Hi guys, just got my switch gen 2. Where's the best place to get games cheap? From what I see sometimes eShop is cheaper, sometimes buying a physical copy is cheaper?

Btw just bought Mario kart 8 from US eShop for a jaw dropping $59.90 usd :( just needed a game fast to play with my kid for today.

Welcome to the family :giggle:

For physical, you can try search through online platform (eg shopee) and compare different listing. Use credit card/voucher/points to get best possible price ;)

For eShop prices, can use below links for reference:

Amazon.sg sometimes got deals on older games. Maybe you could check over there.

Oh yes, to buy games from other regions I just need to switch region on both Nintendo and switch accounts right? No need to create additional accounts?

No need, just login to your Nintendo account and change region. Not all countries will accept our credit card though. If that happens you can try paying by paypal.

Actually yeah I found that out. But logging in to change region each time seems more troublesome than using individual account for each region? More so when for Gmail can just use a modifier. Abc+usa@gmail for us region, abc+hk@gmail for hk region, for example.

Your game ownership will be all over the place if you use 1 account per region. 1 thing to note though is that if you have credit in 1 region, it cannot be used when switched to another region. Might even get forfeited.

Nope but I understand you can get banned for it. Which makes your switch no difference from a China Tencent switch.
