    Owners of Wii's realised that storage was an issue agggggeeeessss ago.

    Way to keep a finger the pulse Nintendo.
    Guess they were to busy playing with their Wiimotes.

    Little slow on the uptake, they seem.

    Close but not really. I get to work at 6:30 AM, and before I get started with the annoying crap, I check the morning posts. It's my way of procrastinating.

    Well at least this time they managed to make a comment without insulting the people who support the Virtual Console.

    Step 1 add a very small amount of memory to new system with no way of expanding it and add access to SD cards to fool people into thinking that they can expand it.

    Step 2 insult customers who make multiple purchases of downloadable games when they complain that they need more space.

    Step 3 rake in the money. ?!?!?!

    Aww :( 
    I though I had a stalker.

    As for the comment last time it was retracted and then it was shown to be taken out of context or something.

    What the heck is an Otaku? Sounds like a Decepticon weapon.

    Awwww, there there now. I'll make sure I make "First" on all your threads. I have TFW on my Iphone now (see Twin-Twist) and so it updates every once in a while, so I can see updates in threads, but I turn it off after the morning because it's annoying.

    There is an easy solution for this Nintendo...Allow shit to be loaded directly from SD cards and USB hard drives. Done.

    And this took them HOW LONG to find out about this? Jeez, Nintendo, you're losing your grip. Hell, I wouldn't mind if it was bought out by Microsoft right about now.

    Just means that we can get more GOOD Rareware games in the future.

    Exactly. Not that hard, Nintendo.

    That's the how Guitar Hero: World Tour is gonna work, with the SD cards at least. And Smash does that too.

    Every game should be able to do that, along with the ability to store and load Wiiware and VC titles directly from external storage devices. Having to make room on the flash system memory plain awful.

    They knew about this all along. Even before the Wii came out people were voicing their concerns.

    I expect them to release their own hard drive within the next 6 months.

    If they plan on doing that, wouldn't an E3 announcement have been in order? They had such a minimal showing that something like that would have brought the crowd to their feet.
