I'm loving the ability to download Wii U games and store them on an external USB hard drive. No need to go to the store to buy them, no need to deal with a bunch of discs, and the games load faster than they would from a disc.
Before I keep buying all my games digitally from the Wii U store, however, I want to make sure that if my hard drive dies I won't lose all the money I spent on games.
If the external hard drive attached to my Wii U dies and I replace it with a new one, can I re-download all the games I had previously paid for at no cost? Or do I have to buy them again?
