Absolutley, I'd go for a £199.99 Docked Only Switch over a £279.99 normal one any day.

Not fair. The savings of PS Vita TV compared to Vita were only $50.

that was example of a price he would like to see, and the mention of the PS Vita TV was just to explain the concept of the console, not to draw comparisons...

me personally , would only buy it for 150 because that is what i think is a good price for this "Switch"...

A cheaper price bundled with a pro controller would instantly make the Switch much more appealing to me. The portability means nothing to me, it just makes it more expensive and awkward.

As it stands, I'm not going to pay that much just for Zelda and the handful of other exclusives I'd play on the system, as it would be my last choice for multi-plats.

I think a much cheaper SKU would increase sales as a "second console" for the Switch that won't be there at its current price point.

At its current price point it's selling exceptionally well, though. Why reduce the price tag to secure a "second console" market when it's succeeding at $300 as a "first console"?

just because it's succeeding right now, why wouldn't they give customers more options and aim a even bigger target?

Hey, they can do what they want.  If Apple or Samsung doesn't want to make different phone models then they can do as they please.  I'm just pointing something out.

So this thread is basically like asking if people are interested in a $199 PS4 in mid-2014.



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

That's dumb. it loses the entire point so with a name like a Switch on it would be silly. Then people would just whine it's only an underpowered console. If anyone bought Voez they would have wasted money.

I don't know. The production, storage, R&D, and opportunity costs for a different SKU might not be worth whatever revenue would be earned from it.

Why invest in a cheaper, docked SKU that might not sell and take up valuable real estate in stores, when you could continue to manufacture a product known to be a winner? 



Never a bad thing to offer more options so Nintendo should make a console version of the Switch.



100%

All I want is a tiny box that plays Nintendo games. Sell me the switch internal hardware in a normal console that comes with a pro controller instead of Joycons for $199. I beg of you Nintendo.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

Nope. There are those of us who are interested in Nintendo games but aren't interested in their gimmicks.

The Switch is more complex.
A Switch TV would not need to have things like rails to connect the Joycon.
Nintendo would not need to pack in grips, docks and the Joycon straps.

A Switch TV would greatly reduce the device's complexity, and would likely come after the main unit's first price cut.
