The Kotaku post here describes how Nintendo is planning on only including an 8 gb hard drive in their next console. If we are to take this seriously, then I can only conclude that Nintendo is fully out of the real world. In this modern age of gaming, hard drives are everything. Everything from smaller digital games to full retail downloadable games, not to mentions DLC such as map packs and add-ons, can now be downloaded to hard drives on the Xbox 360 and PS3. How Nintendo expects to compete like they recently claimed is beyond me. They can have HD visuals and large disc formats all they want, but if they do not understand the internet, then the console is doomed to be rejected by the “hardcore” crowd just like the Wii was.
