*Rumor* Wii U Cloud Storage details

This rumor is not one that is hard to believe but would be good news if it turns out true:

- Cloud Storage available on Wii U starting in early 2013
- 512 MB of online storage for every user
- Storage tied to each Nintendo Network profile
- Exclusively for save games and player profile data
- Launching in Japan first
- Supposedly working with Seattle, WA-based Mozy, Inc.to handle this
- Nintendo approached Mozy May 2010 but work started in late 2011
- Cloud storage to be integrated into Wii U channels


I think this would work great for Nintendo if they implement it right. Steam is a perfect example of getting Cloud Storage right in my opinion. Let's hope Nintendo follows suit.
