It is basically a $100 price cut. Baseline will be raised for the rest of the year and a good time after, not just the first week
It's not just a price cut though, if you wanted a slimline just portable from Nintendo this is it, I know of a few people who had issues with the Switches TV features and removable joycons instead of it being a solid handheld unit (I even offered to weld/Glue joycons onto a Switch for a mate...)
I definitely could see the Lite getting other people to buy the Switch who might love the games but not the system with the dock and such so I would imagine the weekly could go up by 10k on average if the lite didn't drop, that is after the initial launch week which I see as being a 1m week easily.
Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
