EqualOpportunityFanboy.com attempts to figure out why Nintendo hasn't released a hard-drive add-on for their best-selling Wii console, and gets a little worked up while doing so.
The wii cant handle a HDD due to its inferior hardware.
You don't know much about hardware, do you?
hehe, he's reveling in your anger :O
I think the Gamecube era hardware selling for $250 would be sign enough that Nintendo doesn't give a damn about giving consumers value or modern features.
I can see how the wii could at most cost 150, but why does this old technology, that has been around for 7 years cost 250??? The remotes?!?!?! I hardly doubt that, good they are asking way to much money for something that they can produce so cheaply for themselves. Also on that point, why cant they make enough???
Value is 400 to 600 dollars when the other systems came out in fall 06... It may be value to many hardcore gamers but it's not for the casual crowd.
...if I used to play it. (the wii is more of a party activity at my house)
The average Wii owner won't even use up half of the Wii's internal memory..cuz they don't buy alot of games other than..the crappy 1st party games...and GH3...
You forgot to add 1.5 million virtual console game downloads to what the internal memory is holding. http://www.gamasutra.com/ph... (6th paragraph under title)
the only reason i am not selling it yet is because of the Wii Mario Kart..
How could nintendo miss something so crucial when designing the Wii. Somethings up...i hope I will admit, i really only bought the system for Nintendo's solid gold 1st party titles....and maybe a few surprises.....
Satoru Iwata does not like HDD's. He probably wants their next console to be cartridge based as well.
Yea i have been a huge fan of Nintendo, even during the Gamecube era... I'm really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really disappointed in the Wii, it's seriously a POS. I got it on launch day and played Twilight princess, which was pretty good. And then didn't purchase a game for a whole year till Mario Galaxy... & then the unthinkable happened... I lost interest in a Mario game.... I have beat EVERY mario game that has ever come out (on console not handheld)... And I cannot drive myself to turn that Wii when I get home...
Bah so much Nintendo Haters! Listen Wii doesn't need to improve it self cause it stands out as an Original! Being mad at the Wii cause it wont play dvd is silly! All if not most households own some form of DVD player! PS3 60 Gb=PS2 Greatnes! PS3 extra GB no BC, or 60%! Yet the wanna support PS til they die! True Gamers luv great games period! No matter what the system says! So before they talk smack about Wii, think about this if Wii truly sucks why is it taking care of business? Also Sony & M$ milk their customers as well! Just reality check!
But I seriously don't understand why Nintendo hates hard drives so much, that they won't release one? Copyright fears? Nintendo produces great games, but they need to grow a little in today's market. No online speech because they need to "protect" their customers and no hard drive because of... err, copyright problems, or just plainly because they hate it? The hardware FINALLY supports USB keyboards. That's good, but how did it take to get it? And how look did it take to even get online? This (plus ridiculous fees), is what killed Nintendo in the past... I really must ask them if they learned a lesson? Truly?
