Aside from an apparently random GameStop bundle that sold out within a few hours, we haven’t had the Nintendo Switch in stock at any major retailer for months – and we’re looking literally every day. (The Switch Lite was less elusive, but only marginal. Selected stores in larger cities have occasionally provided a personal pickup.) If, despite COVID-19 supply chain bottlenecks, you have managed to find one and there is unprecedented demand, it are three things we want to tell you:
Think of yourself as * extremely * happy. If the U.S. were not yet navigating a global pandemic, we would recommend taking it to Vegas now.
Make sure you grab a microSD card at some point.
The latter occurs because the Nintendo Switch’s 32GB internal storage is extremely small – and if you haven’t noticed, you’ll do it as soon as you try to install more than three or four AAA titles. Personally, my partner and I could only fit Animal crossing: new horizons and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on our shared switch before the space between the game storage data and the system itself ran out. (We also bought Breath of the wild along with the console, but installing this 13.4GB colossus was out of the question until we found a microSD card for additional storage.)
If you want an excellent offer for a microSD card, you are at the right place at Best Buy. From June 14, many different sizes of SanDisk were offered there for up to 52% discount. You can find them below in order from smallest to largest:
(Note: “Ultra Plus” and “Extreme Plus” cards offer faster transfer speeds than the standard versions.)
