Nintendo Switch |OT| Switch It Up



Staff member

Here's the official thread for the popular Nintendo Switch system! It's very unique in that it can be played in 3 different ways - handheld mode, docked (TV) mode, and tabletop mode. Plus you can play with joy-cons or even grab a pro controller. It features lots of great games that you can't get anywhere else! As of October 8, 2021 there's a new OLED model that has several new features. For those who want a smaller, more affordable Switch and don't care about hooking it up to a TV, the Switch Lite has you covered. If you'd like to increase the storage of your Switch, you can do so easily by adding a microSDHC or microSDXC card up to 2TB.
