Nintendo isn’t going to force everyone to buy a Wii hard drive yet. In spring 2009 there is a plan to roll out an update which allows users to download WiiWare games directly to an SD card. The Gemaga live blog from Nintendo’s press conference in Japan doesn’t explicitly state you will be able to run games off SD cards. They mention “easier copying” as another new feature. But, how will downloading games directly to an SD card help if we can’t run them off the card?
