Plenty of full retail games under 5Gb (2Gb even) on the Wii U. Plenty of full retail games over 30Gb (50Gb even) on the Xbone.

Don't forget the HDD difference is not 32:500:500 Gb, but closer to 29:320:400 Gb after OS space requirements. And the PS4 and Xbone require installations for physical games as well don't they?

Naturally if you're planning to go all digital, in either case, you'd want a larger HDD. Except on the Wii U a 2TB HDD would easily last the life of the system, whereas on the others, you'd find yourself still needing more.

but you were talking full retail games on digital. So im going to assume thats what you were talking about, not sure why you brought up installs as that requires a game disc which again is not what you were reffering too. AC 3 alone takes up 17gigs thats more than half right there. SO you wont be able to get Batman or AC4 etc. Outside of Kirby, Toad, Splatoon, Mario etc. there arent a lot of games on that list that are retail and under 5 gigs. There's like ten thats not close to plenty

I was talking about storage sizes, and how a simple comparison of 32Gb vs 500Gb is disingenuous.

If the disc versions require a full install, they take up as much space as digital (which is not the case on the Wii U), so all of your physical games are taking up significant HDD space as well.

You obviously have a different number in mind, but 10 is plenty to me.

Clearly not when tie ratios are usually between 4-10.

Considering also that the smaller games are tending to be the first party titles that are the big sellers on the Wii U too.

 

 



So many people ignored the wrong console.



WiiU is awesome!

I believe they have about the same amount as of now. There are more announced for the PS4 and XB1 though.

PS4 487 > Wii U 457 so yeah


How many of the Wii Us 457 are nes/snes/gc games from VC?



Well this thread has gone far behind the topic of why (or why not) the Wii U is the worst selling Nintendo console of all time and the reasons behind that and now it's just a never ending argument between both sides. Along with that, there has been a fair bit of vitriol and toxicity, so this is getting a lock.
