    What SD cards are you folks planning to get? Do think it'll be worth going SDXC?
    I bought this one the other day:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01EAKAUUK/

    You can get the same capacity for slightly less if you shop around, but it seems to have the best read speed for the price point, to get much faster seems to need about a 50% price bump.

    It's now a couple of quid cheaper than what I "paid" but I used that 10 off 50 spend code that Amazon had.

    I can't find a tablet case that suits it
    I bought the official one, that also comes with a screen protector.

    @YenRug Cheers for the link. I'll probably hold off until April/May anyway, as i'm not going to obliterate that storage too quickly. I didn't have to look for additional Wii U storage for about a year.

    No, I don't think Indian oil massage holds much relevance to this discussion

    Wait, they're charging for the effing straps? Oh boy.
    It's a pretty clever idea having a strap attached to your tablet though.

    Number of people you see on the train with smashed ipad screens is hilarious

    I took advantage of the Amazon deal on Friday and got breath of the wild for a more palatable 40 on switch.

    My wife ordered Zelda on Wii U and the charge grip for 57 total.

    I also ordered 2 pro controllers from TGC. They seem to be the cheapest and also they were the only site that allowed me to order two.

    Just getting the switch and the extra set of Joy-cons from ShopTo.

    Any links/recommendations for cases and screen protectors?

    Quick question as I'm currently at work so can't check - does anyone know if I can use a Google Nexus 6P USB-C charger to charge the Switch? I'm flying later this week and wondering if I'll need to buy another charger...

    Thank you!

    Reduced today. Picked it up with USB 3.0 to C lead for under 30. Some bloke on the thread the other day recommended it for a good few hours extra charge.

    It seems rather odd that Amazon doesn't seem to have any cases in stock. I even ventured into a Game shop (shudder), and they didn't have any.

    I'm hoping my Argos has some official cases in stock. I know they come with a screen protector. One that would have been tested by Nintendo themselves, rather than simply being endorsed (like Hori).

    I have this case ordered:

    http://www.shopto.net/nintendo/switch/SWAC38-official-nintendo-switch-zelda-travel-case-grey

    but I'm a bit gutted it's not coming out 'til the end of March. Had a craving for lunch time Zelda today but without a case I probably won't be taking my Switch out of the living room. Might head over to Game and see how those hard Gioteck cases look.

    I've just ordered this one today: Waterfield Switch Case. These made a 3DS that a lot of people stand by. This case hold the console, 5 games, and a USB charging cable. It is a bit expensive, but seems pretty high quality.

    They also have a bigger case that will hold the dock, and pro controller(s). Unfortunately, both cases are sold out until early April.

    I bought the licenced Mario case, I have to say it's pretty great.

    Was $30 (Australian), about 15 pounds.
    The design is lovely, it packs pretty decent protection, and also includes joycon covers, earphones with a Mario M, a screen protector, and two analogue stick protectors for the joycons.

    I wish there was a ubs3 to hdmi cable for when you're over at friends.

    I got my official case from argos. If you check the website it tells you if they have it in stock at the store you choose.

    Screen Protectors: essential accessory or bandaid for the jammy fingered, unwashed hordes?

    I'm debating if I need to apply mine.

    @el_pollo_diablo I think with all this talk of scratching you may as well. I've done mine and I don't notice it.

    Essential, it's a plastic screen so it will scratch.

    I'm trying to get hold of the blue tunic case. Apparently exclusive to game in the uk 😞. I was informed in store that these weren't available at launch and had been delayed.
    Has anyone found / got one of these?

    Just picked up the premium Giotek case with the double pouch. It seems OK. It won't take a particularly hard knock, though, so I might get something better in future. It'll do for now, though

    Yeah, I got the A4T (or something similar to that) case for 11. It seems a bit deep, but I'll stick a lens cloth or something on top to fill the space. I have a big soft bag, so really it's to protect the screen, which it will do.

    @Rusty_M how generous is the space in the top pouch? Basically was wondering if you could squeeze the Joy-Con grip in there without worrying about it applying pressure to the Switch below. Out of stock in my local Game so been unable to check.

    @DanoFNG I'll confirm when I get home but it looks like it'd be a comfortable fit
