Wii U Will Let You Plug A Three Terabyte Hard Drive Into It

By Ishaan . September 13, 2012 . 2:20pm

While the Wii U only has between 8 and 32GB of internal storage (depending on your model of choice), Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime, says that you can plug your own three terabyte hard drive into the console if you want to.


Speaking with Engadget, Fils-Aime shared: “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 will come in two packages—a basic set for $300 and a deluxe set for $350. You can find details of both those packages here. Wii U will launch on November 18th in North America.
