Nintendo updates the Wii Shop Channel to implement the long-awaited support for downloading directly to compatible SD memory cards. Also high capacity cards are now supported.
WIN NINTENDO. Just an absolute win. Now people cans stop complaining about the lack of storage. We'll most likely see Wii demos now. This is just too awesome. And we can buy 2 SD cards for a total of 64GB, so it will be just like a 360/PS3 hardrive. Thank you Nintendo.
Its just a shame 32GB SD cards cost an arm and a leg
Now they need to patch the dsi to support the same cards. You could then dl vc games and then pop them into the dsi. Now the doors are open for new gh and rb tracks on the wii.
Yeah, except buying 2 32gb sd cards costs the same as a 360 arcade unit.
32GB is expensive now, but give it a year...memory drops in price very fast. A year from now, you'll be able to get one for $30 (or so). Besides, right now you can get a 2GB card for $10. That's a good start.
Yeah, and with the Wii cost more than the PS3 with two 32GB cards...
In the staples near me they were selling 4GB cards for £7. Don't know if they are now though.
Seeing demos would be cool. No no one would buy DDI's games. (Laughs, then wonders if there are users with the name DDI_Must_Die). The update is pretty cool, even though I still have 900 blocks. Just imagine. Now High Voltage can delay The Conduit to make it support DLC. Just imagine map packs. Halleluia Nintendo!!!!!!!!!!
Finally we have a decent storage solution!
I dont see how people disagree with you, honestly. This is pretty much the BEST firmware update, to date.(for the Wii system that is)
For the hackers that run emulation and junk.
Now can Nintendo please increase the maximum file size for WiiWare games? It would be nice if we could see Animales released after all, and it would certainly give developers more to work with. Regardless, this is a pretty solid answer to demands for more storage space.
