Out of sheer curiosity, I decided to take a stroll through the Wii U eShop this evening. I wanted to get a better idea of how much digital storage space each title required. To my surprise, there was one that topped the massive, nearly 17GB Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

At a whopping 20GB of required digital storage space, NBA 2K13 will have your hard drive begging for mercy and your Internet bandwidth wholly consumed for quite a while.

Who in the heck is going to want to download games at those file sizes? I mean I do not even think that many PS3 game exceed 10GB. To each his own but for that I would go with the physical copy. A sports game is not that serious when new ones are released yearly.
and if I might follow-up with what you said on sports games, this is proof that yearly releases for those titles should be in the form of DLC and updates to rosters, rules, etc. They should really switch to every other year for full game releases. We can't expect them yo do 1 release per generation, but as we saw with Madden and FIFA 13 on Wii this year, it was nothing more than a roster update. And in the case of Madden, they actually introduced a more buggy version than previous year, yet it looks exactly the same.And We know its technically feasible, EA did it with NBA Live a few seasons ago.
