Well, I'm glad there's evidence of Blops 2 DLC on the system.

I can see 8GB wii u users needing an external storage device soon as surely the system operating system must allocate about 3GB for current and future firmware updates.

TVii is something which has been highlighted as one of the big features making it an entertainment system... but US only? So, what happens to those outside of america?

Because Europe always gets shafted on these sort of things!

The American market is always top priority with every launch event.

I don't know if you need one in America, but here you need a TV license to recive any broadcasted content. It might be this need that's stopping us from getting TVii. Either that or there's some difference between American broadcasting and British broadcasting that means a hardware/sofware change. It doesn't really bother me that we're not getting it. It's not like I can't watch TV... on my TV normally. Plus if you don't have freeview you probably have digital/subscription anyway, making TVii a near-redundant feature in this country. There's also online services like iPlayer where you can watch live TV anyway, so it's not an inconvenience to lose TVii. I guess it's only useful for that situation where someone wants to watch something else. I'd be willing to bet that there'll be another iPlayer app for the WiiU at some point (if the Wii version doesn't work on it), if not a future release of TVii.

This is not quite true, in the UK (not sure on rest of Europe) you need a TV license to receive televised broadcasts, however if you use app's like BBCi player you don't need a license for these, you could watch TV content without a license as long as you don't watch it while it's being shown on TV. So in theory you could have a TV which isn't connected to any televised signals, hook your laptop up to it with an HDMI cable and use internet to watch TV content without having to pay a license ;)
