Wii storage solution allows playing games from SD cards

Software update, not hardware offering.

Nintendo finally revealed its long-awaited Wii storage solution Wednesday evening, and it was under our noses the entire time.

The "solution" will be a software update, not a hardware offering, and allows users to open up software directly from an SD card.

Users will also be able to download titles and other software directly to cards in the console's SD slot.

That means users will have upwards of 2GB per card swap, so start stocking up on 2GB cards now.

A Wii firmware update arrives with the change in Spring 2009, said Nintendo President Satoru Iwata.
