Have you filled up your Wii's internal memory yet? We have and it's bloody annoying. But while we're all waiting for Nintendo to release a Wii hard drive, the reluctant games giant says there's no need to store all your games on your Wii. Again.
"The way that we look at it is, we really don't want people storing every single game they buy on their drive," said NOA 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."
Yes Walter. But transferring songs between your PC and iPod takes seconds, not minutes, as Wii does per game. And copying VC games to an SD Card takes even longer than deleting and re-downloading them, would you believe it?
We're worried about how big the original games coming to the new WiiWare Channel (Wii Software) next year will be, but Walter says it won't be a problem.
"A lot of the games for WiiWare that have been submitted so far are smaller in size, so they're not gonna take up a ton of your drive," he told Gamasutra.
