Should I be worried?

I have had a Wii U since launch and have had zero problems with it, now in the past few days the console has frozen three times, two of which I had to pull the plug. It's never happend before, is something wrong?

Unfortunately it seems quite normal.. I've had mine freeze with plug pulling, and I know that the Giant Bomb staff have had many plug pullings! Hopefully firmware updates can fix it!

wait and see. I owned an Xbox 360 once that crashed several times and melted one of my game discs... but then it started behaving normally ever since. (well up until I sold it)

edit: also did you start playing a new game recently? It may very well be the game that's triggering it.

@egg: Melted?! That's crazy! What game?

@egg: Yeah I bought Ninja Gaiden and that seemed to trigger it, then it happened with mario and the cave demo.

It seems like it depends on the game, I've only had problems with Funky Barn and NSMB U... Zombie U was fine for me. (Yes, I have funky barn bitches).

Hopefully the spring or summer update will fix it!

Ridge Racer 6

and "melted" be a bit hyperbolic. However 1) the disc was rendered unusable by the console, 2) the disc appeared differently afterwards.

@egg: Still crazy!
