    Well, NDS games from 0001 to 4100, zipped into packs of 50 take up 101GB on my hard drive. I don't bother collecting the XXXX releases unless they are good games to begin with.

    It would be super cool to have all NDS games UNRARed on a microSD so you could walk around telling people that you have every single game for NDS.

    The total size is this small? Is it because of the amount of 8mb shovelware?

    Well that, and the fact that when they are rar'd, they are compressed to an even smaller file size.

    What would be interesting to know would be; if you take away region dupes and stick to only one version of each different game dumped, how many games would that be? (I'd guess the 500-600 range) Say you trimmed them all with NDSTokyoTrim, how much space would that abridged (but technically complete) amount of games take up in space?

    THEN you have to remember that each game will need to create a save file. For the sake of sanity, we'll just say 512KB for each save. Now add that to the total space taken up.

    One last thing to remember, the nds files you run on the flashcart won't be rar/zipped anymore, even trimmed they could end up being larger than when they were rar/zipped.

    Taking all my above points (and whatever other points I left out) into consideration, it would be REALLY INTERESTING to know how much space would be needed for that scenario.

    It would be awesome if you could have EVERY DS GAME on one cart, but even at 32GB, I don't think it would be possible. If it was possible to have 64GB microSD's (which it's not), then you might have been able to do it.

    Meanwhile, I just ordered a 16GB Class 6 microSD for my CycloDS. While I definitely won't have EVERY game, I most assuredly will have every game I have ever cared about for the DS, be it homebrew, apps, games, funny vids....whatever, it will all be on one card. And I'll still have plenty of space left for checking out new dumps. [​IMG]
