The freezing is all too common. Happened to my family's Wii U three times tonight. Loud steady beep as well. Just have to pull the plug and try it again. Its upsetting because you spend all this money, have high hopes and now Nintendo does nothing but sit back and count their $ that they are making off of us. I'm thinking of returning it....

Yep. I've been noticing the long load times... Just got my first freeze up while playing metroid blast on nintendoland. The game stuttered a little before each round and then, blam! Crashed. Hope a fix is released soon!
