    Possible?

    Can you even save a game straight to microSD at point of purchase?

    Games are always downloaded to microSD as long as you have one inserted and it isn't full. At the moment there's no way to copy a game from NAND to SD besides deleting it and redownload from eShop.

    The title was misleading, but yeah it seem s to be this way. I'm a little dissapointed in this, and I just got a 128GB MicroSD card and want to transfer my existing games to it. Oh well.

    The internal NAND is faster. It's a shame Nintendo doesn't offer any sort of data management, I would keep the games that I play the most there if possible.
