Nintendo Reportedly Delaying Delivery of 64GB Switch Game Cards

Nintendo Reportedly Delaying Delivery of 64GB Switch Game Cards

Physical game cards provide the benefit of additional storage so that developers and users don't rely exclusively on the Switch's internal storage space.

The delay comes after it was announced that 10 million units of Nintendo Switch have been moved. Game developers get Switch cards from Nintendo, so this means that they'll have to wait to get game cards that can support big titles. And once the Switch's included memory is full, you have to upgrade to expensive external microSD memory. The next generation of Switch games are going to be larger, not smaller, so one of three things could happen. Nintendo keeps its first-party games tiny: Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2 are both in the 2-6 GB range. This can have several repercussions.

The problem is acute with third-party games, mostly coded to exist on roomier Blu-Ray discs and have to buy their media from Nintendo. Switch users also have the alternative of downloading games over the internet.

The delay reportedly disappointed some software makers, especially US-based publishers known for producing data-heavy games. By using cartridges in the Switch, gamers can benefit from not having to install lots of data and load times are kept to a minimum, but size limitations can remove those advantages and they do make the games cost more. Also, another bummer is that Switch owners have to buy memory cards to add more memory for games like Doom for example which requires a substantial download even if you purchase a physical copy over a digital one. And it absolutely must avoid the frightful working relationship it had with third-parties in the disastrous Wii U-era.
