I am surprised Nintendo didn't advertise the release of the regular Switch with improved battery life a bit more. Some 3DS/2DS owners might have been waiting to get a Switch until a model with improved battery life was made available. I only play the Switch docked, but people who mainly play it on the go have to worry about the battery only lasting a few hours.
I don't know honestly, possibly a combination of not wanting those who just scooped up a Switch to feel ripped off and not wanting to draw attention away from the Lite.
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
