Nintendo Switch Discussion

Just got a switch with smash bros and well happy with it, got fortnite downloading now as it’s free

Regarding the “Pro controller” is it compatible with most games ( obviously not the kinetic style ones)?

Thanks

Yep it’s compatible with most if not all if it’s a game that requires the full motion then it will require the joy con controllers otherwise feel free to use the Pro controller as normal and syncing it up hold down the button at the top rather than pressing it as it will just loop.

OK thanks dude
Let’s say you buy a game from the shops with the physical card it comes with, they aren’t stored on the internal memory at all see they?
Because when I took smash bros out it was still listed in the home section.but was obviously unable to play

Also will any micro sd card do the trick to expand the memory?

It installs a bit of the data for quicker load times but it will still require the cartridge to play the game if you bought a physical copy it’s only the digital games that fully install on the console.

Congrats on getting a Switch!

Splatoon works so much better with a Pro Controller imo! :slight_smile:

Any micro sd will do, right?

Either a 32 or a 64 I’m undecided

Yep any will do! I got a 128gb Sandisk so it’s future proof.

Would probably opt for a 128gb as the basic size any smaller you’ll notice it will fill up relatively fast if you’re going to download games as well and saving videos/photos from the games.

Just bear in mind the various read speeds of different specs of SD cards.

Nintendo reccomend a read spead of about 100mb/s, or “UHS-I” spec, I think.

Sandisk Ultra and above meet that spec, with Sandisk Extreme being the faster range (U3 spec) but overkill for a switch - but just make sure it’s says either “C10” or “U1” on the card, and read speeds of at least 100mb/s

This is interesting. I thought memory cards went by classes, i.e. the number in the top corner?

When did this for out?

They broadly do, I think, aside from specs relating to capacity (<4gb, 4-32gb, >32gb, which is broadly irrelevant nowadays).

Class 10 and U1 should in theory offer the same speeds (from what I have read, but I’m not sure what the difference is)

But the U1 Spec offers speeds between 50 - 100 MB/s, while U3 is 156-312.

So it’s worth a check before buying either way!

Edit: and you’ve also got video speed classes which add an extra logo and layer of confusion… Not needed for a Switch of course, but still.

Handy table with some references:

Gonna save some money and get the pro controller
The original one is pretty cool though as it has hot coral

Yeah they are, I got the fake Chinese ones off eBay that resembles a pro controller and its actually pretty decent for the £15 I paid for it. Only game it doesn’t work on is Lets Go Pikachu/Eevee.

Yep been playing it for a while now since N64 days and so forth if you want to get to grips with it try the bots on minimum of 3-5 then go up gradually from there I think you’ll like world of light it’s quite long but you get to try out different fighters as you progress :slight_smile:
