Nintendo Delaying 64-Gigabyte Game Cards For Switch Until 2019

  • The Nintendo Switch Has All Five Games You Need To Play This Week

According to a new Wall Street Journal report, Nintendo is planning to release 64 GB cards for the system, but they won't launch on time. Some publishers may even postpone the launch of their games on the Switch in order to have access to the larger cartridges. This has seen a $10 premium on the Switch version of L.A. Noire, and Square Enix adding on extra for its Dragon Quest Heroes games as the latter ships on the bigger 32GB cartridge.

It seems like publishers may have some trouble releasing data-heavy Nintendo Switch games next year, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

This is an interesting development for Switch fans, but it doesn't exactly come as a surprise that the console has been such a smash hit for Nintendo. Nintendo has planned to offer a substantially bigger 64GB space for game developers.

With the launch of the Switch, Nintendo chose to drop the optical drive completely from its hardware line-up.

The county does not become involved in collection of taxes until bills are judged delinquent. In some counties, towns, cities and villages, pre-paying taxes is a common practice.

Presumably, larger games that won't fit on the available game cards could still be sold as downloadable titles. In other words, games that require more internal memory might have to wait a little bit more.

Nintendo now offers cartridges in capacities of 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB.

Nintendo allegedly cited unknown technical issues with the 64GB game cards that would delay the roll out. Switch users also have the alternative of downloading games over the internet. 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.
