Nintendo NX Might Ditch Disc Drives For Cartridges

I want to make a cartridge-blowing joke, but apparently that never actually did anything.

Nintendo has long played to it’s own tune, content to wait to deliver the surprising news over it’s upcoming Nintendo NX console in it’s own time. Yet one it’s biggest partners may have let slip about one of the consoles more interesting features آ– the notion that it may be doing away with game discs all together and replacing them with ROM cartridges (Similar to the 3DS). The speculation begins with Japanese Financial website Money-Link; which has indicated that Nintendo’s long time producer of ROM chips Macronix is expecting a bumper order from Nintendo in the latter half of this year for it’s products.
