    Well guys, I've run into the "Not all software could be displayed. Please delete any software you are not using" message. Ohhhhhh Nintendo... you suggest a 2TB harddrive, yet it cannot be filled. I hope they fix this on the Switch.
    Aside from deleting games, have any workarounds been discovered for the content limit?

    Put them in folders? Haven't gotten that far but if it's out of tiles then folders should fix it?

    The limit is 300 titles correct? How on Earth do people have 300 titles? Tons of virtual console games? If you need to delete titles VC titles would probably be a good place to start. You can use emulators on anything with a CPU these days. Perhaps there will be a solution to the title limit with a CFW. What I would like to see is alphabetized titles. Why the OFW can't sort by alphabet is beyond me. Nintendo being Nintendo I guess.

    It has nothing to do with space as in tiles. There are more than enough empty tiles. It's more so a limit on the actual amount of titles Nintendo has limited per console.

    I support indie game developers and have a lot of eShop indie games, as well as a stack of digital copies of games. I prefer digital games, disks are a pain.

    If anyone can do it it's @FIX94 or @dimok. They are our Wii U gods.

    We don't need to increase game limit. We have emulators like retroarch so you don't need to keep those VC games.

    You don't need to install every game out there, this isn't collect 'n brag battle. [C'mon, we have better things to do. Like exploiting Wii U even more (To that state to launch Linux?), searching for even better coldboot solution etc. ]

    Hmm, come to think about it...

    A little while ago when I purchased what might have been my 150th game (yeah yeah stuff it), the next time I turned my Wii U on there was a loading screen that had something technical (I don't know, I think it said reallocating something? ) it took a few minutes to finish then afterwards I didn't see anything different.

    This is interesting. It might just been reallocating memory but it failed to hide it so it just appeared on-top Wii U menu boot screen(?)
    [I might be blabbering nonsense but it might explain it]
