Nintendo Pushes Back 64GB Switch Game Cards To 2019

Nintendo Pushes Back 64GB Switch Game Cards To 2019

And it looks like that will continue to be a problem if, as The Wall Street Journal hears, Nintendo is delaying the production of 64-gigabyte cartridges.

By comparison, Blu-ray discs for the PS4 and Xbox One can hold 50 GB of data. The plan was to start manufacturing the bigger cards in 2018, in time for incoming third-party software that's in development.

While this might be a problem for the American developers of Nintendo Switch games.

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

Sources said that the move has brought "slight disappointment" to some developers that were eagerly waiting, especially United States publishers who more often need the larger 64GB capacity for their data-heavy driven games. And with microSD card prices being more expensive than they should be, with 256GB costing Rs. 8,000 upwards, buying and playing games on the Nintendo Switch seems more expensive than Nintendo advertises it to be. But The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo won't be ready for another year, in order "to ensure quality".

Peruvians celebrate Christmas Eve with hugs and good wishes
The head priests gave sermons on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ who gave world the message of peace, brotherhood and love. On Christmas Eve, people across various states are gearing up to celebrate the Pagan holiday.

Unfortunately, they may have to wait a lot longer.

They said the notice disappointed some software makers, especially USA -based publishers that often produce data-heavy games.

The biggest memory hog in Nintendo's first party lineup is actually The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with over 13GB of total memory space required on the carts to be played.

The Nintendo Switch console is growing in popularity, but one of its limiting factors is its cartridges, which can store only up to 32GB of data.
