    There’s no gyroscope either so the Pokémon let’s go games can’t be played

      5:00 Nintendo just announced a hardware revision of the standard dockable Nintendo switch using the same more efficient chipset as the lite. I think apart from marketing, they removed the necessary data connections from the USB C port as they are not needed in the switch lite. In addition to the new chipset fixing some exploitable vulnerabilities, they probably also removed the data connections to combat hacking and hindering the progress of discovering new vulnerabilities.

          I am sure that a thirst party development team would make a product that will allow the switch mini to be played on a television 0/

              It exists to make more money and make a new switch lite. It's basically a 3ds. Saved you 10 minutes of not watching the video

                *cries in third world prices* the normal switch in my country is about $500++ , if the switch lite is half of that price at comfortable 300 margin, i would buy it, in my country a console isnt viable for me, and since i main a pc, dont really care about docking. and dont really care about fps in a damn handheld *laughsinPCMR*

                          I have a PS4 for my home gaming looking forward to the switch lite. Most games I want are playable so I’m sold as a non original switch owner. Seems like the negative response is from original switch owners.

                              I honestly think this is not a good idea, unless Nintendo plans to release a virtual console for all previous gen Nintendo consoles. If this is the case, it's brilliant. Nintendo makes a portable only "switch" (I would have chosen a different name, but I'm not on the marketing team either.) instead of developing some "new," alternate, exclusively handheld device. Nintendo can reach this audience using somewhat the same device.. Two birds, one stone. Get to work on that virtual console, Nintendo.

                              I don't get why it couldn't dock. The hardware is there, isn't it? It's still a USB-C port. Are they really saving money by taking out that functionality?

                                I'm going to laugh my ass off for years if hackers manage to hack the Lite and get it to have docking functionality.
                                Like I'll seriously laugh forever.

                              I have been hesitant to buy a switch because I can't justify spending that much on a kit that I wouldn't play that much. However this is a console that I will probably buy once it comes out. I don't give a damn about the ability to dock nor remove the joycons. This will get me into the Nintendo market again

                                It's not likely for Bob to see this.
                                Bob, do you think the new chipset, or the combination of the new Switch Lite not having a dock, Might change the issues we've had with USB C Power Delivery? I would think a new switch that would (theoretically) rely on existing USB C chargers as it's main charging source might see fit for Nintendo to address the issues regarding charging the hardware having a chance of damaging the device.

                                        The Last Dragon so does that mean every other joycon will get the redesign? i just got my joycon back from nintendo after sending it in for repair, but it looks like they just replaced the joycon

I actually prefer portable game systems. I have a RetroFlag Gpi Case and an LCL GameBoy Pi 3B which are two amazing portable emulation game consoles. So yeah, I like the Switch Lite,

                                                          I love my current Switch. Plus I bought this $20 D-pad with a Pikachu theme. The joycon is for handheld only but I love it. Then I switch to the regular joycons whenever I want or use my pro controller. Playing in dock mode, the games look amazing. Other than that, I'm not mad at Switch Lite. In fact I'm happy there's more options for people to choose from. I think the Switch Lite is great for children, for parents who want to save $100 for buying a new game of the kid's choice. That, or there are people who just love playing in handheld mode.

A home console version of the switch with a built in Ethernet port could bring in people who don't want to use their switch portably. I'd say bundle it with a pro controller, but for some god forsaken reason Super Mario Party refuses to allow you to use anything but a half a joy con to play with.
