Nintendo NX may use old-school cartridges – and that’s great | WOW247 So Nintendo supposedly has a new console coming out after they butchered the Wii U release and doomed it for its entire existence. The NX is rumored to be going back to cartridges, which I would fully be on board with. I have old Genesis, NES, and SNES games that still work no problem. All you have to do is clean them out with Qtips and Windex every now and then and those things last forever. God forbid you drop a disk. One scratch and you're doomed. I'm also not too keen on the whole digital trend that the PS5 and Xbox Whatever will more than likely go. I like having hard copies of games.
