Wii hard drive on the way?

Nintendo could be preparing to unveil a Wii hard drive according to recent internet rumors.

It has been suggested that Nintendo will be showing off new hardware at this year's E3 show, and all fingers point towards that being a hard drive to increase on the Wii's relatively small 512MB of internal memory.

Confirmation back in April that Neo Geo games will begin being added to Wii's Virtual Console download service adds weight to the speculation, considering Neo Geo games are huge - some clocking in it at up to 330MB. One of those bad boys would put serious strain on the Wii's memory.

We'll be reporting from E3 so stay tuned for more on that if and when it breaks.
