Forums - Gaming Discussion - (prediction) The Switch won't see any hardware revisions/variations in its life-cycle whatsoever

However, based on Nintendo's past consoles and compatibity and marketing issues, I dont think any of these will ever come to fruition.

And that is where your argument fails.
The Switch is not like any of Nintendo's past consoles before, in the fact that none of them also functioned like a handheld. And every single Nintendo handheld, from the 3DS all the way back to the original Game Boy has had multiple revisions and variations.

As for consoles, they ALWAYS had add ons. The famicom disk system. Satilaview. N64DD.
And if you want better performance, superfx and the n64 expansion pak.

From the same company that has 6 different models of the 3DS in 6 years. Sure.

and 4 models of DS... and goodness knows how many models of GB/GBC and GBA.

4 GB models and 3 GBA models. They didn't make any GB revisions until 1996, though.

The year Pokémon released, what a coincidence.

The Switch is designed so well though. I don't really see any significant changes for it. The Original DS and 3DS needed revisions at the time and so did the GBA. I just don't see any huge flaws that a Switch revision would fix.

I am on the camp of no major revision except for maybe memory upgrades. They might make a smaller more simple version of the Switch for kids though.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Imagine when tegra x2 or x3 becomes avaliable to fit in switch, it will be more efficient.
I dont believe in larger switch too. But maybe a larger screen, but with the same dock and joycon sizes, when better tecnology arives.
Also, a VR revision. (http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=230827&page=1)
But the problem of a mini switch without detachable joycon and without a dock is that it wont be a 'switch'. The main feature of the console is changing to a mode to other, it is the name of the switch.
I can see a mini switch with and extra feature that you could switch between modes. Maybe a mobile mode, where you can play nintendo mobile games, or even a 2DS mode.
Or else, mini switch with detachable mini joycon. They can be expandable to became as the same size as the regular switch joycon. So, the same controller would work in any switch, despite their size. Also, it would also need extra tecnology.
Many things can happen.

But at least i can see a more efficient switch version, at the same size and form and better battery life. Id call it a revision.



I doubt we'll see a switch xl because it's already bigger than the Vita and the biggest 3ds by a good bit but a switch mini, switch pro and switch TV just make too much sense. A cheaper portable only version, a cheaper tv only version then a tegra x2 version to gradually phase out the day 1 model like the 3ds and new 3ds



A question, how much cheaper could a Switch TV be? No battery, no screen, no dockable parts... How much cheaper could it be compared to the regular model?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I could see a SCD to make it's way mid-cycle for the hardcore players the best performances in their Ninty games, I mean, it's been rumored again.
