Not that bad of a trade, if you ask us. Nintendo has come forward and discounted the sketchy rumor de jour of an external Wii-bound hard drive being slated for production, with a Nintendo Europe spokesperson calling the reports "pure rumour and speculation" -- like that's a bad thing. The flip side is that Nintendo took this happy occasion to confirm that the "Poképhone" DS-based VoIP action is going to hit the States next month alongside that DS headset accessory we've been seeing around forever. Of course, this isn't a huge surprise, but it's always nice to have some confirmation, even if it means getting a hopeful rumor shot down in the process.
