    Ok im hearing that Third Party devs wont be able to support SD cards? Does that mean they cant MAKE sd cards or their files cant be saved onto it, would it save on the Wii?
    And this really sucks that you have to save VC games onto a SD card, that crushed my heart cause i would have to spend like 40 bucks on top of the games

    people calm down, I hate when people get to critical. Let the Wii get its self prepared! When the Wii is fully ready it will give us all plenty of fun.

    The specs said there's 512MB of internal memory, so I'm guessing the VC games will be saved there. I doubt Nintendo'll force gamers to buy extra SD memory cards inorder to play the VC. Unlike Sony who basicly forces you to buy their crappy memory cards ($25 for 8MB... I got 1GB[1028MB] SD card for $30) so you can save your game.

    hey

    @Sovieto: I think it means that developers won't be able to access the SD Card from their software/games. I would assume they can use the Wii's 500MB storage instead.

    I quote things I have said in the other thread about this SD Card issue, see HERE.

    They also announced that the Wii will be compatible with an external HDD. I was planning on getting one once I get the Wii. Never have to buy another memory card again! It's also one of those things that could propell Nintendo above the other next-gen consoles - No in-built hard drive means removable and upgradable storage. I'll try and find an article that confirms this (although I'm already pretty damn sure...)

    Source: http://www.joystiq.com/2006/03/29/nintendo-revolution-to-support-external-hdds-and-other-3rd-party-s

    I realise that the article is quite old, but since there has been no denial of the possiblity of an external HDD compatibility, I think it's fairly safe to assume it will support it. Especially since otherwise, those two USB ports will probably go to waste.

    well if nintendo conferms that they are gonna allow the use of external hard drives (other than the ones they make) for game saves and VC conetent, here is an 80 gig external USB HDD for only $75
