Since the Wii U has been released into the wild people have been both rightly impressed by some of the things it does and also rightly perturbed by other things that it does. Whether it's turning your flash drive into a proprietary device just to transfer saves or locking your account to a system Nintendo has proven that it has not paid any attention to how people expect internet connected devices to work. That being said, what we've learned today about the Wii-U takes the cake. If you live in the European Union you cannot buy or even access any content that is rated 18+ on the E Shop before 11:PM and after 3:AM. It's not like when you create an account there isn't an option to tell the console how old you are. Oh wait. What the fuck was the point of that? What Nintendo has done, in Europe at least, is tell every single one of those customers do not buy 18+ rated games on their system. (By the way 18+ in Europe is equivalent to our M in the USA). That means that when COD puts out new map packs you have to wait till 11:PM just to be able to buy it. Ninja Gaiden puts out some new missions? Can't download it until you are ready for bed. Fucking stupid.
Anyway I think that's the dumbest thing Nintendo has done with their console. What do you guys think?
