Nintendo Wii to get several new USB devices?

PC World believes Nintendo may be working on multiple USB devices for the Wii:
An official job listing at Nintendo of America suggests that multiple USB devices are on their way to Wii, this amid storage concerns for the console that lacks a hard drive.

The job opening, as posted on Nintendo.com three days ago, is for a "Software/Hardware Tester" that can create and execute a "test plan for Wii's USB devices." Nintendo has yet to publicly announce any USB devices for Wii, however, although the console supports the protocol.

The news comes as Wii owners struggle to manage downloadable content and games, given the console's limiting 512MB internal memory. Both the Xbox 360 and PS3 feature internal hard drives for mass storage.
