Nintendo has said that you can save data on a external usb hard drive or the memory slot for SD cards. My cable company has somthing simlar where I can attach a hard drive to the box and store stuff of in there. I havent done it yet but I will probrably end up doing that.

I am finding this thread fascinating. I hope to get to try someone's Wii U over the holidays. That is good to know about the hard drive. I wonder if it is hard to attach.

I have a TiVo and have heard of folks attaching their own drives to them, but I am afraid to open the case and/or void the warranty.

Jose I got the remote to work my tv functions now unless there's something else coming I'm a little confused....no problem about getting back to me I think you and I are the only ones with it so far...who knows maybe for the next challenge I'll give one away....anyway thanks for the info on the hard drive....so are you saying I can go to best buy and pick up a hard drive that they sell for the computers and that would work if so let me know and that's what I'll get...

Lol sorry I have been away tema. THe TVii function will not work till later this month. The only games i have is super mario wii u and nintendo land. I would suggest not buying the 320 gb hard drive because its all usb and you could prorably just buy a 1TB external one to latch on to it. That why consoles have been so pricey since those hard drives have to be big to hold all that stuff.

So today I picked this up for my girlfriend and I hope her husband don't buy the same thing....I was just looking at the gamestop website and on the 13th they will be selling a 320 gb hard drive for the Wii U coming out so that will be my excuse to get it for myself....I really wanted to wait a few months to see if the price would drop like I think it will but my curiosity is getting the better of me...Jose did you get yours I don't remember if you said you got it or not if so have you played it yet

okay so I went back on my word sorta I went to the store to get it and they had two and I was still debating just couldn't make up my mind...then a man came up and he bought one and then another man showed up but they told him I was getting the last one so he was about to walk off and I told him he could have it I'll get it another time just need to think more....so turns out the man worked at a movie theater and gave me 7 movie tickets and all I had to pay was a dollar once I got at the theater....that was nice of him....So anyway on Thanksgiving I learned from a friend of mine that she wanted the Wii U for Christmas so now I have to buy the darn thing that will be my gift to her....

I was looking on EBAY today and the prices for Wii U console are in line to what they should be. Close to retail. I am kind of laughing at the people who thought they would make lots of money on snatching up all the consoles. I hope they break even at least. I got mine at my in-laws house but was too tired to open it up on Sunday after a week of vacation. I will see if put it together tonight when I get off from work.

I think I will have to try the Wii U first hand before I have an opinion. So far, no matter how many videos I see, I just can't wrap my head around the concept. LOL
Maybe it is meant more for kids, as they seem to be drawn to hand-held gaming.

I love the Wii and Kinect specifically because I can *move* and talk others into moving (which is quite a feat with gamers, as I am sure you all have experienced with friends!).

I may love the Wii U once I try it, but I will wait until the price and the lines have gone down. :o)

well I have always wanted to see Mario and Zelda in HD. The controller only works 24 feet away from the console. So I dont think you can take it out side unless your porch is right next to the living room. The new controller for the 3 party games will make it feel like a XBOX 360 controller. Zombie U and Bayonetta 2 are only Nintendo exclusives this go around. Video chat is also included and the Controller will be able to finally consolidate Netflix, Hulu, and some Cable all into one remote. Nintendo is also giving users the abilty for more online communities. The big touchscreen controller is a little clunky and it will require some getting use to but its looking very good for Nintendo with 3 party developers signing on to make games with them finally.

So yesterday I went to the store to play around with this and I could only pull up one game which was Rayman and it didn't work so I'm still not sure about this one I might get it because I like that fact you can play it without the tv...but I'm wondering can you take it out of the house and still play or it has to be close to the tv what's your thoughts Lobo

I have preordered it from walmart but the reason walmart still has any is because they have bundled it with 2 items. First the console, then its bundled with a game. Since the delux version is the best one to get 32GB of Memrory, comes in black and comes with Nintendo land(simlar to wii sports but shows what the new controllers can do. You cant buy it just the console but you also have to buy it with one game 59.99 and the wii U analog controller(similar to the wii's traditional controller. So the leat you end up paying is close to 500 bucks. Most of the other stores have the white regular wii u but whos going to buy that if you have to spend 59.99 for the nintendo land that comes free in the other and only 8 gb of harddrive.

It looks like a lot of places are already sold out of the console via presales. Best buy, gamestop, Toys R Us. Target seems to have coming soon and Walmart is still taking presale orders. Does anyone think that it will be hard to get a hold of a console this close to the holiday season.

You know I actually was going to take my review to heart however there is so many things i learned at the news press yesterday that I didnt. The wii pad is going to be able to control entertainment to your tv. Nintendo is partnering with some major tv networks to have programs delivered to the console. SImilar to smart glass that microsoft released. I think the wii u is priced where it should be and from the news of Zelda being one year out I am kinda chaning me tune on it. 299 is a good price for basic white but the 349 will be in black and have a bigger hard drive. I think my review is my frusttration with the new controller but since my kids want to play the new super mario wii u I think that I should invest in it now. I will let you know November 25th when i pick it up after i get back from Orlando. It releases on November 18th.

Based on your review for it I think it's a pretty steep price....I'm not so sure about this one at all...as a matter of fact I'm going to have to say no to this one...I'm usually the first to jump for things but this I have no interest in

Okay so everyone knows that I went to the gamestop expo and got to try out the new wii u. Well let me know tell you first what it is. The wii U is nintendo's new console that will be releasing in November 2012. The graphics have increased to be in HD and comes with a new controller. The controller is a touch screen game pad with buttons on top and on the pad itself. SOmeone resumbers the current ps3 controllers except that its got this big touch screen in the middle. Now how does it handle. Well i played Zombie U, Super Mario Wii U, and Batman Arkham City Armored edition. Zombie U was okay. The scanning the environment was okay but looks real silly looking around and trying to analyize and item and then hold the pad really steady with one hand as you with the other hand press the touch screen. It just makes the whole gaming experince seem more tedious than it needs to be. Mario Wii U plays just like any other New Super Mario games, the touch pad playing with friends using the regular wii remotes can be used to created blocks to help other players but thats about it. You can play the wii U away from the living room using the remote and play like a handheld. Now I have played batman on the xbox and i though okay i should know how to play this without much help. Wrong. the bad it pretty big and doing the regular fighting in the game made my hands cramp up. Detective mode now uses the pad and you do your upgrades on it as well. Powerups have to be activated using the pad as well as well as switching weapons. Nintendo will have to prove its worth having. Although for the kids i may get it, nintendo has failed to impress me with this new console. If that is all the Nintendo has I wonder how far sony and microsoft will push their consoles when they come out next year or soon after that.
