Why is the Wii U so fucking slow?

The original Wii is faster. I’d take the original Wii over the Wii U any day. Install a game to the internal NAND, and you’ll see how slow it is.

Doesn’t look like you can easily move stuff from the NAND to a USB drive, or maybe you can once you have a usable drive.

The drive I brought over doesn’t power up, the light on the enclosure turns on, but the drive itself doesn’t turn on, it’s mechanical, so it’ll vibrate if the drive is powering up.
