Nintendo Switch won't see 64GB game cards till 2019, report says

The sources said the move has brought "slight disappointment" to some developers, especially United States publishers who often need the larger capacity for their data-heavy games.

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.

Lavrov, Tillerson discuss need for urgent North Korea negotiations: Moscow
This may open the way for the de-escalation of tensions between the USA and North Korea, Peskov added. North Korea's foreign ministry on Sunday slammed the latest round of measures as "an act of war".

By comparison, Blu-ray discs for the PS4 and Xbox One can hold 50 GB of data. Currently, developers can only make use of game cards up to 32GB. But The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo won't be ready for another year, in order "to ensure quality".

Nintendo has already informed the developers about the delay in the 64GB Nintendo Switch cartridges.

WannaCry cyber attack: North Korea was 'directly responsible'
Microsoft has since gone on to expand on this , detailing the steps taken to prevent further cyber attacks from North Korea. The U.S.is not the first one to accuse North Korea of being the mastermind of the attack.

Those wishing for 64GB Nintendo Switch game cards will have to keep waiting.

ant2506 / PixabayWhat's the need for 64GB Nintendo Switch cartridges? Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, and ARMS are all games that take 2 to 8GB of internal memory in the Nintendo Switch. This can have several repercussions. That disincentivizes stores from keeping it on the shelf, which also leads to fewer mums picking up those impulse buys. That's too small for games such as Doom and Breath of the Wild which also require gigabytes of data be downloaded. On top of all this, you have users fretting over their memory usage and having to shell out more cash for upgrades.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Cold front arrives early Wednesday with showers overnight
Let's call it seasonably chilly with afternoon highs in the low 40s tomorrow , and easing back into the upper 30s on Thursday . For this reason, my forecast does not go as extreme as some of the models indicate as far as cold temperatures are concerned.

They said the notice disappointed some software makers, especially USA -based publishers that often produce data-heavy games. This will likely result in delayed game launches, at least on physical media. 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. "Those publishers may wait for the 64-gigabyte card to release those kinds of games for the Switch". And it absolutely must avoid the awful working relationship it had with third-parties in the disastrous Wii U-era.
