Nintendo Switch is not a console for digital games

During the day yesterday, new details were revealed about the content and how the Nintendo Switch will work. One of its most criticized aspects is the fact that the console only has 32GB of storage, accompanied by a card reader. It is not for less when most of the consoles of the present generation oscillate between 500Gb and 1TB of internal storage, a clear bet on the digital video game and the offers of the subscription plans are to blame. However, Nintendo does not seem to be convinced by the digital game. New details have emerged about what Nintendo's digital shopping system will look like and they are not exactly good. 

Nintendo has confirmed three digital games for launch day, which are Fast RMX, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. However, it seems that you are not going to leave the store without a card to provide extra storage, and it is that according to the latest leaked data, you will not even be able to store one of these games in the memory included in the Nintendo Switch natively.

Another bad news is that Virtual Console, Nintendo's supposed retro console emulator for the Switch, will also not be available for the release date.

These latest movements are not sitting well with a wide range of players who want to be able to enjoy their digital content wherever they go, nothing further, and the latest news on this issue on Nintendo Switch is that video games They cannot be installed on more than one console, that is, will remain in your library, but only available to the console linked to the account. We do not want to imagine what will happen if your console breaks, or simply if you have several at home.
