I'm sure my colleagues will talk about the Wii U’s lack of games--and rightfully so, this thing is in dire need of more Nintendo titles--but after spending hours playing with the system, my hopes are for something less tangible. The Wii U's UI and dashboard are beautiful, perfecting the minimalist design that makes Apple products so alluring, but they fall down when it comes to basic usability. I really want Nintendo to update the home screen in order to make it more user-friendly, instead of letting it rot as the beautiful mess it is right now.
Basic acts, like finding your friend list, is needlessly complicated, there seem to be strange, arbitrary limitations that simply shouldn't exist (why limit us to 100 friends? Why does the Miiverse limit images to black and white, and a weird, narrow size?). Oh, and hurry up and release TVii already. That's going to be the thing that keeps my Wii U on almost indefinitely, and I can't believe it missed launch.
