A Sliver Of Flash Memory Hope?

So then, who's excited for WiiWare? Pretty much everyone with a Wii I'd assume, well there's still no updates on when it's coming out, but there might be a solution to the Wii's notoriously small amount of flash memory sneaking it's way onto the market soon.

There has been no official confirmation, but during a Financial Q&A with Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata, there was a hint, a glimpse, a glimmer of hope that Nintendo is recognizing they need to add more memory for those gamers who want to download, and keep every Virtual Console and Wii Ware game they possibly can.

Q6 I am personally enjoying WiiWare and Virtual Console but feel Wii’s flash memory size is not enough and annoyed that I need to use a SD memory card. Will this situation be improved?

A6 Iwata:
Statistically speaking, it is true that there are a small number of customers who feel that the flash memory is too small, while many others find that they have plenty of memory. However, because this small number of people are none other than the most avid players, we know we have to review the best possible solution to eliminate their inconvenience.

Could this mean that gamers don't have to worry about running out of memory space anymore on their Wii with the help of an external accessory? It's anyone's guess at this point in time.
