Rumors about Nintendo planning to use Cartridges instead of disk for their physical games have been going around for awhile now but Nintendo has never denied or confirmed any of the rumors.
According to The Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki, Nintendo will be using the cartridges. He said that his sources had revealed that the cartridges were chosen because they have a faster loading time and are easier to produce. It is also harder for people to copy cartridges so that is another added benefit.
Most people believe that the upcoming Nintendo NX console is actually a portable device that can also work as a console and cartridges would be a better choice if that is the case. If it is really a portable device, will it be as powerful as the PS4 or Xbox One?
Nintendo will only be announcing the Nintendo NX next year so all we can do now is wait.
