    Hard Drive Rumors Once Again

    As logical as it may be for Nintendo to actually release an HDD for their Wii console, it seems that they just can’t make their minds up about it. One of our readers has become privy to some interesting information after contacting Nintendo’s service centre; asking about the device, and throwing in a Wii sensor bar extension cable for good measure.

    This is what the Nintendo Service Centre had to say...

    Dear Customer, thank you for your email.
    Nintendo do not offer a sensor bar extension or an external hard drive for the Wii, although these items may be available some time in the future.
    Kind regards,
    ***** *****
    Your Nintendo Team


    Yeah, it’s certainly not a confirmation, but it’s definitely not baseless either, especially considering Nintendo’s flat out denial of the existence of an HDD in the past. Chalk it up as more fuel for the rumour fire, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that this service rep knows what they’re talking about.

    Rather interesting news here, considering if there were no plans of adding a drive you think they would say that. But I guess they don't know really.

    Thoughts?

    meh...it sounds more like a generic answer they are paid to say . I asked them about online video games for gamecube...and that never happened. But we'll see. We need a HDD if they are going to release full length games on Virtual Console.

    If the Wii had a hard drive, I think the price of the Wii will rise.
    I wonder if any External Hard Drives work for the Wii right now...

    No, but I think an internal software update can make it so that USB drives can work with the wii. I so wish.

    Yeah but those are mainly Flash drivers, I mean like a real PC 200gig External Hard drive storage. That would be awesome on a Wii.
