@Woomy_NNYes I'd tell you when my copy arrives, but I just got the message it's been delayed. Which is fine by me, I played Astral Chain literally all weekend and I'm still nowhere near done with that game. I just hope they won't cancel it, I won't get my GCU discount if they do (I'll probably end up waiting until Black Friday for a sale)

We do know 8.7 GB is on cartridge out of 18, so that does suggest that Spyro 1 is playable like on other systems, but that's only for the EU version. The NA version may or may not have a different cartridge size.

Got it up and running. Very impressed with the port in general. I've only played undocked so far (don't have my dock with me atm).
The good thing is the framerate is near perfect and the resolution seems quite high. Dunno if it's 720p but it's probably quite close.
The bad thing is that some of the visuals are noticeably downgraded from the PS4. Some of the textures now look really bad, and the ambient occlusion effect is really low resolution so it looks very grainy and flickering as you move.
I happen to care a lot more about framerate and resolution though, so this is all fine with me!

@Woomy_NNYes

It does let you start without downloading. But on the box it says download required. The download is massive too.
I think it's the same situation as PS4. First game is on the cart and the other 2 are in the download. Or something like that. I've already downloaded the update though so can't be bothered to go back and test it.
All I care about is that the download is free and attached to the cart. I hate it when they give you a 1-time download code so it can only be used on 1 console. This way is better and means you can resell it or give it to someone else and they get the whole thing.

@Dezzy @link3710 thanks for replying forum friends. Yeah, I know the cart and download size.

I'm laser focused wondering if there are any full playable games on the cart?

Dezzy you're close I guess I'm looking for a confirmation of what's exactly on the cart, since I want to know what I'm buying. If it's not at least one full playable game, I'm going to skip buying physical. If there is at least one full playable game on the cart, being able to game share has appeal to me, so I may get the cart. Buy yeah, this whole Switch Spyro cart deal is anti-consumer poop

I don't know how exactly you can test what's on the card. I could delete the download update and just see what runs from the main screen if you want?

Nah. That sounds like a pain in the butt. Don't do that. It's a shame just having the cart doesn't answer, because you'd have to play through the full game to know. And you'd probably need to have played the full game before in order to know.

Since nothing official says how much is playable content on the cart (without download), I think that all this mystery means the playable game on the cart is not a full game. So, I think I'm done looking. You're info helped Dezzy, thanks.

Unless you want to be able to resell it after you've played it, I'd just go with digital.

I just downloaded the digital copy last night 9/2 and was able to play it around 10PM EST but omg the character models are horrible and some graphics around the worlds as well they look like someone cross stitched them like what artists use to shade in drawings and when loading a new world Spyro lags in mid flight for a good 2/3 seconds I’m so disappointed...

Got this up today. I played Spyro 1 to death as a kid but weirdly never picked up 2 or 3. Just played a few levels of the first and it was like riding a bike, as if the level layouts were tattooed in my brain.

I’m amazed how good it looks considering there had to be some downgrades. Really looking forward to playing 2 & 3.

The character models look pretty much identical to the PS4 ones. And does a frame stutter during a loading screen really matter?

You're right some of the environments look rough though.

Seeing as I had absolutely no problems with Crash what so ever it bums me out that the quality doesn’t compare to this game. Okay the lag when changing worlds, who cares, but the characters look awful I really wish I could post pics on here so you could see what I’m talking about. They look grainy even, no other switch game I own has graphics that make the character models look this way, hence the disappointment... @Dezzy

@Pfftfelipe

No idea what your actual complaint is. That looks pretty much the same as the PS4 version to me.

@Pfftfelipe I agree with Dezzy, those models look close enough to the PS4 versions from those pictures. If you don't like them, it's probably an issue with the game itself. Though, considering you didn't use the screenshot function (for whatever reason) it's hard to tell.

These proper screenshots show slightly lower resolution and less lighting, but that's about it.

I hope so, I know I’m not crazy lol I’m not one to usually complain.

I went physical.
So, you said all three games are definitely on the cart, right?
ha, I'm kidding, I'm kidding.
Yeah, I like having the ownership, granted it still requires a download. Now, I can sell it, share it, or taste it.

@Pfftfelipe Alright, now I can see it. It looks like some sort of dithering is going on. Which is... odd to say the least. I can't even speculate what would introduce noise into the image like that. Is it only in portable, or is it in docked too?

EDIT: As for the loading screen issue... I'm gonna just say you'll have to get over it. Toys for Bob made the right call in prioritizing loading speed over the smoothness of the loading animation. They're probably bottlenecking the Switch in either CPU or memory bandwidth, causing the hiccups. Not exactly a game breaker by any means.

As far as I can tell, it’s only in handheld mode. Like I said though I had no problems with Crash as far as graphics go which is why I’m so confused ):
