NOT anymore, limit has been uplifted now and Wii U will accept larger HDDs... I say go for the 3TB deal, funny after I just got through formatting my 1TB Toshiba...satisfied though!

You'd think they would allow more if they were serious about digital downloads.


Not sure if trolling or just stupid...

Since the WiiU can only use 2TBs total, and has USB 2 ports, buying that hard drive would be a waste of money.


So Reggie lied about the 3TBs? God he's such a liar...

To have games visible through the Channels interface, must they be loaded onto Wii U memory or can they be accessible there despite being loaded on an external hdd?

With Wii, any channels that were on SD card meant players had to go into a separate Channels menu to access the games that were on the SD. I'm hoping this isn't the case with U.

Is that brand of HDD any good?
