Why Nintendo Switch uses cards?

Nintendo preferred to use a different card system for the new Nintendo Switch by abandoning gaming CDs.


For the first time in Nintendo’s live broadcast on Friday, images about Nintendo Switch cards were shared. While it’s possible to have more details about the Nintendo Switch after this flow, Nintendo has made the choice of cards instead of CD’s in mind.



“CD is a Bad Choice on Mobile Devices”


CDs are standard game environments that are long for console games. However, this usage does not really overlap with their new portable model. Nintendo wants to offer a more portable and mobile device, reducing the solution even further by choosing small cards as previously foreseen. Otherwise, it is hard to say that it can be very useful for portable use of a future Nintendo Switch with CD use.



Moreover, playing a system with a CD to play and sometimes turning the side can lead to a fault reading the CD. Playing games in such a moment can be very challenging forĀ it. After the questions and criticisms on the agenda, detailed explanations came from the Nintendo’s side and the reason why the card was used with their new console was clearly expressed.


Switching to a card system with a switch can also create a current in the gaming industry. It is not difficult to store games on small cards, as there are storage solutions on the market that can be increased by 512 GB by brands like Samsung. It is even possible to say that CD cards can take their place when the biggest games are thought not to exceed 80 GB.
