Nintendo Working On USB Devices – HDD Possible?

Although it falls way short of being an official confirmation of the fact, a recent ad on Nintendo’s job page hints at a possible USB storage solution appearing fairly soon.

The job spec is as follows:

CONTRACT - Software/Hardware Tester

Description of Duties

  • Creating and executing a test plan for Wii’s USB devices
  • Executing test plans with great attention to detail and documenting bugs
  • Writing test procedure documents, gathering, and learning required software/hardware
  • Reproducing bug reports and helping find work-arounds or resolutions

Obviously the bit we’re interested in is in bold. This at least confirms that Nintendo is working on USB-type devices – although it’s worth bearing in mind that it could mean ANYTHING that is USB-enabled, not necessarily storage solutions.
