Nintendo [url="http://www.destructoid.com/basic-wii-u-can-t-install-nintendo-land-to-8gb-hard-drive-238669.phtml"]already blundered the original Wii U[/url] in terms of hard drive space, as the system couldn't even fit one of its major titles at launch without an external hard drive.[/color][color=#000000]
My issue is that although most of us know how to buy a cheap $50 HDD and simply plug it in, you're alienating a ton of casual users who don't partake in technology trends. This could have been alleviated with thumb drive support, which [i]everyone[/i] has at this point, but Nintendo quietly states that you're not supposed to use USB sticks on the Wii U.[/color]

To add to the confusion, it looks like[url="http://www.destructoid.com/review-lego-city-undercover-248582.phtml"] [i]LEGO City Undercover[/i][/url] will be launching with a last minute feature of its own -- it will [i]require[/i] an external hard drive to install the eShop version. [url="http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-03-15-wii-u-external-hard-drive-required-to-download-lego-city-undercover-nintendo-says"]Eurogamer reports[/url] that the game may run at around 22GB, which is near the full capacity of the 25GB allotted in the 32GB Premium Wii U model.[/color]

I'm playing through [i]LEGO City Undercover[/i] right now, and just as Jim said, it's a decent little charming adventure. I just feel bad for all the people who will want to download it on Monday, and have no idea why they can't, with a completely clean hard drive.[/color][color=#000000]
It just seems...weird, when the other two older consoles can fit more than [i]one[/i] digital retail game on their hardware out of the box.[/color]

It's only the downloadable one that requires an external drive. The retail one is still on a disc.
