Nintendo Switch Lite Officially Revealed - $199, September 20th, Dedicated Handheld

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Switch Lite Officially Revealed - $199, September 20th, Dedicated Handheld

BOOM! I love it!



Switch!!!

Around the Network

I'm not concerned about it not being able to be docked. And this is coming from someone who almost never uses his Switch in handheld mode. But there is definitely a market for the Switch Lite, and at $200 it still offers plenty of value. As long as they keep making the regular Switch (which they 100% will), then this introduction is only good.

Although, serious question here, will the ugly colors hurt sales?

I came up with several reasons why, you just don't like them.

And, what is my agenda?

I see you posting reasons for why you wouldn't call other systems "hybrid", but not why Switch (the original model) isn't a valid home console.
What other/future Switch models do doesn't change what the original model can do.

Aside from that, if the rumored Switch Pro that was delayed can't be played in handheld mode, but is permanently docked, would that change your outlook?

I don't see what's so hard to understand. Just because a handheld can be connected to a TV and use a separate controller doesn't make it a home console. If it does, than there's several handhelds that can be considered "home consoles", starting with the Sega Nomad. If you want to use a term that broad to define "hybrid console" then all the power to you. Like I said, it's a marketing term. It's literally a matter of opinion.

If Nintendo makes a "switch" that can only be connected to a TV and doesn't have an independant power supply, Nintendo will have released a weak home console that plays Switch games. That doesn't make that console a hybrid. And if it did, that would mean that the PS4 has to be considered a hybrid since Sony bundled the PS4 and the PS Vita together in Europe and therefore "out of the box" you were able to play any PS4 game as long as you had a strong enough wireless (possibly 3g? not sure) connection, does that mean the 

Let me turn it around. Let's say Sony makes a portable PS4, and has a separate dock accessory that allows to connect the portable to a TV, and sync multiple PS4 controllers to it, is that "a hybrid console" in your mind? Why or why not? If not, if Sony then creates a bundle that includes the dock accessory in one box, does that make it a hybrid?

Does anyone know of games that don't support handheld mode? From what I recall all the games I own do support it.

I can't think of much outside of 1-2-Switch and Nintendo Labo.

How about Just Dance, for starters?

Or Super Mario Party?



Will VGC count the Lite sales together with the regular one? Or at least this one will be counted as handheld console?



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Nice.
I... Actually fully expect a switch pro Launching next march, 1080p screen, maybe 1440p output at 350, with a revised dock that allows switch light docking.



Just in time for a limited edition Link Awakening version!!!!



Switch!!!

Together. Just as they did with all the countless DS and 3DS revisions.

I agree with you and I've mentioned this on another unrelated thread, but this opinion will be regarded here as heresy. If I were you I'd just give in. You'll not find many that will agree with you anyway. It's a waste of your time.

So Lite sales will be counted against PS/XB? Does it make sense?
