Splatoon 2 PC Free  Download
The video games industry is in the middle of a transition from physical to digital download games. Not all gamers want this to happen as they prefer physical media, but the download market is growing. Nintendo is clearly aware of this divide among consumers, so an experiment is being carried out at the launch of Splatoon 2 for the Switch.
Splatoon 2 PC Free Download
According to Kotaku(Opens in a new window), when Splatoon 2(Opens in a new window) launches on July 21 consumers in Japan will have three different physical purchase options: standard, download version, and game card free version. Standard is your typical boxed copy with a cartridge inside, while the download version is a cardboard sleeve containing a download code.
The experiment involves that third card free version. It's the standard retail box, but inside there is no game cartridge. Instead, Nintendo is including a download code. The reason for this is Nintendo realizes some gamers want the physical copy of the game on their shelf, but want the convenience of a game they can play without having to insert a cartridge first.
While having this choice may be welcomed by some gamers, what nobody will like is the price. Nintendo decided to offer all three versions for exactly the same price of 6,458 yen (about $58), trying to suggest there's no difference in the value on offer. I tend to disagree. Owning a game on a physical cartridge for Switch(Opens in a new window) strikes me as being worth more than a downloaded copy forever linked to a single account.
For now, this three version experiment is only being tried in Japan and only for Splatoon 2. However, it's a game that's sure to be a big hit and therefore should give Nintendo good feedback on whether card free games sell well.
Nintendo's 3.0 update will be a free download for all Splatoon 2 players, and is scheduled to launch today, April 24th, at 6pm PDT in the US. However, time differences mean that we won't be seeing it here in the UK until 2am tomorrow, Wednesday April 25th.

I love this game so much, and now it's not that popular which makes me sad. It's a perfect online co-op game, and it holds a special place in my heart. I usually play on mobile because it's free on the app store, but I love when I play it on PC, me and my family used to play it every night, and it was really fun. I love this game so much, and I hope the next update is good! ? 041b061a72
