6 USB 128GB flash Drives for 75.24 that's 768GB which is cheaper than the harddrive in PS3 and the game will run better because you don't have to worry about the access time latency of hard drives. Wii u is a more customizable experience. USB flash drives are better than hard drives. Plus they don't just have to be used with the system like the PS3 harddrive does.

£219.84

You can get a 500GB PS3 bundle for £219.84

£257

You can get a cheap and more powerful Wii U for £199 and buy 768GB of USB flash drives for £58

It comes down to whether you want to pay £38 for a next gen system that can play games like watch dogs. Not to mention the addition multipurpose USB storage device that YOU get to choose how much you want. So you could get one 128 GB usb flash drive with the system for about £209 or two for £219 giving you 256 GB of more efficient memory and a stronger system for the same price as a PS3. USB Storage CAN be gotten for 10 Euros for 128GB.

Er. It's kinda true. Unless the harddrive is solid state. But a SSD is expensive as all hell. But I'm not too sure buying a bunch of USB drives to compensate for a harddrive would work out too well.

I have a hard time believing that that website is selling 128GB flash drives for so cheap.

Except that it is. A flashdrive is solid state. So it's got faster read and write speeds than your standard harddrive.

External hard drives cost more than internal hard drives. Take a trip down to newegg.com and look for yourself. That and USB 2.0(WiiU) is far slower than a SATA 3 interface.

Doesn't matter. At the end of the day you are still limited to max speeds of USB 2.0

Regular old HDD is just fine. No need for solid state or flash. Unless its your preference.
