      Biggest problem taht I would be afraid to buy this system is joycon tumb stick drifting problem. In last 2 years from day one I had to change true 5 pairs of controllers. Now I just buy replacement tumb sticks online. And yes kids used switch a lot. But 10 controllers in 2 years? So if there is no clarity about diferent tumb stick on switch light I would avoid it by any cost.

          I'm kinda happy developers have to try harder to make it run better on the lite. I'm still upset at how low rez the crash games are I know damn well switch can do better.

                I love it, but I am afraid that the to Nintendo’s DRM policies will limit the use of this console as a secondary device for many people. The compatibility issues (gyroscope etc.) could make this a new Playstation TV with many games unplayable for often unknown or unclear reasons.

                  It looks more like the WiiU than ever. Funny, the WiiU is a 100times better.

                    No HDMI = NO SALE. Assholes. SO CLOSE to being a 3DS with HDMI and they fuck it up.

                        Thanks for helping me make a decision between the OG Switch and the Switch Lite.

                        how much do the games cost for this iteration? is the new iteration backward compatible with prev iteration games? is it only going to pay specific iteration designed games?

                          It plays the same games as the normal switch, its just a switch with no docking ability.

                        200 bucks for this? Gimtendo is profiting 100%. Where is the money going? Switch is all plastic with a very shit screen and a weak ass arm chip. This thing should be like 100 bucks tops. Hell, sub 100 dollar phones are more powerful than this shit. Sad. I refuse to buy this and I hope to god people are smart and just build a PC or buy a ps4!

                          My only issue is that it cannot work docked. Even if they made a separate doc just for it and you had to buy it separately I would prefer that to at least be an option. It's no fun playing smash bros with just the joycon.

                              I would have preferred a switch that is just a tv hook up at home for $200. They need to consider that.

                                The battery is actually 30% smaller than the original Switch. 3300mAh vs 4300mAh. Nintendo didn't want the "Lite" version to dramatically outlast the original console, so they cut the battery down.

                                      This is the company which cast video to and from the Wii U tablet. Could they made a comcast device of some form and added to the $199? I mean. The real Switch came out 2 years ago. Technology has improved un this 2 years and we still have a 32gb handheld and by the way. THIS IS A NINTENDO VITA. A VITA!!!! SONY, YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!!

                                        Personally, I feel like making the Switch undockable was one step too far. I'm just gonna keep saving for the base model.

                                                    Think God! I couldn't afford the Switch without robbing a bank! The fact that there are no joyconns makes it all the better!

                                                      what's the purpose of the name SWITCH if the SWITCHING to TV feature is removed?!

                                                        I guess youll be looking at the lineup announced for turbografix mini today especially since Snatcher will be on the PC Engine mini

                                                          Disappointed they didn't go with a clamshell design but I'm guessing it would have been too thick.

I'm more interested in whats next. Could you imagine a Switch Pro console (non handheld) that runs Gamecube discs, ds, 3ds, switch & next gen switch games over hdmi? I wish Nintendo would give us an all out option.

                                                                            Nintendo must be VERY clear/educational about Switch vs Lite.

                                                                            And I hope Nintendo gonna lower the price for Joy-Cons and charger for them. Maybe a 25% price cut?

                                                                            + better as a portable device

                                                                            - you don't save any money at all if you also gonna buy JoyCons
                                                                            - it's ONLY 30 min better battery life. 3-7 hrs is not good enough. You can accept it for a hybrid console...
                                                                            - it's not better battery life than 2DS/3DS, when talking about native games.

                                                                            Tips to extend the battery life...
                                                                            For 2DS/3DS: play older DS games but you sacrifice graphics and maybe some more stuff. You will more or less double the battery life!
                                                                            For Switch: I don't know...

                                                                            Would love to see a battery time test for Switch. Play different kind of games. How many hours and minutes can you play Zelda 1 on Switch Online when starting at fully charged battery that got 1-2 years of charging cycles? And we know that Switch is rated for 3 hrs for Zelda BotW and Lite will give an additional 1 hour.

                                                                            I gonna do the test if nobody else does it. But I cannot do that very soon. Maybe late 2019 or sometime in 2020.

                                                                                  If you already have a switch then you are not losing anything cuz you are not buying this for yourself. And if for some reason you are its because you're just collecting

                                                                                  • John Doe

                                                                                    I would actually expect games play even better portably on the lite then the regular switch given you can't hook it up to play docked. If it doesn't work the best in handheld mode then I would say the lite is a failure.

                                                                                    • Matt Chateauvert

                                                                                        I want the switch Pro to have Gorilla Glass and Metal body smooth with strong acrylic buttons and haptic feedback. Would also love for it to be 1440p on TV and 1080p handheld

                                                                                        • Pro Wrestling & Video Game Fan 486

                                                                                          It’s interesting because it’ll get newcomers to into the system at 100 bucks less, but as an owner of the Switch already I see no reason to get one although the Dpad would be nice and the Pokémon LE system would be a nice Collector item, I can’t justify spending $200 on a Dpad and having a legendary Pokémon on the back.

                                                                                          Fine with the Switch I have.
