Since the Wii U basic only has about 8 GB of internal hard drive space, and the game itself is about 22 GB. Well, let’s just say it doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that the equation doesn’t work. Even the players with a Premium set of the Wii U might need to look into external hard drive space since most of the 32 GB hard drive space is reserved for its operating system.
“You can plug in a full-on three terabyte hard drive if you want. I’ll love you as a digital consumer,” said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.
“The reason we did it that way is that the cost of that type of storage memory is plummeting. What we didn’t want to do is tie a profit model to something that’s gonna rapidly decline over time. We’ll let the consumer buy as much as they want, as cheaply as they want.”
