What Do You Think to the Nintendo Switch Lite?

Excellent idea, can't wait to buy one 150 12.71%
Good idea, could be better though 346 29.32%
Not sure yet, could go either way 92 7.80%
Not good, probably won't buy 124 10.51%
Awful idea, zero interest 360 30.51%
Other 108 9.15%

Dont like the idea, not interested, wont buy. Portability is the last thing I care about any console. I never even take my 3ds out ot the room. So no, not for me at least. Regular Switch ftw.

It's a great idea but not for me. I already own a Switch and it suits me perfectly but for someone more into handhelds it's fucking awesome.

Signature goes here!

I'd say, "Good Idea, could be better". They could have got even better battery life than they did by shrinking the DIE even more, which would have been ideal since it's a handheld. I also think they should have left the HD rumble motors in, even if they had to charge $225 instead of $200 to do it. 

I'm still buying one though.

I saw it coming.... what I didn't see coming though was the nerfing. At the very least they could have just let you connect a cable to it and that cable to your TV.

I personally expected them to keep the NS general FF but just take ou the dock and replace that with a cable. That way its feature identical with the original NS as opposed to what they have done here. Strange choice.

Right now,its a switch that doesn't switch.

If this had been released at the same time as the actual switch I would’ve bought one over the switch at launch without question, but not sure I’ll bother for now. Vastly improved battery life might’ve sold me on it. I mainly play my switch in handheld mode and I don’t like the ‘wonky’ feel of the joy-cons when attached so a single solid device without removable bits is a plus as well. And I like the d-pad...yet I do like the option of playing on my tv with the pro controller as well. Some games are more suited to a big screen imo. I’m not holding out for the supposed pro model or anything but I would like to see a new switch with a few enhancements like slightly larger screen and aforementioned battery life improved more than an hour or so...so I’ll most likely pass for now but if I hadn’t bought a switch already I’d snap one up. I can definately see the appeal and think it’ll be a huge success.

No interest from me, but i'm sure that there are people that'll buy it. I mostly play mine hooked up to my tv, with a Pro controller.

Love the look of it and excellent idea for those that enjoy the handheld gaming life.

I will never buy one to replace my original Switch, but I can see myself buying one as a secondary Switch just for fun.

I'm actually surprised that Nintendo didn't instead make a home console version like the Vita TV. But maybe they will after this. I'm certain there wont be a Switch Pro.

I don't think it's such a bad idea, though it does negate the whole idea of the "Switch". As a current Switch owner, there is no reason for me to buy one. It is just the same thing, but less functional.

I think it's a great idea. The only thing to really improve is give it a longer battery life.

Not sure if/when I will buy one. My daughter and I both play our Switch, mostly docked. If she really wants her own handheld, then I will likely get her one in the future.
