Wii U’s disc format capable of 25GB storage

While it could be argued that Nintendo’s choice of disc format for the Wii U was an odd one to go with, it might not be all that bad after all. The company’s new console won’t run Blu-rays like Sony’s PlayStation 3, but its proprietary disc format will reportedly be able to host quite a large amount of data anyway, equivalent to 25GB, which will no doubt come in handy considering it is an HD platform.

And while we’re on the subject of “storage,” any info on internal memory is yet to be divulged. However, according to┬áNintendo’s chief game designer Katsuya Eguchi, the Wii U will support external USB drives, which is yet another reason why we should keep an eye on Nintendo’s latest hardware. It might be different, but then again, when has it not been?
