    I presume they will be downloaded onto the Wii and stored for easy access.

    the wii has 512mb of internal memory to store the games (and saves i'm assuming) plus at least one (though i've heard two in some places) expansion slots for additional storage in the form of SD cards

    They will be downloaded to your console's built in SD card/external SD card via Wiiconnect24. So you can even download games while you're sleeping.

    my guess is it just saves the games to your account because I doubt there is enough internal memory to store games on the Wii.

    I may be wrong but when i had my xbox i would download 100s of ROM files for these older cartridge based games and the space they took up was absolutely miniscule.

    yeah, the older games are quite small, i forget the exact sizes but roms for nes were <1mb and snes prolly no more than 6mb (the newer gba games go up to 11mb but they are a bit more advanced than the snes was), the n64 games are where we'll run into space issues prolly

    the biggest N64 rom i could find was Conker's Bad Fur Day with 64 MBs. So not that bad.

    The average was about 17 MB.

    So...

    The average N64 Rom is 17 MBs
    The average NES Rom is only 21 KBs, so they hardly take up any space.
    The average SNES Rom is 1.7 MBs, not bad.
    The average Sega Rom is about 5700 KBs.
