Hey guys, I have seen 4 GB news for the Switch according to Emily Rogers, the liar who is seemingly getting her reputation back as she starts to have more true rumors than lies.

She says its a GOOD thing that 4 GB is on the swtich because its a portable. No Emily, this is a hybrid, also a home console. 4GB is like 1/2 of XBOX ONE and PS4 standards of 8GB, woefully underpowered for a next gen system. I hope this is wrong or else.....

1. Old news.

2. I'm pretty sure those rumors of 4GB did not originate with Emily Rogers. I'm pretty sure she is just repeating the outburst of rumors around the time of the Switch presentation, saying that dev kits had 4GB RAM.

Not that big of deal. We still don't know how much Vram it has tho.Nintendo since at least Gamecube offers a separate pool.

Plus: Cartridges. They sit just slightly below RAM in terms of speed.

We should wait for official confirmation on things before reacting either way.

Saw this on youtube and now I can feel a little relieved about the 4gb, since this is cartridge based and not disc based, it does not need that much ram. Look at the full video above to see why, something Graham said similarly

There's not a lot I believe about new hardware news for any console until I hear it from the horses mouth. And up till now all they've given was a trailer and announced a date for more news (mid Jan).
