How many Wii and Wii U games can fit on the 8GB and 32GB Wii U models?

I'm thinking about getting a Wii U in the future, but I'm waiting for more games to come out for it first. I also want to play some Wii games that I've missed out on. For those of you that own a Wii U, should I go ahead and get a 8GB or 32GB model?

If you're planning on making a lot of digital purchases, black with the Digital Promotion.

Really, since you can use an external harddrive the space on the console itself shouldn't be a factor.

Also, it'll vary --- some games might take only 4, others might take up to 10.

You can't download Wii games onto the system. You have to own the disk.

The 8GB model will hold like 1 Wii U game, the 32 will hold like 3-6 depending on the games.

Either get a hard drive or buy the games in a store.

I forgot to mention that I'm going to be purchasing physical copies of games (unless they're download only), not downloading them on the store.

Are you talking about save files?

Save files are incredibly small. Do not worry.

Well, if you're going retail only, then basically either console choice is fine, the download-only titles aren't that big. Though 32GB is the best choice of all.

If you're not planning on downloading much, either will be fine. Wii had 512MB and I never filled it up and I had it since launch day. I didn't use virtual console at all though since I pretty much still have all the games I've ever owned from the '80s on.

Conversely, I did buy a lot of VC titles because in the early gens I was a kid and didn't wise up to the idea of keeping things like that until the tail end of the N64/PS1 era. So the 512mb was a major pain for me.

Now I have a 32gb Wii U and all my VC titles transferred to the new account but guess what? The Wii U's "Wii Mode" still limits it to 512mb worth and the same limit on "channels." *facepalm*
