A new IOS for reading data from USB HDD? An update incoming?

Dragon Quest X for Wii is launching this year in Japan. Apparently, a Demo from the BETA test contains a new IOS. Could that mean the final Wii update is coming?

Dragon Quest X is a MMORPG from Square Enix. The game is coming this year in Japan on the Nintendo Wii and Wii U and marks the series online debut.

Well, as many other MMORPGS, this will require an external USB HDD or flash memory in order to store future game updates and content. Apparently, in order to achieve this on the Wii, the game contains a new IOS -'IOS 59'-, which was spotted from the BETA test DEMO ISO:

Most likely, this IOS will be mandatory, so this could be the final Wii System Update (4.4?). Well, at least in Japan (there's no word if the game is coming here too, yet).

it will be mandatory if you want to play dqx as its tied to usb hdd encryption, there is no immediate plans for an actual 4.4x firmware although when one does come its likely that this will be includes as its normal.

there is of course a question as to whether this could be used (lets say on a future console) to encrypt any data stored on usb flash / hard drives to block "illegal" use or even to lock a game to a particular unit (as rumoured for both sony and ms)

at present its a private beta and since its an online game (mmo) they are tracking the users (and accounts) so an iso would be pointless as each copy is logged to the individual person its issued to (hence the anti used game suspicion of ios59 for the wii u) of course once its released i'm sure people will look into it and we'll find out if the released version is also locked to a single system once its launched.

MMO DQ does sound interesting but I was hoping for a single player version on the Wii :(

Like Dragon Quest VIII on the PS2.
