    I was reading around on various forums,other people had your same thoughts about it, and they also found it works pretty well! It's absolutely a good solution plug in a smaller adapter to have a good capability and store many games. Thanks for your sharing and advices. Well done !

    The point is installing games. Copy .nsp from your computer to a flash drive then connect it to Switch - and you can install all the games you downloaded. Transfer over wifi will take forever, this is the fastest and most convenient way to install games.

    Having a few terabyte hard drive will hold all the XCI and nsp as your game archive for backup, but not all HDD will work - USB flash drive however will work 100%.

    Even with a 500GB SDcard you can't carry all the Switch games with you. With a hard drive you can carry every games with you in the bag, you can swap them easily.

    Are we supposed to be surprised? Because people were shouting this everywhere that it works.

    I did this last year when I went on a cruise - so no PC to upload games etc. I filled a 4TB WD Elements portable USB HDD with files and used that to load different games to try out while I was on holiday.
