But they sell out in 20 min or less (at least it was that long for me). I was lucky and was awake at 3am (PST) for the pre-order sale and bought mine. I bought from SHIP & SOLD BY AMAZON, not a 3rd party, bc there’s been problems and reports of them switching out the battery for older versions. And paying $350+ ain’t worth it no matter how desperate you are. No this is NOT limited, it’s SPECIAL edition. Meaning there will be restocks in the future! If your lucky like me, my purchase was pre-ordered & expected to come next month but it got changed to this week? A welcomed surprise nonetheless. This means there’s a chance for everyone to get their pre-ordered switch earlier than expected! Good luck on getting your switch!",

With the onboard memory you will be able to download the updates (Wolfenstein 2 had upwards of a 13 gig update..\rEven Spyro requires a download to play the games not included on cartridge .) If you stick to physical only games and are vigilant with managing your data- ie deleting update data etc when done playing you can theoretically avoid buying a memory card. However there are so many good eshop games and a 64 gig card is like $10 and that should suffice for an individual who mostly buys physical games but still wants to download every once in awhile.",
