    Is it just wrong or is it really like that.

    If so, this must be the biggest size of a dump I've seen ever.

    Seriously why is this game a 256mb rom? I always thought the biggest size a DS rom could go to was 128mb.

    That is exactly what I thought. Maybe they jammed to carts in one to make it.

    Nope, 2 gigabits (256 Megabytes) is the maximum limit.

    That's why I was surprised to hear they were coming out with the DSi instead of an entirely new handheld. 2 gigabits is terribly constraining in this day and age.

    Well, obviously, if there are just a handful of 256MB, and none of them actually fills those 256MB AFAIK, 2 gigabits are not that constraining. The problem is not how much storage the devs have, but how they use it.

    Funny hearing about people just learning about 256MB roms just now. I remember back in the days of ASH. I thought most people would know about it by now.

    At least it discourages choose-your-own adventures like Metal Gear Solid or any recent Final Fantasy. Filling up games with FMV sucks, if the size limit forces a few developers to actually make quality games instead of trying to get into the film industry the hard way, that's fine by me. Especially considering the DS doesn't have the resolution or horsepower to make FMV look any good anyway.

    Have you ever tried ASH? Those FMVs are one of the bests I've ever seen on the DS... and on the PS2 as well lol

    FF FMV's on DS all pretty good to me, ASH i don't try it yet, but coming from Sakaguchi maybe the cinematic part is well worked.

    Anyway this seem to be a long game, despite the fmv's, i hope so.

    Tales of Hearts is 256 MB

    Loads of DS dating sims are also between 200 and 256 MB.

    the first game on a 2gigabit cardridge was A.S.H. Atchaic Sealed Heat , Nintendo had to make a bigger cardridge for this game and after a while other developers started to use em
    well suikoden is a big game lots of voice overs movies and i heard this game is long too so this is rather normal that its bigger

    I thought I read somewhere that DS games could theoretically go up to 2 GigaBYTES.

    You are correct sir; theoretically, they could make a 2048 MB cartridge.
