Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Pachter: "Nintendo should get rid of the Switch console and have only the Lite"

"I don’t really understand the whole hybrid concept. I think that was something Iwata did to differentiate the Switch, and he wanted to have a console that could go back and forth from console to portable. But I don’t think most people play it in both modes, I would say that maybe 20% of Switch owners play both modes; and I think most Switch owners play it handheld only. So I honestly don’t understand the whole point of the hybrid. Who cares? Play it as a handheld.

And Nintendo isn’t that smart, so you never know what they will do next, but I think the smart thing would be to get rid of the Switch console and only have the Switch Lite, get rid of the docking station, get rid of playing on the TV; maybe offer a Fire Stick style dongle for those who do want to play it on the TV. But I just think that a portable-only Switch makes the most sense, it’s the cheapest to make, and they could make the screen nicer and the build quality better."

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I think we have to just stop paying this dude any mind.


Yeah, Nintendo is the one that isnt that smart...sure Pachter. Having only the Lite would make it about the same price for people who wants separate Joy-Cons anyway. God forbid they give us options...

You need docked switch to record gameplay from a capture card like El gato HD60 S

I game on all consoles and PC

Will patcher ever STFU?

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

He's right that why the Lite version is the highest sellin.... oh wait... checks numbers... Hmmm hybrid sales constantly higher than Lite numbers. I've changed my mind, he's an idiot.

Signature goes here!

This my be my new favorite Patcher take.

I think Pachter threads should be auto-locked and editors should stop paying any attention to him. He is certainly a paid shill and everything that comes out of his mouth is less valuable than a carton bag of vomit.
