    That's awesome. Reggie said something like "1 gigabit and beyond" at E3 2005, and I guess this is now. I'm just glad that the DS has the ability to get a bit more room to breath... guess more capacity doesn't mean anything unless you utilize it the right way.

    Hopefully they won't get so big we can't fit them on a 1GB G6...

    8gbit? So 1gb? So you can only fit 4 of those games on your card? That's not that great [​IMG]

    You... always wanted 2 GBit games? Would you please elaborate that? 'Cause as it stands this sounds pretty retarded. I want good games, I couldn't care less how big they are. You know, size doesn't always matter... [​IMG]

    It seems like some people here can't understand that 8 GBIT = 1GBYTE

    So, a 2GBit game has only 256MB. A 1GByte micro SD can hold 4 of those.

    Don't forget that you can also trim the ROMS so you could hold more then 4 maybe.

    I have 4Gb. Highly doubt that some game will go over that limit. And if so, I'm so buying a new flash cart [​IMG]

    I'm thinking they will use these new, larger carts for Dragon Quest 9 as well.

    Bring on the Hoshizora no Mamoribito!
