  How many times do we have to go over this?  We KNOW for a stone cold fact that 8GB and bellow is equal to or cheaper than a PS4 disc.  

Therefore there is no excuse - none, zero, zilch - for this kind of behavior.  It's cheap, anti-consumer BS.  End of story.  People should be upset over this.  This is just insulting.  Cause it is NOT the system, it's the company.  This is entirely on Capcom.  

What, do you have a single bit of proof for this? I fail to see how making anything with a circuit on it can be cheaper than a piece of plastic, blu ray is less than a dollar each including the content on it i.e. not a blank disc

nemo37 posted the link earlier, but here it is:

And even then, there are not many options when it comes to cartridges or discs since you have to consider the size of the Switch.

Honestly Nintendo should update the firmware so the Switch doesn't recognise any cart below 8gb.

Will be interesting to see if their is a class action lawsuit form the US on this lol

Honestly, I don't think it's about the file size. Companies want to transition into all-digital as fast as possible, because it's way more profitable for them and they have much more control over pricing, distribution ,etc.

This is what I believe, too. They want to get people accustomed to digital games.

Isn't Nintendo the ones supplying the carts to publishers? they could just mass produce the 8GB ones to get costs down instead of make 1GB 2GB and 4GB for a few games that may benefit from it being that small.

Guess they're just trying to save a little money with the carts.

Well no, the small sizes should stay cause they do offer great opportunities for midtier and small time games.  What they should do is just forbid partial downloads for any game under 8GB.  



I've been a fan of Capcom.  Resident Evil especially. That's starting to fade away now due to the corporate mistreatment of their Nintendo fans.  Not prioritizing Monster Hunter XX to be brought to western audiences. Severely overpricing Street Fighter 2 Ultimate, claiming that if it didn't sell well then they wouldn't support Switch.  Now this?  I'm not surprised at all, but it is ridiculous.  

I'll still buy a Capcom game if it is high profile enough, but I guess, this generation, I am going to be supporting Bethesda, NIS, Nippon Ichi, Square, and independents a lot more.
