reconfigure that later it says if you want to change. These settings. Tap tv display settings not right now maybe later by setting up the tv remote function you can use your wii u gamepad to control your tv do you want to stuff the tv remote sure why not i wonder if it can automatically detect my samsung this set of process will enable you to control your tv using your wii u gamepad please select the type of remote you currently use to control your tv. I used my tv remote enter.
The first letter of the tv manufacturer s name samsung s. Sampo samsung sensei samsung after turning on your tv test each of the buttons on the right to confirm everything is working volume that actually is working the volume on my tv is going up and down. I actually don t want volume on the tv. Because i use surround sound let s see and i can even choose my input source.
So i tap worked as opposed to didn t worked configured manufacturer samsung device tv signal type 1. I guess that was the only function as a test was input and volume you can only use the tv remote when the tv remote screen displayed on the gamepad this feature can be used while playing games without suspending them you can also use this feature even when the wii console is turned off. I use the right analog stick to control the screen. The tv screen ok set up for tv remote is now complete.
Okay. If you re using a sensor bar. Please configure the settings. Okay set it up since the bar is below the tv.
Okay tap the icon to the left of the wii u menu to view health and safety information. Not play on having a seizure. So i ll pass for now. I click through to the eula and the tos.
Agree agree agree the internet connection. Now needs to be set up great..
I am going to use well let s see i actually don t broadcast. My ssid. So. It s certainly not listed here push y for connection type manual.
Configuration. Ssid and type in the name of my network and security. No actually i don t use a password. I use mac address filtering so i need to know what my mac address is from my wii u.
I don t see that option. It s not under dns not under ip not under proxy settings. Not under. Mtu value hmmm.
Let s figure. This out pause for a moment. Survey. Says nothing in the manual about mac address filtering.
So i m going to assume that the options presented to me on the gamepad are more limited than what the wii u. Is capable of and will present to me later on a tv screen configuration so i m gonna bypass internet connection for now i do need to get that set up though if i want to transfer data over from my original week which i definitely want to do so i m gonna click back your changes will be saved sure not that i think i made any you like perform a connection test. No because i m not connected this is so much different from the original. 8 bit nintendo.
Or even the super nintendo around. 64 on wii u. I ve been such a saved addict and recorded play time can be safer match. Individually for each user add new users following the instructions on the screen.
I just want to bring my knee over from my way. Though do i really need to make a character. Now when i m gonna be bringing one over soon you know like i haven t already waited years for this console. Now i gotta wait for it to load everything create caricatures look at the screen.
Let s see how would you like to register this me create or receive or choose they look alike well let s just choose a look alike for now. I really don t want spend a lot of time making somebody original okay just don t use inappropriate language in your deck names or creator names. Because they may not be displayed on other users consoles all right so i m gonna name my guy ken and his creator is ken sure whatever you can change your user. Me later that s a relief loading.
Now milotic please wait your call is very important to us the screen continues to tell me. The tv screen that to reference the gamepad everything seems to happen down here. When starting the system select the corresponding me character at user selection screen to play as this user. It s not to select him in order to play him you can restrict the user s ability to do things like use and purchase software or access websites.
So this is where i will set up my parental controls. Let s take a quick look at that although. I m not a parent. Myself parents please read it s confusing that there are two sets of instructions on this tv and on the gamepad.
I m never quite sure which one i should be reading first or if i can just ignore. One of them create a four digit pin 1 2. 3. 4.
Same as my luggage please enter the pin again. It s like a secret question. I ll see what is your favorite sports team what s your favorite film. If you go anywhere where would you go well.
Obviously. I would go to nintendo land it doesn t automatically capitalize the first word. And i can t seem to put a space either so nintendo land all one word all lowercase parental control settings game rating. Online interaction internet browser miiverse shopping friend registration entertainment excluding games data management internet settings all right i would not want my kids using data management.
Because that s how uxie end up with deleted. Saved games or you don t end up. With deleted saved games rather because they re deleted could this be the water water plaza. Okay finally i seem to be in a hub on the tv screen it s just my wii you just need to be doing anything and then i have on my gamepad youtube hulu amazon prime we of warning about healthcare and the like settings etc where can i find transfer data from the wii system settings.
Yes. System settings. Please load. The system settings.
So i can set my system and put it online and get the mac address. Please. Use the wii u. Gamepad.
To select a setting to configure view. Mac..
Address is right there. It s one of the very first ones. Wonderful. And there it is now pardon me.
While i go plug this into my airport utility. I ve now plugged my wii mac address into my mac or incidentally ironically just moving to the other room to access my home office disconnected. The gamepad from the tv. Because it was too far away from the wii u console.
And that of course blanked up the mac address on the gamepad. So i couldn t look at it. In one hand and type into my mac with the other now we should be able to connect to the internet. Let s see i need to punch in my there we go connection tests.
We you to network device good network device to internet good. We are online saved. Sweet. There s a system update already or at least the things there might be it s gonna check anyway checking for updates well switch this display like an ipad.
No they will not now says downloading data for update. After 20 minutes and 10 of the download. The gamepad tells me unable to connect to the server error code 108 o 144. Nintendo s own servers are swamped by the millions of we use that they pre sold and are now being unboxed trying to connect to the internet to get the day 1 system update.
I ll try again tonight before i go to bed in case. It takes another two hours to download the whole thing. I just hope that this update is not required for me to proceed with my enjoyment of my new system. The only thing i want to do before i play an actual game is transfer my data from my we how do i do that there are a lot of menus.
Here move managed data what other items here set date time tv screen tv remote calibrate gamepad. Screen burning reduction maybe. A screen. Saver.
Sensor bar. And wiimote sensitivity. Auto. Power down.
System language system. Update. Delete. All content and settings.
Alright. Let s go back to the data management screen there we are okay system memory netflix youtube amazon hulu. There doesn t seem to be any game data on here the usb storage says this option will become available with a system update. So there s something i can t do until i get that system update how do i transfer my wii data let s take a closer look the manual says to insert an sd card.
So i ve taken the sd card out of my wii and into my wii u. Let s see if that opens up some new options now except to go to the wii menu application or wii u menu application. What ll be interesting is that my wii has the homebrew channel on it obviously that won t be transferred. I wonder what sort of modifications the wii u may make in the course of that transfer also the sd card already has data on it that i want to transfer in addition to what s in the wii memory.
I did make a disk image of my sd card on my macintosh prior to this effort just in case. Something goes awry ok. Under data management. It still says system memory and usb storage does not seem to allow for the sd.
Card i m still not seeing any help. Here i m using version 10. Point one of the wii u system software. This is the excuse me wii u menu so maybe i m missing something i don t see any other applications me maker disk system settings netflix youtube amazon hulu.
We daily log parental controls health and safety information this seems to suggest if i pushed x. The screens are switch so they do but i still don t see how to transfer data. Okay let s try the screen that says hmm how do i now that s interesting since i move the menu to the tv. I can no longer use the gamepad to access it i must have to sync a wiimote.
So let s move it back to the gamepad and choose the wii menu so some of these required ok so with the omission of potential gameplay. I would say that ends the unboxing. I can t get the system update right now. I can t transfer data from the weeds of the wii u.
And i m gonna switch over to hdmi before i try the games themselves and since i don t have screen capture anyway. I can t really present a great experience for you. But i hope you ve enjoyed this unboxing gives you an idea of the effort that goes into setting up here. We you my name is ken gagney reporting for game bits and computer.
