    What do you want in a Switch 2?

That will cause a huge surge in sales why?  Who do you think is going to be buying that?

Clearly you have no interest in one because you put dumb internet message board arguments over everything else (and then end up getting dunked on by Sony fans in the end anyway). So console LTD is all that matters to you even above gaming...

Switch 2 is probably going to raise the price up to $349.99 to start as that's a more lucrative price position, something like the Switch Lite at least will be like $149.99-$169.99 by then ... they would be serving completely different parts of the market by then....

    I think if a Switch Pro is imminent, and it will be a pretty substantial upgrade, but there are still ways to ensure Pro games still run on older Switch models while still having an upgrade for Switch Pro. Then that probably would move a full blown Switch 2 into 2023. Ultimately consumers decide in the end. A company can huff and puff and talk all they want about lifecycles, doesn't mean...

    Rumor: Nintendo plans to launch a new Switch SKU in 2020 - UPDATE: Nintendo says no

    in Nintendo Discussion on 11 January 2020

    The more I look into the more I think Switch Pro can happen without fracturing the software library. People have gotten the existing original Switch units (the old 20nm chip) to run at 786 GHz overclocked (which is docked clock speed) undocked. This guy did it for DOOM: https://www.reddit.com/r/SwitchHaxing/comments/ao9tsq/comparing_doom_2016_on_switch_before_and_after/ Yes, the battery...

The DS is going to pull away from the Switch in its sales curve soon if it hasn't already, so I don't think that's really much of a comparable unless Switch is going to sell 30 million+ the next two years (doubtful).
