The Nintendo Switch uses SD cards for additional storage if you need more than the included 32 GB on the console for games and downloads.
And SD cards are pretty cheap these days. Unless it’s the official Switch-branded versions sold by HORI.
While a regular 32 GB micro SD card costs $12 on Amazon, HORI sells their 32 GB Switch-branded 32 GB card for a whopping 3800 Yen. That’s $33.
Which is almost three times as expensive as a regular 32 GB card from SanDisk. Samsung sells one for just 10 bucks.
And the expensive HORI SD cards aren’t any faster than the regular, cheaper versions from SanDisk and Samsung.
The Switch includes 32 GB of on-board storage and supports micro SD cards up to 2 TB.
