    tbh i don't see why the wii would need one, i mean you can delete games you already bought(virtually that is) and dl them later on absoloutly free, i'd be happy without the hard drive and my money, and i can use my sd card from my cell if i ever do need space

    I think as stated before a firmware update to remove the 2GB limit would be nice also maybe to add support for 3rd party HDD, for example I have a 160GB USB HDD sitting there going to waist as I should use it but I simply donít.

    160GB would be more than enough to support downloadable content and VC downloads.

    But you then also have the issue of making 100% of them compatible.

    But I think at some point this will have to happen as Nintendo has to realise that 512MB is simply not enough for downloadable content updates/patches and save games.

    Exactly what I was going to say.

    Like others have said, I'd be fine without a hard drive if the SD was actually made useful and worthwhile. Right now, it's only good as a cumbersome, handicapped backup method at best.

    Have it linked seamlessly with the on-board 512MB so that game saves, channels, VC games, etc are all transparently saved to the total memory pool, and remove the 2GB limit, and there's no need for a hard drive.

    Im not really sure if you need to believe the UK spokesperson. A lot of times those people dont even know whats going on because of all the secret things.

    Furthermore @ Brad Bishop:

    Look at all the "items" you use in youre argument. Almost any of them have got completely no use. A ps2 mouse....Gamecube adapter ( for only 1 or 2 online games ) snes mouse....

    Of course those things dont sell :P A wii harddrive on the other hand.... Even I might buy it when that demo channel comes out

    Ok - name some add-ons, that were required for gameplay, that did sell well and were well supported.

    The closest I can think of are the Wii Nunchucks and Classic Controllers.

    Um, 2GB SD cards are electrically different than 4GB cards. Not all SD slots support 4GB cards. If you look at most PDA's and cameras, they run into this issue too.

    My guess is that N saved a few bucks by using the older SD circuitry.

    I read some articles today where nintendo was denying it, calling the harddrive idea a rumor. Hopefully, they are just keeping it on the downlow to suprise us at E3. Or maybe they will wait until its closer for the wiiware. We must have more space though.

    Then a BIOS update to alter the voltage would work, I really doubt there going to be that much different most port are like 3-5mAmps.
