Here is what Nintendo has said about the Wii having a hard drive:
With a good portion of Virtual Console users starting to fill up their Wii’s built-in 512MB of Flash memory and even starting to store SD cards full of downloaded VC games, we expected Nintendo to announce a hard drive solution soon. Now, with the official announcement of WiiWare’s original game content coming next year, one would think a hard drive is now imperative. After all, original new games will likely be much larger than NES games in terms of size.
CVG asked a Nintendo UK correspondent about a hard drive, hoping to at least get a smile or something. Unfortunately, the response was a definitive “No.”
We only hope that employee just didn’t get the memo.
Thats it for now. I will be in Penticton until Tuesday though I will still be making blog posts.
