      I'd rather have palm sized carts than little SD cards that can get lost easily.

        I'd rather be able to take my entire collection somewhere in a little booklet than a giant crate of carts. It's your fault if you lose shit

          These carts are for a PlayStation or Xbox style console, not a handheld like the Switch.

            Doesn't matter, I don't want to bring a fucking crate when I want to play games at my friend's house.

              How many games are you bringing to your friend's house? Are you staying there the whole week?

                The point is with small modern cartridges I can easily bring my entire collection anywhere and let people go through tons of games to decide what we want to play together, but if it's giant carts I have to bring a whole crate of them for that

                Then take more. These carts are still not that big.

                The point is you could just have a small carrier case's of ALL your games if you use cards.

                Why don't we just sell an attachment that's a fake cartridge that's just an extension chord shaped like a cartridge and you can play pretend?.

                It has to insert directly into the console.
                Therefore I would need to make a whole new docking case I can put a Switch inside.

                I'm only laughing because the guy on the right looks like an absolute gay, it's just a good image for demonstrating the bare minimum you'd probably need for your fake cartridge dock, that provides enough support for that satisfying insertion from the old handhelds without risking dislodging the actual card insertion.

                What in the 80s nostalgia autism makes you think anyone wants their games on a cartridge to begin with? Go suck a vinyl record store owners balls.

                Just give me a plastic case the size of the OG Xbox to put the entire freakin' switch inside of and connect it to a bunch of ports, including a fake cartridge slot in the front for me to put the little SD cards in my fake cart cases and use.

                Would not need to be nearly that big. You only need the tablet piece of the switch. An SNES size case would be plenty big enough.

                An to be honest I believe there would be actual real world legit money in an aftermarket switch dock that had a strong NES/SNES aesthetic that made it look like a proper console instead of the gayry that is the OEM dock.
                But it would use a simple extension cable for the external cartridge slot (plug one end in the switch and run to an external slot on the case).

                Maybe someone already made it idk.

                What you're asking for is a stupid fucking idea. It's cool when you have the novelty of one game like the pic related, but you're essentially saying we should make the entire library more cumbersome because you can't let go of nostalgia.

          Okay. That can be accommodated.
          The little SD card in the OP is removable, and the console has a secondary SD slot for using this size. So players can use the big case (which might have space for a booklet too) or the small size depending on their preference.

              A nice sturdy cart feels good in the hand and feels good inserting into the system. It differentiates the console from other electronics devices you use. It looks good sticking up from the middle of the console. A stack of carts adds a comfortable aesthetic to a gaming room.

                Nostalgiafags have gone too far
                This is such a tiny market niche concept that it would be completely retarded for any software maker to ever add it

    No, I'd prefer it, for a few reasons:
    1. It's not as easy to lose them if they're bigger.
    2. Resembles SOULFUL times.
    3. It'd be better than having Blu-Rays yet again.

    Why wouldn't the actual chip be at the bottom of the cartridge? Those long connections just seem easy to snap if you drop it.

    I'd be more bothered by the fact that despite being a physical cartridge it would still make you validate online and log in to three services and you could also just download it instead. Carts were cool but their time has passed and it's not coming back.

    I don't see any particular reason at all why you could not:

    1. Build a PC in a console-style HTPC case.
    2. Incorporate a 2.5" hot-swap bay for SSD.
    3. Install your games onto a SSD and print out an artwork sticker to go on it.
    4. Buy some SSD cases and do up some artwork for them.
    5. Play games off the SSD at your leisure, steam should recognize them as being installed as soon as you plug or unplug a drive (I'm about 90% sure it has this functionality already built-in for use with external drives).

    It wouldn't even be that expensive. 128gb SSDs are like $15 shipped on ebay. I think given sales prices of PC games you *might* even be able to beat console disc prices a lot of the time even counting buying a new SSD just for that game.

    I definitely think GBA cartridges were like the absolute minimum size that a game cartridge can reasonably be before it just starts disappearing into floor vents non-stop
