^ Does the USB hard drive support actually let you do that though? As far as I was aware it was treated as backup, ie if you wanted to run anything off it you'd have to transfer it to internal memory.

Which is, y'know, ridiculous. But Nintendo generally are fucking ridiculous when it comes to that kind of thing.
From what I've read it seems Mains Powered USB drives work to run the games off, USB flash drives, SD Cards and self powered USB work the way you mention.
