Apparently Nintendo Wii owners are up in arms about not having external storage for their console. That at least is what we were lead to believe by the number of news sources saying so. Frankly, we're not convinced that the vast majority of Wii owners give a nunchuk one way or the other.
Nintendo Europe’s marketing chief Laurent Fischer is savvier, however, he can 'detect' that gamers really, really want external storage. So can the rest of Nintendo. Fischer says that, "...it's something that we're working on."
So, storage is being worked on, only it will come in a magical way because, "Definitely there's no plan to issue hardware, an external hard drive, but we know that we have an issue in that area.
"It's very obvious and we're perfectly aware of it, but there's nothing we can say beyond this."
Of course it's not magic! It's either going to be online storage or Nintendo will increase the amount of storage available to to flash memory from the 512Mb currently achievable.
