A physical release for Bioshock and Borderlands games on the Switch sounds nice, but the story changed after certain details emerged.

There would be no point in trading the physical copies in since the digital codes will be cashed in for the remaining games in the collection. I bought FFX for the Switch knowing it has a digital code for the second game not sure what the expiry date on the code is. But like the article says it's mainly for collectors who want to display them. I'd rather have two game carts for a collection then having one cart and a digital code would be nice if Nintendo would up the storage on the game carts.

True, however I brought the physical Tetris 99 game so...

Digital codes as part of a physical release is a disgrace. Didn't they do that with spiro trilogy?

I just bought Spyro for my wife. It has the whole first game on cart and bits of the second and third. It downloads the remaining without a code. Basically like an update. That's how it should be done if they are going this route because even if it has to download the entire game you still have to have the cart in the console in order to play.

I agree! Good to know too! I havent opened my copy of Spyro yet :)

No point in giving Randy your money anyway.

then again, Fortnite was sold as a physical release which was a F2P game with a few cosmetic items thrown in to justify them charging for it.

At least the Outer Worlds changed their tune and released physical.

Much like the Mega Man collections and Resident Evil Revelations, you get part of the game physically and then the other half digitally.

Fortnite when they released it physically was before they released the f2p battle royal mode. Save the world which was on the disk is what cost money and still does cost money.

Shortly after they released the f2p battle royal mode they took the physical version off shelves and now it's pretty rare.

yeah toxic-inferno has it there. I wasn't referring to the save the world mode which first released.
