No need for Wii hard drive, says Nintendo (again)

Have you filled up your Wii's internal memory yet? We have and it's bloody annoying. But while we're all waiting for Nintendo to release a Wii hard drive, the reluctant games giant says there's no need to store all your games on your Wii. Again.

simply put I just dont have enough room for all the games i've downloaded any more, The wii only supports SD cards up to i think 4 gigs and thats not enough, I all so dont have enough room in my channels for them all.

Edit: The below poster...*idontthink* must not read either because i own an 60 gig ps3:)

And sony will never offer all the games and classics that the Wii will.

IdontTakeSides4869d ago

thats what you get for beign cheap...the PS3 will never have space issuses...

ChickeyCantor4869d ago

cheap got nothing to do with it, interest is a different story.

and being ignored by 16 people shows that your comments are nothing but worthless.

WilliamRLBaker4868d ago

And I should add....the ps3 wont have issues? So if I we're to downloaded every thing off psn the 40 gig ps3 wont have space problems? really? Because that 40 gig hard drive will fill up fast and i will then have to go out and buy a bigger one.

I kept emailing them about my space being full my wii is in repairs so now they can check omg the need to stop being hard headed they don't listen to anybody do they?

ChickeyCantor4869d ago

its nintendos way or the high way always been like that.
-_- just update the damn firmware!

This is the one thing that irks me about Nintendo's future plans. Having to redownload VC games after the [limited] internal space fills up is a usability nightmare.

If Nintendo sticks w/ this plan, then I think WiiWare is destined for failure. WiiWare titles will be limited to 512mb max (which I don't think is a big problem) but ppl will have to erase a lot of their VC titles in order to play them. Ludicrous.

IdontTakeSides: nice display of your maturity level. There's been a lot of trollish, off-topic, and inflammatory comments in the Wii section today. I guess ppl just love gettin their bubbles popped.

Having a hard drive will only open the doors to people being able to write programs that will bypass the "only for this wii" thingy Nintendo has going for VC games. In other words, they would lose control over these overpriced games and people will start getting them for free.

That's the only roadblock right now. Not demand, or "lack of need."

Very frustrating. While I see your point forum_crawler it still will stop a lot of VC sales when even the causal crowds Wii memory gets filled. With Neo Geo and N64 titles starting to pick up it only takes a few to tap it out. Contrary to what Nintendo believes people don't like the hassle of making room to get more games.

ItsDubC is right and it could hamper a lot of potential bigger projects for the WiiWare, not many I'm sure but XBLA got caught in that mess already and had to update it and make a whole new memory card just for that switch.
