Is The Nintendo Switch's 16GB Standard Game Cartridge Size Big Enough For Games?
A recent rumor for the Nintendo Switch's game cartridges says that the standard size for the games will be 16 GB and some people are complaining that games will not fit because of this. Now while I know some games can be massive in size, most games are not over 16GB in size. Here are some games for example.
Wii U Games
Super Smash Bros 4 Wii U - 15.6 GB
Mario Kart 8 - 4.9GB
Super Mario 3D World - 1.66GB
The Legend Of Zelda Twilight Princess HD - 4.5GB
So a lot of games can be compressed into small sizes, but it doesn't mean all games can be compressed and still look good, but...
!!!Standard does not mean only!!!Just because the standard is 16 GB does not mean that's the only size they can make. Cartridges store data similarly if not exactly like SD cards and those can be made to store huge amounts of data even over 128GB.
Also cartridges have other abilities that discs don't have. See Here
