    I don't know about how u get roms from the original game card but say if u were gonna get a rom out of a nds 3d game card how many mbs will it be? around 120 or more ? most games now a days don't take alot only a few such a Pokemon , Blue dragon , Kingdom hearts take up about 120 mb . So my question is how much will a nds 3d rom take up?

    I'd guess 64MB to around 256MB, maybe more.

    It depends. ROM size gets larger into the systems life, the price of Flash Memory roughly halves each year. Providing it's a success, you will at some point see 1GB ROMs. There are plenty of 256MB releases for the DS as it is.

    Wait, is the OP referring to the 3DS? If so, consider:
    *Most GameBoy Advance games usualy took up ~8-16MB
    *Early DS games took up ~16-64MB
    *Current DS games take up ~128-256MB

    So, a small 3DS game might be ~256MB at launch. Bigger ones might be up to 1024MBs.

    i think it will be the same as DS [​IMG]
    however, we might be seeing 256MB and 512MB become a common practice

    Double the size of DS games, so from 64 (really small game, most of the times shovelware) to 1024 (epic game) MB. I guess.

    then ya probably shouldnt pyrate there games, it be kinda hard to make a 3d emulator, with the glassesless tech without that type of screen, then there saying there making it impossible ty pyrate, i dnt think every consol needs pyracy clinging at there feets.
