So I'm picking a Wii U tomorrow (getting a real good deal by trading in my Wii) and I'm seriously looking at only picking up digital copies of games. I know some people still prefer having physical copies of their games, but I'm pretty much done with them; I've been buying PC games digitally for a number of years now and I'm ready to do the same with this new generation of consoles. But Nintendo have been very slow at adapting to this new invention called the Internet (you may have heard of it) and I'm a little concerned about the feasibility of my plan. So here are a few questions that I'd really appreciate some answers to:
- Are game purchases tied to your Nintendo account or just your console? I know latter applies to the 3DS, which is why I won't be buying games digitally on it for the time being, but I hope I'm right in thinking Nintendo have rectified that with the Wii U.
- How much disparity is there generally between the prices of digital copies and physical copies of games?
- What is the storage management like on the Wii U? I won't be buying too many games for it (mainly first party games), but 32GB isn't a huge amount of space to deal with.
