No loading times with that much space? Damn.

I know. And with how much cheaper flash memory continues to get, it's not unreasonable to expect 8GB cards for the system in 4-5 years if a developer needs that much space for a game.

Indeed, they announced at E3 2004 that the largest DS cartridges at its launch would be 128MB. Now we've gotten up to 512MB ones, four times the size, in the mature life of the DS. So it isn't inconceivable that flash memory will fall even further in price and we'll see some 4-8GB 3DS games, putting them exactly on par with single and dual layer DVD. 8GB is the largest Wii game out there, the only one i'm aware of is Smash Bros Brawl.

What's even better is that's only the launch size. They'll increase throughout the 3DS' lifetime. 4 GB, 8 GB even...

They've reached the end of the line where they can just keep increasing the size of UMD's too and still be compatible with current PSP's. They'd have to make an all new disk and system if they wanted to make larger disks. DS games can actually go as high as they could ever want, there's no real limit to flash memory at the moment, besides price. I think the largest SD card currently available is like 32GB, and that's near a bluray disk. So go figure, only limit is the price. And that is constantly dropping as time goes on.

Wonder what the initial pricing on the 3DS games will be. $50 dollars at least I would guess.

2 gigs is the current maximum though correct? The minimum might be closer to DS standards 256-512 megs or so.

I am inclined to say along the lines of 39.99 for a 3DS game, I think 50 might be a bit high

Highly doubt it. Most likely will be $29.99 for the shovelware games and $39.99 for the quality titles, like the DS.
