Nintendo is seen as the baby brother of systems, compared to the PS3 and XBOX360. What solutions do you think Nintendo needs to make to make their fans happy?
One of my solution will solve the Wiiware & VC solution.
Nintendo is always be left out of old time games, that comes with fixed glitches and even online play. One example i'll use is Marvel vs Capcom 2. A Capcom spokeperson actually came out and said that due to the limitation size of the Wii it's not possible to bring this game to the Wii. Now a lot of people would agrue that the Wii has a storage solution, but sadly that solution copies the game to the internal memory. Now nothing is wrong with this solution, but what the Wii has to do now is to allow the default and any additional channel to be added to the SD or SDHC card. Therefore this is will open up the internal memory to a full 512mb. By doing this, Nintendo can allow bigger sizes for the their Wiiware files.By doing this we won't be missing out any games, like Marvel vs Capcom 2 or the remade Street Fighter 2 Turbo
If there is anything wrong with my solution, i would like to hear your thoughts or if you have a better or other solution.

simply put, i think an external hard-drive system would be a simple solution, but i doubt it will happen anytime soon

To be perfectly honest, the less like the PS3 and XBOX the Wii is, the better. Gaming in general has moved in directions that don't interest me; Nintendo has managed to keep my enthusiasm fresh.
The ironic thing is that as much as XBOX and PS fans pick on poor little Nintendo, THEIR consoles seem to want to emulate Nintendo's success...not the other way around.
The Wii (and Nintendo in general) appeals to a certain set of gamers, but it appeals to that set very strongly. I say let it go.

Nintendo did not limit file sizes for Wiiware by accident.....
Hardcore, casual = marketing. The real divide is between arcade and narrative games.

Dont you think if NIntendo offered what a huge amount of fans are asking for, would attract more people to buy a Wii? They would get a taste of both worlds, A new way of playing and old way. Bringing classic titles to the Wii that are hitting up PS3 and X360 would only benefit the Wii. One example to look at is Mega Man 9, or even Guitar Hero. Both titles that came to the Wii and got the most sales from them. Now Wii gets every single Rock Band and Guitar Hero, because everyone own a Wii.

Well, define "fans." Nintendo is certainly giving a portion of gamers exactly what they want already. Aren't those gamers fans?
And I agree that PS3 and XBOX have some great games that you can't get on the Wii, but I don't think that's Nintendo's decisions. It has to do with game developers not wanting to port it, or exclusivity contracts. I'm sure Little Big World would be great on the Wii. Ditto Katamari. But it's not Nintendo preventing them from being ported.

A huge amount of fans? WiiWare fans are a pretty small percentage of Nintendo's audience, and the best selling titles are generally fairly small in size. I think having limitations is good. Forces the developer to focus on the action instead of frills.
Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.
