A Nintendo official in the U.K. said there was no plan for a hard drive in the aftermath of the “Wiiware” announcement.
“No” was the succinct response given to CVG staff when they asked a Nintendo official whether the company will release a hard drive for the Wii.
The console currently sports a meager 512MB of internal flash memory, which stores the classic-themed virtual console games from the company’s online store.
The recent announcement of “WiiWare,” a game-creation platform enabling develoers to build new downloadable games, is also likely to help fill the flash memory to the brim.
Rumors of a Wii hard drive have been floated in advance of this year’s E3.
