Not only is there MK8D on Switch, but now Mario Kart Live, which will probably also be a long tail seller. Don't think MK9 is coming out any time soon.

I want a Super Switch!



I think it's most likely the second option. Staying on the Tegra and using the relationship with Nvidia for another bulk deal.

I voted Switch+.  I think the next Switch model will be an upgrade in the same way the "new 3DS" was an upgrade.  Switch+ will likely have the following features:

-greatly improved battery life
-modestly improved processor
-Joy Con drift issues are fixed
-might be able to steam 4k video content (this would make the 4K rumors technically true even though graphics on video games would be more or less the same)

This sums basically up what I was thinking. The 4K rumours strike me as odd, as this would massively increase the needed processing power. But a decent upgrade in power and a bigger battery seems alright, this is the New 3DS direction.

EDIT: Thinking about it, it might also be a Switch XL with bigger screen and bigger Joycons.

In my opinion, infinitely more important than fixing Joycon drift is fixing the de-sync issues and improving the gyroscopic controls. There might be something weak about the IR aiming, too, since it seems like something companies would take advantage of.in games like the RE ports - since IR aiming on Wii was a massive boost over other iterations of RE4.

The worst desync issue I’ve been coming across is not even in home console mode, but handheld. I find I’m often needing to jiggle the joycons or disconnect/reconnect the controllers for them to begin working again.

These are issues I want to see 100% fixed.


Joycon drift is a very simple issue to fix since it’s literally just a 2-3 minute cleaning job. So, while it would be nice to fix, it’s far from the top of the list of items that need improvement.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Anything that doesn't work should be in the top priority list. It's Nintendo responsibility to provide non-drifting joycons, not responsibility of consumers to fix it

I don't even know what handheld mode desync is supposed to be and  you pretty much the first one I've see relating this experience, seems a issue of your Switch 

Meanwhile I don't know a single person who didn't experience some kind drift afer some months



I know its not an original, and maybe not popular opinion... But I think they should make a model that is TV only, with the exact same specs as the OG Switch. They could offer it for the same price as the Switch Lite. Then they have options for all players. I think it would sell the least number of units compared to the other models, but I do think it would be successful.

Switch XL, like 3DS XL. Bigger screen, 4K.

I think you're onto something...  Nintendo will milk their success with this console a few more years and a higher powered big screen model sounds plausible. 



Feel free to check out my stream on twitch 

A switch with more power.... but I couldn't say if that's the "Pro" or the "+" you list, or whether it would use DLSS or not.



Considering DSi and New 3DS were powered-up versions of their respective consoles and both even had exclusive games, I expect the same for the Switch. Also, both Sony and Microsoft did the same with PS4 and Xbox One so...
