A Nintendo of Europe Spokesperson has today spoke out over the recent murmurs of an external Wii hard drive labelling the reports "pure rumour and speculation".
The rumours emerged after Japanese gaming magazine Gamelabo claimed that Nintendo Japan executives had held a special meeting recently to discuss the addition of a new hard drive.
Nintendo did however confirm a new headset for the DS is in production. The headset will allow players to take part in online voice chats and is due to go on sale alongside Pokémon Diamond and Pearl in the US next month.
A European release date for the DS peripheral has not yet been confirmed.
