Wii SD transfer speeds increase dramatically with new update

Wii firmware version 3.4 is up and ready for your downloading pleasure. This new update brings increased transfer speeds to the SD card. Check out the video above. (It may take a little while to process.)

Yes, that’s World of Goo, a 320 block game, being transferred to an SD card in exactly 30 seconds. That’s the biggest WiiWare or Virtual Console game I have, and it usually takes just under an eternity to transfer. Transferring from the SD card to the Wii doesn’t seem to be much, if any, faster, but it was pretty speedy to begin with.

As always, though, this firmware update promises to bring some more grief to hackers, so download at your own risk.
