Nintendo says its "working on a solution" to Wii storage issue

We'd already seen some hints that Nintendo was working on adding USB devices to the Wii, which seemed to open up the possibility of USB storage devices, but Nintendo Europe's Laurent Fischer has now come out and dampened that notion while also opening up another option. As GamesIndustry.biz reports, he says that Nintendo is in fact "working on a solution" to the Wii storage issue, but that there are "definitely there's no plan to issue hardware," such as an external hard drive. As Joystiq notes, that would seem to indicate that the big N is working on a firmware update to allow downloaded games to be played directly off an SD card, but we obviously won't know for sure until the company decides to let a few more details slip. The possibilities are endless

If you can play them off a SD card, itll just make it easier to rip the game and put them online for free. That would kill the entire point of the Wii Point cards, and cost Nintendo money. If they lose money on it, theyll prolly stop releasing game for the VC, and the cycle will end with a Firmware update that remove the VC. Then a homebrew version of it will surface and the VC will be a fully homebrew project.

Well lets face it, there are people in this world who dont like to pay for things, correct? By making it easier for the Wii to read the games, that just makes it easier for someone to crack the coding, and unlock them. Once theyre unlocked, they can be upload to the internet, then downloaded by people, put onto a SD card, and played correct? That would mean theres no need to pay for them anymore, you can just download them for free. The same things happen with Emulators and ROMs, execpt this would be on a MUCH larger scale, considering it would be SO easy to do.

I hope this problem gets Solved.
Loading right of an SD card would be fine to me but it would Load very SLOW.... Yeah..
But if Big N can make it not that way I have no Prob w/loading off n SD card.
