Since the launch of the Switch, physical releases requiring excessive downloads has been a major talking point. It admittedly makes owning actual hard copies of games a tad pointless - unless you want to display them on shelves, loan them to friends or perhaps resell them later down the line. 

A post on pcmag.com points out Switch owners won't have to worry about this problem with Blizzard's recently announced Diablo III Eternal Collection. The Switch release will reportedly fit all of its content - including the Reaper of Souls expansion and Rise of the Necromancer DLC - onto a single game card, with no downloads required. It means you'll literally be able to buy the game at your local video game retailer, insert the card into your Switch and play the game. As trivial as this may sound, it's a sign of changing times when it is so frequently publicised. 

Are you relieved to find out Diablo III Eternal Collection won't require an internet download to play? Do you think downloading part of a game is just a harsh reality of modern gaming? Could other developers and publishers perhaps make more of an effort? Leave your thoughts below.
