Apparently the G6/M3 Team is planning to release a 8Gbit version somewhen around the holiday season.
They need to as more and more games coming out are 1Gb, and who wouldn't bet there be a 2Gb one by the next holiday season.
Afaik nintendo said the biggest rom size will 1 Gbit, so I don't think it's possible to go further than that.
Nintendo said the DS carts will be bigger in the future. 2Gbit and even 4Gbit.
Oh, never heard about that. Damn, now it sounds like the G6 is small.
Well the G6 will seem small in the future when rom sizes grow. ...Just as my PC's harddrive will seem smaller when larger games and HDTV movies become the norm. ...It's the same old technology cycle we should all be used to by now.
I don't even want to think about what an 8Gb G6 would cost. The G6 is cool and all, but if I need the space that bad an M3 isn't too hard to get.
When G6 went lite, the 4Gbit dropped quite a few dollars below the old 4Gbit, so I imagine that the price of these will be a little lower by then if not shortly after?
Have you got a source/link for that?
There's probably no source for it but we wouldn't have to venture too far out into fantasy land to get 2Gbit games, I wouldn't be surprised if Zelda was 1 Gb, and we're still a few years away from an update (technology, not style) on the ds so I wouldn't be all that surprised. I believe that the size of the G6 lite is more than adequate for now, but in about a year I would like to buy a slot 1 device with a larger capacity for my games.
IMO, if DS Games ever reach a bigger size than 1Gb, I probably wont exceed 4Gb, and I don't like having multiple games on a cart.
From what I know, 1 gbit is the limit. Just like 256 mbit was for GBA. Obviously you won't find this fact on the Nintendo website but there's a Mech Assault DS developer blog on IGN stating that the 1 gbit cartridges have an about 25% slower loading time compared to 512 mbit and less hinting that there are some technical complications with bigger cartridges.
