    What I am looking at is the graphics card. What could be in the graphics that could take it so long to develop if it is just slightly more powerful than the GameCube as they say?

    512 megabytes of flash, wont go to far with downloads.
    It probally can hold about 50 downloaded games not including save files.

    You do have the option of using external SD cards as well though, so if you can fit 50 downloaded games on a single 512MB card, that is pretty cost effective.

    ^---it could be compatible with a usb hard drive, and there is always the SD slot if more room is needed beyond the 512MB

    it shouldn't, flash memory actually reads much faster than a hard drive, so if anything you'll notice a performance hit once the hard drive has seen extensive use and become very fragmented

    the actual difference is not very apparent to human perception, but flash accesses at roughly 20 nano seconds, where as a hdd takes about 10 milliseconds. Of couse these stats are for PCs but hardware limitations translate fairly well usually

    EDIT: I think i just caught the real intent of your question....

    No, filling up the 512 will not affect the systems performance bc this is not the memory used to play games, it is the memory to store the save files and roms for the classic games

    Will there even be a way to defrag the harddrive?

    well...not the prettiest solution, but if it is a USB drive hook it up to your computer and use windows defrag utility

    not really sure bc i haven't got any experience with a console hard drive, anyone know what the xbox 360 does about it?

    I wonder how much more powerful will the final edition of the graphics card be, in relation with those used in E3....
    I also speak Yoshi, by the way.
