E3 2011: Wii U has 25GB disc size

Nintendo’s next home console will read discs as large as 25 gigabytes of data, according to one of the firm’s chief game designers.

Nintendo exec Katsuya Eguchi told Kotaku that Wii U’s proprietary disc format could carry enough data to fill a Blu-ray disc.

Elsewhere it is being reported that Wii U won’t be compatible with Blu-Ray.

According to Nintendo’s official Wii U spec sheet, the system features "a single self-loading media bay" that plays "12-centimeter proprietary high-density optical discs for the new console, as well as 12-centimeter Wii optical discs".
