E3 2011: Wii U Discs to Compete with Single-Layer Blu-ray

on June 8, 2011 2:30 PM

According to the people over at Kotaku, the Wii U will use a proprietary disc format that will be 25 gigabytes in size.

This was discussed in an interview with Nintendo game designer Katsuya Eguchi, though he wouldn’t talk about the size of the new system’s internal memory.

A single-layer Blu-ray disc is also 25 GB, so this new disc should allow for the Wii U to compete with the PlayStation 3 in terms of disc space.
