As storage is becoming larger and cheaper, has anyone tested any SSD's or cards larger than 512GB?

One day id like to store every single game on the console that it can play without needing multiple power sources or multiple hard drives. But i think you would need like 5-7TB if you include all PSX/GC/SNES/Arcade etc.

ssd is not needed wiiu is only usb 2.0 so you won't benefit from the speed off the ssd .don't know about a +512 sd card but why would you use that on a wiiu?

faster load times, and if you take the wiiu somewhere u can just install all the popular games on the sd card so no need to take a hard drive with you.

SSD is not needed, but its the better storage option for long-term storage. Not looking for speed benefits, but longevity. I've had HDD's fail in my lifetime.

actually ssd isnt a good solution for long term storage, data decay fast on it (faster than mechanical), look it up
(in short, if you let your wiiU with her ssd sit for a while, like 2 years or something, data could be lost)
