    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.

    The Head sets out (in the US at least) and I wish they'd make a hardrive for the Wii so I could buy more VC games.

    just get some SD disk while you wait i picked up a few 2 gig cards for like 25 bucks each at staples a month back... more than enough memory for the VC games... and i can use it in everything else i have too... although the headsets a cool thing hopefully it will work its way onto the wii as well when online goes up...

    A headset for the Wii would be great!!! Surely they will eventually make a hard drive as well as there seems too much money to be made on it, people have been talking about it for awhile.

    You can play games from SD cards and you cant even download the game into a SD card so they suck.

    Nintendo might not be releasing an external hardrive but 3rd party companies are very interested in doing this along with an external dvd drive.

    it would b cool but i dont need 1 yet. 2 gig sd card with couple hundred songs and pix no video clips but the internal storage for the vc games isnt full either

    until they notice a large volume of users owning many vc titles (more then can fit on the wii internal storage) they are probably holding out

    or maybe when the have a video channel

    or a reason to fill the hard drive up in general

    but of course eventually they will have to make one




    Thats probably why they didnt release it yet. if they wait till the demand for an external harddive to be higher they will sell more units because they know 3rd party companies will copy them soon after.

    I'd be pissed off if that happened. Nintendo should just make it possible for us to play VC games off SD Cards. AND they need to reorganize our VC Games Channels. There should be a channel that says VC. IN that channel should be SUBchannels. One for each system. Its not that hard to create is it? And its common sense really. I hope someone has told them this. Maybe like 3 years down the line Nintendo can create a model with a Hard Drive but right now it would be ridiculous.

    I would not mind an upgraded hard drive wii now bought my wii on ebay for $350 after being tired of checking best buy, walmart and the rest for 2 months ....After I bought it I changed my mind and decided I don't want it anymore till i can go to the store and just grab my wii for $250 so I sold it back on ebay for $420.
