Nintendo ready to solve Wii storage problem

After confirming several times in the past few weeks that they are working on a solution to expand the storage limit on the Wii, something that has caused a lot of frustration (and perhaps anger) in the community, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has now also said that the Wii’s storage problem is becoming a mainstream issue.

“We have said publicly that we’re looking hard at the storage situation, that we’re working on a range of solutions. We have nothing to announce now. But certainly it’s an issue we are aware of and we’re working to find a solution and we will,” he told MTV’s Multiplayer blog.

“So in our view this is becoming much more of a mainstream problem, which is why we have a sense of urgency to solve it.”

So, we’ve got “mainsteam problem”, “urgency to solve it” and “working on a range of solutions”. Could we really be seeing a solution soon? Nintendo has come a long way since their retracted “otaku and geeks” comment, but we haven’t really gotten any substantial information about how the limit problem will be taken care of, or how much space the Wii users might get in the future. Maybe there’s a shortage of geeks in Nintendo’s management?
