I guess I'll have to get used to a white Kirby.

How large are GBA games? Will it really be possible to download all of them?
As long as Tetris is there, I'll be happy, the internal battery of mine has always been dead, it is older than me, I just want to be able to save my scores.

You'd be surprised. Uncompressed, a single GBA Rom can weigh in at a couple megabytes, usually between 4 and 32 MB, to be more precise. Obviously Nintendo will require they be compressed to a much smaller size, but chances are you won't be able to have more than 20 or 30 at a time on even the largest currently available SD Cards.

Really? You think so?

Because I just did some math and you could fit 64 GBA games in 2GB at the least (with only the largest games) and if you only played the smallest games, you'd fit 512 of them.

There are 949 GBA games which (if they are the largest size possible) is 29.66GB, so I could fit every GBA game ever on an SD Card in a worst case senario. And I'm pretty sure that in reality the games are smaller.

Okay, Okay, so I suck at Mental Match, just stop it already.

If history is any indicator, we could see a flood of releases when 3DS VC gets fired up. Here's the day one VC lineup for the Wii on November 19, 2006:

Donkey Kong
The Legend of Zelda
Mario Bros.
Solomon's Key
Wario's Woods
Super NES-
Nintendo 64-
Super Mario 64
Sega Genesis-
Altered Beast
Sonic the Hedgehog

That's TWELVE in ONE DAY (hard to imagine that now, when I'm not sure we got 12 all of last year on VC LOL). I don't know if Nintendo will follow the same script, but it holds up to reason that they would want to have a decent lineup of games for people excited about their brand-spanking new 3DS! Quite a few first-party games for the Wii VC's launch. So, maybe on day one, you're looking at something like: Super Mario Land, Tetris, Metroid II: Return of Samus, Kid Icarus: Of Myths & Monsters, Link's Awakening DX, Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, and Donkey Kong '94.

^I doubt that'll happen again.

Honestly, I doubt it too. But, this is what Nintendo did their only other time to launch a VC. And it's just nice to think of it happening.

I think it'll happen in the same pattern as the wii because nintendo will think of the essential titles and have them coming nonstop until they run out of ideas and start searching.
