Well, so much for the double USB hard drive. CVG recently spoke with Nintendo about the peripheral, and they declared it to be purely “rumor and speculation”.
Yeah, it would have looked nice, fitting perfectly to the Wii, but it is unnecessary. SD cards are so much cheaper than hard drives, and some of them contain more storage space than you would even joke about needing. Just hold out for the update that was promised to come, which will allow gamers to load files and games directly from SD cards.
In the meantime, do what I do: delete Virtual Console and WiiWare games that you never really play (you know you don’t play all of them!) and make room for more.
