Nintendo: Only geeks want storage

NoE marketing manager hits out at storage space fans

Laurent Fischer, managing director at Nintendo of Europe, has dismissed concerns that Wii is quickly running out of storage space.

Speaking to Edge, Fischer "easily slipped into talking about how 'geeks and otaku' were the only people who would want this issue addressed."

Nintendo has consistently denied rumours and reports that it's even considering manufacturing a storage device, despite the growing amount of downloadable content demanding more space.

Even developers are struggling to produce games due to the limitation. Speaking with CVG, Rock Band designer Rob Kay answered the question over the lack of downloadable content for Wii with: "The whole problem is there's nowhere to store it. If the platform could do it, we'd jump on it."
