    Wii's Internal Memory

    With the size of the internal memory (cant remember how big it actually is), does anyone know or reckon you will atleast be able to save one games file saves to it, before having to buy a SD memory card?

    Meaning, will I be able to just spend 220 for the Wii and Z:TP on launch day or take more with me to assure I will be able to save my game on the 1st day of play?

    You save A LOT more than that. There are a TON of save slots avaliable on the Wii.

    I see. I only asked for confirmation being as the figure for the memory I recall seeing was messured by 'MB', and to me I would of felt more secure seeing it as 'GB' lol.

    Really its down to how much the file saves take up, because the internal memory could be just 100KB, but aslong as each file save only takes up 1KB, thats 100 game saves you can store.

    Right - saves don't really take up that much do they? I should have checked at gamestop. I went into settings and viewed the internal memory and it said there was an Excite Truck save. I should have seen how big of a file it was.

    Lets hope not... Aslong as I can get TP and Wii on launch straight after work and get home to play and save my progress, its fine by me

    512MB internal is more than enough for a good few save-games. They will differ from game to game. You can always back it up with an SD when you need to though.

    Unless you download 20 N64 games, you don't need an SD card.

    PS2 Games average out to taking up about 400kb per game. So I'll estimate Wii to 500 just because its an easy number to work with mentally. Figure for every 1 MB you can save 2 game saves. And 500kb is really only for the big adventure games but just to put your mind to ease i'll make all games 500kb. 1MB takes 2 game saves if your using it for purely game saves 512MB some of it will be used for remembering your wii settings and all that take it down to 500 thats 1,000 game saves. Of course there is the virtual console. I should warn you N64 Games are pretty big, I would say average about 15MB, but if you think about it. If someones rich enough to buy 30 N64 Games(300 Bucks) then I don't think buying an SD card would be much of a problem. Now for you hardcore old school gamers you have nothing to worry about(most of you atleast) Nes Games take up average about 250kb. Thats 2000 Nes Games jammed into the card when theres only about 950 USA Nes games out there. Snes Games are about 1.5 some go up pretty high though I should warn. but still every 3MB is 2 games thats about 330 games. Each one is 8 bucks i believe so filling up your card will run you 2500+, so unless theres a way to put music into your wii and you dont feel like listening to it on your computer a few feet away memory shouldnt be much of a problem.
