Well.. Nintendo has a reputation for denying stuff they are bringing out soon after.. it'd make sense to back up a 'lie' with good reasoning -- and remember, she is leaving nintendo, so its possible she is even out of the loop

 

EDIT: Alternatively, it's also possible it's still not coming


Except, Smash proves it's coming...


 Are we talking about SD card or external HD?


There's SD saving seen in pic one. Pic two is mysterious. It has a blurred out pink box at the bottom. Might be some external storage thing.

Joke or no joke you deserve a huge punch any way...

I'm happily married and know my wife ALWAYS seems to know what's up. If you can't take a joke, you got a problem.

OT: It is about time we get more space. I'm worried what WiiWare will do to my space...

First of all, this is in no proof of USB storage. It's a file system driver which powers SD cards (and likely the internal memory), and a (possibly independent) USB host driver.

Second, this driver apparently supports SDHD cards above 2GiB, which may be the only point addressed in an eventual firmware upgrade, if such an upgrade is all it takes. However, 32GiB SDHD cards have just started to become available, which I'd say is plenty enough for the Wii.

Finally, supporting off-the-shelf SD cards and/or USB pens/disks, for things like storing VC games is more of a philosophical issue than a technical one. Such games can already be backed up to SD cards (and from there to your computer). They are encripted however, to prevent piracy, and probably aren't encripted in the internal memory. It is unlikely that games will ever be stored unencripted in an external storage device, except maybe if it's a Nintendo proprietary solution... maybe. Running games directly from encripted external storage, can lead to much larger game-loading times, so I wouldn't put much faith in that.



Reality has a Nintendo bias.

Ah, KruzeS explained it best.



did homelesscarl get banned for that "joke" by any chance?

On topic, this sounds pretty cool, i need more memory already! and Wiiware aint even out yet!



Off-topic: You should never insult women, not even in jokes. NEVER.

On-topic: Wait... wasn't this supported already? But is good to see that they can add support for bigger and faster SD cards. Just as I told you, via a firmware upgrade.



Im thick. :/

In english does this mean we'll be able to play VC games straight from the SD card?
