Remember, NONE of the Take2 collections have complete games on the retail cards (except MAYBE Bioshock 1). And from I’ve been reading, there are NO compromises being made to help them fit onto retail cartridges. So the good part is that the games won’t have the dramatically compromised assets like Outer Worlds, or the compromised sound quality like Dark Souls. Bad part is that it makes them HUGE data hogs, regardless how you get them.
I’m already looking for a 1TB card for my Switch given the number of games I have AND the amount of data downloads I’ve need for games like MK11. Speaking of MK11, also note that the “retail package” does NOT have any cart. Just a download code.
Nintendo is running a big summer sale that would have tied into E3, had it not been cancelled. Major and first party titles are being marked down around 30%, older and tertiary titles getting as low as $5-10. Of particular note, almost all the “retro collections” are in the $10-15 ranges. Some solid indie stuff below $10 as well. The Resident Evil sale is still going on, and most are $13-15. Keep in mind that, in regards to 3rd party stuff, I’ve seen retail discounts that put prices on par with this sale. Walmart, in particular, maxes out their Switch titles at $50.
Thus far, I’ve picked up DMC, Icey, Implosion, and the Grandia Collection. I’m eyeballing a few more.
