    I'm thinking of getting a 64 or 128GB memory stick for USB loading. Would the USB get worn out quickly? The Wii U supports USB2.0 speeds max and most 64/128GB sticks are USB3.0 so in terms of speed it shouldn't matter.

    The reason I'm thinking of getting one is because it is easier than a external harddisk which needs more USB power and might get noisy (fans).

    Anyone here who has used an USB memory stick for a long time on vWii? It should be about the same in terms of wearing out...
