    Does the Nintendo Wii needs a Memory card?

    And if it does, what kind of memory card holds game saves?

    And if it doesn't....nah the wii needs a memory card :eek:ut:

    it has internal 512mb flash memory. You can use SD cards for extra memory. The internal memory has over 1000 save blocks. THe number of blocks a game save needs depends on the game.

    you will only need a gamecube memory card to save GC games. Wii games save on the internal flash memory or SD memory cards, as Coldshiver said.

    Very cool indeed. The only thing is that you cannot just bring your memory card over to your friends house and just plug in the memory card. But after all, the Wii is a TINY system. :D Might as well bring the whole thing. :D

    I think it won't be a problem unless you plan on getting over 50 games.
    If you can afford that, I don't think buying an extra memory card would be much of a problem xD

    Yeah, can you copy games from the system to the SD card? If so, that'd be so sweet, and a much lighter item to carry! :D

    You can save your VC games onto your SD card. But you can't play it on a different Wii system, only yours

    Second Idea: The Wii box is small so you can carry it in a bag, YAY FOR NINTENDO!!!

    Little is the new big.
    Don't get any ideas. (pervert)

    Coldshiver...I should have been more clear. I didn't mean VC games, I meant game saves from wii games. In other words, can I copy whatever game saves are on the flash memory onto an SD card to take to a friend's house or w/e?

    Yes, you should be able to do that, Scuba.

    So Wii game saves only save to the Wii's internal memory? That's patently ridiculous... If Nintendo wants to be serious about downloadable content, upgrades, and patches, they'd better start thinking about an external hard drive - 512MB won't last long, and SD cards are a premium $ in terms of storage.

    No. Well, im not sure cause i dont jave a wii, go figure. I think you should be able to put your internal saves on a sd card, its only logical. Also, you will be able to save your games onto a sd card, not just to the internal memory. Why else would they even spend the time making sd capabilities if you couldn't.

    Finally, external hard drives probably wont be a problem seeing as there are USB ports. So any USB device with storage should work. For all we know, you may be able to store you game saves on your Ipod!

    its not that expensive i've seen 4gb cards on newegg for like $50 plus wii will most likely have an external usb hard drive attachement of some sort. Just don't buy official white cards that say wii and you can get them for pretty cheap.
