Infendo Reader, Marc did a little reconnaissance concerning the current state of Wii storage space. Normally questions of this sort are answered with Nintendo’s default, “We have not announced any such things at this time”, but lucky Marc must have caught Nintendo on a good day.
We appreciate your feedback regarding the Wii console. At this time, we haven’t heard of any plans to offer a way to expand the memory capabilities of the system. I will, however, be happy to pass along your e-mail to the appropriate department for further review.
If we announce plans in the future for an external storage device (such as a USB drive or an external hard drive), or a way to save to, or transfer data from, an SD Card, we’ll be sure to post this information to our website (www.nintendo.com). Be sure to check our site often for all the latest Nintendo news.
Thank you for your e-mail.
Nintendo of America Inc.
It’s still not a confirmation by any means, but it at least confirms that Nintendo is thinking about the subject. I don’t see an external hard drive coming, but support for flash drives, and external USB drives looks to be a strong (and easy) solution.
