Nintendo Memory Card 251
Genre: Memory Card
One of the biggest downsides of GameCube was its small Memory
Card 59. Thankfully, or luckily Nintendo released an answer
for those who wanted to be able to play game like Madden
Football, and set up and save their own franchise. What's
the solution? Memory Card 251 is the solution. With the
Nintendo Memory Card 251 you're able to save up to FOUR
TIMES as much as Memory Card 59. Sure it isn't as much as
Sony's, and Microsoft's memory Cards (which are 8MB) for
their systems, but still it's a step in the right direction.
We figure since most PS2, and Xbox games take anywhere from
50 to 200 blocks to save. Well the thing is - Nintendo games
take a lot less blocks to save. Usually somewhere starting
at 5 to 10 blocks. That will in the end really affect your
total number of saved games. So with Nintendo new memory
card you're really getting a better deal - money wise, and
save wise. Memory Card 251 can be purchased from $20.00
to $30.00. So it cost more than the MC59, but rememberů
you getting more space!
The one other solution for gamers who need bigger Memory
Cards is the Interact 6x Memory Card. The downside is the
Memory Card 16X cost as much as a PS2, and Xbox Memory Card.
You will get more save space, but the thing is - it's third
party. Any educated gamer knows what that means: It isn't
made by Nintendo. Often time's third-party products, especially
memory cards can easily become corrupted - cause you to
lose games that you have saved. So the smarter choice would
be to play it safe and by the Memory Card 251. If you decide
to buy it you should be able to find it easily - most stores
have it. The card un-like Memory Card 59 is black, and comes
with some handy gold label stickers. You can keep track
of what games are on your MC's by labeling them - which
is a dandy extra if I do say, so, myself.
So now all you have to do is fine a store, and find some
cash. We definitely encourage the purchase of a MC251. They
are first party, made by the Big "N" themselves,
and even come with a warranty. Your memory card problems
have been solved. Buy it.
I honestly don't see a reason not to buy a MC251, but
that's all I really have to say... ^_^
wouldn't be to un-reasonible to charge a little
less for it since it is still tiny compared to PS2's,
and Xbox's MC's.
from Nintendo... How do you think it will work?
(not an average)
first party... You can't get much better than that,
but maybe a little bigger?
