Nintendo Wii Hard Drive on the Way?
We’re more than a little surprised that the Nintendo Wii didn’t come with a hard drive or even a DVD player, but since it’s so chock full of fun anyway, we decided to let it go. Now comes the rumor (again) that Nintendo will indeed introduce an external hard drive add-on, to be announced at E3 next month. What prompted this latest rumor is SNK’s announcement that some of it’s Neo-Geo games will become available on the Wii’s Virtual Console, in which “old-school” video games can be downloaded and played. The thing is, Neo-Geo games are megabyte-heavy, and will need serious storage space, more than the 512MB the Wii currently offers. Nintendo, of course debunks the entire theory, but what else are they gonna say? Hopefully, the answer to this and other burning questions about the Wii will be revealed at next month’s E3 conference.
