I was thinking about buying a Wii U Skylanders Swap Force bundle at $210, however, it is the 8 GB version of the system. I don't plan on downloading any games that have physical versions available, but I was wondering if this limited amount of storage would still be a problem for any reason? I plan on playing primarily first party Nintendo titles. Also, does the Wii U have many good original downloadable titles? Thanks in advance for any responses :)

SD cards can't store Wii U games. It's primarily used for Wii Mode content.
@Mongul94: If you're not going to download any games, I think the 8GB version will do fine. If you ever need more space, I advise getting one of these. I have a 32GB version on the back of my Wii U. It's small, discrete, and gives me the extra space I want.

That's the bundle I got in december from newegg as well, I sold the skylanders stuff for about $50. Pretty good deal compared to the $300 32gb models. (though they had those on sale for $250 at the time)
After the updates and everything that's on the console, you'll have a little less than 4gb's, but it's still plenty if you buy all your games physical, even with the occasional eshop only game. And yes, you can always get a cheap flash drive when you do run out. I haven't needed to yet though.

In my opinion, I think the 8 gb bundle was intended for "hardcore" digital users. So they give you practically no memory, and the user can expand this with their own memory. You don't have to worry about it so much with the 32 gb model.
If you're intending to buy everything on disc, you won't have problems with the 8gb model. Though, memory is pretty cheap, so you can expand this easily with an external device.

@Lonelystrokez: I was wondering the same thing. Apparently the 8GB model is basically 3GB after the update. No wonder the basic model is no longer being manufactured. 3GB is frightening unattractive, even if we have the option to use external hard drives. :x
