    yes, I think the number is actually 292 to be exact or that may be the 3ds. both only allow 300. with the 3ds, games can be installer further, but the icons of older games will be replaced with each newer installs. I've never installed more than 300 games on the wii u, so I'm not sure what happens. I know a message pops up saying that you've exceeded the limit, but beyond that I'm not sure. I think the 292 limit is there for the default apps making it an even 300. I don't even have 293 games on my wii u to verify this. however, injects count as a game on the home menu, so it's still restricted in that way.

    the only way to use two hdds is for transferring content. you can't use them concurrently. you can, however, use a wii hdd and a wii u one at the same time. use ustealth on the wii one or the system will nag you about it needing to be formatted. it won't allow you on to the home menu either. the system will keep nagging and restarting 'til you accept if you don't have ustealth enabled, power off one of the hdds, or use a toggle switch.

    Is there a way to have more than 300 games? What about the Loadiine Method?

    I believe with loadiine you can. I have a lot of games for loadiine. I deleted the ones I installed to my usb drive. I think I have over 300 this way. the wii u doesn't have enough good games to warrant a larger limit really.

    Why the Wii U only allow 300 games?

    possibly due to loading the home menu. though, it appears that the system is given the location of games, but meta information like icons and names is not recorded - they can be changed freely even after installation. it works the same way as the ps3 which is to facilitate loading. instead of reading the entire hdd, it reads only what's needed. I suppose in that case it could allow for more games. I'm not really sure why the restriction is in place. afaik, there's no restriction like this on the ps3, though there's a restriction on themes similar to the 3ds' 100.

    no, ds games only. ds games are kinda a pita to play too. it's mostly the double screens. aside from games like Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush, I really don't like using the gamepad. there's a way to change controllers with games, but I'm not sure how you'd be able to play a ds game this way.

    Oh ok, I wanted to play that Metroid: Samus Returns and I don't have a 3DS. I haven't played a good Metroid game in a while. lol
