    I want to know the equivalence between blocks and Bytes and if any of the games listed with its current size in blocks.

    This is to see if it's worth buying digital games or continue with the physical.

    I think one block on a wii is about 128KB
    I have not checked if its the same with the 3DS

    I was bored and started making the rule of three

    Information
    1. SD de 2GB are 14,786 Blocks (7,664 used + 7,122 available)
    2. 2 GB are 2,048 MB

    Operation = 14,786 / 2,048 = 7.22 Blocks an MegaByte

    Once resolved a question comes another.

    Now I wonder how can a NES game may have almost 8 times the size of the NES Classic GBA/GBC version?

    Zelda II: The Adventure of Link "SNES Version in 3DS" 64 Blocks / "GBA's ROMs" 1 MB
    Legend of Zelda "SNES Version in 3DS" 49 Blocks / "GBA's ROM" 1 MB
    Legend of Zelda, The Link's Awakening DX "GBC Version in 3DS" 50 Blocks / GBC's Rom 1 MB

    This left me a little surprised.

    They bundle the emulator with each game. Probably for AP reasons.

    At least in the computer emulators are not so heavy.

    Well the emulators for VC stuff on the Wii have been found to be specifically modified for each game, speedhacks and such.

    Not so with PCs, which use the same emulator for all the games they can run, since they're not nearly as limited on resources.

    I always wondered why they do that. I would think bundling the emulator would hurt the AP rather then help.

    The problem is that an SD card doesn't have the ammout of memory it say

    2GB card doesn't have exactly 2048MB
