I've seen in this forum several times ppl saying Wii is like a kind of prototype to see how the console should really be made (something like the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite) so I'm, kinda worried about it, cause it really pissed me off when I found out there was a DS Lite and now every accessory is made for it and not to fit in the actual DS, appart from the price drop the DS had when the Lite version came out, so I think it would be really annoying if Nintendo made us spend 250 bucks (447 in my case, I live in Chile) just to experiment and then release a new console that would cost us the same price again, or even higher.
I just would like to know how possible this could be, if any of you know =P
EDIT: If you think about it, it could be possible, because I think the Wii is really lacking in some aspects, and I don't mean graphics, but the absence of a hard-drive, those reboot-like loadings when you come out of a channel, that sort of delay for the wiimote and the feeling that you're not really connected to everyone else, as it is supposed to be. Luckily, most of these matters are fixable via updates, but with the Wii limited 512mb of internal memory I don't know how much they can improve this.
They should create something to make the SD cards more of an extension of the memory, you could be able to load saved games from it and play VC games stored on it too, it just feels like a backup of some kind, not a real memory extension, if you know what I mean.
