If you were expecting massive open-world games like GTA V on the Nintendo Switch anytime soon, think again. The GameCube used small optical discs before the Wii and then Wii U went with a more standard optical drives.

If there's not enough room on the cartridge, users have to download the rest - or the entire game - to the system's onboard storage, which quickly fills up. These larger games require additional data download before full capacity gameplay. It isn't all bells and whistles for the platform, however, as Nintendo has delayed its 64GB cartridges for outside publishers until 2019.

The Wall Street Journal recently reported that 64GB Nintendo Switch game cards, originally meant to be available for developers in the second half of 2018, have now been pushed back to 2019 due to technical issues.




Nintendo reportedly won't offer 64-gigabyte game cards for Switch until 2019. This has brought the Switch's year-to-date total sales to 3,258,083 units compared to the PlayStation 4's 3,016,622 units in 2000. Some publishers may even postpone the launch of their games on the Switch in order to have access to the larger cartridges. Ramping up to the 32GB cartridge, a developer is said to pay 60% more than they would for a 50GB disc on PS4/Xbox One.

It's a shame this has happened as 64GB cartridges are the sweet spot for Nintendo.

What's more is, you can expect games using bigger cartridges to cost more. Currently, users can play games on the Switch by purchasing physical cartridges, or downloading the games on the Switch. The hybrid console has 32GB of internal memory, but it can be expanded via microSD cards.
