Just like the Switch, Nintendo’s Wii U is only equipped with 32GB of internal storage space, even less than the choice of 8GB of white storage space. If you are the type that buys games digitally, or if you have a large number of Wii U eShop games, you may have to utilize some form of external storage to keep all games accessible.
You would think that the typical external hard drive is actually the only option here, which is forgivable, but it turns out that there is actually a way to burn digital games to discs. Not only that, you can also play games directly from the CD, which means you can basically create physical versions of Wii U eShop favorites.
So, how does all this work? Okay, as it will explain? In the YouTube video below, you need to pick up a DVD-RAM disc (please note that a typical writable DVD does not work here). When using a DVD-RAM disc with a compatible DVD drive, your Wii U can format the disc and communicate with it-from there, it’s a simple case of transferring a digital game and playing it as usual, just like Use any USB hard drive like that.
As you can imagine, there is a catch here. Although you can store and run games on discs via the DVD drive, the Wii U’s own disc drive will not be able to read them. You must carry the DVD drive with you.
However, the popular collection of physical eShop sounds pretty cool, right?
