That reminds me, what happened to the communities introduced in MK7? Seemed like such a good idea back then. Communities with Miiverse may just be enough for me to be interested in online play, even if a bit.

Unless they have some 1TB drives around $50-60. That's what I'm seeing a lot of the 500GB go for. Maybe I should wait another week and see what I can get on black friday.


1TB is 69 dollars and 2 Tb is 89 dollars at Frys. They're externally powered and manufactured by Toshiba

Obviously we have different versions of work. "Plays all your old songs, but with none of the new features advertised on our new hardware, and with the very real possibility it will be impossible to carry them over another generation" doesn't hit it for me.

By the way, how do I play all the NES and SNES games I bought on the Wii VC on a 3DS?

I know we've known this for a while, but I'm still disappointed you can't earn premium points on the 3DS e-shop as well...

Ya, and if it is FAT32, we should be able to repartition after the initial format if we want to.

Is it confirmed FAT32 or is it their own format?

Fat32 is the most common

But it has never been confirmed as such

Anyone that tried this with the Wii, I think they said they used FAT32

There are LOTS of file system directories with 2TB limits. ext3 being the first to come to mind.
If Nintendo were dead set on preventing piracy, a rarely-used variant combined with other measures could make the difference.

Wii VC games work on WiiU so this analogy makes zero sense.

Just watching that Nintendo direct and noticed they are using base 10 in their marketting. So my 32GB is not 32 GB...and that's before formatting. I really hate that sort of thing..

It's about being able to re-purpose the external HDD if you decide to no longer want to use it for the Wii U. If there's no way to manage the files with a PC, the only options here are to wipe it clean and lose everything or transfer it to another external HDD that is formatted for the Wii U. The former is a terrible option and the latter has no point.

Well, technically they are using the correct symbol. "Your" GB is actually a GiB, or Gibibyte. More information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibibyte

They aren't using points for the eShop. The Wii shop on the other hand still uses Wii points.

The points are only to redeem money if you have a Premium Account.

1 block = 1 megabit (Mb) = 1/8 megabyte (MB)
3 TB * 1024^2 MB/TB * 8 Mb/MB = 25,165,824 blocks

Yes but the established norm since almost the dawn of computers has been base 2. It just confuses the issue. DVD's generally still use base 2. When companies list their games they likely list them in base 2. When you get a directory of a filesystem it's base 2.

Anyway, no major, just annoying.

Not really important, but maybe interesting: That's no longer necessarily true, Apple changed the way they display available/used storage to base 10 with Snow Leopard. And many Linux desktop environments use correct prefixes for base 2 units.
