Buying Physical Copies of Games or Downloading Games - Which is better?
PC Game Supply is all about digital, so we really prefer the digital option. We think downloading the digital version of the game to be far more convenient then having to go to a physical retailer to buy a physical copy of a game. Just think of all the time you can save if you buy the digital copy. Another benefit of digital, is its always there, stored on your Nintendo account. You can never lose the digital copy of the game, where a physical version you can lose. You can re-download the digital version of the game to your Nintendo anytime.
How many switch games can you download to your Nintendo?
If you have the 128GB drive on your Nintendo, you can download anywhere from 25-128 games depending on the game you are downloading. Some games have a large file size where other games have a much smaller file size. If you need more space to download more games, you can purchase an additional micro SD drive. There is a good thread on the Nintendo Life forums that list every game and the size of that game. The thread is "How many games can I fit into 128 GB".
Are digital games more expensive then physical Nintendo games?
It really depends, for new releases the price will be the same. If you are a bargain hunter you may be able to find older games for a lesser price if buying the physical copy. However, this will take some time and effort as you will need to search for different stores that may have an older title available for less than MSRP. This tends to be the case for all physical items including movies, music, and games. Some retailers will be looking to move old stock and will discount a physical copy.
You can still save money and get deals on digital Nintendo games.
There are Nintendo sales and deals all the time for digital games. There is a page on the Nintendo web site dedicated to listing the current digital sales and deals. You can save up to 50% on some digital games, software bundles and DLC.
