    haha, i really hope you will be able to upload mp3s on the wii via the USB ports. i know for games like excite truck, you can listen to music will playing if its on yoru SD card. i understand that nintendo is strictly about gaming, but now that everything does EVERYTHING nowadays, it wouldnt have been so much of a concussion to nintendo for them to add some basic media components, since they make so much $$$ off of every wii sold. by the end of they year, they're gonna break even!

    Here's what I was told. Nintendo plans on allowing a USB keyboard, and headset in the future (No idea when). Because it's Nintendo, expect other unique USB devices. Possibly something like Donkey Kong USB drums.

    Why would you want to connect a headset directly to the console when you could plug it into your Wii-mote? Kind of destroys the wireless enviroment right? Let's hope they can come up with something more interesting like a USB host controller. Then you could plug almost anything to the console

    or you could not plug it into anything and use blue tooth they would just need a driver cd or a firmware update with the headsets

    I would like to see you code an mp3 player from scratch in 2 hours.

    I am currently using one of them to power my USB Christmas Tree. It looks quite nice on top of the Wii.

    The following is ALL speculation,

    Headsets - That would be dumb not to use the bluetooth (as mentioned above)

    Hard drive - Simple firmware upgrade. Most USB hard drives / pen drives use thier own drivers, the Wii just needs mass storage device drivers. They could also just upgrade with propriatary drivers and force you to use a Nintendo drive, though I see that getting hacked quite easy and dont think they will go that way.

    Added features - Remember Nintendo saying you could add characters and levels and such to games? Imagine going to the store to buy the Twilight Princess expantion. You might get a usb pen drive to pop in the Wii before you load the game. It then uses the updated/added info to add features to the game.

    That idea sounds cool at first, then I start to think about it. I already payed $50 for Zelda. Then they tell me that what I bought is not the whole game, and I can get the rest for $20? Forget that. I want the whole thing when I buy it the first time. Make it 2 CD's if you have to, but I don't want any add ons to a game.

    Have you ever been to Wal Mart, Tacos? If you have, go back to the Xbox360 section and look at the display. There is a place where you can stick your memory card to unlock extras to your game for FREE. They could quite possibly do that with USB drives or SD cards, it all just takes time.
