    What if any SD cards are you going to have at the Wii launch. I got a 512 mb. card for lots of Metroid :)

    I probably won't buy a large one until the internal memory is all used up but if I need one then I have a 256mb one that I had for my Pocket PC.but I never use it anymore so I could just use it.

    I have a 2 Gig card that I bought for my old cell phone. I was going to sell it until the info was released that the Wii will use SD cards so it has been sitting on my desk waiting for a Wii to be put in to.

    I'm going to shell out for an 8Gb SD Card. Only half the capacity of an XBox hard-drive, but twice as reliable, and twice as fast. Plus i can whack in all my photos and MP3s and have them cranking thru my surround sound. Win all round I think... (cept for the prices of 8Gb SD cards atm..)

    How much do 8gb cards even go for?! Probably more than the damn Wii itself. Just buy a Ps3 if your going to do that. :lol:

    Well I found the answer myself. $280! Are you out of your mind? Go buy a Ps3 which comes with a 60gb and a Blu-Ray drive if your going to shell out that kind of cash just for 8 gigitys.

    Same here, I'll wait a bit before I buy one so I can get the most Mb for the £.
    How much internal memory does the Wii actually have?

    It has 512 megs, but this is also needed to store Virtual Console games. I think realistically 2-4Gig should be ample. 200 songs plus quite a few photos, and PLENTY of space for saved games. SONY's 60Gig hard-drive seems overkill.

    I have spare 512 and 1gig cards lying around from 'Buy so and so and get these free' deals. They'll hopefully do me for a while.

    And... 60gig overkill o_O

    Remember, with downloadables and the inevitable movie rips and such 60gb on PS3 really isn't overkill. That's like saying my 1.4 tb total (Between 2 PCs and 2 External Drives) for PC use is overkill.... really it's not.

    I ate up my 360's hard drive in less than a month with donaloadable arcade games and demos (most being just below 1 Gig). I WISH my 360 had a 60 gig drive. So whoever says the Ps3's 60gig is overkill must not game much.

    Haha, yes I spose you are right. Last console I bought was an N64. But I know for sure that the Virtual Console games are nowhere near 1Gig each. And it IS still a gaming machine, not a PC hub, so I still considered it unnecessary to store that much on a home ocnsole.

    Download a few HD movie trailers and a few HD game demos and half that hard drive is gone. 60 gigs these days isn't anything. It seems that Nintendo fanboys accept old technology and hate on consoles that offer it. Alittle back asswards if you ask me.
