Wii gets SDHC update

Nintendo's Bill Trinnen at the Game Developers Conference announced system update 4.0 for its Wii gaming console, which most importantly allows the console to read SDHC cards, upping the maximum capacity to 32GB from the original 2GB. Thanks to the update, users will also be able to download games straight to the SD card and load channels from the storage.

The update brings up an SD card menu option that guides users through the process, urging them to move game saves to the system memory before launching the new channels loaded onto the SD cards. Judging by the SD card menu, 240 games can be saved on a card with the right capacity. [via Kotaku]
