It will be a total waste of effort for Nintendo to do that.

Why not? The virtual console service is making heaps of money. What do people do when they run out of Memory on a SD Card or better yet have 2 SD Cards but lose one?

A Hard drive is smart and I wish they had one already. Nintendo should at least let people use a external hard drive of their choice.

i thought it had a harddrive already...i guess i thought wrong...

Nintendo will release it when the time is right. Right now the time is not right - WiiWare won't be here till 2008 at the earliest.

I think now would be the perfect time.

With WiiWare's upcoming release those 512 MBs are going to get filled up pretty quickly.

Nintendo sells tons of nunchucks and classic controllers, so why not hard drives too?

Sounds like a standard copy and paste response, don't get your hopes up. All Nintendo need to do at least is allow stuff to run from SD Card. They don't necessarily need a harddrive either, as long as they have USB mass storage support, they could have their own USB pen drive if security is a concern. Either that or allow people to use their own USB harddrives. No need for them to actually release any hardware, just a software update would do. People can store stuff on SD card and transfer it to a PC anyway, so it's not like having a USB harddrive would increase the risk of piracy, it just makes it slightly more convienient.

lol, I disagree, after watching xboxes get hacked through hard drives to play games.
