    Damn you know youre stuff ... I would guess atm I have 80 gigs of games & the rest is movies .. 256 gigs is plenty of films & they upload more weekly .. I suppose I like the 3D movies & I travel alot .. & I'm a greedy hoarding fool .. If it's free..

    also fair warning the larger the card the longer system boot times tend to be

    A 512 gb sd card goes for like 80 something dollars right now, while 1 TB is $450. Makes sense.

    I think I could fill up a Switch with 2tb I think ... did the WIIU & Xbox 360 with 1tb hard drives the Ps3 with a 2tb .. But the New 3ds just doesn't have the stuff needed for such a massive SD card lool .. I would be watching 3D films until my eyes explode .. I'm getting a Switch for Xmas.. & I'm grabbing what ever the biggest SD card is no matter the price ( using my Xmas bonus to treat myself ) I hope a 2tb exsist then ..

    I could live with that as long as it loads

    The one I'm looking at is $44 San disk Ultra .. Just like all my others in my handheld consoles... I could live with that . That's all my games & I'm hoping about 100 3D films I guess

    nitpicks
    He asked that you could use. You cannot currently use a 2tb micro sd.
    either way a 256gb or 400gb are probably better options than 1tb

    this is a 400gb for a decent price. the next jump is basically $50 for 120gb extra on one card

    Passing the video files through Handbrake to reduce the resolution to match that which is visible on the 3DS will like reduce the size of your videos significantly.
