    It uses an eMMC module. Here's a thread with some information about this component. At the moment we don't know if the data is encrypted uniquely to each console but if that's the case, replacing the part may prove difficult.

    what about upgrading if someone had the means to copy the files to the larger drive wouldn't the unique id number go with it or is it classified to the actual chip itsself

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i don't think that's how you get more memory, i mean, theese things are usually coded to use that specific component.. if you put a larger chip it will probably not recognize or mess up stuff..
