    Seems fine, helps that you can use the GamePad to navigate it.

    I haven't been on these forums for months, but now I need to ask something.

    I've been looking on the internet about certain games that use Wi-Fi and their save data can't be copied to an SD Card because of Wi-Fi reasons. I was going to trade in my Wii for a Wii U but I'm not sure if I should knowing that I can lose my save data. Is it possible to keep game data from games like Mario Kart Wii, SSBB, PBR, etc. by disabling Wi-Fi on these games (if possible) or is the data saved on the game disk by any chance? I don't want to lose hours of gameplay

    Not possible.

    Nothing is written to disc by any of these systems.

    Keep your Wii, then, so that you can transfer over the important stuff via the system transfer utility.

    And no, don't ask what that is or how to do it - we don't know beyond the basics yet.

    WHAT'S THIS?!

    Also, apparently you can't save Wii U software onto a SD Card.

    Unnecessary complaining and interesting fact aside, time for a fun fact!

    And it's about time. As a method of storage for video game consoles, SD cards are terribly suited to the task.

    So the only place we save our software is on to the internal hardrive?

    You do realize that external storage exists besides SD cards, right?

    The external hard drives would like to have a chat session with you.

    I also need to correct you on the fact that they do not have internal hard drives. The have internal flash storage. Some may think I am nitpicking, well I'll have them know there is a very big difference between flash memory and hard disks.

    So are we now essentially arguing whether or not you can be on a planet that has been blown up?

    As for not being able to save software on an SD card, that makes sense. It doesn't make it harder to transfer downloads or anything, just gives us one less option, until it is revealed that normal external drives don't work the Wii U, and only officially licensed Wii U external flash drives are compatible with the console. At which point this entire thread throws a collective hissy fit, that continues until E3 and the first trailer for SSBD is revealed.

    For me, being able to buy the Wii U somewhere 2 years later (struggles due to college studies) or this upcming December 25th 9aka Christmas) is a great way for me to experiment with the possible gameplay mechanics I can apply to my Video Game Project. Possibly even build a new type of Video game genre hybrid of sorts.

    One of many reasons I wanted to work in the Game industry.

    So far, I am Impressed with the Wii U's functionality. Now all it needs would be the games and their mechanics

    Don't worry, they've already said any USB storage will work.

    Yes, but that is only a lie to lull us into a false sense of security for when they patch the system via Wi-fi or an on disk update that causes the system to reject all non-Nintendo brand external storage.

    There's a new video out on Wii U's online functions. I'm pretty sure there's some new info in there, assuming you didn't watch the Japanese Nintendo Direct.

    So anyone know how long the line may be at Gamestop on Sunday? First time buying a console on launch day but preordered it but just want to know if anyone may have a guess on waiting time if they ever got a console on launch.

    Yeah, I doubt you'll see such a short wait until closing time or you can camp overnight, your pick.

    Personally I can't wait to camp out for the Wii U tomorrow night. Camping out outside of Gamestop was my favorite thing about the Wii launch, got to meet so many people and just have fun.

    Buddy. Are we really to know how many people will be waiting in line at your local Gamestop?

    It's a high-profile new product launch, yes, there will probably be a line to some degree. Beyond that, what are we really to tell you?
