USB slots

So, does anyone know what Nintendo planned to do with the two USB slots on the back of the console?

I do not if this is official but there is said to be a USB Hard Drive that will be compatible for the Wii that you place in there.

Also, you can place a Wii-Mote in charger in the USB port, a Keyboard to send messages and use internet channel and even run homebrew through a USB device.

Yes, but are any of those things official from Nintendo? The keyboard might be, but I'm not sure about anything else.

There is no official keyboard, just a plain USB keyboard. Also, the Wii mote charger are from different developers not Nintendo. The only information on the Hard Drive is it is a suspended project. There has been no news on who will devolpe it or when it will be continued.

PK2 is an unknown quantity at this point

Well, I use mine for charging my iPod ^^;
But it's also used for a Keyboard, the Rock Band Instruments and Guitar Hero/Rock Band Mic, as well as WiiSpeak. Homebrew-wise, you've got Memory Sticks... I think. But you can't really use those outside of HBC.

... i think they were put in just as a sort of "just in case we want to add something" sort of thing...

.. if im correct, wii-speak hooks up to it... lol.. not that it matters, im not gonna buy that piece of ****...



.. also, third party companies make keyboards and such for the wii.. those are actually pretty nice..
