    WiiWare game - 40MB max in size

    Some new information regarding WiiWare games has come out. For one, the filesize of the games has a 40MB max. While this is a little bit more than the biggest VC games, it's not very big (XBox Live Arcade games were originally capped at 50MB, but are now capped at 250MB).

    We're still going to end up with storage issues though. Why? Because a lot of them are on the horizon. Nintendo is working on about 35 games and another 65 games are beind developed by third parties. Although Nintendo is limiting third party developers to one release each month per developer.

    I believe one block is 128k, so a full 40MB game would be 312.5 blocks (probably gets rounded up to 313).

    Just for comparison, Ocarina of Time is 297 blocks.

    I think you still need some sort of development kit from Nintendo and they probably have to approve your game for distribution, but I don't really know the details.
