    the wii VC games will firstly be saved on the hardware which is about 200 megabytes.
    And im sure nintendo will provide external memory packs for the VC games.
    The size will be like the orignals, maybe more compressed

    it does not matter we can just add on a hard drive, i see no fuss what so ever. The amount of space the wii gives is perfectly alright. I will add on space thats all. At least we are not being ripped off like sony fans, 60 gb is just an exscuse to charge so much... I think. Also THE ALL MIGHTY BLUE_RAY!!!
    Maximum image size is signatures is 500 x 130 pixels.

    hey

    Here are the range of cartridge/ROM sizes for each Nintendo console.

    NES: 64Kbit - 4Mbit (8KB - 512KB)
    SNES: 2Mbit - 32Mbit (256KB - 4MB)
    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.

    Thats cool thats cool, I'm sure they wont be the actual size that they were, they'll probably be compressed as you said, if not, just buy aloada extra memory cards or whatever

    Actually, it has over twice as much space; 512MB of storage built-in.

    VC stands for Virtual Console, which is Nintendo’s equivalent to the Xbox live arcade in which users can download many titles from the Nintendo back catalog. This includes titles from consoles such as the N64, SNES, NES and also the Sega Mega drive/Genesis and the TurboGrafx -16.

    Games will be saved to Wii's internal memory, which is 512MB. I think when they're saying "compressed" they mean the games will be optimized in terms of file size so they can be downloaded from VC in a matter of minutes or seconds.

    Hope that helped.
