Wii U missing HDD

So the Wii U is supposed to be a powerful next gen console. The other two consoles of the current gen (360 and PS3) have hard drives so why would Nintendo opt out of putting one in the Wii U? Just doesn't make sense.

When did Nintendo ever say they were or were not doing this? Even if they don't, I prefer memory cards to hard drives. Easier to take my data to a friends' house. Regardless of my personal preference, Nintendo would be dumb to not include a HDD...I don't think they're that dumb. Do you have some links to validate your assumption?

It's pretty common knowledge that the Wii U will not have an internal HDD. I'm not allowed to post links yet so I'll pm you the link.

I've checked out a few links and it looks like it will at least support external hard drives. I have no problem with that. You can buy a good sized one for $50. But you are right, it's a bad decision on Nintendo's part.

Agreed, no HDD? thats really pathetic considering this is ment to be the next big online console. This almost guarentees no good dlc launch day considering everybody will have to also buy the additional HDD. More money for something that shoulda been included with the system.

Nintendo..... Stop making stupid choices for fanboys like gamecube to fight for.

EDIT: Gamecube, it wasnt an insult. I'm allowed an opinion so dont just edit my post to how you see fit.

Is there a way to contact Nintendo to tell them we want a HDD in the Wii U?
