This was ignored over in the suggestion forum. So I will ask those who are users not just staff. Don't you think it would be nice if for reviews they printed the number of blocks each game has? It would take 10 seconds to type in and check when the reviewer downloads a game.

You can always check the block size of the game in the eShop by clicking Purchase but before the confirmation screen ... and if you're that concerned about the size of games, you can always just get a bigger SD Card.

Exactly.

I think the eShop should display block size somewhere without having to start purchasing it, even if I can quit out without paying.

Not if its a dsiware game. For the other 3ds downloads fine. Anyways if Nintendolife reviewers can put price they can list block size.

Yes, this works for DSiWare titles.

No you cannot play DSiWare games via the SD card only from system itself. So buying a larger SD card for DSiWare games is useless beyond just storage.

What is your problem not wanting this site to list not just the price but the blocks too. It would be easy enough. What 10 seconds?

He's telling you to check the block size before downloading. All I said was that yes, that works, whether it's DSiWare or not. I agree that it's a shame you can't play those titles from the SD card, but there's nothing we can do about that.

I'm going to pretend you didn't just ask me a question that began with the words "what is your problem."

I'm giving you a chance to rephrase that before you continue.

Yes I know you can check before downloading.

My point is what is wrong with reviewers listing block size? I don't see why not. Thats all.
