So no cable modem support from the WiiU?

Did I read that correctly? It's no wonder they were able to price it the way they did: Cut out alot of functions from the old Wii and force the consumer to foot the rest of the bill. Well I guess I won't be playing Smash brothers anytime soon :-/

They are more or less making you buy an external HDD as well.

Get the adaptor just like you did on Wii.

No Nintendo console has ever had an ethernet port built in.

How are people who don't want to go digital forces to buy an external HDD? I have 13 digital games and 12gb free. 5 of those are VC.

So this is sold seperately? That's what I wanted to know since all previews I read stated that it only supports wireless connection. Better to get that than pay for a router. Any idea how much it costs and where I can find one?

Their needs shouldn't drive the price up for everyone else. A 500gb HDD is $50. DDP points will pay for that. Hell, you can use one you already have even. I know I've got an extra 500gb external laying around after upgrading my computer. I doubt I'm the only one too.
