Can New Nintendo Switch System Run The Latest And Upcoming Games Using Game Cartridge? New Game Console Will Use 16GB Cartridges
Nintendo has yet to release the upcoming "Nintendo Switch" early next year. Nintendo revealed its specs that is said to be a replacement for Nintendo 3DS with more high-detailed games.
Nintendo is now gearing up again to compete against the Microsoft Xbox One and the Sony Playstation 4. The new "Nintendo Switch" will launch next year packed with very unique features.
As per BGR, aside from being a hybrid-type of game console, the "Nintendo Switch" will also feature a 6.2-inch touchscreen display capable of 720p HD resolution. This means that the "Nintendo Switch" is the first video game console to have a feature similar to an iPad or tablet.

The "Nintendo Switch" is more like a combination of the Sony PSP, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, iPad and the next generation video game console. Other than that, what makes the "Nintendo Switch" a unique gaming machine is that it will not use the famous optical disc, instead, the "Nintendo Switch" will use the retro game cartridges.
With this, of course, you don't have to ask if the "Nintendo Switch" can play Blu-Ray disc. According to the Uber Gizmo, the "Nintendo Switch" will use a 16GB game cartridge. The question is, how would the "Nintendo Switch" run a game like Skyrim, which is known to have more 20GB file size. Let's leave that question for now.
In a report by Tech Radar, the "Nintendo Switch" might face a trouble in the market in the long run. As far as we can see, the games released earlier this year boast of having very high details on graphics. The "Nintendo Switch" would have to compete and make sure that can run such games, especially the upcoming games in the next couple of years.
Let's just hope the Nintendo have great plans ahead for the "Nintendo Switch" and is well prepared to compete. As of the moment, the "Nintendo Switch" might be one of a kind hybrid console, but it still has to prove something until next year.
