Nintendo considering alternative storage for Wii

When I think about the shortcomings of the Nintendo Wii, there are really two that stand out. First, the way they've handled their online play is sub-par. The whole friends code just really doesn't cut it in this day and age. The other problem is the lack of internal storage. Sure, you can pop in an SD card, but that isn't a good enough solution for most game designers to take advantage of. Thankfully Nintendo may be looking into a solution for the latter issue.
