Iwata-san apologizes for day one patch, and although we appreciate his response, I'm ok with the patch. This tells me that Nintendo is constantly a work to improve the UI of their new system and we should expect to see a continuous stream of updates on a regular basis. If anyone remembers, PS360 also had lengthy updates during launch. This is standard for new consoles since new things are developed and improved upon after manufacturing has already started.
