That the games can be as strong or stronger than the Gamecube games? I mean could we get full Gamecube games on the 3DS (obviously with different controls)? Or is it also partially the hardware... or will that be more powerful than the GC?

And this is going of of Wiki saying that the Gamecube discs were 1.4gb.

if they make a strictly GC style game with no 3D whatsoever it would look close probably

You mean 1.4GB(gigabyte). There's quite a difference between gb(gigabit) and GB(gigabyte). And yes 3DS game cards will be bigger than Gamecube discs at 2GB.

This is still debated.

Indeed No,

it is more powerful, because it has to render all the geometry and effects TWICE, which the xbox didn't have to do. So it'll be more powerful only because of that. The only thing is, the graphics might not look "better" because of it, they will "only" be in true 3D. The total resolution it's outputting (800x240), is about 2/3rds of that of the xbox, so overall in terms of power 3DS>xbox, yet ignoring the 3D, the visuals on the xbox might still look better.

But i want to see more of that real-time RE footage. Keep in mind, these are first gen games. Ridick wasn't an xbox launch game either.

As for the disc space, it only means it is capable of better/more music, cut-scenes, higher resolution textures...
