    Wanting to prepare for the Switch if I can find a good deal, assuming the Switch does use microSD. If it does, I could use one for my n3DS for the time being, as I currently have a 32GB card in it.

    I agree with the others. Prices of technology always goes down, so wait until you need it, then buy it.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    If you can get it cheap, sure. Bigger SD cards have a lag after 64gb; it's not unbearable, but noticeable. Make sure it's not a knock-off.

    I'd imagine the Switch will natively support exFat, so there shouldn't be any lag

    Wait until you get the Switch in your hands. It may support full-sized SD (so you can save a few bucks), and prices will go down a little. If you can, try to wait as long as possible or budget for an interim card so you can wait for the really high capacity cards to get cheap.

    DSi was region lock and we didn't expect it to happen.
    Wait for the inevitable proprietary memory card and chargers sold separately from Nintendo.
    It will be an amazing console with those 2 additional features.
