Whelp, at least Capcom won't be suing Nintendo for having the content on the disc to begin with.

What's all that about mate?? Enlighten me!! 😊

Capcom is infamous for developing the DLC before launch, putting it as a locked file on the disc, and then having players purchase what is basically a 5-10 dollar "key" to unlock it.

Its just sort of seen as abuse of DLC and greed on capcom's part.

so the DLC of MK8 is bigger than Zelda Wind Waker HD (1,7GB)???? b......but how?

Nerdmaster1271d ago (Edited 1271d ago )

Capcom is suing Koei Tecmo because of some patents regarding aditional content when using expension packs with the disc of the original game or something like that.

And since Capcom is the "king" of using DLC already inside the game, King Nezz made a joke that Capcom could sue companies that do the same thing.

The sad part is that this "joke" could very well come true...

oh no. 2gb of storage on a console that can have a maximum of 4tb. Whatever will i do.

Nintendo's pitiful amount of storage (internally) on the Wii U is going to hurt them when it comes to sales of digital games. History has proven time and again that, when you don't include features in every console "in the box", you can't count on people to buy extra accessories to take advantage of them. 32gb (max) of internal storage is far too little to store digital purchases, so many people simply won't buy more than a small amount of content. It's a shame Nintendo didn't think of this when designing the Wii U, but it's just one of a long list of mistakes they made on the design of this console.

The console can also easily use an external hard drive of your choice and all your troubles of memory are gone.
