I'm really surprised it was actually questioned. Iwata even made a comment about that long ago! o_O

They can always bind the retail copy a single console so that only that console can download a digital version and still make it so that you can share the game disc. Since the physical disc is already electronically bound to your system in tearms of digital download, your friend woudn't be anble to download a free copy. It could however, entice your friend to buy a digital version if they liked the game and want a copy for their own.
Heck, they could even make a whole rewards program bassed on this kind of practice. I think I just got a good idea .

I believe the max capacity of the disc format Nintendo is using is 30 GB.
AFAIK, Nintendo is putting 8GB of storage on the Wii U.
Correct me if these facts are wrong, but if they aren't, that doesn't make a lick of sense to me.
I know that not all games take up the maximum capacity of a disc, but with this setup, you could only download maybe one game to the built-in storage. Frankly, I don't see Nintendo forcing you to buy additional storage if you want to download even one game available at retail.
What this means to me is that they are planning for additional built-in storage.
