Wii U can play games from SD cards providing you have a USB card reader

Wii U users have found a workaround for enabling the console to play games from an SD card – all it needs is a USB card reader. Users can insert their SD card into the reader, and plug it into Wii U’s USB port, which treats it as a standard USB thumb drive. No word on how well the games play when using the workaround, but at least it’s doable. Thanks, Nintendo Life.

    Nintendo just announced that it is to allow Wii games to be downloaded from its store and saved onto SD cards. The move comes as part of the firm’s ongoing Japanese press conference. Users will be able to use memory cards in this way starting in spring 2009.
