Nintendo Switch - L.A. Noire

Hi, thanks for opening this week's issue of Switch Weekly.

L.A. Noire coming to the Switch turned heads this week - it's the first Rockstar game to come to a Nintendo platform in over seven years.

However, the announcement also shone a fresh light on one growing 'issue' with the Switch - cartridge cost. It's a point any old Nintendo fan will be aware of - generally producing a cartridges is more costly than a CD, so games for the Switch may end up costing more. I've linked up an article below which looks at this 'Switch tax' in more detail.

Thanks for reading,
