Let's just act like the Wii U doesn't have a 8GB storage and Nintendo hasn't announced the Wii U's storage. Honestly, I would be ok if the Wii U will have a HDD but if the HDD will be too expensive (just like XB0X 360 HDDs), I will just stick with my 1TB External HDD. I heard from a site that the Black Wii U will be the "premium version" and it might have a HDD. BUT THIS IS ONLY A RUMOR. Honestly if Nintendo was smart enough, they would make packages like, others have a 8GB HDD, and others have a 320GB HDD etc etc.
