Wii U v3.0.0 update is live! OMG NO MORE OVERSCAN!!!

Speed fix? Funk dat! I can finally see complete images on my TV!

The Wii U version 3.0.0 update went live a short while ago, introducing a host of fixes and other significant tweaks. Of all the new features introduced, the one I'm most excited about is NO MORE OVERSCAN!!! WOOOOOOO!

That may sound like such a minor thing to be bothered by, but it bugged me personally to no end. Having the edges of the screen cut off and possibly missing out on important information just outside of my view? Balls to that! Unfortunately, my TV is such that I couldn't manually adjust for overscan, leaving me to pray that Nintendo would eventually address this issue.

Consider this problem addressed! A new TV settings option allows you to scale the size of your picture should your TV be among those that were held back a few years in school. Previously, this tweak was only available within certain apps like the Miiverse and the Internet browser, but now you can apply the changes on a universal level -- you can see the before and after comparisons in the gallery. After being told several times I should suck it up and buy a new TV, I feel vindicated.

Bone up on the rest of the changes further down.

Version 3.0.0 U available via wireless Internet connection includes the following improvements:

New Features:

  • A standby function to download and install software while the system is powered off
  • Software purchased from the Nintendo eShop will automatically install in the background once the download is complete
  • Holding down the B Button while the Wii U logo is displayed during startup will load the Wii Menu *¹

Changes to System Settings:

  • An option to transfer and/or copy between two USB storage devices in "Data Management"
    • To facilitate this feature, you will now be able to connect two USB storage devices to a single Wii U console*²
  • The ability to select multiple software titles when transferring, copying, or deleting data in "Data Management"
  • The option to adjust screen size is now available under "TV" *³
  • "Auto Power-Down" has been renamed "Power Settings"
    • Options for the standby function are located within this menu

Changes to Miiverse:

  • Added support for the Wii Remote, Wii U Pro Controller, and Classic Controller
  • Handwritten posts will now also display on the TV screen during creation
  • "Undo" and "Redo" buttons are now available when creating a handwritten post
  • Removed screen size setting. This option can now be adjusted from System Settings

Changes to Nintendo eShop:

  • Software downloaded from the Nintendo eShop will include released updates and will no longer need to be updated after installation
  • Removed screen size setting. This option can now be adjusted from System Settings

Changes to the Internet Browser:

  • Added support for the Wii Remote and Wii U Pro Controller
  • Added the option to change search engines when performing a keyword search
  • Added the option to return to the start page from the bookmark menu
  • Removed screen size setting. This option can now be adjusted from System Settings

Changes to Download Management:

  • Added the option to change the priority of downloads

Improvements to system stability and usability:

  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience


*1 User selection may be necessary
*2 Only one USB storage device can be used during normal use
*3 A similar option has been removed from Nintendo eShop, Miiverse, and the Internet Browser

Holy shit, App Store. The copyright infringement is real. I didn't buy it, because I'm scared it'll make my iPhone explode and because the comments say the game's a generic zombie title with fake and misleading screenshots.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(
