Kaplan’s got a replacement.

November 2, 2007

In the form of Nintendo of America PR manager Eric Walter who compares the downloading if VC titles to ..putting music on your iPod; you listen to it for a while, and then you get tired of it, and you pull it off, and you put some new stuff on.” when asked about a Wii hard drive. Clearly this is why Apple has provided its customers with a 160GB classic ipod, so they can change their songs every time they download something off of iTunes.  Seriously, does Nintendo take these guys to a special PR school in Iran or something?  It’s the only way to explain these ludicrous analogies.

    Like I said before, I already got half of my 120 Gigabytes used up in my 360 Elite!

    Stuggling to make a justification for your hardware’s design goofs is so… well, Sony! Anyone could see how limiting storage space on the console will work against your online shopping strategy. Of course they are going to try to fix that someday, but it will be too late by then!

    If I’m Nintendo, I sell a WiiWare starter pack, which comes with a USB 40 GB hard disk (laptop sized) with nice Nintendo branding, codes for 2 free downloads, and a classic controller for around $75.

    40 Gigabytes for $75?? Never gonna happen, man! Just the price difference between your average 10 Gig MP3 player and a 20 Gig one is $100, using the same basic hardware!
