    Sorry that the title / thumbnail / marketing for this video is directed towards the Fake Direct which I don't start talking about until half way through, but it I tried to do ''LABO VR, PERSONA 5 ON SWITCH, MY FAKE DIRECT, WOLFENSTEIN EMPTY CASE?!'' Or something like that for the title and it just sounded like a bunch of random words strung together. ''Beatemups Gaming News'' sounds too boring. So I went a little overboard on the clickbaityness here and i'll be the first to admit that. Hope you enjoyed the video regardless! Jordan and I put a lot of work into it!

    Love you guys!

      You said that you did the trailer best. Have you seen IGN's trailer?

      And about the game cartridges, They can theoretically fit at least 2TB (terabytes) of data, that's 2048 GB, it's based on the SDXC standard. Compare that to Bluray that can fit 300 GB on a six layer disc.

      About the trend towards forced downloads of games: I have to spend money on the game and then also on an SD-card that I didn't need to begin with. And then the day Nintendo closes down the eStore (as they've done with Wii recently) and you want to play the game again for memories, you're out of luck, the game you spent money on is gone, forever! If this trend continues, and I can't buy physical copies that will work long after the support of the console is gone, I'm forced to find other solutions. Think about if nobody could play old NES, SNES, N64, PS1, PS2 games because the support for the console is gone. Your game collection of physical games is taking up lots of space in your book shelf, but non of them can be played as Nintendo, Sony, Sega and Microsoft closed down the online stores and the authentication servers.
      I'll gladly pay more for the physical game, as long as it will work in 10, 20 or 30 years. But if I have to keep a copy downloaded to an SD-card at all times it's really bad and not in my interest. I buy brand name SD-cards (Sandisk, Sony, Samsung, Kingston and Lexar) but all of them fail after a couple of years of writing to them (in phones, cameras, game consoles etc, Sandisk is by far the worst). Writing once and then only reading from it is fine, but as the Switch uses it to store save data they will fail at some point.

    It's AMAZING to see how much of this has become true since you put out the video. 20 SNES games, The Witcher port, kind of a Zelda maker (Link's Awakening dungeon builder), botw 2... Although I'm still angry about p5s being such a scam, I bet Altus knew exactly what they were doing.

      I think most of it should be on the cart or as much as they can fit for two reasons.
      1. its a physical copy should have some part of the game on it if I wanted to download the game id buy it digitally.
      2. some people live in areas where high-speed internet isn't an option so it would take them a few days to download the game, it is one of the things I look at seeing how I live outside of the city and the best I can get is five meg down in 2019 so with that being said any amount of the game that doesn't have to be downloaded helps, I rather sit for one to two hours downloading a gig or two instead of a day or two for the whole thing.

      2.5 after thought anything that saves space on the sd card helps as well lol.

                      I only buy physical if I have to so a software death doesn't kill all my games... and if a game were to be digital in physical box that seems really pointless because the physical edition still dies

I buy physical games to save some memory space. I don't like the idea that I go and buy a game thinking I'm saving some memory space only to find that I needed half the game downloaded. Especially cause we all know that a month from the release date of a game there will be an update that will take a good chunk of memory space too. Switch hasn't been so bad about one game taking up a huge chunk. But I have another console that is not even a year old. I bought it brand new and got the "upgraded version" that is supposed to have extra harddrive memory space and it is down 70% from only TWO downloaded games and a yearish worth of physical games. I feel bamboozled a bit to find how much memory space a game is taking when it's a physical copy.
