Wii U USB Memory Support Confirmed


Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed that the upcoming Wii U will support USB Memory.

There were worries that the 8GB (Basic) and 32GB (premium) wouldn’t be enough storage but Reggie Fils-Aime has said that the Wii U will support up to a full-on three terabyte hard drive. Speaking to Engadget he stated:

“You can plug in a full-on three terabyte hard drive if you want. I’ll love you as a digital consumer. The reason we did it that way is that the cost of that type of storage memory is plummeting. What we didn’t want to do is tie a profit model to something that’s gonna rapidly decline over time. We’ll let the consumer buy as much as they want, as cheaply as they want,”

Are you happy that extra memory support via USB will be supported? Let us know via the comment section below.
