The console just recently was announced to have an internal flash memory cap of 32GB; to which many voiced concerns. Reggie has assured everyone that with USB support you can even plug in a 3TB hard drive if you want to.
Talking to Engadget, he said:
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.
The Wii U has been announced for a release date in November. The console will come in two models: the Basic Model ($299) and the Deluxe Edition ($349).
