    Nintendo patents hard drive

    Nintendo Investigating Wii Hard Drive System // Siliconera

    P.S.: Don't know if it's the right section. Sorry if it ain't.
    P.P.S.: I don't think it has already been posted. Sorry if it has.
    P.P.P.S.: The guys who developed WiiFlow should sue Nintendo!

    Wiiflow and all the rest of the usb loaders are based from waninkoko's usb loader 1.5, but I'm sure waninkoko did not apply for a patent.

    I thought Nintendo was the inverter of new technologies for the gaming community, not copy cats. This looks like Nintendo is copying the usb loader.

    I renamed your post and moved it to the news section.

    Thanks. Still, I think it's funny. Nintendo copying people who hack their systems? Sounds confusing, to say the least.

    Loading from USB is something that nintendo has done years ago. Not made public but yes using it for stores and as an option for Hotels

    Sorry, I did look in the new section, but your post must have been burried just far enough to where I didn't see it.

    That video you have in your post looks like the Starlight Fun Center, and I do believe when I looked it up last year, the cost on it was $4500, sold by Nintendo.
