What’s new with Wii Menu 4.0?
- Store more—Add more Wii storage using SD Cards or the high capacity SDHC Card format (up to 32GB)
- Improved SD Card support—launch WiiWare™ titles, Virtual Console™ games, or channels directly from an SD/SDHC Card
- Let your Wii console move games and channels to an SD/SDHC Card with Auto Manage when system memory fills up
- Download titles from the Wii Shop Channel to Wii system memory or directly to an SD/SDHC Card
This storage solution came up during GDC 2009, when Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced an update on Wii Shop Channel, bringing up the “SD Card Menu”.
“Welcome to the SD Card Menu! Here, you can launch channels saved on SD Cards by temporarily utilizing the Wii System Memory.”
In addition, you can back up the titles to SD and play directly from the card. Nintendo’s also introducing new Virtual Console Arcade, which brings old school arcade titles to the Wii.
