Anyone getting it? I am. I've always played the games in handheld mode. I'm tight on money atm so I probably won't play as much. I'm looking forward to that Pokemon game, I guess.

I like the colors. But knowing that there will be a Pro version coming down the pipeline keeps me from purchasing any current iteration of the Switch. I prefer the option of being able to play my games on the go and on a huge tv.

the $200 price tag is a little steep for me. I believe I purchased my old switch with a game for $220 during a holiday sell. I also read that you cant control brightness settings. Unless that is a misstranslation.


This version of the switch would sell like hot cakes if they released a Pokemon Sword/ Shield Bundle.

While I understand they are going for a strictly handheld version of the device would it have killed them to have Mini HDMI out port? I believe the PSP let you do something like this.

It was stated in the video that you can use joycons with this device. So why not plug in a hdmi cord, put it on your table and play directly from your tv using joy cons?

They have a Pokemon limited edition version. But, no games with it. At least they're adding the charger plug in for it. Lol

Yeah, being able to play in direct sunlight is big for me if I my parents and I ever go on roadtrips. That includes reading the kindle in bright sunlight too.

My hands are small so I'm hoping they grip around the console better without bad cramps. I'm also hoping gamestop will have a demo.

I agree.

That was my issue with the PS Vita. It will be interesting to see comparisons of both. The more I see this version of the switch the more I actually like it. I wont be around for its initial launch but I am planning to travel after my PC service. I think I might pick a version of this later on.

Another issue is Nintendo is horrible when it comes to online systems and gaming accounts. If one stays strictly digital on this device will they be able to access their games if they buy a normal or pro version later on? Can they play both and do cross play/ cross saves?

Hello Mario? HELLLOOOOOOOOO?

Is there? Or is that just a big rumor that goes around since all the other consoles eventually have a similar thing? (PS4 Pro and XB1X)

Same, thus I won't be getting it but I'm glad some people have the option.

That really bites about the brightness. I feel like losing $50 isn't worth it to not be able to plug into the TV, have hard-wired Joycons, no HD Rumble, etc.

I feel like this couldn't play Super Mario Party unless you had other controllers to connect to the switch.

After watching the little video today when I went to pick up my Switch to put in its case it ended up feeling...heavy to me, lol.

Haha, yeah their features kind of suck. The new Rewind feature feels like cheating to me, but in a way I kinda like it.

Sorry I'm on mobile. My dog doesn't like it when I'm in the basement so I can't be on my PC.:/ I want to get rid of my bookcase and chair for a desk. Big mistake there.

Not to put SOH off from his plan, as there will probably eventually be some kind of sequel to the Switch that'll almost assuredly keep the mobile/home hybrid design as that's the direction Nintendo have been on ever since the WiiU, but otherwise I've not seen any credible rumours of a "Switch Pro". There were a few very very loose rumours months back, but nothing since. Nintendo do sometimes do a "better" version of their handheld consoles, so they may well do the same with Switch but it feels unlikely as the Switch feells ike it's in a sweet spot for performance and the target audience with this console isn't those who want the best of the best.

The cheaper/smaller Switch has had rumours and actual leaks (like the officially licenced case that accdientally got put up for sale early) for quite some time so it was always much more credible of a rumour.

Not sure on the pricing as I can't find an official source for UK pricing but if the difference is similar in the UK then seems like it wouldn't be worth going for one (not that it matters to me, I already have my Switch).

Feature differences:
Handheld Mode Only (No TV, or Tabletop Modes)
Only supports games that are playable in Handheld Mode
No HD Rumble or IR Motion Camera (can't say I would care about that anyway)
5.5inch Screen (vs 6.2 on Switch)

Feels like they could've knocked more off the US price for what they took out of it.

I disagree. I do believe we will have a "Home Only Switch" that will be on par with the Xbox one X (holy crap what a crappy name) and or the PS4 Pro. It will be catered to a very Niche crowd.

I very much doubt this. Nintendo have never done anything like that before and they've not really shown a change in opinion on that stance.

33% more battery life with a 18% smaller battery, and it's roughly 20% smaller than the switch overall. I wish they trimmed the bezels, cause they could have made the screen 6 inches if they did. It's confirmed to be using a new processor also. Likely from 20nm to 16nm/12nm now, but a die shrink version of the TX1 from the original Switch

It's important to note also that hd rumble and the ir camera(pretty much useless anyway) isn't on the switch lite. I do wonder if it has normal rumble. Hmm

My biggest wonder is if it will be able to play in OG docked specs for better performance. Because if it doesn't, I see no reason to buy this if you already own the OG switch. Would be a huge disappointment if you can't. Not expecting it though.

And yeah there are credible sources (Wall Street journal, Nikkei, Eurogamer) that claim they have insider information mentioning that there is a switch "pro" on the way. Possibly this year. WSJ wrote an article today mentioning the switch pro and that it's still coming, but won't be as powerful as xbone x or PS4 pro (go figure). I rest hope Switch Pro is as powerful as xbone base at least.
