    N64: 32Mbit - 512Mbit (4MB - 64MB)

    Incase you don't know 1Mbit is equal to 125KB. I would also think that each ROM would be compressed in some manner, making them even smaller. You also should remember that games may not use all the storage space of the cartridge. Finally, I would also like to mention that I think hardly any N64 games (well I only know of 1, which is Resident Evil 2) used a 64MB Cartridge, I think on average they would use 8MB - 16MB sized cartridges/ROMs.

    Just for the record, one bit represents a binary value of either 0 or 1 state (otherwise referred to as an on or off state). A byte is a string of 8 bits of varying states. so while a bit has two variables, a byte has sixteen variables thus factoring it eight times.

    I'm saying this because of some minor inaccuracies. A Megabit's byte equivalant is actually 128Kbytes instead of 125Kbytes. Thus a Kilobyte, is not 1,000 bytes but is instead 1024 bytes. Similarly, a Megabyte is not 1,000,000 bytes exactly, it is more like 1048576 bytes.

    The Binary system is known as a Base-2 system (as the only numerics it encompasses are 0 and 1), While the established world-standard mathematical Decimal system is a Base-10 system (as it uses all numbers from 0 through to 9) and the Web-colour-coding numerical system is a Base-16 system (also referred to as Hexadecimal, as it uses the standard decimal system and also alphabetical characters corresponding to colour codes, being A, B, C, D, E, and F).

    Got just a little drawn out again but hey :P

    hey

    @Ezekiel86: Yep, I thinks you are correct... I found it odd that it wasn't to the power of 2. I actually got that (125KB) from Wikipedia, as I couldn't be bothered calculating it for myself :\. Anyhows, as you probly know... it's easy to calculate... 1Mbit = 128KB = 131072Bytes = (1024*1024) / 8.
