    I'm planing to buy a WiiU and I wondering to buy some games (like Super Mario U) by eshop.

    Can I go with 8GB WiiU and then "install" this (and more future games for sure) in my external HD? this would decrease the performance? Have any of you guys bought and save on external HD?

    By the way, is it USB2 the connection to external HD?


    ps: if this thing about save to external HD would be true, why should I buy deluxe version?

    You can just shove big huge games into your HDD.

    Yes it's USB 2.0 so it's faster than USB 1.1

    Buy deluxe version because Digital Deluxe Promotion

    So I will always be limited by the amount of GIGAs of my WiiU? (sad, I thought I could buy games on eshop and install them on external HD like my 3DS on external SDHC)

    Suppose I bought all the "eshop" games and now I need to uninstall some of my old digital games, is it work somehow like Steam? (I mean, I can remove and install in the future)

    I think you can just download thm right to your HDD since some games tell you you have to connect an HDD if you have the Basic set. Also, yes, you can cancel or delete your games and still download it later by accessing your download history.

    I have a hdd hooked up to my wiiu. you can choose where to save games, either hdd or internal memory. afterwards you can move it too, if you want.

    correct, you cannot save to the sd card slot. But you can put an sd card in a card reader and into the usb port. this works perfectly.
