Wii U 5.0 Update Brings Quick Start for the Impatient Mario Kart 8 Crowd

By Gary Cutlack on at

Nintendo's made its latest Wii U software update live, bringing the console's OS up to version 5.0. The big change here is the Quick Start Menu, which users can engage to skip the console's usual boot process and launch right into a game. System updates also download themselves while the machine's in standby now, too. [Kotaku]
