    Nintendos hidden attempt to troll WiiU buyers

    Not sure why this would be set as the default if nothing more than to troll those who don't know about it...I wonder if a big troll face is left on the screen after it shuts off for when you come back

    Be careful when you pause a Wii U game - it just might cost you.

    Nintendo's new system features an 'automatic shutoff' feature, which turns off the system "if there has been no input for a set period of time," according to the system's manual. Here's the catch - a lack of input is still counted when a game is running and paused. We know - we had the system shut off on us when we left the system alone and came back after 90 minutes. System - off. Game progress - lost. By default, this option is activated, and appears to be set to activate after an hour, as we painfully learned.

    All is not lost, however. This is able to be adjusted within the system options. You can turn the feature off entirely, or simply adjust the range of 'idle time' the system needs to register. All in all it's not a big deal - unless you don't know it exists. Then you might find yourself replaying a significant portion of a game, as we just did.

    Lol. Well damn. Not surprised there. ^___^.That's pretty funny though, should of went with a ps3 . or least a 360. And they'd still have that progress. Then agian, what games don't autosave or something and if paused for that long, clearly they didn't make too much progress

    The PS3 has a power save feature as well, but you have to turn it on, its not set to 1 hour as default when you buy it....

    And no single fuck was given this day. Seriously, the forum is plagued with anti-Sony threads full of anti-Nintendo/Micrsoft posts already, yet you come here and post this Davey ?

    How can Nintendo do such a thing?! I call for a boycott of ALL Nintendo products effective immediately! This is a heinous and underhanded feature indeed.

    If you're going to be gone for more than an hour, why not just save and shut off the system yourself? Why leave it on?

    maybe you arent reading clearly...the article isnt meant to talk about an Auto Shutoff, its to let you know that the Auto Shut off is already turned on when you first set it up...so you arent playinf for 3-4 hours, forget to save, then pause your game and run an errand and it shuts off while you are gone...

    Also the PS3 auto shutoff doesn't shut the PS3 off if the game is paused in game

    Assuming you're talking about Ps360, probably just state that it can be turned off at any time.

    Though it shouldn't be a default setting. It could have a pop-up when you first turn on the system asking if you want to activate the feature.

    wow something the xbox and ps3 already had for a long time and can be easily turned off.

    the Xbox 360 has it automatically on too:

    shocker.

    hey look your wrong again.

    You can set the amount of time until the system turns off for [Video/TV/Music/Photo] and for [Game/Other Features].


    The system will not turn off automatically when background download is being performed. When the download is complete, the system will turn off automatically.



    just a case of Journalist sensationalism and Sony Fans trying to find one credible reason to hate the wii u but failing.

    hey look your wrong again.
    Explain to me what I'm wrong about, if you are in game and the game is paused the PS3 WON'T shut off with the auto shut off. It also won't shut off with the Auto shut off when you are in Netflix or Youtube.

    You have to manually check the box to have your PS3 shut off even if you are in game, even if you enable the auto save

    so lets review....from the factory

    Nintendo: Auto shut off enabled, even during games for one hour
    PS3: Nothing set as default....Auto Shut Off is available.....Optional expanded Auto Shutoff must be selected to have auto shutoff include while the PS3 is playing a game..

    maybe that will make things more clear for you

    Lol, I'm just messing. But you know, sometimes you gotta take your time doing other things as well. I've left my PS3 on when I go pick up some food or something.

    Chances are if you're taking a shit that lasts more than an hour...you're doing something else. Probably exploring that one aspect of your body that hardly sees the light of day.
    Doom runs a country, bitch! A nation of slaves! Dig you a grave! I'll make Umbrella look like Welfare, minimum wage! Doom is getting enraged! I come harder! Killed my ex-girlfriend and turned her into a suit of armor! Beat you to death with your legs, leave you in stitches, Marvel 2 is the shit, RE 5 is for bitches!

    Agreed, I don't think I have ever left my system idle for any longer than 20 minutes.

    DS brings up a good point...I wonder what they were doing for 90 minutes that they just had to keep the system running
