Now I can lose these new SD cards easier than the memory cards!

I hope there is a hard drive

my samsung e900 uses sd cards. There pretty cool. Real small though. If they held enough memory so that would never have to take it out, then fine, but a bigger card would be easier not to lose and hard drive would be most idle. Nintendo is trying to make the wii cheap though, that's the thing. And SD cards are real cheap. So it has good and bad things about it

I always find it weird to see opinion pieces reminiscing about a time when the article's author wasn't even alive to see it. This "switch" to profit over creativity in the industry started way back in the NES era when Nintendo controlled the number of games each publisher could release in a given time. This, in turn, made publishers carefully choose what was going to be released.

Things only really got better with the 3DO and later PlayStation, which changed how licensed games were handled. That improvement more or less lasted a generation and a half. By the time of the Xbox 360, we had another enormous cash cow trend in the form of the "casual audience." Since then, there has always been this chase for the next biggest thing to maximize profit.

It's not new; it's been going on for more than ten years now. And it's not going to stop when we have the production costs of the industry going higher and higher.
