The current Switch cartridges hold 32GB, which is less than the 50GB that a Sony PlayStation 4 or Microsoft Xbox One game disc can hold. According to the report, Nintendo ran into "technical issues" with the 64 GB cards. With games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey hitting best of 2017 lists left and right, it's jam-packed with great games and ports of other titles that people have clamored for.

The Wall Street Journal's source told them that some software makers, particularly USA -based publishers making data-heavy games, were disappointed. Games like L.A. Noire, Doom and National Basketball Association 2K18 actually require another download with their cartridges, with the games being too big for 16-GB cards-and L.A. Noire is still an example of the "Switch tax", with the physical game being $10 more than the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 editions.

Nintendo did not respond to a request for comment.
