    Ok, so the Gamecube threw us off with blocks for their memory cards, and we're all like: wtf mate
    Well after doing some switch arounds, I have figured out what Blocks are = to and about how many Wii will have.

    First off, the amounts.
    These are grouped by cards, not all these are exact, like this many MB is really XX.XX blocks, but Nintendo just rounded it off.

    59 Blocks = 64 MB
    251 Blocks = 256 MB
    1019 Blocks = 1 GB

    Thus, the Wii will have aruond 500 "Blocks" for storage. (see below for exact)

    And to proove this, here's my math!

    Heres simple rounding: 59-64 251-256 1019-1024, awfully close eh? All off by 5 KB/Blocks

    (boring)
    59 into 251 (blocks) is around 4 (4.25 blah blah blah) then 251 into 1019 is around 4 too (4.059 blah blah blah) And, 64mb into 256mb is 4 exactly, and 256mb into 1024mb is 4 exactly. And well, thats my conclusion really. So close, so similar, for thoes ney sayers, saying thats to simple, of course it is! Nintendo just wanted a simple system and not have to get into KB for kids I bet.

    So using these methods the Wii will have exactly...(drum roll) 507 Storage Blocks!

    Ok, well I did this all, becuase us at IRC chat (gonintedo) were wondering what Blocks were in MB to see the storage. And no websites gave out this info that we could find.

    And so, I'm very proud of myself for figuring this out. Enjoy =]

    -If i confused anyone with Mb or MB, I'm going by whatever the Wii uses.
    -Blocks are referred to thoes from the Nintendo Memory Cards, not any other tech. term.

    Well done, Sovieto. I get so tired and confused with blocks and MB (mainly blocks) and this was quite helpful.

    thats not right cause 4 mb is 59 blocks and 8 is 123 so 1 mb is 15.375 blocks so 512 X 15.375 = 7872 blocks

    others came to that conclusion, but if you times 59 by 17 it equals 1019, but if you times 4 by 17 it only = 68.

    nice math, but leave it to me to throw a monkey wrench into the works. How do you know that Wii will use the same size blocks as gamecube? GC games will require you to use a GC memory card, so those games are beside the point.

    Sorry, but your calculations sucks..

    And also who wants to talk about "blocks" when we really know the size of the memory as Mb:s


    1019blocks memcard is roughly 64Mb
    251blocks is roughly 16Mb
    59blocs is roughly 4Mb

    Does the size of the memory on the Wii and on the GC memory cards bother you that much, i'll give it to you straight foward... there is a lot of memory for the Wii.

    thats kinda harsh, i just dont get how 59 X 17 = 1019, but 4 X 17 = 68. Like I said before, if you know so much can you explain that? you really have to right to say that, becuase someone said that before, i told them what i was wondering, then you just say my calculation suck and say the same thing as hmi, that makes your calculations sooooo much better.

    and yah consoles arent using blocks, i was just referring to blocks becuase that is what GC users are use to, its just stuff for fun.
