    So it will pack a storage, likely ssd, extra APU (zen and gcn 2.0), and use high speed interface (pcie + sata + power). Games not requiring too much horse power will only pack storage while 3a will vary on price. Major titles can only be played with cartridges unless you purchase an expansion cartridges priced a lot more than games.

    Au contraire, carts and other flash storage devices can hold up to several gigabytes, so.....argument invalidated lol. SD cards themselves have a max capacity of 2 TB.

    NX will have a disc drive sold separately.

    Umm no. What's wrong with just use Bluray discs like they do now? PS4 and xbone use Bluray and the NX won't outspec them.

    They'd have to pay a licensing fee for every game to the Blu Ray Disc Association, which is a very small fee.

    I love cartridges. If it loads as fast as OoT N64 at least.
