Nintendo is delaying the Switch's 64GB game cards

For example, National Basketball Association 2K18 on Switch requires an additional microSD card because of the hybrid system's small internal storage of 32 gigabytes.

Nintendo has already informed the developers about the delay in the 64GB Nintendo Switch cartridges. What that means for Switch owners is reduced load times and they also don't have to suffer from installing loads of data.That does come with a setback though, game developers, especially the ones located in the United States need much more capacity for their data heavy games.

So how will that possibly affect Switch owners negatively you ask? According to the WSJ, the delay has disappointed the US-based game publishers.

According to a journalist called Takashi Mochizuki from the Wall Street Journal.

Nintendo Switch would have sold 3,178,100 units in Asia since its launch last March. Nintendo keeps its first-party games tiny: Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2 are both in the 2-6 GB range.

Unfortunately, they may have to wait a lot longer. The problem for game developers working on titles that need that extra storage space is that any scheduled for roll out in 2018 that would have required 64GB physical media won't happen.

Don't go looking for 64-gigabyte game cards for your Nintendo Switch next year.

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

"Full Priced Retail Software Publisher Gross Margin 50GB Blu-Ray = 55 percent 32GB Switch cart = 45 percent That is one reason Switch games cost more", he added.

So what does this mean for next year's Switch games?
