Sorry if this has been brought up already but there is one question I couldn't answer myself, not even by reading all the Wii U PRE- and REviews. It says it comes with 8GB or with 32GB SD Card. Is it possible for me to go for the Basic set and just put a bigger SD card in there, or is it somehow "hardwired" in there?

Sure for bigger downloads a HDD is needed,
I just didn't get the information anywhere if you could upgrade Wii U's internal memory by yourself by just putting a bigger SD card in there. And if yes, how big of a SD Card is supported? 64 GB possible?

Thank you for your answers.

I don't really know what you're talking about. I have the 32 GB Wii U and the memory is internal memory, not an SD card. Also, games can not be played through SD memory, it's purely for storage. The 8 or 32 GB refers to the internal memory, which cannot be removed or replaced.

It's internal memory, and if you want to add space the only way to go is to add a external hard drive, sd cards are limited in what it could actually do..

Ok thanks you two, that answers my questions. Very early previews always referred to the Basic and Premium Bundles as "including 8GB / 32 GB SD card". So it is "fixed" memory. Allright.

So if I don't have any interest in Nintendoland the Basic would be the better option, since I would get an external HDD no matter what anyways. Thanks for clearing that up to me.

Actually, it is, it has the hatch for SD in the same spot... but that's not the internal memory, just like the original Wii has half a gig of internal memory that can't be taken out.

yea but what you get for $50 more is worth the extra money, and I admit some of the attractions in nintendoland is quite fun to play..

Thank goodness they stuck Nintendo Land in one of the bundles, already it's disappointing enough that a lot of "core" gamers might pass on this one thinking it's a mere "minigame collection". I was pleasantly surprised by the depth and content in each of the "minigames" (I hardly can call most of them minigames, with how much they packed into them). The whole game is a love letter to Nintendo gamers.
