    You will either have to delete some of your VC games (They will still be paid for and you can re-download them anytime you want) or you can buy an SD card ranging from 512 megs to 2 gigs.

    Look at some of these

    Have your Wii ejected into outer space.
    "Kids, let me tell you about another so-called "wicked" guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas, and he didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was... I forget. But the point is... well, I forget that too. Marge, you know who I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?"

    Unfortunately the SD card is only a partial solution. It doesn't add to your main memory. You have to manually move (copy/delete) stuff back and forth between the SD card and your main memory. PITA.

    Apparently someone at Nintendo decided 512MB should be enough for anyone for the duration of the Wii's product life, without any regards to seamless upgradability for such a puny amount of memory. Anyone who wants to own a lot of games, or download a lot of Virtual Console games, or install a bunch of channels, or *gasp* heaven forbid, do multiples of the above, is basically screwed.

    Nonsense...
    Really, if you absolutely have to fill every single block then chances are if you go through them all & ask your self the question "have I accessed that in the last month?" You'll be able to answer No to a fair few...
    Stick those on an SD card & if you really fancy going back to them in later months you can...

    I do concede though that Nintendo should have made them capable of playing direct from the SD card rather than having to copy back & forth.

    Oh really? Tell that to the people who have already filled theirs.

    A quick search will pull up any number of examples. Here are some:

    I'm pretty close to filling up my console's memory space.



    I never add friend codes.

    Heh, that's a lot of channels you guys use then.
    I can only suggest transferring games you don't play that often to an SD card, maybe multiple.

    thanks
    How many points did you get anyway? You'll need several hundred dollars worth to buy enough games to fill up the memory storage.

    Not necessarily. If he bought eight 64 games plus all of the channels and whatnot, and maybe a high amount of saved game data and there you go. It's getting close to maxing out. (If it hasn't already)
