Nintendo Working On USB Devices – HDD Possible?
Posted by Damien McFerran
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.
