What advantage is there?
Hardcore - We'll probably be modded for this...

Is there any disadvantage of buying a Japanese Switch instead of a Western Switch?

Non that I can think of.
The Switch system itself is region free, and you can different profiles set to different regions.
Only reason to get one would be price, but with S/H/P, it might just be cheaper to get a local one.


Thank you

- System memory: 32GB (micro SDXC cards compatible up to 2TB)


Wait... do 2 TB micro SDs even exist? If so, where could I find them?

I've done that twice now.

It's a bit hard to remove, but once it's off and put on properly, I've never had any troubles.

I got it off, but I heard it ****s up the joycon's grip that they can slide off your Switch in portable mode. I have mostly kept it docked, so I don't know if mine are that way.

Thank you.

By the way, Does anyone know if those cheap US$20 128 GB micro SDs from Hong Kong on eBay are trustable? Or are they low quality stuff just like most of things from China?

I wouldn't, it's easy to fake them, and sometimes VERY hard to tell one is not genuine until it suddenly goes bad (and/or suddenly melts in place!)

You get what you pay for, I personalty would rather grid my teeth and pay a bit more at a store in my own town, or at a trustworthy retail store (amazon/newegg/etc) then get something like that, that's that important from a place as eBay/china.
Once you do get one, I'd suggest you then use a program like 'h2testw' to test/verify the micro-SD card is genuine/proper capacity and works without issues.

If you have an android tablet/phone, the app 'SD Insight (by HumanLogic)' via google play store, also checks to verify it's genuine, and is also free to use.

I got a game with a sticker on the cover that reads: Internet download required. microSD card may be aquired.

Where do I go to get the download for this game? Do I have to go to the eShop?
I got nothing witty to say.
