Q: I’m thinking of purchasing some games from the iTunes Store, but I only have an iPod nano and am worried that they may take up too much space. How big are the games?
A: Unfortunately, the iPod nano does not support the games that are available from the iTunes Store. These are currently only available for the fifth-generation iPod (5G iPod). Both the original 5G iPod released in October 2005 and the new “Enhanced” 5G iPod released in September 2006 will support the iPod Games, as long as they are running iPod firmware v1.2 or later. You can check your latest firmware version by selecting the About option from the Settings menu on the iPod.
For the 5G iPod owners who are interested in knowing how much space each iPod Game consumes, we have prepared the following table:
|Game||Size on iPod|
|Cubis 2||25 MB|
|Mini Golf||47 MB|
|Ms. PAC-MAN||15 MB|
|Royal Solitaire||57 MB|
|Texas Hold’em||80 MB|
