This is bad. The OS takes 4.2GB from 7.2GB available.
X360 slim 4GB gives you 2.7GB.

Bit disappointed, but I figured I'd need an external hard drive at some point, just looks like it'll be sooner rather than later.

Why can't we take the Xbox 360 OS and put it in the Wii U's internal memory then?

This almost means external hard drive is a mandatory. Also day 1 update is still unknown wher it will be stored. If its in those 3GB memory...

Yup this is how it always is. Gotta make room for that OS. Is the same with my PS3 and 360.

8GB = 7.2GB, 32GB = 29GB in terms of actual save data. Wii U uses around 4.2GB when using the system for the first time.


As in, it does not when you use it the second time?

Hopefully the day 1 update is just a key unlocking all features already stored in the memory.

If I had to guess, 512 MB of that 4.7 GB is taken up by "Wii Mode", since the system would need to emulate the internal memory of the Wii.

Anyway, it doesn't affect me - I'm getting the 32 GB version. =D
