In a Summer interview 2006 with Microsoft by kikizo this was commented by Microsoft bigwigs Shane Kim (the games guy).
Do you view Nintendo Wii as competition?
Kim: We have a tremendous amount of respect for Nintendo and truthfully, I hope they are successful, because expanding the market and bringing more people into the interactive entertainment industry is a good thing for everybody. But they’re not really head-to-head competitors withXbox 360 . They don’t have the same kind of online vision that we do, with Live Anywhere, and they’re not a HD gaming console either. So I don’t think it would be fair to them, to say that they’re head-to-head competitors with us.

What is the little door on the front of the unit?
Fils-Aime: That is where an SD card goes. That’s storable media. And on top, are the attachments for the GameCube controllers.
So will SD cards be the primary storage medium?
Fils-Aime: It will be one of the memory mediums, and it’s the only one that we’ve announced.
