Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What exactly is going on with Overwatch Legendary Edition?

The port seems to be decent. But blizzard has fucked over consumers with:

No cart in the box just a code
Banning any speech for Hong Kongs freedom and taking the side of China
Canceling pre launch events

Nintendo has added flame to the fire by not marketing the port and calling Blizzard out for canceling there prelaunch event.

In summary, screw blizzard, I'd rather support Witcher 3.

Who could have guessed that siding with the vivisecting organ harvesters would have worked out so poorly?

To play devil's advocate though, there's no doubt that vivisection helps to ensure freshness.

I dont get the outrage you could have known this since the physical pc version of hots does the same

Why are people against a code? Physical is great... But Overwatch gets updated so frequently that the data on the disks for the PC/Xbox/PlayStation versions might as well go in the bin anyway, it's all been superseded.

A number of people have to be mindful of their data usage so having the base version on a physical format does help especially as it comes in at 10GB.

Because you can sell a cartridge, but not a code. Also, if I pay for a physical copy, I want a physical copy. It's like, you know, common sense.

Never sold a game in my life... So have to admit, that valid point never crossed my mind.

And being a PC gamer, it's all digital anyway, which is Blizzards primary market, so I guess their line of thinking is that their approach to PC would be applicable to the console market.

Which is my point.
Overwatch gets updated extremely frequently with relatively large patches (In comparison to the size of the base install), if you buy the game after any amount of time after the games physical release, you are going to be downloading the entire game or large chunks of the entire game, you don't end up saving much.

In saying that, the Switch is portable, go bludge some Wifi, somewhere... It's not like it's super common these days!

That's a very wayward response as not everyone is in the position to bludge wifi off anyone some people live in more rural locations while others are in smaller towns and such where its not common, not everyone lives in a major city and even in developed countries there are many areas outside of major cities that don't share the same conveniences. Getting frequent patches doesn't debunk the point in that someone has paid for a physical copy to avoid having to download the base game otherwise the is no point in even selling a box with a code in it you may as well just make the game fully digital.

I live in a rural country town that is 8+ hours from a capital city, wifi is still common... So that argument doesn't hold much weight for me.

I mean I don't disagree that having a physical variant would be good. - But... Overwatch is an online only game, it gets patched frequently so the data on the cart will be made redundant very quickly... You need good internet to play the game anyway.

Again, I use the argument of the Origins edition on the Xbox One/Playstation 4. - All the data on that disk is outdated, old and useless, if you were to try and install the game again today, you would literally download the entire game anyway.

Anecdotal response as you don't represent the same situation millions of gamers have across many countries and areas.

Splatoon 2 is an online only game as well with patches still doesn't stop it having a physical cart, people do have good internet a number of people just need to be mindful of their data usage and weren't planning to sac an extra 10GB on the base game.

Again someone paid for a physical cart so saying the will be patches down the line doesn't debunk what people paid for.



This is the first time that I have heard the box comes without a cartridge. The initial download is just 12.1GB, so why would they go this cheap? Pretty odd.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

I keep hearing that they won't release it with a "Free Hongkong" Mei skin. It's a shame.
