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...
Where'd you bring it to?
lul my house, I'm an idiot.
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.
I think neonridr is referring to this: https://images.app.goo.gl/7...
yeah toxic-inferno has it there. I wasn't referring to the save the world mode which first released.
I never understood the point of "physical" copies like this. I do often buy physical games because I want to have them on a disc or cart or whatever, but if I can't have that then I may as well just go digital. Having something to display on my shelf is only part of it, and not the actual important part, which is I want to physically own the game. Otherwise, it's just a waste of plastic and other materials IMHO.
If the developers aren't making the actual cartridge why waste money just making a box with nothing in it. They can save more money just making it digital. Folks buy physical not just for the box but what's more important in the box which would be the game on the cartridge or disc.
You buy the physical copy because the online shop prices are astronomical. Every release day there is a minimum of $20 to be saved on Xbox/PlayStation games by buying the physical copy instead, and $15 minimum for anything on Switch. It's just ridiculous why this is the case, but I'd rather the extra $$ to spend on something else thanks
I don't mind partial downloads, but Borderlands takes it to an extreme... As for Bioshock, seeing as it's a 16 GB cart, I hope the portion we download isn't extreme... I'll wait of course to find out how much space it will require before I decide to purchase
Completely agree. If the carts don't contain a single full game, may as well download the whole lot.
I can't belive how people are ok with this. You are paying money for a physical game. The full game should be on the cart. I mean all games in the collection. I was really mad too when I got FFX collection. And X-2 was a code.
