so are they like, compatible with switch only or ??
What's the price gonna be?
1 dollar per gigabyte?
Honestly, the price might only be like $2-$3 more than typical, because the goal is to actually sell these, after all. Slightly different printing on the mSD and packaging shouldn't affect price much. Especially since you never see your mSD when it's inside Switch.
You would think that. However, what's stopping Nintendo from charging a hefty premium just for having the Switch logo printed on the microsd cards? SanDisk has to pay the licensing fee somehow.
Nothing stops them from doing that as long as they don't care about turning a profit from these on the sales end. I'm not so sure they don't, though.
Lol no i'd rather buy original ones
They'll make money. Nintendo will pull a Nintendo and keep supply artificially low. Then when an unsuspecting parent waltzes into Gamestop to buy his kid a Switch, he'll pick up an overpriced microsd card because he'll see Mario printed on the label. Count on it.
Lol, they can't exactly starve people out for mSDs. That'd be 100% pointless.
Same bs they did with the wii. Run of the mill sd card + Nintendo's name on it = overpriced vanilla sd card.
And morons will still buy it. Lolololol
You'd be surprised at the stupidity of some people. Like @V0ltr0n said, Nintendo pulled the same move on Wii SD cards, and same thing for the DSi SD cards. People never learn.
I smell price gouging. Didn't this already happen?? At least iirc, Nintendo had already started selling "official" licensed SD cards for the switch. Pretty sure they had a hefty price at that. I want to see a ligit TB SD carseat reasonable prices. say around 60 to 100 is a good ballpark then.
I've always used SanDisk SD's. They've always been great; although, what exactly is the point of just having a Switch Logo stamped on an SD package? Oh waaaaaiiiit.... it's for marketing.
See this Amazon Japan listing for Hori branded cards here https://tinyurl.com/ycsrpcep. Notice the price gouging? FYI $1~110 yen. SanDisk will probably follow suit and charge double the market rate for their Nintendo branded cards.
They were overpriced, but I don't think Wii SD cards were artificially scarce, I saw them everywhere. To be scarce there would have to be demand, lol. Sure, a few uninformed parents might bite at the checkout line, but that's a very small audience to target.
I rember Sony did this for the psp, their psp memory sticks were like $30 - $40 I got mine (tho it was a black Friday sale) for $8.
Noob-proof sd cards.
Well, I can see it being easier for parents/guardians who know nothing about the systems. Probably why they moved the Nintendo Switch/n2DS XL to the micro sd card format as well.
I rather buy a large capability card and then forget about it. Or maybe put the Nintendo branding on the card itself...
don't have an sd card yet? better get one...not these ones though. looks like they are going to be doing what steam does make you update FUGE updates before you can play.
Well there goes my wallet...
