i have it sealed at home. i dont think its a bad price long term. how soon would 400gb cards drop under $50? i would think maaaybe next year. now if i dont end up not putting anything else on my card from here until then it will be stupid. im gonna sit on this a little bit before i open it.

i have the shield tv with no additional storage. i used to have some roms and iso on a usb drive that over heated and stopped working. im thinking i might move the 128gb card with a usb adapter to it. im gonna have sandisk replace the usb drive but i dont want to risk using the same type of drive on the shield tv. it was a recommended model for it but already burned me once so eh.

I guess youre right. i figured breath of the wild and odyssey had to be much bigger than 2k19 or la noire. nope. zelda is 13 gb and odyssey like 6??

>>got zelda...then im like would i need the pro controller???

i had to try this out. used it for mario kart and i gotta say i enjoyed it more. i have smash still sealed. still torn on returning it. waiting on zelda still. im thinking it would be good for 2k19 too. im pretty sure im keeping it, dont know if i have a choice as i already opened it lol.

i have it connected to the 5ghz and i have the lan adapter. ive been using it with lan but i had to disconnect it to connect something else a couple of weeks ago. i think the switch or my router didnt like that because i remember mk8 downloading fairly quick. its much smaller but the speed was pretty quick. i have my router like 4 ft from the switch. its on a table on the other side of the tv. might be better to have the switch on the same side of the tv as the router. definitely wouldnt hurt.
