Earlier this morning, Reggis Fils-Aime took to the stage at the Nintendo Direct Conference in New York City to announce the launch information for the Wii U. With the premium Wii U bundle featuring 32GB of flash memory, people began to wonder through what means would they be able to upgrade that seemingly-small amount of space? Well Reggie was quick to address this.
Speaking to Engadget, Reggie stated that “You can plug in a full-on three terabyte hard drive if you want. I’ll love you as a digital consumer.”
3TB is a lot of memory for one console. One has to wonder what people would download to take up a whole 3TB of memory.
With this information now public, how will the developers gear their digital products – DLC, games, etc. – on the Wii U’s eShop? Will they be mindful of those that have gone the extra mile in purchasing more memory, or might they consider the 32GB or 8GB owners first and foremost? Only time will tell, but for now, it looks like Nintendo has digital-download consumers in their highest regard.
