In one of those “should have learnt from your lessons” sort of moments, the Wii 2 is set to include on board flash memory with only 8GB of space. At least, if rumours are to be believed.
The on-board memory offered by the next console will be 16 times the capacity of the original Wii, but still significantly lower than that being offered by competing HD consoles.
8GB is a fair amount of space, but a lot of phones have more memory than that these days. Sort it out Nintendo.
Thanks to Kotaku for the info.
