Can someone help me, when I trade in my og switch at gamestop do they need the Sd card too?
No, you should keep the SD card for yourself. The switch doesn't come with an SD card in the package, GameStop will not be expecting any sort of SD card in a switch trade in.
I would just get a battery pack. There are some that clip directly onto the Switch.I currently own an original Nintendo Switch model (2017). I have been playing a lot in handheld mode for games like Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Dragon Quest XI S -- it really feels good to play that way. However, I'd like to mention that whenever friends come, we play on the TV, so the Nintendo Switch Lite isn't an option here unfortunately.
I read that the new version of the Switch has a very improved battery life, so I am very interested on that. Nonetheless, I am not sure if I should just wait for the possible "Pro" version announcement. That extended battery life would prove quite useful but if there is a better version on the horizon, I guess it would be better to wait, right? Best case scenario would be to get the new version and then sell it when a Pro version comes around -- in case it does.
TLDR: Is the extended battery life Nintendo Switch worth it if I already own an original Nintendo Switch that I use to play on the TV when friends come but that I use as a handheld the rest of the time?
I keep my Switch docked 24x7 with the Ethernet adapter (which I purchased directly from Nintendo's US online store). The Switch does not "overheat". It is merely warm. It's harmless.
Pro Controller is IMO leaps better than PS4 at least. Don't have SF30, but if you want to decide between those two I'd choose Pro any day.
Game saves are in internal storage.So it looks like im about to run out of space on my SDcard in my Switch. Has anyone here had to upgrade to a larger SDcard and deal with transferring the data from the old one to the new one? Reading the guide on Nintendo's website now and man lol. All I care about is the save game data, I can always just redownload the actual games. Can I use the Cloud Save Data thing to do this if I sign up for the Online service?
Switching and upgrading to a larger microSD card is easy. Basically drag and drop, and that's it. Nothing else to it. Unless, you don't have a PC and something to connect the microSD card to it...So it looks like im about to run out of space on my SDcard in my Switch.

Not 100% on this, but I think it can take a little while before things fully sync up, likely dependent on how many records you had transferred over.So... bought a Switch Lite and made it my primary and then downloaded a number of games and installed games via Cards... does the Time Played not carry over? Seems to on some games but not all. Some where I had well over 100 hours played now say "Started 10 min ago" or something like that. Will it update to the correct time played after 10 days?

Just so frustrating how Nintendo half asses everything it seems. I have 3 Xbox Ones and they just sync and work, stats and all.I’m not sure how it works at all.
I did a System Transfer when I got the New Switch from my old one and my Play History hours carried over, but if I go into view all all sort by Most Played it only organizes by the games I’ve played the most on the new system.
My Switch Lite which I only logged in to my account on shows all the games I’ve played and all their hours even if they’re not downloaded to the system. I’m not yet sure if it combines the hours played on each system together.
Tempered glass screen protectors are always the way to go, very easy to apply and more protective.Just did a system transfer from OG switch to my new switch lite. Love it so far!
should I get a screen protector though?
never had one on my original model because it was always in a carrying case. Haven’t found a good switch lite case yet but I am working on that
even with case, is it still worth it?
I used to had putting them on older handhelds because I could never get it aligned perfect and you’d get bubbles and dust under it
But I heard they make “glass” ones for switch that don’t scratch as easy and apply just fine. Thoughts?
You mean like Dragon Quest XI? That one impressed me a lot.I just got a Switch Lite. I never really used my OG switch, on account of not really caring for Docked play and the fact that most of the games on the system I already owned on other consoles (Wii U and PC), but I am seriously digging the Lite. I picked up the Amnesia collection and Planescape just to give them a swing on the system and thought they were pretty impressive!
I generally don't like to play things on systems other than PC if I can help it, but I might start using this lite for things like VNs, older ports, and things that don't really have extra features like cheevos or stuff.
The original switch was shocking as a handheld experience, but it wasn't until playing Amnesia on the Lite that I was like "whoa, this is *full fledged real gaming* on a handheld." Yes, the Vita is cool, and I love Indies as much as everyone else, but I was really wowed by seeing Amnesia on a portable.
Are there any other unsung 3D games on the system that may similarly wow me? I already did BOTW on Wii U and Odyssey on my OG switch, and I own Smash already. I'm looking for recs that aren't just the obvious Indies I've already played on PC.
I have three OG switch systems, one new switch (the better battery life one), and a lite, and none of those five systems have had any drift at all.So I wanna get a switch lite but I'm super worried about he drifting thing. Never had drifting issues in any of my joycons though, so I kinda got paranoid over this because of what I've been seing on youtube, reddit and gamefaqs.
Any of you here have experienced the drift on a lite?
Your saves are on your console. You’ll have to redownload all your games if you get a new SD Card. No transferring.Which of these two SD cards should i get as my 128GB is nearly full
Is the extra 112gig worth the price?
Also how hard is it to transfer your games from your old SD Card to your new one? Will it fuck up my saves?
No you don't. If you're going to be using the new SD card on the same console, you can simply use a PC (not a Mac} to copy contents of the old card to the new one and insert the new card into the Switch.
Im being asked the same( friends not family) they are angling for Marvel UA.I have a Switch and I am looking at getting a Switch Lite for my Wife and Daughter, what are some good co-op games that we would would be able to play across the two systems? I have Minecraft and Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing is definitely on my radar for March but what else is there?
I have a couple RavPower banks, 20100mAh and 26800mAh, and both work flawlessly with my Switch(es). There's a Nintendo branded one which is basically the same as my 20100. [LINK]. Anker makes good options as well.
Yes and yes.With Pokemon coming out soon I'm thinking of getting Nintendo Switch Online. I have a couple of questions about the family plan, if anyone can answer them.
1) Is it region free? Like if I buy it on a EU nintendo account can I add a NA or JP nintendo account to the family?
2) Can I add users on different consoles?
Depends what sorts of games you like mate? And do you only want co op games with your daughter etc? Personally I loved mario rabbids - and Luigis mansion is great co op wise.Looking at picking up one of these for my 5 year daughter and me. Haven’t had a Nintendo since N64 and currently have an XOX.
What games do you recommend besides Mario Kart and Odyssey?
Is the Pro controller worth it for adults? I’m used to using my Xbox Elite.
What size SD card? I haven’t decided if we use physical or digital though I imagine there’s better prices on physical games? Is there a good resale market?
I know last question is personal preferred but red/blue or all gray system? I feel like gray is bland and boring but then again the bright red/blue could be distracting when playing in handheld mode?
Any other advice in advance or new owner?
