Despite all the new gimmicks, gamers tend to always go back to the old fashioned handheld style.

I played with the switch lite but I conviniently wasn't able to take any videos or pictures too! What a coincidence!

They’re making a switch pro just like they’ve been trying to cover up the switch light what they are doing the same thing with the switch pro

The switch lite isn’t for people who already have a switch. Like how the 2ds wasn’t for people who already had a 3ds.

The only reason the switch can output at 1080p on the tv is because the dock overclocks the processor, if it wasn't for that the switch would not be doing 1080p, and most games aren't even 1080p on switch anyway lol

As someone who doesn't really play video games, but understands pretty well what you SHOULD get for your money, based on the costs of various components, I really feel like the Switch is more of a $200.00 "thing" and this Switch Lite is more of a $120.00 "thing". Both really pretty overpriced to me.

People be crying over labo, but did you really care about it, when it was out for the original Switch? No, of course not. The fact that people are starting to use labo incompatibility as an argument over the Switch Lite is stupid. You didn't care about it when labo released, now all of a sudden you care about it. I can see people making a counter argument over the Switch Lite being for kids and the lack of labo support is bad because "LAbo Iz 4 kidz." I HAVEN'T seen a single kid use labo, Only grown ass adults.

The whole text thing is just flat out ridiculous, the fact that people are worried about this, remember a majority of handheld consoles had tiny screens. The only screen that was bigger was the original switch. No I'm not talking about phone screens, only portables, so don't bring that shit up.

I was waiting for something more "mini" it's still too big for be called portable, lots of bezels around the screen.

The new processor is actually more powerful, they just aren't overclocking it.

Don't hijack the rainbow as a symbol for your agenda.

Were you explicitly told its a weaker cpu? That seems improbable considering it would be more expensive to reproduce modified old tech. I find it highly unlikely that its a "weaker" chip but it could be artificially under clocked.

I already have a switch and I plan on buying the lite.

Y tf would u need a kickstand when it's all handheld device and the joy cons dont come off.

Looks great. But I have the original one so I stick with it.

But still the same old Switch and it doesn’t have 8k, stream, save clips, but like 30 seconds, and Nintendo haven’t announced their new console yet

It's not a switch any more as it can't 'switch'

Now announcing THE NINTENDO LITE
....

Or the new nintedno 2ds XL lite

1 day ago

I loved the Wii U but it wasn’t portable but the 3ds xl was portable and I loved it so I’ll probably love the switch lite.

It literally a smaller switch

1 day ago

I would like an upgrade to my 3ds so it's perfect for me especially with the new Animal Crossing coming.

1 day ago

Will it run handheld game just as well as the normal switch or is the original switch more powerful ? Also what happens if theres joycon drifting on the switch lite ?

1 day ago

The switch lite should run games pretty close to the same performance as the original switch

well you can have the same account on 2 systems only caveat is that your primary system can play games offline your secondary will need to connect to Wi-Fi before launching a game so the solution is make the Lite the primary and the docked the secondary because it's in your house connected to Wi-Fi anyways.
