Nintendo Delays 64 GB Switch Card Launch To 2019

October releases

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. This makes bigger games like GTA V out of the reach of Switch users as the file size for such games goes over 50GB.

The delay comes after it was announced that 10 million units of Nintendo Switch have been moved.

It's no surprise that the Nintendo Switch has seen an extremely successful year since its debut on March 3.

Sources said that the move has brought "slight disappointment" to some developers that were eagerly waiting, especially U.S. publishers who more often need the larger 64GB capacity for their data-heavy driven games.

Dreaming of a white Christmas Eve in Southern Indiana
As if the blowing and drifting snow wasn't enough from that wind, bitterly cold wind chills will be settling in as well. Winds today will turn to the West at 15-25 miles per hour at times gusting to 35 miles per hour .

According to a journalist called Takashi Mochizuki from the Wall Street Journal. The Wall Street Journal noted the reason for the delay being technical issues, and also noted that many developers may delay their games until the cards become available.

This may seem like a small thing, but it hints at larger potential issues down the road. Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, and ARMS are all games that take 2 to 8GB of internal memory in the Nintendo Switch.

They said the notice disappointed some software makers, especially US -based publishers that often produce data-heavy games. While this isn't a problem for Nintendo developed titles or indies, it is a significant problem for large third-parties bringing data-heavy games to the platform. Also, another bummer is that Switch owners have to buy memory cards to add more memory for games like Doom for example which requires a substantial download even if you purchase a physical copy over a digital one. And it absolutely must avoid the awful working relationship it had with third-parties in the disastrous Wii U-era.
