GDC ‘09: We Shall Clean The Fridge No More … Video of the Wii Storage Solved
GDC 2009: Satoru Iwata (Nintendo’s President) has announced their solution to the Wii’s pretty sad storage problem. As of this writing, you can now download firmware update 4.0 which adds support for SD card storage use. With this update, you can now download WiiWare and Virtual Console games directly to your SD card, as well as play the games directly off of the SD card. Along with the update, it also supports SD Cards up 32 gigs. That seems more than enough for people who are building up their Virtual Console library. It’s been long overdue, but it’s finally here and we can all rest easy the next time a large game becomes available to download. Hey dev’s… now we can start getting some game demos!
You can check out the video of the feature in action below.
