The advantage of buying a physical game for the Nintendo Switch is that users need not to download anything from the internet, instead all you need is to slide in the cartridge and start playing. That is what we all thought. It seems that will not be the case with Lego City Undercover.
With the physical copy of Lego City Undercover you will also need to download 13GB of data in order to play the game. This means that you are not getting any advantage of buying a physical copy as you will still need to download a huge chunk of the game later on.
Why is this a big issue you ask? Seeing how the Nintendo Switch comes with only 32 GB of internal storage this game alone will be taking up almost a third of that storage which is not good at all.
Some Reddit users made their concerns very clear and the following is what one of them had to say:
This explains why the game size is listed as 7GB when the Wii U version was 19GB. 7GB on the cart plus 13GB download equals 20GB. This is also completely unacceptable. And will affect my purchase of the game.
Another issue is the cost of the game, even thought the game has better graphics on the Nintendo Switch, Lego City Undercover costs $59.99.
This is what you pay for a new AAA game. Considering that the game came out four years ago this is too much of a price to pay. I for one cannot justify paying so much for a game that is so old.
PC gamers know that games become cheaper with time and 4 years is a lot of time, in the same amount of time a game can easily drop to half the price and in many cases a quarter of the original price.
Let us know what you think about this issue regarding Lego City Undercover and whether or not you are willing to pay this much for such an old game only to play it on the Nintendo Switch.
