“Consumers have the option of either deleting the game and downloading it again for no additional Wii Points, or transferring the game from Wii to external SD memory card.” – Tom Prata, senior director of project development of NOA

It’s confounding as to why Nintendo provides such a plain answer about a hard drive. WiiWare has been released, which means only a few titles will be able to be on the system at once. If Nintendo continues to develop more WiiWare channels and plans on launching more WiiWare and Virtual Console games, how can they honestly believe consumers will be satisfied? Fans are going to reach a saturation point soon, so this is a pressing issue which needs to be addressed.
