Are there any drawbacks to doing so? Performance hits? Needing to transfer games to play them or can they be played off the external drive? Copy protection issues? Others?

Up to 2tb hard drives work. Powered or usb powered. No performance changes and it plays straight from hdd.

Cool - well not as much of a point of getting the premium bundle even though it is still a much better deal.

Nintendo Land and 10% rebate on all downloads makes it well worth it, IMO.

I didn't find one thing in the premium to be worth the extra $50, but to each his own. Hope you enjoy the console.

Not even the charger? I didn't care about NL but it is a bonus. The charger almost seems like a necessity?

The color alone makes it well worth it imo. lol. That's the main reason I bought the Premium Pack.
