Bigger game cartridges cost more, but would alleviate the need for an extra microSD card and internet downloads

If you been buying your Switch games in physical form, you are most likely upset by now, that alot of games require an MicroSD and nice big download as most developers are using the 8gb or 16gb cartridges and alot of Switch games are over 24gb now, and two reasons for that is 32gb cartridges are more costly for the developers, and also big 'N' is delaying the 64gb ones until year 2019.

Over the years gaming has evolved in more than one way, generating several different branches which all got redefined in time.

One of these branches is video gaming, whose first forms can be traced back to the 70s when 64-bit consoles were all the rage. Since then, video gaming has come a long way, which is why today we are able to play high caliber games with stunning 3D graphics across different consoles.

Briefly about Virtual Reality Gaming

The evolution of video gaming has been truly intriguing, resulting in about 70 different gaming consoles to date. However, video gaming took another turn which not many people expected and now we find ourselves in a complete new era. The era is none other than the virtual one.

Virtual Reality provides exceptional gaming experience...
