Product Description

From the Manufacturer

This Memory Card allows you to save up to 251 blocks of game information. That's more than four times the memory of GCN Memory Card 59. The number of blocks needed to save your game information will vary from game to game. You will only be able to save or load game information for games that are designed to use Memory Cards.

Please read the Game Disc instruction booklet for the game you are playing for more information about how to save game information and how many blocks are needed for that specific game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staple for the Gamecube December 26, 2003
If you have a Gamecube you need this memory card. The 251 works well and allows for a lot of saving/deleting of information.
For a memory card this one is mandatory with many of Gamecube games and this one is the safest bet in order to play many of the games. There are other cards on the market but I don't know how well they function. This one functions great.
My complaints follow for why I didn't give this 5 stars are below.
1. Like many of the companies now they are charging a rather high price for something that probably costs very little to mass produce.
2. Even with the 251 capacity this still falls short and you can save only a few games to this card. Playing the new Sims Bustin Out game it takes up over 100 by itself.
For quality and storage capacity I do recommend this card for beginning with this system. I'll let you know if I find another that works better, so far no luck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories March 11, 2004
Finally Nintendo does it right and comes out with a descent sized memory card. The 51 is simply too small even for some single games. If you have a lot of games (like me) you'll need at least one of these if not more. The 251 holds a goodly number of games in addition to being highly reliable. I've even had a couple close encounters with mild static electricity making contact with the card and it hasn't adversely effected the card's abilities (though I strongly advise avoiding static shocks by touching a light switch before picking up anything electronic).
One thing you all should keep in mind, despite this card's durability is to create regular back-up files. I recommend doing this on a separate card, making sure to label them so you don't get confused. This way if you do manage to fry your 251 card you wont kick yourself in the head for losing all of your hard fought data. As a back-up I have an I-tech card which holds more than enough to back-up two of the 251 cards. I do recommend, however, that you only use the I-tech as a back-up since some sports games aren't as compatible with this non-Nintendo made technology.
Happy gaming.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Quality Product from Nintendo May 13, 2004
If you read the VERY small print on your Game Cube warranty, any and all 3rd party (i.e. Intec, Mad Catz) products that you use on your system void your warranty with your Game Cube. When people ask me, I always recommend the original. The Original Memory card that Nintendo came out with was way too small for the games they were putting out on the market. The 251 is great! I had 5-59 block memory cards at one time, all with one file on it that was over half the size of the card. Having a 251 allows me to have one card in my system, with all my saved games, and plenty of space left over. This is a definite must have if you're buying a system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but reliable. August 21, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
[Ignore the "fun" rating, as this is not a game. Fun: N/A is not a choice.]

This is exactly what it claims to be. Nintendo's first-party memory cards are expensive (considering their small capacity) but reliable and durable. I've never had any issues with their memory cards. Cheap third-party cards, on the other hand...

In deciding whether to buy a 251-block memory card or a 1019-block memory card, consider how many Gamecube games you have (or will have in the future). Games always list the memory card blocks required (typically in to 10-50 range) on the back of their cases.

And of course, a Gamecube memory card is necessary for saving game data when playing Gamecube cames on the Wii. Just as Wii controllers are not backwards-compatible, neither is the Wii's internal memory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Save Game January 29, 2004
With Memory Card 251, Nintendo addresses an issue that, quite frankly, should have never been an issue: lack of save game space. Even before launch, many felt that Memory Card 59 was a waste of space (and money) due to its paltry sum of bytes. As it is, some current GameCube games alone wouldn't even fit on the meager 59.
So, here comes Nintendo with Memory Card 251. Still smaller than Sony's card, and a mere speck in comparison to Microsoft's Xbox hard drive, Nintendo's 251 just barely gets the job done. In comparison to the 59, it offers much more memory space in which to save games. So it succeeds on that level. But with the competition offering such advanced features/items, you'd think Nintendo could have upped the amount of space to at least 512 or so.
To be fair, Memory Card 251 is a better card than the 59 model. It features a good amount of space to save a good amount of games, but pales in comparison to the competition. And it's Nintendo-produced, so you won't be worrying about missing data anytime soon.
Bottomline: The only quality choice for GameCube game saving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never buy anything other than Nintendo Brand... January 6, 2005
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
My family bought one of the "mondo" block cards that supposedly allowed over 1000 blocks of memory to be stored for much cheaper than this 251 block version. Well, the only trouble was it kept saying it was corrupt, that it needed to be formatted, and that all of my data would be erased. Finally we gave in and went and bought one of these cards, and we have had no trouble at all.

I guess it really is true that you get what you pay for!

5.0 out of 5 stars FINE FOR CASUAL GAMERS January 30, 2006
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
These memory cards are great! They have just the right amount of memory for me (a casual gamer). I like them because they store all of my files. In my Memory Card 251, I have about 100 files, and they all work perfectly. I have never had any problems with it in the past, and hope I never will. Since I only play Gamecube when I get tired of Xbox, I never save many games. It is my brother who uses up a majority of the space on this Memory Card. I recommend this Memory Card to anyone who doesn't have any games that take up more than sixty blocks. The price is a bit much, considering that this is a Gamecube acessory. I think that the size is a bit too small. I often lose this Memory Card in my vast amount of games, but then again, it is black, so you can find it without much trouble. Overall, this is the best Memory Card for the Gamecube.

Note: If this Memory Card doesn't have enough memory, do not get any other off-brand Memory Card. Get a larger one of the Nintendo brand.
