I Was COMPLETELY WRONG About the Switch Lite

    The lack of TV output, smaller screen, and HD rumble (the later not as much) are pretty core options. We use our switch in TV and in handheld modes - TV we play super smash and also mario party as a family. Zelda BOTW on the TV with a pro-controller and hooked up to a 5.1+ surround sound system really is the only real way to play the game. Trust me, the $100 more is worth it for the full Switch if you are a streamer, a TV gamer, and/or a family. If you're just by yourself and you view gaming as a non-social experience - then go for the Lite.

        it is all the bad parts of the Switch without its awesome parts. But hey, at least you can play most games without buying additional JoyCons

          Put a red seal on it a little bigger then the rating to the very right at the same elevation as the rating saying “warning switch lite doesn’t play certain games so check on the back to see if it works” oh wait or the is on the lite box it won’t have a rating well put it anyway but a little big and noticeable and games say if they can play in hand heads on the front wouldn’t stop everyone from accidentally buying a game that doesn’t work but I’m sure they can just either return or sell it but idk this was an idea

                I think they kept the name for two reasons. 1) it plays Switch Games, and 2) Doug Bowser said in a interview Cloud Saves and transferring data to multiple Switches is being developed. So most likely, you can have a "Home Switch" that is docked to your TV, save your game (upload the save data), then log into your more mobile Switch Lite update your save file then take your game on the go. Ergo, your still "Switching" from TV to Portable.

                The only thing that could bite into the Switch Lite sales number is the newly announced Switch revision, that utilize the new SoC, Substrate, NAND, and RAM revision found in Switch Lite. Which in turn, boosts the efficiency of the current Switch and increases battery life to 4.5-9 hours instead of the 2.5-6.5 hours. I was going to preorder a Switch Lite, but after making this announcement, I may just keep with the same form factor, and get the revised Switch over the Switch Lite.

                  200 isnt cheap. If you are going to get a switch, just spend 100 more dollars. Dont supply everyone in the house with a switch. You are gonna pay for every game, which is way too much. Just get 1 and force them to share, or if you have an extra big family, get 2.

                      With the switch being too small for my hands I require the pro controller even more so with the mini, so that alone would make the total cost roughly the same as a base switch with most key features gone including the dock. Does't sound worth it in that case. Joycons are at least somewhat serviceable and have all the features included, but making it smaller might necessitate the need for a pro controller.

                        No rumble would throw off a lot of Odyssey players where rumble is required to find hidden underground items.
                        Also that Star allies bonus with the rumble playing music... just gone now.

                                      All of my Nintendo switch controllers break after like a month or to it either has drift (witch is god awful) or if I drop it either the right stick breaks so you can't push it down or it happens to the left stick and I had have problems with one of the top buttons so it sucks that you can't detach the joy cons cuz if it breaks you stuck with a broken switch and I all ready know that they don't fix the joy cons so for 200 dollars really if that shit breaks in any way have fun spending 400 when the could have spent 300 and got a mmuuuuucchhh better deal

                                                Maybe there could be a switch lite pro, for like $20, you could add tv output and maybe some other things. I thought of something whilst you were talking about mario party. Have the console act like a con so it "works"

                                                                              • The Last Dragon
