News of the Megaman Legacy Collection 2 file size is now out... and it's 3.2 GB

Source: https://nintendoeverything.com/switch-file-sizes-mega-man-legacy-collection-2-runner3-harvest-moon-more/

For those of you keeping score, the "physical" release of Collections 1 and 2 will be game 1 on the cart and game 2 will require a download. As game one is only around 350 MB, that means that Capcom is using a 1GB cart for the physical release of a less-than 4GB collection, when 4GB carts are widely available. 

There really just isn't any excuse for this practice and it needs to stop. A lot of folks have responded to the news by saying, "Welp, I guess I'm buying digital." I, for one, am simply done buying Capcom games altogether until they change their practices.

Buying digital does nothing, it's what Capcom is trying to coerce us into doing in the first place.

Lol, this is ridiculous. Frankly it should be illegal, if you buy physical you should have access to the full game. What if you didnt have internet? This really shouldnt be legal. When you buy something it should work as purchased/



Well, a game to buy when it's cut its price in half on Black Friday! F *** Y **, Capcom!



Switch Friend Code = 5965 - 4586 - 6484

That's even more ridiculous... I was going to cave, but I changed my mind. If I buy physical, I want the damn game physically.

Mega Man 11: First 4 bosses on the cartridge with a download code for the rest.

Everyone coulda told you this. Both their collections coming to Switch could have fit on an 8GB  or even a 4GB card and been no skin off their back. Instead they are being extremely cheap and lazy and slapping them on the smallest cartridge they can get their hands on and making you download most of it and frankly, eff that.

No company wan't to pay the surpluss and look like overpricing asshats. Nintendos fault for choosing cartridges and now with the hack they're in desperate need of being able to cut their prices before people start jail breaking but they can only cut on the digital side. A mid cycle refresh is needed soon, different chip, different storage options.



Don’t forget to mention that Capcom is doing the same sorta thing with the X collection on Switch, but in Japan, you can buy both collections physically as standalone games.

Capcom is clearly capable of making physical carts for these games, they’re just lazy af.



huh. I thought we already knew this. I remember seeing the file sizes a couple days ago...

Anywho I don't really care tbh. I'm pretty much done buying physical anyway and I honestly don't know what the big deal is about having to download extra with physical media. I mean it's just a couple GB...

Yeah but being lazy is sort of Capcom's thing. Did you see Marvel vs Capcom Infinite?



Jeez, that is smaller than some freaking 3DS carts. Seriously those are available up to 8GB. Switch standart cart size is 16GB with 32GB being an option. WTF Capcom?

Well, good that I've never had any interest in Megaman so far, this collection is not about to change that.
