I can sorta understand that SOME publishers don't want to invest in a 32GB cart because they are probably really expensive, i have a bigger problem with Capcom who couldn't even invest in 4GB cart for Mega Man Legacy Collection. But i absolutely refuse to buy physical editions that come with a code in the box

I prefer physical editions that come with a code in the box, if the cart is playable without the code.

More on topic with this thread: One example of a game that wouldn't fit uncompressed on the cheaper medium = "o noes the switch iz doomd!!"

Flash storage is drastically superior to discs for a variety of reasons. It is more expensive, yes, but it offers a tremendous performance increase. I do agree, in this day and age where you can buy 32GB SD cards in bulk for less than $5 ea (just based on the very first Google result I found) - a markup of less than a dollar from the cheapest 16GB price I found - that there's no reason it should be as expensive as you claim in the OP, but honestly I doubt it actually is as expensive as that, anyways.

Plot twist: "Physical" version of MK11 for Switch will come with a code in the box.



The issue isn't so much fitting it on physical media.. Its the cost of the carts.  Its an inevitable issue with a portable based system. Costs will come down over time. 



Quick question: isn't hellblade digital only on every platform?

Original release, yes. It's since gotten physical releases.

That's pretty awesome. Maybe they'll do the same for Switch somewhere down the line. I know the whole point of this thread is the size but maybe Ninja Theory can work a miracle.

Then what's the point of the code?



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Convenience of being able to load it without switching carts, while also affording the permanence of owning a cart and the ability to play well after the eshop listing is long gone.

That's, uh, been a common preference since the very first days of digital releases.
