    games installed will be wiiscrubbed meaning they cut off all the unnecessary data. whats the estimate on how many games i can have on 500gb?

    Well over 100 really. The majority of games are 2-3 GB. Most of the shovelware is smaller but some games use the whole disk, or most of it like star wars the force unleashed.

    Depends on the game.

    Stuff like Wii Sports is .31 gigabytes, while Brawl is like 6.9.

    Most are 1-4, a few are larger.

    You could fit around 1,500 Wii Sports on there, but for Brawl, only around 70. Its enough lol, I got many games on a 16 gig flash drive (gonna get an HDD soon likely).

    Almost guaranteed near 150 or more. 3 gigs is a large game generally and that goes to 450 gigs for 150 games (assuming 3 gig average). MKWii is 2.5 something, but some games, like Brawl, are greater than 4.37 gigs.

    Then again, the WiiXXXXX stuff is tiny.

    I use one yeah, I use Yaulct channel loading with Gecko OS 1.07 built in (might undo that so I can use Gecko OS 1.9.2 with it) and it works fine.

    I am actually using a 16 gig flash drive and I had the following games on it:

    Metroid Prime 1 (Wii D'Absolu) with translation patch and fixed .dol
    Super Smash Bros. 2 Layer with ISO Hacking
    Call of Duty 5
    Wii Sports
    Mario Kart Wii

    Wifi works wonderfully, loads fine. Great buy, gonna likely get an HDD soon.

    (Can't wait for trilogy, got the money set aside already,).

    Yeah, I don't wanna lose my Wii so I'm likely gonna replace the disc drive or something.

    Its really nice actually, I play Brawl+ and vBrawl all the time on wifi, also do screw around hacks (Baby Mario anyone, got we dsynced so much then lol).
