I feel like a lot of people on the internet are still missing the point of the Lite and applying the flawed logic of "if it's not for me, it's pointless".

Totally agree with this, I see so many lame "OMG a Switch that doesn't switch" type posts from casual gamers on social media. 

Around the Network

It’s releasing this Friday (3 days remaining) and so far the best selling switch lite (according to amazon) is the turquoise sitting at number 51 out of 100 of best selling video games/consoles.

Don’t know if the sales are going to be that high, but at least here in Australia eBay plus are selling them for aud$229 which equals to USD 160. The RRP price is aud$299 and $329 for the Pokémon special edition.

Nope. I only play mine hooked up to my tv.

Switch has a larger display... So that automagically discounts the Lite for me.

Waiting on a Switch TV to be honest that rids the Switch of everything that makes it mobile, then I'll jump onto the platform.

I'm happy with my dockable Switch, I won't be changing it any time soon.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Yes, I have the yellow one pre ordered.

"Wheel me out to the curb for garbage day"

I'd buy one when my old Switch doesn't work anymore.

Folks like us (at least most of us) aren't the target audience for this. It's primarily for parents who want to buy a cheap portable for their kids, the Japanese market, and 3DS owners who haven't upgraded yet cos the base Switch was too expensive/not portable enough.

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

No, I like being able to dock/undock. I instead bought the newer model of switch with better battery life and will sell my old one.
