The first 34 Wii U retail titles from the Wii U eShop equal precisely 248.81GB!

Hello, everyone! I've recently completed another project. Unlike the Animal Crossing: New Leaf Dream Codes project that was recently completed, I've decided to focus on building something that Wii U owners can appreciate. It's all about balance, right? After scouring the Internet for a dependable list of games offered in the Wii U eShop, I've decided that it would just be best to create one for our members and fans. It's called the "Wii U eShop Games List Download Sizes (Retail)" page. I didn't just create a list, though.

At the present time, there are forty (40) Wii U retail titles that are available for download from the Wii U eShop. I've listed all of those titles, to include their download size. Titles are automatically sorted from largest file size to smallest file size. At the bottom of the listing, the total number of games can be found, along with the overall cumulative download sizes. Each title also has its own game page, which lists information such as the publisher, release date, number of players, genre, etc. These game pages aren't any different than any of the other game pages found in our main games database, which is currently home to 1,193 games ranging from the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) to the Wii U.

The biggest piece of information that I would like everyone to take away from this new project is that I intend to keep this listing up-to-date as often as possible and ensure that the most accurate information is presented. I am already working on a listing for the regular Wii U eShop titles, which will include games like Trine 2: Director's Cut, Little Inferno, Toki Tori 2, and all of the others ones! I hope everyone likes it!

This is awesome. It is nice to have a place to go to and check on file sizes. This will make it even easier to determine if digital games are even a possibility based on individual memory constraints.
FINALLY! Everytime I go to download a game I always go looking for the size first and have a really hard time finding that info, except when it's already been posted on NintendoNerds. Nintendo should add that to the eShop. But at least we have Nintendo Nerds there to pick up the slack and provide a complete listing. Thanks!
Space is limited. How many of us remember a time when we had to cram files on floppy discs? Oh, what a wonder the ability to write to CDs was! We used to marvel at how much space a gigabyte was, what it meant for the storage of digital media. Now, I read the advertisements in the newspaper and online that continue to show the affordability of digital storage.

The tipping point is here. We're increasingly able to match and exceed the amount of storage space we need for our growing collection of intangible goods. It will be in our lifetimes that we will no longer worry about how much space a file will fill on our storage option. But that time isn't here yet.

Databases are not something most of us think much about, but they are constantly in use all around us. Nintendo Nerds is providing a public service through its games database. The addition of file size an important tool for Wii U players to use when deciding what to purchase digitally.

I'm still weary of digital games, but that's obviously the direction things are moving. When I finally get a Wii U, having this database to reference will be a boon. Thanks, Nintendo Nerds!
