Nintendo Wii won't get a hard drive

Nintendo claims it won't release a hard drive for the Wii console because in their vision it's not necessary:
"The way that we look at it is, we really don't want people storing every single game they buy on their drive," said NOA PR manager, Eric Walter.

"When you buy a game, it's yours forever, so you can delete it, and go back and get it at any time you want. In a way, we liken it to putting music on your iPod; you listen to it for a while, and then you get tired of it, and you pull it off, and you put some new stuff on."

Yes Walter. But transferring songs between your PC and iPod takes seconds, not minutes, as Wii does per game. And copying VC games to an SD Card takes even longer than deleting and re-downloading them, would you believe it?
