Nah, it's like buying another PS4 just for the slim version, kinda waste of money imo. Unless my switch decides to blow up when FE comes out, I won't be switching ;) anytime soon.

God no.

My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

If you already have a Switch I'm not really sure why you would pick up a Switch Lite, unless you're a collector of course. I thought the Lite model would be smaller so it could fit in a (reasonably sized) pocket but from what I can see it's close to the same form factor.

I'm probably going to keep the standard Switch for myself and in a few years let my two older kids upgrade to Switch Lite and pass down their 2DS's to my 2 younger kids.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I wish they did the opposite and give me a PSTV style switch arround the same price or cheaper if possible.

I still think this is going to happen eventually, $149.99 just for the console or $199.99 with a pair of Joy-Cons or Pro Controller bundled.

Probably played my Switch in handheld mode for about 30 seconds. Except for some levels in Rayman Legends that required it.

I'm planning to buy NS lite, otherwise I would have to wait a lot to play NS games, and later when I can afford the hybrid one , I will purchase it and use it only as a home console.
Anywise, NS as a handheld console hasn't so good battery autonomy and it feels incovieniently huge to me...

I'll get one, I like smaller form factors and games like Pokemon and Animal Crossing have always been handheld experiences for me.

There are certain moons in super Mario Odyssey that can only be obtained with hd Rumble. I'm just putting it out there.

Nah, I'll keep my standard Switch. This really does nothing for me but I fully understand why they're doing this. It's going to sell like crazy. I'll just wait until the Pro.

I will only buy a Lite for my 4 year old, but not for myself (unless there is a Zelda collector's edition version).

I play both docked and on the go equally, so the Lite holds no value over the OG model for me personally.
