That a brand new console would need even a 1GB update (NVM 5GB)
Why release a console that is so half baked that it needs such a large download before it even becomes useable?
Not a good sign for Nintendo IMO
Of course watch the next gen XBox / PS console prove me wrong by being released even less finished, though if it was, at this rate they'd sell it to you in pieces and you'd have to assemble the thing yourself and
have a huge firmware update to download besides
