Now I know there's plenty out there, but I'm more thinking of size. I probably won't be downloading many full games unless there's sales, but I will be downloading demos. With that in mind what do you think? 160Gb? 240?

Also does the WiiU use USB 3.0 or is it still 2.0?

I'm using a 2.0/3.0 Toshiba 1TB model found on Nintendo's support page. Works great. Just plug it in to an open USB port and start downloading.

Honestly, with how few of games there are out for this console, I think a 40-50gb HDD will be plenty

160GB should be more than enough. I don't see the benefit of downloading retail games on the Wii U, so I know I would never come close to using that space, and it should be more than enough for demos, VC games, and smaller e-shop titles you can't get in stores.
