    Yes, they don't take up much space at all.

    But I will probably be purchasing at least one SD memory card just in case. The main reason that pushed me over the hump to purchase the Wii is the Virtual Console.

    I am from the old school. I grew up on those games. I remember my mom buying the Nintendo Entertainment System on launch day for me.

    The Virtual Console has me intrigued. I wonder if maybe considering that the wii is Wi-Fi and the fact that most likely its going to be networked with a computer if you can store these files on your PC. Maybe you could even purchase and download them via PC and move them to your Wii.

    The Wii will have an online network.
    It won't be as big as Xbox Live.
    I soposed that you will buy little cards or use credit cards for credits and buy online. With the credits, you can download games.

    Yea the best idea is that where you go to your local gamestop or ebgames and buy a card that has credits on it for the Wii online for you to purchase games and stuff. Hopefully thats what Nintendo does.

    So they'll be stored in an SD card right? Can we use any SD card or will Nintendo provide us with their ones?

    An SD card is a mini memory stick thing. They are used in MP3 players, phones, and cameras...

    As far as i know there is only one kind/format of SD card (unlike sony memory sticks and the psp) so any of them should work, i guessing that the slot will be for a full sized one (they also make miniSD, same format but only the size of a phone connector or so, i have one in my phone and it comes with an adaptor to make it fit in the regular slot for computer communication)

    Im pretty sure that even if that isnt officially endorsed someone will find a way to make it possible.

    Already got one , it requires some file juggling but all you'd need is an SD card then you could take the games stored on the card and put them on the computer's hard drive, reinsert the card and download more, or swap them out for ones you wanted to play

    This does assume there will be some sort of file management built into the wii to move games from the flash memory to the SD card and such
