Nintendo Switch Sells Over 3 Million Units in Japan

INQ's best and worst of tech in 2017

As it stands, the biggest Switch cartridges can hold 32GB of data, so quite a bit less than the 50GB capacity of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One's Blu-ray discs.

The Nintendo Switch has been enjoying some good sales numbers, especially thanks to the holiday season, and their first-party titles have been topping many Game of the Year lists. An eventual move to 64GB would allow for more data-intensive games.

10th death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto
Bilawal also claimed that to protect Musharraf, crucial details about the assassination of Benazir Bhutto are being held back. More than a million party supporters and workers are expected to be present.

Now, the ultra-expensive 64GB cards are being withheld from partner developers, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal.

The Japanese giant has chose to push back the launch of 64GB game cartridges for the Nintendo Switch to 2019, The Wall Street Journal is reporting, citing people who claim to have knowledge of its plans. Game developers get Switch cards from Nintendo, so this means that they'll have to wait to get game cards that can support big titles. The physical cards used for games on the Nintendo Switch have been maxed at a 32-gig size, but the use of 64-gigabyte cards was planned further down the line. 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. I'd love to see the Switch keep in time with its rivals but it is possible that this will also create a disparity on release dates for titles intended for multiple platforms.
