Really, if Nintendo wasn't going to build a hard drive to solve the space problems of the Wii, what better way to fix it then to use the SD slot that's available on every Wii out there? Well, come Spring an update
will let you store and play games off the SD card. Not only that but you'll be able to download them straight to your SD card. There is a 2GB limit though so if you have more than 2GB of stuff you'll have to have a few cards on hand. Too bad it's not going to be due out for another six months or so.
