Sorry if this is stupid but I was wondering because a Sandisc 128gm Micro SD card is $40 on Amazon, but the one that says “for the Nintendo Switch” is $60. Am I able to use the first one? Or is the last one more expensive because it’s the only one you can use?

Pretend the Nintendo ones don't exist. It is literally a scam
I use inverted controls. Also I hate fandoms.

Thankfully I don't think even the craziest fanboys on here condone the overpriced cards. At least until I said this

The Nintendo one is literally only more expensive because it has the Nintendo logo on it, AND you can ONLY use it for the Switch, it doesn't even function as a normal SD card.

The Sandisc will work fine, that's the kind that I have.

Make sure you are buying it from Amazon themselves and not a 3rd party re-seller selling on amazon, LOTS of fakes out there.

It should say "Shipped and sold by Amazon" and not just "Fulfilled by Amazon"

Calm down, buddy. You're showing traits of paranoia.
Please do not @ me, thanks.

Also, check the type of microSD card

Not true. Why say anything if you don't know what you're talking about.

The Nintendo branded SD cards work in any other device that accepts micro SD cards.

I said that in a eye rolling way cause I assumed a contrarian would come in and defend the scam cards
