    No external hard disk for the wii.

    Every story about ninty getting a hd out for the wii was just rumor and speculation, and is not true. This came from Nintendo itself.

    omg, look further then your nose is long please. Scroll down vor 2.1231234 seconds and you'll find, I quote:

    After speculation, Nintendo have announced that the so called external hard drive was “pure rumour and speculation” and they have no plans to release such a device.

    This of course is bad news, especially since they plan to release demos that will be available to download. Will 512MB really last the life of the Wii, I don’t think so, I have a 2GB SD Card in mine but how long is it going to be until that is full too?

    Buy a 2GB SD card just for the game demos, should they come ( which I really hope they do - its great to play before you buy ).

    When the OP said HD he ment "HARD DRIVE" not High Def.

    I'd love to see the Wii take more advantage of the SD card slot.... we can only hope they will start using that more.

    Well it's their loss, now we'll just have to wait until someone comes up with working USB drivers so we can simply plug in our USB memory sticks or external drives instead of paying Nintendo for an official HDD.

    Most people already knew the Wii doesn't have HD, way to be late on the news!

    Also from the looks of it your source sucks, sorry.

    HD are for idiots, since when did true gamers base their views on games by the graphics. Don't judge a book by it's cover people. Look at super mario, best game ever. Look at halo worst game ever. USE YOUR HEADS!


    -BTW wii can go 580i ED with a cable.

    You mean HD "is" for idiots?

    Graphics are important, no matter what you think video games will always be visual first thus the video. They're not important as gameplay, but they are important and can really add to the experience.

    Also Halo is nowhere near the worst game ever, there are plenty of worse games such as ET, Superman 64, and Big Riggs. Besides Halo isn't that bad, infact it's good, don't hate because they overate.

    USE YOUR HEAD

    Pffft. I'll admit that Super Mario Bros. is fun, but I won't agree that Halo was the worst game ever... I loved Halo and Halo 2. It was a great game.

    I don't have an HDTV so I don't care much about HD systems right now... but graphics do matter.

    Wii > Atari 2600

    That's a pretty laughable opinion..regardless of whether you're referring to high definition graphics on games or high definition t.v./home movies it's far from overrated. High definition is taking visual stimulus and the overall experience of gaming/movies to a whole new level. By 2009 all t.v. stations are going to be required to record and film with hd cameras, standard definition will cease permanently..the dawn of crystal clear imagery and a much more pristine optical experience awaits us.

    Ummnn yeah Nfanboy I'm gonna ask you to stop talking for awhile cuz u sound like an annoying, bratty, 9 year old crying about how graphics don't matter. They do matter to me but not as much as gameplay does. That being said I wouldn't have minded the Wii having HD capabilities. But does it kill me that it doesn't? NO. 480p is alright with me. Hopefully next time around Nintendo will improve in that area. Really you need to calm down...a true fan knows when to critique their company when it deserves it. In the graphical department the Wii is just not as strong as the other console 360 and the machine (PS3). Simple as that...
