    That may be true but given the rise of digital sales in the gaming industry, Nintendo cant expect us to fork over as much as the system itself to have a decent library of games digitally. I mean sure sd cards can hold a lot of data but their also really expensive when compared to USB HDD. If the tablet holds a memory card slot and that's the only way to expand storage, then that's a really tough sell for Nintendo.

    It's pretty bulky, maybe it'll be able to have an upgraded internal drive, like xbox and playstation can. Also, maybe they'll have multiple storage options, like the Wii U.

    Vita uses cartridges. When was the last time you saw a real flashcart for that? (Blackfin doesn't count)

    You have a point, but it will take some skill to fit that microsd in there(lengthwise), but who knows, these tiny cartridges can pack a punch

    that would fit in a switch cart, even if the components needed to make a flashcard couldn't fit inside the switch cart slot there would be nothing stopping it from poking out the top, or wrapping around the back of the console similar to the psp hard drive from datel
    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    that said it's just as possible we see a softmod released first and nobody ever makes a flashcard.......or maybe there will be no hacks ever :rofl:

    Maybe, but I bet my bucket there will be hacks (they said there would be no hacks for 3ds, but look at us now!) anyway, I think softmod is pretty cool :P
