Let’s face it, the Nintendo Switch’s 32GB of storage just isn’t enough. For starters, about 6 GB of it is taken up by the operating system itself; for another, today’s games are getting more complex, larger, and data-hungry. With only about 26GB of space, running out of game storage can make the console virtually unusable. But we, and the folks at SanDisk, have found a solution to your storage problems.
Enter the top rated and super popular SanDisk microSDXC Card for Nintendo Switch (128GB) — it retails for $24, down from $35. That’s a 32 percent savings! Even more impressive than that? More than 122,900 reviewers have given it a five-star rating. No joke!
This is not your standard memory card. It can hold up to 128GB (that’s a lot) of game downloads – both large and small. This is four times the storage space of the Nintendo Switch itself. And best of all? This one SanDisk Ultra MicroSDXC Memory Card is blazingly fast with transfer speeds of over 100MB per second. Translation: You can play big, sprawling video games stored on it with virtually no lag or latency.
“All of our Nintendo Switch games are digital because we thought it was safer to use digitally, so we didn’t have to worry about cards getting damaged. But we quickly learned how quickly the console runs out of storage space.” , shared a SanDisk fan. “If you store Mario Kart and a few other popular games, you’ll soon run out of space… We finally decided to buy this memory card. I’m so glad we did! It was much smaller than I realized us that it would be and we keep it in the console 24/7 now we can play all our games whenever we want i wish the switch came with more internal storage but this is the next best thing .”
Meanwhile, you can also save all your game screenshots and video recordings in just one place. Handy!
