Nintendo SDHC Support

If you have a networked Wii, check your mail today. Nintendo has just released an update that supports SDHC cards in various parts of the Wii Menu and applications.

Amazon has SDHC cards ranging from 4GB to 32GB.

This should come as welcome news to those that have been worried about the lack of storage on the Wii. The support for these cards and ability to play downloaded games off the card will expand the market for downloadable Wii Games. How ever it appears there is a limit in that you need to have free space on the internal Memory.

(Note that when launching games or channels from an SD card, an equivalent amount of internal Wii memory is required. To clear space from the internal memory, users can transfer games or channels from the Wii Menu to the SD card).

Here is the Nintendo press release.
