    Just a question here. The mario review as hyped me up again. Amazon are out of 32GB, but still have the basic available for launch day release.

    I got a 150gb external hard drive knocking around somwhere (usb cable - might have to get a harddrive with y cables).

    Will i abe able to save sytem data to the harddrive? like firmware updates and that?
    At a guess, I'd say no.
    You also can't save downloaded games to a USB stick as they apparently had problems.

    What do you mean by system data?

    Waiting for the 'other' reviews?

    I'm really looking forward to getting one but I'm not sure when that will be.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    What the machine needs to operate, so the OS, firmware updates etc.

    @Gambit - surely you can d/l games to the HDD, thats the whole point of having teh external HDD?

    I think its safe to asses that whichever "other" reviews come out the woodwork, and they all do, the first few from relatively respected sites - Eurogamer and IGN - are enough to prove the Wii U is going to have a strong launch.
    Hang on a minute, we've only had reviews for two games - one of which was a safe bet to be good (albeit a little unremarkable in the context of the franchise), and the other comes with the console itself. Hardly enough for a "strong" launch.

    Also, IGN "respected"?!

    @joelstinton games to external hard drive - yes
    Os to external hard drive - no
    Games to USB stick - no

    Hope that's clearer :)

    Watched the video review of Mario on ign and thought I was watching the Wii version (didn't help that they were talking about the Wii version at the start). Honestly thought this looks dated, then they actually showed the Wii version and I couldn't believe how shit it looked. Don't remember the PS2 having such bad graphics!

    may have been made worse by the capture resolution? so it was showing it in 720p instead of SD resolution.

    But i agree, at teh time i thought they couldn't really improve graphics, but the HD barrier is a massive difference.

    Please don't tell me you were born in 1978.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Funny, I was recently watching the video review covering Assassins Creed III and swore it was exactly the same game - with the same flaws - we all played/witnessed in Assassins Creed II.
    And your point?

    Why does thread feel more like care in the community than a discussion about the WiiU.

    I think he is 78, therefore falling into two of the key Wii demographics.
