Question before buying

#1GothmogzPosted 1/23/2013 7:24:01 AM
Hi, I'm interested on getting a Wiiu but I really like digital distribution, right now there is a store or something where I can buy games online instead of physical?, if not, are there plans for it at least?. Also, what media does it use, bluray?

Yes, some of the games are available to download such as Tekken and Mario, but if you're going full digital id suggest getting the deluxe Wii U and an external HDD.

A simple 2 second forum or google search would have got you all the answers you wish.

Short answers are: yes and standard capacity DVDs, not bluray.

Yes, but I highly advise against it. eShop downloads are launched at full retail price, and never drop, so unless you want to buy ZombieU for $50/60, it's not worth it. As far as the DVDs, I think I've heard they're 25GB with the option of dual-layer disks in the future, so they may as well be bluray. Not that they'll ever pay for playback licenses.

Hi, I already have the external hd, why would be good the deluxe edition just for full digital?
