Nintendo Switch High Capacity Cartridge s Delayed to 2019

Nintendo reportedly delays 64GB Switch cartridges until 2019 Nintendo Reportedly Delaying Delivery of 64GB Switch Game Cards

Not everyone is enthusiastic about the 64 GB Switch cards, as some "outside developers" told WSJ that the Switch "might not be well-suited to data-heavy titles regardless of whether the 64-gigabyte card is available".

A report from the Wall Street Journal claims that Nintendo aims to release the 64GB game cards to developers in 2019. In other words, games that require more internal memory might have to wait a little bit more. At the very least, we might see Nintendo take advantage of the extra space afforded next year. These developers are known for producing data-heavy games.

The difference between the standard Nintendo Switch cartridge capacity and the upcoming 64GB cartridge can be massive.

For reference, current Nintendo Switch cartridges can only offer developers 32GB of space to do their magic.

Saudi Arabia has also had a longstanding proxy war with Iran , with both laying claim as the Middle East's major regional power. Other leading chess players have previously expressed objections to the hosting of the tournament in Saudi Arabia .


While this might be a problem for the American developers of Nintendo Switch games. This makes bigger games like GTA V out of the reach of Switch users as the file size for such games goes over 50GB. This is because neither game in its entirety can fit on a single Switch game cartridge. This means that the Nintendo Switch can hold much less data than a Blu-Ray disc which can store up to 50 GB of data.

"Full Priced Retail Software Publisher Gross Margin 50GB Blu-Ray = 55 percent 32GB Switch cart = 45 percent That is one reason Switch games cost more", he added.

If there's not enough room on the cartridge, users have to download the rest - or the entire game - to the system's onboard storage, which quickly fills up.
