Digital cheaper, people change their console country so can buy at cheap prices like Mexico or South Africa.
No need to swap cartridge but need a big SD card.

Physical can sell off.
Change game very mafan.
digital not always cheaper, in fact I think for us physical is cheaper if we buy from Shopee/Lazada plus discount count. The downside is swap cartridge which can be quite troublesome.

Depends on what genre you like to play but some of the big name titles are worth considering like Zelda, Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart, Mario Tennis etc.

Don't think so, most people are waiting for Netflix to be on the switch but so far no confirmation.

hmm just a quick check, does the eShop still
- require you to "give up" the existing funds in your eShop wallet before you change region?
- require a US Credit Card for the US eShop?

My advise. Dont change region. Create a new account.
You can use the same email. If you are using gmail, just use email+MEX@gmail.com for mexico account for example. The purchases will be stuck in the account but you can use any account on your switch to play. You can also maintain your eshop credit so if that region, likely US, has cheaper games, you can buy it there.

AFAIK, canada mexico can all use any credit card. US may not. But you can buy top up card for credit, and top up cards at shopee and other places can get it for cheaper with promo codes etc.

Switch actually has Bluetooth audio but... OVER USB. it was activated last year.
https://www.polygon.com/2017/10/19/1...headset-update

but means u need a USB dongle. Why no direct bluetooth audio? so that Nintendo can sell their own USB audio dongle or license it out to 3rd party hardware vendors in the near future and make more money.

edit: tbf, all it takes is Nintendo to just deny other non-licenses 3rd parties from using their bluetooth audio and force everyone to use their own or from their licensed partners.

would nintendo be that evil? it has happened before (Wiimote Plus is a nice example, Guitar Hero accessory for the DS is another nice example).
