Reggie says no hard drive...but a better solution, while Miyamoto says enough with the peripherals

In an earlier post, I asked you guys to help translate/pick apart a Club Nintendo interview with Miyamoto and Reggie. A lot of you tried your hand at a translation, and reader Demian Chrisanti was nice enough to pull the most important parts for us. I’ve posted his snippets below.

The Miyamoto part:

They ask if Wii Motion Plus will be in future Zelda games, he confirms they’re working on Zelda and Pikmin but says nothing about WM+

He talks about all the peripherals (Wheel, Balance Board…) and says there won’t be a lot more, they have enough already.

Oh, they ask him about hard drive solutions and says to expect an announcement in the future since they’re working on possible technologies.

The Reggie part:

Says Animal Crossing is not casual and that they’re gonna have GTA on the DS for the hardcore gamers. They’re not making a “hard drive” but will come up with a better solution.

They ask him about the Microsoft avatars and says “copying is a way of flattering, so we’re very flattered.”

Says a console redesign is when the sales go down, not up when asked about a DS redesign.

They also talk about the E3 and whatnot.
