Nintendo dismisses Wii hard-disk talk
Nintendo has once again put to bed suggestions that a Wii hard-disk could - and perhaps should - be in en route. In fact, the platform holder insists that despite gamers bemoaning the console's limited memory capacity, there is no need for game data to be stored within the Wii.
"The way that we look at it is, we really don't want people storing every single game they buy on their drive," responded Nintendo of America PR manager, Eric Walter.
"When you buy a game, it's yours forever, so you can delete it, and go back and get it at any time you want. In a way, we liken it to putting music on your iPod; you listen to it for a while, and then you get tired of it, and you pull it off, and you put some new stuff on."
Walter's answer is unlikely to appease the clamours, however, particular from gamers used to space issues related to multiple games, and of course Virtual Console downloads. Indeed, it seems likely that Nintendo are working on a larger storage solution, but given this PR chap's response, we'd say it's some way off.
