Nintendo is "Looking Hard" at a Storage Solution For Wii

Endsights writes:

Reggie Fils-Aime: "We have said publicly that we're looking hard at the storage situation, that we're working on a range of solutions. We have nothing to announce now. But certainly it's an issue we are aware of and we're working to find a solution and we will."

The lack of a storage solution announcement was just one of many disappointing aspects of Nintendo's 2008 E3, but from what Fils-Aime said, appears to be getting a solution shortly.

is that a hard drive will raise the price of the wii. Or their margin of profit will drop hard with the inclusion of a HHD.

nintendo always drags there feet about stuff. look how long it took them to get voice chat in the system, and it's gimped.

...and how is it gimped....cuz it's for a nintendo console...or did you somehow get hands on time with the wii-speak peripheral?..

thewesker3739d ago

that drummer guy was hilarious wasn't he?...From my understanding the mic is perfectly capable of picking up your voice without sticking your head up to it.That's actually what I like about it more wearing a headset :)

thats pretty cool, sucks that animal crossing wont support it though... 0_0 not.. that Im gonna buy that game or anything

nintendojunkie283739d ago (Edited 3739d ago )

Animal crossing supports it...wii-speak was announced alongside animal crossing at e3.

poopsack3739d ago

I heard it didnt, kewl.

That picture of Reggie creeps me out....

Anyways, the majority of Wii gamers are just casual gamers and don't really even need a hard drive, but I think that a 8GB-16GB hard drive for the Wii will probably be sufficient enough because the game files on the Wii shouldn't be that big at all and it's not like games have mandatory installs.
