The thing about loading times is they'd have such-and-such available ROM but wouldn't compliment it with optimal disc speed, thus the long loading in many games. I assume they did this in order to cut corners on production cost. The TG-CD had just 1MB ROM and the TurboDuo had 2MB, yet because of the slooow disc speed, games had long load times.

Nintendo will pick whichever proprietary format keeps the checks coming in. Whether they go with cart, card, USB, disc, or something else is the least of my concerns. They'll need to do something truly special in order to convince me that the Wii U is worth purchasing. I want to see a steady and strong release schedule of brand new software, not spruced-up ports of X360/PS3 games.

Actually 64K. Half a megabit. 1/16 of a megabyte. TurboDuo had 2 megabits and the Arcade Card has 18 megabits. It's funny because the 64K games load much more slowly than the 2megabit games. Compare Gate o' Thunda to Valis 2.

I heard they are going to use bluray. Nothing to confirm it. Cause I'm not allowed! But I guess we will know for sure in a month or so.

I am not aware about such kind of information but if it is true then it is great that allows retailers and game user sell digital codes for games over internet and better for both Nintendo users and retailers. It will become more easier to buy and sell Nintendo games and applications.
