This review is from: Gamecube Memory Card 251 (Video Game)
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.
