Physical Copy Of Overwatch For The Nintendo Switch Isn't Actually 'Physical'

Just like most video games, the Nintendo Switch supports both physical and digital copies of games. This means that gamers who prefer using cartridges have the option to buy it, while those who prefer digital copies can buy and download them online, so it’s not surprising that Blizzard’s Overwatch for the Switch also comes in physical form.

However, it seems that it isn’t really a physical copy of the game. According to reports, it appears that while you can buy a “physical” copy of the game for the Switch, what’s inside the box is actually a download code for the game. This means that you will still need to download the digital copy when you get home.

EA Claims The Nintendo Switch Isn't A Good Fit For Its Games

The company went as far as holding off on development on the Switch, and now it looks like they seem to think that they made a bad decision. During a recent investor’s call, EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson hinted that EA’s games might not necessarily be a good fit for the Switch.

According to Wilson, “We have a lot of data that would suggest a great many Switch owners also own a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One or a PC and very often choose to play the games that we make on those platforms, even though they have a Switch and they enjoy a lot of great content on the Switch.”

Xbox Boss Shows Camaraderie By Saying E3 Isn't As Good Without Sony's Presence

It’s no secret that as far as consoles are concerned, Microsoft and Sony are rivals with their Xbox and PlayStation platforms respectively. For years, both companies have enjoyed a healthy rivalry and it shows, especially this year where Xbox boss Phil Spencer showed his competition some camaraderie.

Speaking in an interview with Giant Bomb, Spencer was quoted as saying, “I wish Sony was here. E3 is not as good when they’re not here.” For those unfamiliar, Sony was not present at E3 2019. The company had confirmed back in 2018 that they would not be making an appearance at E3 this year.

Sony has taken a lot of flak recently from gamers over its stance on cross-play. Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida tried to explain the company’s reasoning behind the move at IFA 2018 by saying that one of the main reasons why cross-play isn’t supported on its platform is because the PlayStation 4 offers the “best experience” for gamers compared to the other platforms. That remark has earned a response from Xbox engineering lead Mike Ybarra who says that Sony “still isn’t listening to gamers.”

Toyota Yaris iA, Mazda CX-3 sales show crossover formula isn't an automatic win

While 2017 was another watershed year for crossovers, in one interesting case, a crossover had its lunch eaten by its sedan counterpart. In the past year, Toyota sold nearly 36,000 Yaris iAs, a sedan that is identical to the foreign-market Mazda2 in everything but Toyota's ugly front bumper. In the same time frame, Mazda sold just over 16,000 CX-3s, a subcompact crossover based on the Mazda2. Not only that, but the Yaris iA saw an increase of around 8,000 units over 2016, and the CX-3 sold about 2,000 fewer units than in 2016.
