Does the wii-u come with a HDD or any storage capacity?

Only saying because if it doesn't surely you'll have to add another £30+ at least on top otherwise how will you save all your game saves?

I'm not trolling before stealth has a heart attack, I genuinely don't know how this saves games or if it does include a memory stick or HDD.

8gb isn't alot really, so people will have to buy an external hdd or mott stick if it allows those aswell.

has a small amount of internal flash memmory but you will still need to pick up some more space. nintendo like to be seen as cheap and affordable family fun.. i see them more as tight ass sobs who cant even release a console with a propper hdd. im not gonna hate to much on it, the consoles not for me and nintendo are still stuck in the 90s will wait for a real console to come out.

Not here in the UK, it will be the most expensive place to buy a Wii U just like everything else.
used to own - NES, Atari ST, Amiga 500, Mega Drive, SNK Neo Geo, SNES, Saturn, N64, PS2, GameCube, Alienware Aurora.
currently own - PS1, Xbox, Xbox360 + Kinect, Wii, PS3 + MOVE, 3DS, Games PC, Wii U.

I'll only be pleasantly surprised if it's less than 200 quid.

I have to agree with this and I'll be honest I wouldn't pay over £200 unless there is a really good bundle on offer.

Nintendo have got to be worried by the 3 days of share price drops. E3 was supposed to be the point where Nintendo's shares went up, not down. Its the opportunity to sell the product to the world before release, and to get people excited about it. Sack the marketing team is what i say.
