The card has to be reformatted to FAT32 in order to work.

Thought this was interesting since Nintendo said only cards up to 32GB would work, though I highly doubt anyone would ever fill up all 128 gigs :p

I guess it would be nice if all DS/3DS retail games were re-released as digital.

Using NSMB2 as a guide, that's enough space for 353 retail titles.

I believe NSMB on DS was less than 50MB so that's probably far from the average 3DS game, lol.

They appear to be more (~$130 based on a quick search of Amazon), but the 64 GB SDXC cards are $60-70.

There's smaller games that Nintendo have put out, believe it or not. I think Pilotwings is only about 100 MB.

I was actually a little surprised to see NSMB2 being as big as it was, given how few unique assets exist and the terrible, terrible MIDI.

That's not so much a dig at the Vita as it is the 3DS. 3DS has no profiles and isn't region-free. :P

Hopefully the Wii U supports them without needing the FAT32 format. That'd be a great solution if you don't wanna have the system stuck next to an external HDD for its whole life.

Still lovin' my Vita, but the memory card prices are painful. Plus, we're limited to 32GB maximum right now. Can't blame Sony for wanting to protect itself from hacking after what happened with PSP, but yeah, Vita memory is expensive as hell.

So the system that has relatively small games and less DLC = unlimited memory from 3rd party vendor of your choice, and the system with larger games, a bigger DD back catalog, and presumably more DLC = overpriced one-brand-only region locked memory solution?

Even at the end of the 3DS's lifespan, I doubt I would own enough digital games to fill one. And in the case that I could, there would be no reason to have every single game installed at once anyway.

I'll probably go with a 32 or 64 GB card whenever I upgrade.

Someone in the 3DS threads once said this would be impossible.
I never believed them.

Glad to see it's there if we need it.
I feel a 32GB card should last me the lifetime of the system though with just eShop and VC purchases. (not retail DD releases)

Could it be possible Nintendo extended the limit in a stealth update to strengthen their DD plan? They surely must be doing something to strengthen the DD plan, because it sure ain't the pricing.

You could film a lot of 3D videos with that lol. It's too bad the music app is pretty bad at indexing the file system, because otherwise that would be a good use for it too.

Well, third parties have been the ones to utilize the 4 GB cards thus far; if they can get them on-board in the future, we'll definitely start to see bigger and bigger games offered.

If the day comes that the 8 GB cards get used for retail, then having 128 gigs available may not be such a bad idea.

What? To transfer stuff to another SD card all you need to do is copy all the folders on the old SD card to your computer and put it on the new sd card.
