Engadget had a chance to chat with Reggie Fils-Aime and confirmed there is no limit to the external stage you can have for your Wii U. Reggie says Nintendo didn’t want to use excessive storage solutions with Wii U, as that particular sector is seeing rapidly declining prices.
“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.”
