the PS Vita managed that. And the Switch is a system with downloads 3, 4 times (likely way more as the years go on) as big as the Vita's largest downloadable game....

On the Vita, if the internet got cut out while downloading, the Vita would automatically set the download to pause, and once the internet was reconnected, you could resume it from where it left off without corrupting the file. I did it this way at Burger King WAAAAAAAAY BACK when I was download Final Fantasy VII. It took like 5 hours to download like half the file. I paused it when my battery got too low. Went home. Charged it, and the next day I went back and downloaded the other half. The whole game downloaded just fine and I've since finished the entire game.

Why the hell are you calling it a Ninty Switch? The rest of your post isn't exactly lacking in letters...

Never. You've insulted us all on this day, and that is something we can never forget.

What are you talking about? The Switch does pause downloads. I don't know how to manually do it though, since the only options are Cancel Download and Close IIRC.

But the scenario you posted is also possible on the Switch. Take it from someone who lives in a place with s***ty internet. If the Switch didn't allow resuming of downloads, I won't have any digital games on my device.

I don't know how it works though, because putting it to sleep mode doesn't allow downloading but letting the switch go into sleep mode naturally does. I might be doing something wrong

I remember having that problem way back. But recently... I just put it to sleep, and the download just continues on its own.

I know for sure that it's like that for the Vita though.

I had that problem too where the Switch wouldn't download in sleep mode but I just recently had to put the Switch in sleep mode while still having a download going so I was thinking I would have to finish the download when I came back but I was surprised when I came back and woke the Switch up and found out the download had finished while I was gone.
