Wii Storage Problem…

Hate to say it Nintendo, but just about everyone “told you so”…

Gizmodo UK : Wii Storage Problem ‘Urgent’ Admits Nintendo

At least now you’re admitting there’s a problem, instead of the year of plugging your ears and saying “la-la-la we can’t hear you… no there is no storage problem… no we won’t add a hard drive accessory to the Wii”.

“We have said publicly that we’re looking hard at the storage
situation, that we’re working on a range of solutions. We have nothing
to announce now. But certainly it’s an issue we are aware of and we’re
working to find a solution and we will. We have a consumer base who
loves virtual console. We have a user base who really is enjoying
WiiWare content.

So for us really our challenge really is how do we satisfy all
these consumers who are loving all of the product we make available on
a download basis? As we continue to have things, as you point out, like
‘Mario Kart’ that has its own channel when you’re playing from an
Internet perspective, we’re just making this challenge tougher and
tougher. So in our view this is becoming much more of a mainstream
problem, which is why we have a sense of urgency to solve it.”

So, if its such an urgent thing to fix the storage problem now, why wasn’t it a year ago when everyone was saying that it really is a problem? That and if they aren’t going to add a hard drive, what else could they do? Maybe make use of the SD-Card slot and finally allow people to play games off their SD cards?
