Oh I agree, it's a shitty anti-consumer practice that no respectable dev should stoop to. But as long as the download isn't huge, I'd rather put up with the mild inconvenience than miss out on playing Wolfenstein altogether.
Yeah, that is true. It's better than nothing. I just hope this problem eventually goes away in hopes of the carts being cheaper to make, or something like that.
I agree. The ball's in Nintendo's court, though. They specced the console to use carts. It's something that end users have to care about. It's going to be more expensive than a PS4/XB1 game (not including PC; different market, different rules) until 64 GB carts come out. The 32 and 16 GB carts are going to move down in price. I think releasing half a game on cart and forcing the user to download the rest of the game is a shameful practice, but games may not come out otherwise. Last I heard, it was about $20 for a licensed 32 GB Switch cart vs just $12 for a licensed 50 GB BD. Companies live within those kinds of margins. Keep in mind, publishers pay upfront for production and licensing of carts, so that's 2 million for 100,000 carts. If they only sell 50K, they're out 1 million bucks. It's not just development that's expensive. Publishing is too. Come to think of it, Crysis for Wii U likely got canned at the last minute due to this.
