    I forgot to add that the Lite also doesn't have a kickstand.

      Buying consoles because of hardware specs alone is idiocy. You buy consoles for the games they play. The console wars were never all about hardware. It was the SOFTWARE that sold them. A much valid argument would be: "Pokemon/Zelda/Kirby ain't for me, so I am not getting a Switch."

      Rule of 2 Review I agree with u 💯 percent on the docking part!! They could have made more 💰 for a wire to tv! Nintendo edition ( color schemes Mario red, Wario yellow, Luigi green, ect etc..I just made a video on it!! Loving the content!!! 🔥🔥🔥

      Rule of 2 Review what if the Nintendo Switch Lite can be used like a WiiU controller for your Nintendo Switch “Docked”?!

      NINTENDO should have made the Switch Lite connect to the tv the same way or similar to how the PSP connected to the tv. The PSP only used one cable that connected the bottom of PSP and then to the tv. It's as simple as that!

      I'm waiting for a Switch Pro, but knowing the Switch Lite is Handheld only. the Switch Pro could be Dock Only (aka a typical Home console).
      Switch Lite is here just in time for Zelda: Link's Awakening, Pokemon and Animal Crossing.
      Switch Pro may come out just in time for BotW 2 boasting more FPS and less load time, but hopefully no exclusive games to split the fanbase.

    It doesn't bother me that the new switch doesn't play through the TV.I have the original switch and it's been through the TV twice and the first time was to check it worked.I may buy this for my son at Xmas providing I've saved up.

        Nintendo is just getting money selling consoles and slightly upgrading systems or remaking or porting old games when will they stop and actually put time into good games! What's the point of buying a new system without good games?

            Why is this called a switch?? Cause u can't use it on a tv. So u can't switch between tv and handheld.

              It will have better battery life, because there's no rumble and screen is smaller. But I'm not interested in Lite anyway, because I can't hook it up to TV. So, I'm ok with portable only switch, but it's not for me.

                With the disposable joy con issue, $300 price tag and barely any games that interested me when the switch launched, I’m glad they are making the switch lite the way it is now that more games are catching my eye. Plus it’ll probably go on sale for about $150, is about the size of a vita (which I always wanted but fck their sd cards) and the lite will probably get neat exclusive editions that I’m excited to see. Some ppl just love to complain. Not everything is going to appease everyone. And not everyone wants another console to play on tv, I’m ready for a new handheld. If I wanna play on the tv I’ll play my Xbox 🤪

                This isn’t necessarily directed to you btw, just folks always whining in comments. 🥰

                    Docked mode was never really possible with the size, weight and price point of the Switch Lite. In docked mode the switch pulls over twice as much power as it does in portable mode, so it also needs to disapate twice as much heat. That level of cooling was never going to be possible without either an increase in size and weight, which is silly for a 'lite' product, or a large increase in price for chips that can do docked mode graphics at portable mode power consumption, which might not even be possible and if it is would cost a lot more money. Unfortunately your expectations were never in line with what was possible.

                          This is pretty much the best you can get for this price. Everything combined makes sense.

                            It doesn’t dock on purpose, so you either have to buy the more expensive one or buy a second one. $$$

                              Yeah, it's not for me, but it's going to sell like crazy, so it bodes well for the future of the Switch. That Pokémon bundle is going to sell tons of consoles.

                                Why would a downgrade of the switch have a 1080p screen? That’s just silly.

                                  if it had better screen resolution i would ran to gamestop and traded in the switch in a second ...honestly i never play it out of the docking id rather have one or the other both on the switch always feels like it will break and not work anymore on dock or off . rather have the pro version with no handheld option

                                    I'm usually very skeptical about leaks and rumors but in this case the signs were to clear and I did believe that we were going to get a switch mini

                                      This thing has no kickstand, no detachable joy cons or hd rumble. Whats the point of this shit. Thought the whole selling point was to have a switch that was more comfortable to play on the go. And was going to be for people who mostly play there switch undocked. Whats comfortable about carrying a switch all the time not being able to set it down and play on a table or anywhere?

                                        Maybe its me or a coincidence but in the video footage/commercials, you don't see a single person using the right thumbstick. This console is for Trump hands or for very young children. Theres no way a person with "normal" size hands can play for an hour in this thing.
                                        I bet that in the US, Adults will sue Nintendo for recking their right hands. :)

                                            I wish people would stop comparing the switchless Switch to the DS Lite. The DS lite did not lose any functionality; in fact, it was FAR better than the previous version. No thanx Nintendo, I will wait for the PRO model.

                                              Why are people complaining about this???? If you don't like the switch lite, just buy the regular one..... It's a cheaper option for people want to play the switch titles. More options are better for everyone.

                                                Or you know... Like ROB said, he just not gonna buy it or wait for Switch upgrade.

                                              The only reason they did that is because if the lite was able to output on the tv, why would anyone buy the current switch? Why not buy the cheap one that does everything like the 300$ switch but has a d-pad and looks cooler? This is why Nintendo removed the ability to output, its not a price concern because the console is already without a dock, and hdmi cable and without proper joycon with hd rumble. They save a lot more money than 100$ just by removing all of that. I think Nintendo is extremely greedy and always play with their fans.

                                                      The Switch Lite is the less exciting announcement since the beginning of the Switch era. It is virtually the death of Nintendo Labo which was the most innovative thing in the world of gaming in general since the Wii Remote. I'm also more and more concerned about the possibility the finally see a motion controlled tennis game on the Switch now that a certain number of consoles are going to be sold without motion controllers.

                                                        I hope Nintendo Switch Pro has some improvements from the original like no drifting, longer battery life, 1080p and so on.

                                                          So basically it's a kind of replacement for the ds.

                                                            I think an interesting thing that no one is taking about is no more heroes 3 or other games that might use the joy cons kinda like Wiimotes. I know you could make games without it but if a lot of people can not use that function I think it would be weird to emphasize that function.

                                                              The reason the switch isn't comfortable to play in portable mode for a long time is because of the button/stick layout. The Vita is much more comfortable to play for long periods of time

                                                                          I personally would want a Switch Pro with more power, and ditch the screen so you can lower the cost.
                                                                          I'll have the OG Switch to play mobile and the Pro for BotW 2 with smoother gameplay, better load times and more FPS!

                                                                          I like your emphasis on the word "Switch," because, as the word implies, a Switch device is supposed "switchable." That, in my belief, is the one function that most defines a Switch device.

                                                                          I feel that by keeping the Switch name in this product, Nintendo may confuse potential buyers (just like they did with the naming of the WiiU: I heard that even today, some people think "WiiU" is an add-on for the original Wii).

                                                                          I can just imagine the retailers trying to explain it: "It's a Switch, doesn't really switch to your TV."

I also don't like the pack of t.v. play. Most of time I would prefer to play on the t.v.. Of course I can't do eother without a Switch but that's besides the point. This is clearly aimed at children and short adults. I am neither so it is a much harder sell to me.

OG switch still doesn’t get a price drop and so this switch lite comes with a price drop but that’s obvious because it loses a ton of features. PS4 got a price drop but they didn’t make it so the system was weaker they just dropped the price. It’s Nintendo being Nintendo again. Greedy
