At this week's Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco Nintendo revealed plans in its keynote speech for a new storage infrastructure for Wii.

Available with immediate effect, the latest firmware update adds an SD menu, which allows you use SDHC cards with a storage capacity of up to 32GB to store and play games.

You'll also be able to download games directly from the Wii Shop Channel directly onto your SD card.

Other announcements at Nintendo's keynote speech include three new games, Rhythm Heaven for Nintendo DS, Rock 'n Roll Climber - a WiiWare game that makes use of the Wii balance board, and a new Zelda game for DS, due for release later this year.

Always been a shortfall for the Wii no mass storage solution. This is a step in the right direction though. Can now download stuff without having to delete some channels!!

So will check if there is an update tonight and download the rest of the Strong Bad games! :)
Also good that the added SDHC support. 32GB is plenty of storage.
Nice, wondered what my Wii update was about this morning
