    Doom Eternal with the helmet collectors ed. did the same - cardboard disc with a code for 240 bucks. and on top it required bethesda launcher instead of steam

    • emen3y

      they butchered the game anyway with the permanent ammo shortage ^^


    Imagine walking up to a gamestop* employee and saying “yes I would like to buy a fortnite” I have no problem with fortnite but... *fun fact until I edited this comment right after posting it this said gameshop lol, couldn’t remember the correct name

    Every human being should play Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. I saw .15 seconds of gameplay and now I wanna play it all over again. Snapping beans with that cowboy repeater is one of the most satisfying gaming experiences I've ever had.

  • Andy

    I like owning my games instead of owning a license that allows me to download and play 'em. Sure, the physical copies tend to be obsolete right out of the gate thanks to day 1 patches, but still, you've at least got a way to purchase and play a version of that game once it's taken off the digital store. It was nice to get to play games like Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 after Capcom's license expired, even without the updates and DLC.

  • SikoSoft

    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!

  • EGP

    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.

  • ThoMario86

    Some people say Nintendo hates Europe Others that it hates Latin America Some even say Nintendo hates Brazil, China, and even the USA. But we all can agree on one thing: Nintendo only loves Japan.

  • nicetoad

    I had lara croft and the temple of osiris on disc. Must’ve been different in Europe

    its almost like, not everyone in the world has internet, and yet, they still want to sell them games. how the fuck are you so ignorant to that? oh yeah, coz youre a first world boy, with no comprehension of the world outside your bubble........

    • Elijah Tang-Spigelman

      You'd still have to download the game through a download code...which requires internet...

    • schiggy2319

      So if they dont have internet, why sell them a game that requires internet? What's your point?

  • Matorum

    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.

      @dongodongo12 is it because it doesn't have the games you want, underpowered, last gen and is also a kids system?

    • dongodongo12

      @lol i know, that is why i said there are more reasons

    God, I remember seeing tons of those Sonic Manias, thinking "Ah that's cool..." then noticing it has a redeem code and immediately thought it was a terrible waste of money.

      @lol Yeah I have actually got the physical cartridge since then, but never got around to picking up that collector's edition. And likely never will. Would have if it came with the physical cartridge though!

    My favorite part about the Sonic Mania Collector's Edition was I got it at a midnight release. But I couldn't download it until the store updated the next day to allow me to download the game.

    I'm probably most annoyed with the Spyro trilogy on Switch. Despite only the first game being on the cartridge, you still have to insert the cartridge to play the second and third games that you have to download. That is madness in a box.

    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.

    Fun fact: The reason the bigger Switch games are the digital ones is because Switch cartridges are really expensive, especially the bigger sizes.

  • Suplyndmnd

    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.
