Should I buy switch games digitally?
The Digital Advantage
The most obvious benefit of downloading a digital copy of a game onto your console is the fact that it doesn’t take up any physical space.
You won’t have a shelf full of old Switch games that you never play anymore.
You also don’t have to worry about losing the cartridges.
Is it better to download switch games or buy cartridge?
Right now, Switch cartridges don’t even offer one of the best benefits of cartridges, which is that they can store data for transferring between devices. With the Switch, whether downloaded game or physical copy, all save data is stored on the console. There are other benefits to sticking with old-fashioned cartridges.
Do digital games take up more space switch?
Yes. Physical Switch games don’t get installed like PS4 games do so most of them take up little space. There are a handful of titles that don’t have the full game on the cart though, and require a download for the rest but those are still smaller than straight digital.
Are all switch games available digitally?
The Nintendo Switch offers both digital games you can download and physical games on cartridges. Digital games are convenient—you can buy them from home, download them instantly, and play immediately.
