    better start working on a new format fro those ds games so that they can be compressed.
    otherwise. downloading a mario kart 3d backup would take ages [​IMG]

    Not surprising at all, better graphics require more space, simple as that.
    This is just a matter of evolution in technology. Glad to know they can fit 8GB on a cartridge, that's a lot!

    Yeah, we knew this was going to happen. It's just that they won't use it for a while. Look at what happened with DS games. I think the largest ones are already 512 MB, while the first games were 128 MB at most.

    It does makes it able to make a multi-game cartridge

    (p.s if a flashcard will come it'll at least need 2GB to play 1 game [​IMG]

    Well no, it'll need enough space for however big the game is.

    That was a minimum for games at launch. Or a maximum for games at launch, but I think it was minimum.

    The God damn handheld isn't even out and all you guys are trying to figure out is how to pirate a big game on it instead of supporting how much a success this handheld is going to be. =.=!

    And with the new SDXC coming micro's will hold up to 2 TB.
    But anyway, 8GB is more than enough considering it's a hand held and that every game comes with it's own cartridge.

    2GB is great for a start, I mean look at the DS and how those games gradually became bigger.
