For those intrested, if its just longer battery life?

TL:DR =
DreamcastGuy seems to think, you get ~5-10% better performance, which in some games help it keep dynamic resolutions slightly better.
Also loading some of the bigger games, seems to go ~0,5s faster or so (very slight, barely worth mentioning).
Joycon's seem more abit "sturdy" and "heavy", he speculates Nintendo might have done so, in hopes of preventing the drift issue.
battery life? his old Switch would last like ~2,5 hours in BoTW, while the new one almost did 6hours.


Anyone here with a Switch planning to upgrade?

Of course it's worth the price, because it's the same price for better battery life lol.



Eh... I'll wait for someone with any evidence/numbers that there is a performance boost. He just seems to be saying the dynamic resolution looks "10%" better to his eyeballs. Could easily just be psychological.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

It's tempting alone for the battery live. I carry around a loader if needed but a charge level would mean no loading untill home.

The entire list beyond the known improvement of battery life is probably psychological, because he wants to believe that there's more to this SKU.

The title of the video is nonsensical too, because the question it asks is redundant. The new SKU was never meant to make current Switch owners upgrade. On the other hand, those who don't own a Switch yet can buy a better console than before at the same price.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

for those dissapointed its "the same switch", and not a Switch pro.....

I have no need to upgrade for battery life alone. My OG Switch gets 10 to 13 hours with my Anker battery bank (official licensed one) and that is more than enough time for me. It seems like a solid upgrade though for those buying their first Switch and want the ability to dock it and take it on the go.

If you haven't got one yet, I'd say of course ! Otherwise, people should wait until it drops in price or the time where their old model will go to the scrap.

Video is stupid. Just made up crap, basically.

As for the Switch, it certainly doesn't make sense for the average owner to upgrade. As others have already said, it just means new Switch owners get a product with more reasonable battery life. I can't see it doing much to drive sales.



OK time to buy Switch. That's why people who is patiently waiting always be the winner.
