How long is Super Metroid 30 cents? I hope it still is after the weekend!

Aren't other games 30 cents right now, as well?

So I'll get it and read through the manual and all, but how long does it take to update? I have a 100Mbps D/L connection.

I also got the Western Digital MyBook 2TB external HDD for it. Good purchase?

It is 30 cents until the 13th of next month. One 30 cent game at a time, there are 2 left after this.

6/13.

Kirby's Adventure ended on 5/16. The other 30 cent games are still in the eshop but aren't 30 cents each.

Like an hour.

I am not sure. Does it have a wall plug?

if you don't have a hd tv. be prepared to search around for a Y R W cord from your wii and use that.

the hd cord doesn't work otherwise.

The update is apparently something like 700 MB or whatever.

If your download speed is 100 Mbps, then, the update should take roughly 1 minute to download.

But this is Nintendo... so, it might actually take something more like 10 minutes, or 20 if you're lucky.

Installing it however, might take a bit longer (30 minutes at least).

Yes, it does have a wall plug. It's this one recommended by Nintendo:

The Western Digital MyBook, 2TB.

What do you think?

I've been told numerous times Western Digital is the best Hard Drive maker, and I already have a 1.5TB external for my computer from them that hasn't had any faults in the 2 years I've had it.

I think it should work fine. I have the Buffalo 2TB listed on that page. Looks like they added a lot of new drives to that list since release.
