Not enough it seems

Ubisoft screwed themselves over with WD on WiiU - I mean, releasing it 3 days before smash is suicide, gimped port or not.

The Day 1 DLC will be all it gets, and no it's not included. It will never get Bad Blood. Ubisoft has already said that it will not support the Wii U version after launch.

when did they say that?

They never said it. There was a tweet about lack of dlc but it got deleted. In the end, there's DLC so the comment was just wrong and that's all there's to it.

Let me ask you all. For all other versions, do they require an install? Obviously the PS4/XB1 versions do, but what about the PS3/360? For PS4/XB1 at least, because they install everything to the HDD, I'd imagine that the assets are compressed much more for the download/disc, and then decompressed during the install. Unless the Wii U version requires an install like the rest (but where would you install it to?), I'd imagine the reason why it is bigger might be using a less compressible format in exchange for a faster decompression time and/or assets are duplicated for various areas so rather than having to have the disc being read here and there, it more or less streams the data quicker if stored sequentially (hence, duplication of data).

Xbox 360/PS3 require 7GB for installation, and Xbox One/PS4 require the whole memory to be installed. I'm pretty sure Wii U doesn't require an install. There were at least a couple ports that required installation on 7th gen, but not Wii U. Batman Arkham Asylum and CoD Ghosts are the ones I can name right off the top of my head, so I figure Watch Dogs doesn't need the installation onto HDD, either, especially since the installation space was around the same amount. All it means is that Wii U is reading all data from the disc, while every other machine requires data to be stored on the internal memory.

Nintendo? No. Wii U owners? Yes

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Fair call although I was padding the list out a bit with games that people should be more interested in than Watch Dogs not games I was actually going to get. Maybe I wasn't clear enough but that's what I was doing. I'm actually pretty serious about not giving Ubisoft money and won't buy Far Cry 4 for that very reason. I was tempted to grab the $10 Far Cry bundle on Steam a couple of days ago but didn't even get that. Right now the only full retail games on my radar are Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, Captain Toad, Splatoon, GTAV, Arkham Knight and probably some other game like Project Cars.

......... still, Far Cry 4. It's Ubisoft it would still be a better game to spend money on than Watch Dogs for Wii U.
