Wind Waker HD was close to that amount as well, I think. Needless to say, Nintendo knows how to pack in a game.

I think it has a lot to do with simple texture maps and no voice-acting, those tend to eat up a lot of space.

still 2gb is ridiculously small, luckily size has nothing to do with quality and prettiness

Nope, Wind Waker HD is barely around 700 MB. I know because I downloaded it.

Nintendo's wizardry is truly fascinating, they are the kings of cost-effectiveness.

That's why they haven't caught up graphical wise. They're perfecting memory optimization! It all makes sense now...

+1 simply because it's refreshing to see somebody with a nick like yours that can still appreciate another console. You're right about the Wii U as well, despite Nintendo's somewhat shoddy marketing the console is shaping up quite well nowadays.

here in UK I hear so many commercials on radio about nintendo 2DS ,but hell, I arent't they marketing Wii U so much, same goes with Wonderful 101.. I hope those two I mentioned will go well in a time being..

on topic: Mario galaxy games were not big in size too, but that didn't stop being them awesome games, this new Mario game gonna be amazing :)
