    its sad that nintendo doesnt think we need one. but i personnally am not going to dwel on this. i dont care to much as long as nintendo can bump up the sd card so that we can save directly to it.

    wow. why the helll does ninty think i would rather delete my games and go back to download them again if i wanna play em later, instead of just saving everything i want to the system. And how can they say its in the likeness of an ipod? the ipod has 80 mb of space for a reason. so you dont have to delete to replace. ninty sounds pretend damn retarted there.

    when you download stuff, they should have a check box whether to download onto your sd card or not :O

    My Dad bought a Terabite hard drive the other day...

    $400

    P.S for those who do not know 1 Terabite= 1000 Gigabites

    and for people who talk in music capacity, that's 300,000 songs

    I'll say exactly what I said in the other Hard Drive thread...

    What a liar this guy from Nintendo is. Mine forever, huh? I had to get rid of my original Wii a while back, and just recently purchased a new one. Now, I have to re-download (and BUY again) all of the VC games that I had originally purchased. Why? Because the VC games that you buy are linked to the Wii that you bought them on. That has got to be the most stupid thing I have ever heard of. I've gone through three Xbox 360s, and I've been able to re-download all of my purchased content without any problems every single time. How is that? Because the purchase data is linked to my online account, not the console.

    Nintendo really needs to step up and get their act together. Come on now. Why in the name of god would you link a purchase to a console? They have you link your Wii to your Nintendo online account anyway, so they should just link all of your purchases to that account, as well. My Nintendo online account even still shows all of the VC games that I had originally purchased on my first Wii, yet even after linking this new one to my Nintendo online account they are still not re-downloadable for free - I have to buy them all over again. Very annoying, very frustrating, very sad.

    To get back on topic - 512MB of internal memory is nothing. Most people don't have to wipe their songs off of their iPods because most people have REAL iPods that have REAL hard drives in them. I highly doubt that most people have more than 30-160GB of MP3s. Sorry to keep bringing up the Xbox 360; but, my 360 has a 120GB hard drive and it's already about 3/4 of the way filled. I love downloadable content and games. That's what the hard drive is there for, and I absolutely take full advantage of it. Nintendo really needs to wake up and come out with a Wii that has a hard drive, or come out with a hard drive attachment for the existing Wii. The 120GB hard drive upgrade for the Xbox 360 is currently $179.99 I believe; but, I wouldn't mind paying $149.99 for a 120GB (or thereabouts) hard drive attachment for the Wii.

    Also, give us more pages for the these VC games! On my old Wii I had almost all of the pages full with VC games - it was ridiculous. Now there are even MORE games out that I want to get. There just isn't enough real estate for all of these games; and, deleting them, IMO, is a very poor solution to this situation.

    Sorry for such a long post, everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the read, though. :)

    making us delete everything to add new things is stupid. why dont i just a internet browser on my computer and delete it everytime im done using it. why even give us 512mb of memory. just give us room for onesave game and one vc game why dont you. is somebody going to start a petition on this anytime soon.
