RUMOR - Nintendo Switch supports Micro SDXC cards up to 128GB in size

This comes from a LetsPlayVideoGames report...

Where the New 3DS supported Micro SD up to 2GB and Micro SDHC up to 32GB, the Nintendo Switch development hardware supports Micro SDXC cards up to 128 GB in size. It is currently unclear if this upper limit will be reduced on the retail model, but the development model of the Switch does support running software directly off the Micro SD card as you would off the internal memory or a game cart.

In addition, a source close to the production of the Switch reveal trailer has informed us that the Micro SD slot on the Switch can be located underneath the handheld’s kickstand on the model shown in the reveal trailer.

UK retailers give their initial thoughts on the Nintendo Switch

These quotes come from a MCV article...

''It’s very Nintendo to bring something new and different to the market. The early third party list supporting the console is impressive. Let’s see what gaming brands are announced over the coming months.

The storage space is high up on the list of questions. The future is most certainly going the digital way for Nintendo as well. The storage will dictate the requirements for cartridges which are unclear at the moment.''
- ShopTo’s head of commercial Alison Fraser

''I was pleasantly surprised by the Switch reveal and I’m optimistic about it’s sales potential. I think it’s a significant step up from the Wii U and, with the third party support they’re boasting, will hopefully appeal to a very broad spectrum of consumers. I look forward to seeing more details around the specs and, crucially, price! With the more powerful and established PS4 and Xbox One consoles now hovering around £249, the Switch needs to be competitive.'' - Games buyer at HMV Nathan Allen

''Would running a game like Breath Of The Wild drain the battery quickly? The controllers look a bit small when they’re detached from the Switch, so will they cause discomfort?

Also, if Switch isn’t going to support 3DS or Wii U games, will this harm sales?''
- Gameseek’s Stephen Staley

REPORT - Renesas yet to overcome legacy of failed Wii U

TOKYO -- Nintendo unveiled earlier this month the concept of Nintendo Switch, its new portable gaming device that replaces Wii U, the Japanese maker's home console.

While the original Wii, launched in 2006, became a huge hit with sales of 101 million units, its successor Wii U was a flop -- with mere 13 million units sold.

Nintendo did not suffer alone, though. Renesas Electronics, the manufacturer of Wii U's key semiconductors, also took a hit, and the Japanese chipmaker has continued to struggle with the negative legacy of this failure.
