No Wii Hard Drive. Period. (For Now?)
Posted by Sammy Barker
Since the launch of the Wii there have been concerns of memory shortages and most of the Internet community seems to have expected the announcement of a hard drive for some time now.
Nintendo have today squashed the rumours once again however, talking with Play.tm they said:
“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.”
While I totally see where Nintendo are coming from I sense that downloading, deleting and then re-downloading feels a little longwinded for my liking.
Maybe the imminent launch of WiiWare will change Nintendo's mind.
