    The Nintendo Switch Lite is a smaller handheld-only portable that will be released this fall. It is being described as a Nintendo Switch for those who just want to play on the go.

    The Lite will come in three colors: yellow, gray, and turquoise. Priced at $199.99, the Switch Lite is cheaper than the standard-issue Switch, which goes for $299.99.

    It is also a slightly smaller piece of hardware. Compared to the regular Switch, which measures 4 inches high and 9.4 inches long, the Switch Lite is 3.6 inches high and 8.2 inches long. The Lite’s touch screen is also slightly smaller (5.5 inches compared to the regular Switch’s 6.2-inch touch screen). The Lite, however, does have a longer battery life and a D-Pad instead of directional buttons. Size is not the only difference. Unlike the regular Switch, it will not feature detachable Joy-Con controllers or a kickstand, and it won’t support TV mode. The Lite also does not come with with a Switch Dock.

    Regarding game compatibility, Nintendo writes:

    Nintendo Switch Lite can play the games in the Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode.

    For games that do not support handheld mode, players can wirelessly connect compatible controllers (sold separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite. If using separate Joy-Con controllers, users will need to have a device to recharge them, such as the Joy-Con Charging Grip.

    To find play mode compatibility information for specific games, please refer to the product packaging or Nintendo eShop.

    To me the removed features arent even a big deal and I think this will lead to Switch selling 100 million in no time! :D What do YOU think of the Switch Lite?

      mel b That's the point! Why are they in in the first place if they aren't gonna use them? Inflating the price for no reason at all.

      DreamcastGuy The switch lite... A console missing everything that makes the switch unique. It shouldn't be called a switch yet. It also means we won't get games that use the joycon features... Yet another useless overpriced Nintendo controller.

      The console having a D pad and us being grateful is like apple putting the headphone jack back and us giving them praise, the switch lite is just a Wii u mini, taking away every feature that would get me to buy a switch and selling it for $200+ tax is absolutely idiotic, it better have some features to warrant the price tag, the whole reason I want a switch is for it's docking capabilities

    I was excited about the Lite until today's new Switch news. That mega battery boost has made me cancel my Lite preorder now.

    • xbox has no games lol xbox sucks ass

      Its gonna cost canadians 350 or 400 same price as the normal switch

        So let me get this straight, you're excited a console you've had for just 2 years broke, losing half it's functionality, cause now you can buy another console, meaning you now need 2 consoles just to do what one did? I think the Switch Lite is a joke, and the only people who will want this are parents looking for a cheap kids system, people who onlyuh want the device as a mobile platform, and people who can't afford an actual switch. Also, VC is not gonna happen. If the Wii could do N64 emulation, the base Switch has no excuse.

                          Nintendo is dying. Nobody cares about Switch. 3DS was common enough sight, but I've never seen anyone playing on Switch on the streets of this city. Yeah. Nintendo was fool to discontinue 3DS. They basicallly put all their eggs into the wrong basket. Well, good riddance. Only sad, lonely fanboys care about that brand any more.

                              It does have less features! My phone's screen is larger than the Switch Lite.

                              For all the things they removed, they should have added backwards compatibility for DS and 3DS games.

                              I also agree with what you said about the DS Lite and the reason I didn't buy a DSi.

                              I'm waiting to see what the Switch Pro will be about. I don't own a switch. Son does. Until then, I'll keep enjoying my Vita and buying the game's that appeal to me and expanding my catalog of PS1 RPGs.

                                            So basically it's a Wii U mini, I can't think of a single reason to buy this

                                                  so its basicly a new portable console i mean its better then the normal switch its a very good deal in my opinion

Their pricing of things now is a big reason why I avoid the original Switch (parts quality is another). I might could have been persuaded to get this new version despite the crazy cons they have made of it but $200? They can suck it. $150 I would consider the though and say $120 or MAYBE even $135, I would be on the wait list for it just to play a few certain games on the go despite their pricing system usually not being attractive to me. For now, this seems almost as stupid as the Xbox SAD. I'll be sticking with my PS3 & Xbox One X unless something changes with Nintendo's greed.

The only thing about it that can even be considered a hybrid was its audience as that mixes both console and portable players. But it has only ever been a modular (the controllers) portable system with a tv out. Many handhelds have had a tv out. Fuck even phones have tv out options.

                                                                            For the Nintendo switch to ever be a hybrid system then they need to release a dock that has a gpu, a cpu and ram. And then once docked either the docks internals kick in or the docks and switch's internals work together. That's the only way for it to be a hybrid system.

                                                                            As it stands anyone who says its a hybrid you realize that you sound like a person who says sega genesis has blast processing.

                                                                            Btw I enjoy my switch but I have never been in love with it at all. Its neat and has some advantages but it has a strong fanboy base. Most youtubers are a bit disgusting about it.

                                                                            • Robert Jastrzebowski
