No 64GB Switch Cartridges for Developers Until 2019

No 64GB Switch Cartridges for Developers Until 2019

These numbers are up-to-date through December 24, but it's finally official now: the PlayStation 2 has been dethroned, with the Switch having sold an impressive amount of consoles in its first year and overtaking one of the most popular and successful consoles of all time.

The difference between the standard Nintendo Switch cartridge capacity and the upcoming 64GB cartridge can be massive. Currently, developers can only make use of game cards up to 32GB.

Nintendo Switch would have sold 3,178,100 units in Asia since its launch last March.

Nintendo is reportedly delaying the launch of 64GB game cartridges for the Switch until sometime in 2019 according to multiple sources as reported by The Wall Street Journal.

Players of the game Legend of Zelda, Breath of the Wild will know the pain already.

Since then, fans have been flooding her with congratulatory tweets , and she seems truly and genuinely thankful for all the love. As you might have seen this week, that included an intense workout (just like old times!) with sister Kourtney Kardashian .

In a tweet, games analyst Daniel Ahmad said, "If a publisher wants to put a game on a 32GB cart on Switch it costs 60 percent more for them then it would for a 50GB Blu-Ray on PS4/Xbox One". That's considerably smaller storage compared to a Blu-ray, which can hold up to 50 gigabytes of data for a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One game. I suspect option one is likely to be what most developers choose to do.

While the Switch may miss out on certain games, Nintendo has a slew of titles planned for the system in 2018.

Nintendo allows microSD cards for Nintendo Switch to expand the internal storage of the device.

The Switch only has 32GB of internal storage, so 2018 is going to be a pain for managing game data if you don't have a large microSD card.
