I dont have a wii yet(I will this Sunday). I was watching a video earlier of a Wii and I think I saw two USB ports, is this real or am I mistaken? If they are real USB ports would I be able to use a flash drive/memory stick whatebver u wanna call those.

If I can use my memory stick (lol) can I like listen to my music or view pictures?

Thanks in advanced

The only official use for the ports right now is for the LAN adapter.

I'm hoping they're gonna be for a headset and a keyboard.

For headset support, I'd rather see them use bluetooth. Having your head tethered down to the console would be rather irritating.

i dont why you cant use flash drives. you could store saved games on them then store them on ur computer!

lol if the headset and keyboard did plug into the usb, it would be a wireless adapter, i think nintendo is done with wires

Hmm, but if they end up going with a wireless HS anyways, why not just use what the console already has? Assuming Nintendo followed the BT standard to the letter, the Wii should be able to connect with up to three more wireless devices (in addition to the four controllers).

Wow, that would piss me off to no end. *Sigh* Even if they make a headset this year I probably won't buy one so I can put all my money towards all the games I want.
