So i was watching Ninja Warrior today on G4 and every once in a while they'll post the latest news in entertainment and what not.
One that caught my eye said that nintendo is making No plays to make an External hard drive. that's the gist of it. I searched the internet and found an article confirming what i had seen

'Who needs it?'

Nintendo has once again put to bed suggestions that a Wii hard-disk could - and perhaps should - be in en route. In fact, the platform holder insists that despite gamers bemoaning the console's limited memory capacity, there is no need for game data to be stored within the Wii.
"The way that we look at it is, we really don't want people storing every single game they buy on their drive," responded Nintendo of America PR manager, Eric Walter.
"When you buy a game, it's yours forever, so you can delete it, and go back and get it at any time you want. In a way, we liken it to putting music on your iPod; you listen to it for a while, and then you get tired of it, and you pull it off, and you put some new stuff on."
Walter's answer is unlikely to appease the clamours, however, particular from gamers used to space issues related to multiple games, and of course Virtual Console downloads. Indeed, it seems likely that Nintendo are working on a larger storage solution, but given this PR chap's response, we'd say it's some way off.
I don't actually own an Ipod, but if i were to put my collection of music onto one
1) I would get one big enough for my collection and
2) i wouldn't delete it off. If i bought the CD, I LIKE THE SONGS. thus, i don't ever get tired of it. Why the hell would i want to keep re adding something whenever the mood strikes me anyways. Too much effort for me. It's there at all times, for whenever i DO feel like playing a game or music. Whenever i'm not in the mood for it, i know that it's there, waiting for me whenever i need my fix.
Comparing themselves to the Ipod was pretty much stupid. thats what i think.
Other than that, the Memory issue doesn't really bother me all that much (right now), but i know some of you on this forum have this issue. thought i'd post this for you guys.
