Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has explained to Engadget that consumers can use as much external memory as they want with their Wii U console. Fils-Aime then went on to say that Nintendo didn’t want to use excessive storage solutions with Wii U, as that particular sector is seeing rapidly declining prices.
“You can plug in a full-on three terabyte hard drive if you want. I’ll love you as a digital consumer.”
“The reason we did it that way is that the cost of that type of storage memory is plummeting. What we didn’t want to do is tie a profit model to something that’s gonna rapidly decline over time. We’ll let the consumer buy as much as they want, as cheaply as they want.”
