    Here are my thoughts on your thoughts. First of all I think your thoughts are trully biased, since you don't like portable gaming which makes this video zero objective. The switch lite is not a 2ds like switch it is not even that ugly, actually I think the design is pretty adorable, even tho I agree with you on the colors. Second, to be honest the Original Switch isn't really that portable thus the result of the existence of this new switch lite version. Third, nintendo has always been crazy in love with their portable and they made this pretty clear with the so so portable feature of the original Switch and like it or not this is the direction they are taking, that's why they use adults on their ads, they don't mean this is a childish option but a lighter one, so I think portability will probably be their priority before docking. I can afford the original switch but honestly I've been holding on for a sturdier hardware and I don't really care to buy a TV just for gaming so I'm all for this new portable system.

      My bf is getting the switch (or switch pro we have patience) and I'm going to be getting the switch lite I'm more of a handheld/pc gamer and he's more of a console gamer but we will be also sharing our devices with each other so we can get the best of both worlds.

        I like the idea of saving $100 I’ve always been a strictly handheld casual gamer so... but then again the regular switch is about to get a huge battery boost. If they had applied that battery boost to the lite I’d be convinced to get it ASAP.

          Not sure if it’s just where i am but the switch lite is £200 and comes with £30 credit on the eshop

            the most important part of the switch for me is that i have the option to have it docked and when i have to go somewhere but im in the middle of a game, i can just pick it up and go. I cant imagine a world where the switch no longer has that option. i totally understand why you would make a portable only mode and a docked only mode but that's not for me and i don't think it should be for anyone. i feel like that option of the switch to take it or leave it docked allows the switch to match with your lifestyle. If you only play it docked most of the time then it works. and if you live in a place where your always moving the switch will work for that.This makes the system stand out to me. and i like this feature not just for me but for every single other person that likes Nintendo. the switch can be enjoyed by even more walks of life than ever thought possible. It is such a dramatic change and all it has done is give so much good. It hurts to think they would be getting rid of that. the switch is so customize-able it feels every switch is different and unique just like the human race. everything from the joycon colors to night mode and even how you hold your controllers. the switch can be like you. even though i don't play it much (at least til animal crossing comes out)it is for these reasons the switch holds a special place in my heart. I genuinely believe this is a bad turn. sure it can be a great option for certain demographics i don't think this is going to be beneficial in the long run. but it is Nintendo's decision and i will still stick by it, thanks for hearing me out <3

                Well if you are marketing to children, you want them to think it is cool, so you would show the older and cooler kids.

                    Nintendo is smart the DS family of systems sold 24 million units in Japan alone they are betting the Lite will sell well too in Japan a pro would never sell well there and it won't sell well in the US either with this gen over it wouldn't stand a chance against the PS5 or Xbox Two it is a winning move for Nintendo.

                      No point in advertising to kids since they will always want what the adults/teenagers have. The colors and low price will attract children. I really want one as a second switch.

                        Perhaps I’m just extra- but for me personally, I am always TERRIFIED that my switch is gonna get damaged on the go- even with my cases and protectors. The switch lite sounds perfect for someone like me who loves their switch and plays both handheld and docked, but won’t ever leave the house with it. The lite will be for going out purposes only- while my regular switch will never leave my house.

                            This is Nintendo taking the handheld-only audience into consideration that are waiting for the next, more powerful handheld option by Nintendo. I am a solid design, handheld kind of guy, and really not a fan of the original hybrid at all, all those extra detachable parts giving me anxiety and features I do not care about, so this neat and pretty little machine that can play home console quality games is really a gift from the Nintendo gods to me, and all I’ve been waiting for since the initial Switch announcement. So yeah, to some of us, THIS IS HUGE! Nintendo cannot sell more than one or two of the original switch systems to each household as it stands, but now, slap some graphics and cool designs to the Lite and y’all be buying and stacking them like hot cakes. In my opinion they need to now build a separate, more powerful home console only device and give us the option to be able to link two devices to share save data and link to the same account to also share downloaded games for the Switch element.

                                What you want is the thing that's coming next. Switch Pro that's perma-docked and higher spec'd to compete with other home consoles. Whereas this went in the opposite direction to capture the 3DS crowd.

                                  Different doesn’t mean inferior. It wasnt meant for you. It is meant for lower budget people who just want to access the games and be on the go. It should be a huge success because that means more people can enjoy games

                                    This is still too pricey to be the right price for the target demographic :(

                                  This isn’t for people who already have a switch, it’s for the people who were turned off at the price of the switch. So basically, it’s not for you, don’t complain.

                                    I personally love the colors and the price point, but it being a "NoSwitch" is a big deal breaker.

                                    Yeah I definitely agree with you on it being for kids. People over the age of 20 are gunna have an extra 100 bucks and are going to value the ability to play it on a big screen.

