    As far as I can tell, the Nintendo Switch cartridges can't even hold more than 32GB. They could have been decent and provided you two cartridges, one for each Resident Evil game, but instead thought it makes sense to make the consumer buy their own cartridge (in the form of a micro SD card) if they wanted to play the second game. They literally just threw the cost of playing that game back to whoever purchased it to provide their own storage medium to do so.

    I actually don't mind additional downloads AS LONG as there is a gamecard with the license to all the content. My main problem with these bundles / separate download codes is that parts of your purchase are forever bound to your Nintendo account, and this eliminates the full resale value. Heck, I would be okay if Nintendo produces a cartridge with only 64MB so you basically have to download the full game, as long as the cartridge acts as the license for the game!

    8:35 I'll never understand how Americans can't pronounce Lara. Funny thing is the developers changed her name from Laura to Lara to reduce confusion since they thought Americans would pronounce Laura as Lara. Turns out the opposite happened and over 20 years later Americans are still saying "Laura" lol.

    They dont give you physical disks/Cartriges so you cant resell the games. Reselling loses gamecompanies money, cause they lose customers to the second hand market. The empty boxes serve probably as advertisement in Gamestop/Target/Wallmart etc.

    Have you guys seen Mortal Kombat 11 for the Switch? I have it. 60 bucks not well spent for a physical copy… only to have to download EVERYTHING in your switch. I had to get an SD card for this thing and it STILL kept wanting to update or download something! I only wanted to play against CPUs anyway.

    I don't know of a video in the multiple hundreds of gigs. I'm not saying I know the size of all games, but when Warzone was 150gb I thought I heard this was the largest game file ever. Also, warzone being huge doesn't mean all games are getting massively bigger. Ratchet and Clank and Returnal were both around 40gb.

    On xbox, you can share downloaded games with one other person so i think that helps digital popularity. It eliminates the cost of access for these players and these players will then continue to purchase micro transactions thus creating revenue where previously cost of access put off potential purchases.

    Fortnite stuff is done that way, Apex Legends too, because kids play them and parents, rightfully so, don't want to put their credit card information in for them. So they buy it/skins/etc for them to redeem a code. That way you can control what happens with your kids accounts and money without letting them have access to a credit card.

    I personally don't mind this too much. I tend to prefer digital games these days as a lot of games basically have 0 data on the disc and basically require the full download onto the console, but you still need to put the disc in, which is just dumb, the reason I liked physical was it took up less space on your consoles storage. At the same time, having the packaging is nice, because its cooler to have a box on your shelf than just an image on your console's home screen. This provides a decent balance of both. As someone who's also a PC gamer, its something decently relevant as physical copies are pointless since nobody has a disc drive anymore, but not having a box is still lame, so some companies allow you to buy a physical digital which allows you to be able to throw a box up on your shelf but still have your digital PC game. I definitely see why people would hate this though

Back at home, I have no internet connection I live in the mountains. Can somebody tell me the games where I need to download patches to enjoy single-player properly? For example I think Shemmue 3 needs a day 1 patch to work smoothly on PS4. Can anyone give me more examples? I am super lost. I´ve been out of big console gaming for years.. Any help could work.

    The season pass disc issue where you buy the game disc only to digitally download the majority of the content afterwards, is an issue I've noticed a lot of physical games have in general and I think that will only get worse if the early access, release now and fix later trend continues. It's a pain to buy a disc and put it in just to wait hours to download updates and patches that are bigger and have more content than the game itself, just to be able to play it online with friends or in many cases at all. That might be the nail in the coffin for physical releases as one of the biggest benefits of a physical game is being able to play it then and there
