I ordered from Caseology. They also offered free gift of screen protector, joycon silicone cover, analog stick cover and USB C cable.

Generally speaking, Qoo10 sells Korea export set cheaper than local set for nintendo switch console and games. Anyone got any idea if this translate to cheaper prices if I buy nintendo switch games in a local store in Korea as compared to buying export from Qoo10 / from a local store in SG?

Guys, any recommendations for micro sd card for Switch if I wish to increase from my current 128GB?

Durability of card/data vs price or value

Thanks!

Anyone like me getting the Switch Lite even though got the new 'revised' Switch? Am getting the Lite due to the fact I only play handheld, my current switch has never been dock and the other accessories that came with it I never took it out the box.

Why not just carry on using your current Switch as merely a handheld then?

Unless you have some spare cash lying around waiting to be spent

Somehow I am not convinced that the Switch Lite cannot output to TV. I know they say it cannot be docked, meaning it cannot slot into the original Switch dock. That's a given since the physical dimensions are different. But you don't have to slot into the Switch dock to connect to TV. You can use an extension USB-C cable (male to female) to make the port available outside the dock. You can use a third party dock (some lets you use the original dock parts so it won't fry the Switch).

I don't see why Nintendo will change the Switch Lite's components to cripple video output via existing USB-C port (that exists on both original Switch and Lite). Waiting for people to actually get their hands on the Lite (not just playing it in a trade show as set up by Nintendo) to test it out. If it's crippled via firmware, when the chips are the same, then perhaps someone will hack the firmware, or Nintendo will enable it later (of cos, you may want to use a Pro controller or Joy-cons when the Lite is outputting to TV). I don't see many people wanting to switch to the Lite without TV output (though I understand the Lite is probably targeted at 3DS users).

Is there any actual confirmation from Nintendo specifically talking about "output to TV" rather than "dock", or from press media who actually tried it?