                                    Also consider this. Every game is "compatible" but not really. If the Switch Lite is their only Switch in the household, who is going to buy something like Smash or Mario Party? At least Mario Party is completely useless as it's pretty much impossible to get the full 4 player party experience with a tiny screen, but Smash also, while there technically is single player, the big fun for me is solely playing with a couple friends in the same room, not online (especially since online is god awful with the lag)

                                      They will do a Switch pro eventually for sure. This console is clearly aimed at kids and for them it’s great

                                        Reasons I’m going to get the switch lite

                                        1. It’s cheaper
                                        2. I only have an interest in playing it as a portable

                                          No docking is a huge problem. The 3DS was not a Wii U portable. It was its own thing with its own games. This is a "console" with a tiny screen. It seems to me like this is for those people who already have the base model or cannot afford a full console. Plus, $200 is too much for this unit. This and Switch pro on the horizon makes the Lite seem a niche item.

                                            Honestly? I Like the Nintendo Switch Lite.

                                            Here is my reason. Why?
                                            1. Does not play on the TV. Check
                                            2. A true hand held gaming device now. Check
                                            3. A much lighter Nintendo Switch. Check
                                            4. Cheaper then the original. Check
                                            5. Who cares if it can't Switch from home/hand held device or docking it. Check
                                            6. I don't like to share it with others. Unless? It requires me to share so. Check
                                            7. No? Separate joy cons and are now one with the system. Check
                                            8. It has a D pad. Check

                                            Not to mention what they did to Pokemon. By? Killing off more then half the Pokemon from the old generation. Now? We are unable to transfer all the Pokemon into the new Gen 8. I want? All the Pokemon not some or half I mean every single one. Yes, I like to start off with new Pokemon every single game. But? I would like to use my old Pokemon team to use them in the new generation. My 2nd thought? Was Nintendo making the Pokemon games from a true hand held gaming console into a home gaming console now. Which shows? Nintendo truly officially killed off the 3DS line. Plus? I don't want to pay DLC or patches. Just to? Be able to transfer my old Pokemon into my new one. When I already own the game and system itself. It should be free and I should also not have to pay for a service. When the past Pokemon games? Never made me pay for it and was always free to transfer my old Pokemon into the new ones.

                                            Again who cares? If this version can no longer switch back into a home gaming console.

                                            That is my thoughts about the Nintendo Switch Lite.

                                                    I wonder how many versions of the Nintendo Switch Nintendo is going to make

                                                      The switch lite is not for people who already have a switch. I think the market is for those who don’t have it. Also, it’s good for those people who love handheld gaming like on the DS. Honestly, if I didn’t have a switch already, I would have gotten the lite version probably. I don’t play with other people, and I use my switch in handheld mode all the time. The lite isn’t inferior. It’s just different. It’s cheaper, and the joycons don’t have to come out, which I would have liked because I never took them out. Plus, as an animal crossing fan, if I was getting a switch just for animal crossing or Pokémon, I’d get this... and I’ve seen a lot of people online say they will do.

                                                      In conclusion, it’s different. Not superior or inferior. It’s geared for a different type of gamer. (Also, I LOVE the colors. I would get yellow. And I think a lavender or peach color would also be super cute)

                                                        I think this is perfect for people like me (who’s in college and doesn’t really have that much money to afford the REAL switch). I’ve been holding back on getting a switch because of the price but now they’re releasing switch lite, I think it’s perfect plus, I only want to get a switch for animal crossing new horizons and Pokémon sword.

                                                          Nintendo can't market the Switch Lite towards children because they explicitly said Labo was for children and the Switch Lite is not compatible with Labo.

As an avid splatoon 2 player I find the game awful playing in handheld and only ever play the game docked. Same story with games like super mario party and other motion control games. I don’t mind the concept of the switch lite, but I find it frustrating that many people who buy this system would miss out on select amazing games

Although I would love if Nintendo were to make consoles in blood red, gun metal, pure black, basically more darker colors. Even though I'm not getting this because ya you're actually right in a lot of things (which is honestly surprising) there's one feature I don't think many people would care about hd rumble being gone. It's the most useless thing on the Switch.

The most recent console we have in our house is the ps3, previously the Wii then the Gamecube. The handhelds tend to be more up to date cause they're cheaper. I enjoy taking my 2DS to play around the house and on holiday and such. The switch lite would be perfect for me because I'm 16 now and would have to save up for the original switch with the money I get from my Saturday job. At least the switch lite would make it more achievable for someone like me who is used to playing ACNL and MK7 round the clock on my handheld device. I'm not a little kid who could break the joy cons or loose them so in some ways it could reach an audience with people like me looking (hoping) for a cheaper alternative to play the newer games (which themselves are close to £60).
