Back in October when the DSi was announced, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed that the system would have flash memory much like the Wii. Now, however, we finally know how much memory the DSi supports. A recent writeup notes that the DSi has 256 megabytes of internal memory.

“The only piece of content available under the DSi Ware option at the moment is the free Opera browser. The download takes 85 blocks of your 1,024 block space. While not listed in the system’s official specs, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said during a recent investor briefing that the internal memory consists of 256 megabytes, which is half that of the Wii.”

Capcom on more Resident Evil for Wii

Posted on 10 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 3 Comments | 0 Likes

“You all know we’ve not announced any new REs for Wii (or any other platforms for that matter). Alas, I’m not going to be able to share our roadmap here. Sorry guys, his [Resident Evil 5 producer] comments are going to stand as they are and I’m not able to elaborate on them.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

This quote was in reference to Resident Evil 5 producer Juntake Uchi, when it was noted that it will be “a couple of years” before the Wii sees a new Resident Evil game. A couple of years is a long time away, though Capcom probably has its hands full with Resident Evil 5. It will be interesting to see what direction the series takes after that game releases, and how a new Resident Evil title for the Wii would turn out.
