    ACTUALLY, some 4 gig sd cards do work

    Really? I've heard that it maxes out at 2 gigs. I still haven't seen a 4 gig SD card either that says "Wii compatible". Do you have a link or something?

    I've got an 8gb flash drive

    I wish i could actually watch movies, half way through it says wii memory is full.... Couldnt they provide an update that allows you to send the memory to ur SD card instead?

    The Wii costs $250, it was meant for gaming not for multimedia. VC games are really small, you could fit alot of games in just a 1GB SD Card. I think the internal harddrive is like 512 Megs, which is more than enough for saved games.

    External HD would be the last thing on the list, Nintendo needs to focus on improving online, getting some headsets, and getting some more hardcore 3rd party games. Unless you guys just want to watch movies and music. But if you guys wanted that, then Wii wouldn't have been so cheap. \

    A lot of people buy huge amounts of VC games and that is beginning to add up, and with Wiiware coming there is no question we need a hard drive. (Plus you can't play VC games of an SD card)

    isn't that the WHOLE POINT of the sd card slot, to put vc games on, incase you run out of menu space or memory?

    I was under the impression that SD Cards were meant for the games and photos. Whenever I see people buying the Wii they're telling them that they're gonna need SD Card if they plan on downloading VC games. But since I never tried myself I dont know for sure, but it would be kind of retarted if you cant...

    just because people are going to buy them does not mean they are going to suck...

    Also, these items would not take the time or the money to produce like a wii so there would be a much higher possibility of finding one...

    Another thing i dont know how many of you pay attention to pretty much all the news coming out of nintendo but SSBB is going to have a huge amount of downloadable content from both nintendo and other users i see my already filled to the max internal memory crying because of this. Also Animal Crossing is going to be an MMO so right there means its going to take up alot of space for a save file and there will have to be downloadable content. SD cards are a very inconvient thing to keep up with and not very big i would love to hook up a 500 gig MyBook to the back of my wii to know that i will never have to delete another file. But alas, this will probably not happen but the least they could do is sell us a Hard drive of atleast 20 gigs that would be enough for a while.

    At the current rate of VC games coming out filling a 20 gig hard drive with just those would take less that 2 to 3 years and i pray to god the wii lasts longer than that and we all know it will.
