Nintendo Wii U Doesn’t Use Blocks For Memory Storage

Back of New Super Mario Bros. U game box

If the back of the New Super Mario Bros. U game case is any hint, the Wii U won’t use blocks for counting memory size any more, but will use normal counts of megabytes instead. This is change has been needed for awhile, especially since the most recent Nintendo consoles haven’t used Nintendo proprietary memory cards. Considering you can attach extra memory to the Wii U via a USB external hard drive, this change in how the console refers to memory should help players.
