New Wii to use SD cards?19 April 2011 17:36:41
The next version of Nintendo’s Wii console could use SD memory cards, it has been claimed.
Rumours have recently spread across the internet that Nintendo will reveal a follow up to the Wii, codenamed Project Cafe, at the E3 industry event in June.
A number of claims have also been made as to what technology the new console will incorporate.
These include rumours that it will posses greater processing power than the PS3 and Xbox 360, that it will come with a motion controller with a built in display and that it will be backwards-compatible with games released for the original Wii.
However, metrowny.com speculates that the console is also likely to include support for SD cards.
This is based on Nintendo's history of including support for memory cards.
The recently launched 3DS comes with a 2GB SD card, while the original Wii allows for SD cards of 32GB to be compatible with the system with the ability to load digital titles to be launched straight from them, points out the news provider.
Recent reports of an expected price cut to the Wii in the US have further fuelled speculation that a new console is on the way.
