If they're gonna do it this year, alongside Pokemon, I would think an August/September reveal would be the way to go, with a November release.

Or, you know, **** me. Announce it right now.

I don't like that they removed HD rumble, but I'm guessing that's for battery life?

I still wanna know if they fixed the control sick issue. Would be pissed of I had to send in my $200 console because my stick was drifting.

**** me too, in another thread last night I made the statement it would be revealed after the holidays with a Spring release so they could still milk this holiday season from the original design. So we both need to start eating some hats I suppose.

Lol, the release date feels so soon! Like, it's not quite a summer release, and it's pretty far ahead of the holiday season.  But I guess it makes sense to get inventories ahead of all that.

No TV support? They should have called it the Nintendo Fixie since it can't Switch gears!

Closest I've got with a mockup.



I went with too GBA style shoulders though.



The rumors were there are two models. I hope they'll announce a pro. Otherwise I'm still in skip mode.

Nintendo could've resurrected GameCube Purple and chose not to.

COWARDS!

I was hoping that the Lite could sub as a controller for another Switch, and create a backdoor Wii U tablet feature. With the goal of a Switch/person instead of Switch/household, it could become a reality.

I am also most likely waiting for a Pro. I had considered the Lite a possible console for my wife, and she was half on board with it since we like to play games together, but she is now hard pass because of the lack of docking capabilities.

No docking is a bit of a miss for us. Also, I want to know how the accounts will work. Would suck if someone wants a "home" Switch and a "travel" one but it won't let you use both with your one account in tandem.

Other people are experiencing this too? Thought I was the only one...

Certainly adds a level of challenge to some games to have your character randomly walk off a ledge.

Yeah, it's a known fault in the hardware, to my understanding.  Not sure why it hasn't been fixed, but it would require them to redesign the sensors or something.

Alright, so there is another model coming out soon as well that is identical except that it has a better battery.

So if the Nintendo Switch Lite and New model Switch have the same processor, is Nintendo blocking the video out with software, or did Nintendo get USB C that doesn't send video out?  Because if it is the software then the hacking community will eventually break that.  if it is the later then probably modding communities will mod it to work. 

I understand why Nintendo made this choice, if you have a cheaper system that can still connect to the TV then why wouldn't you buy that one? Nintendo had to have perceived value to the original Switch, that is different than the new one.

Locking out docked mode may have something to do with Switch Lite’s smaller housing. Maybe the higher clock speeds still cause the unit to heat up too much to be docked. Even if someone hacks Switch Lite to dock, it could end up damaging the unit. Of course, I don’t know for certain because I’m not a scientician. Just throwing this out there as a possibility.

Switch Lite doesn’t come with Joy Cons (and the ability to charge them) or a dock which are more than $100 separately. Joy Cons offer built-in multiplayer. Even if you never use them, the dock is $80 separately. For argument’s sake, let’s say Switch Lite could dock. For $20, consumers would be deciding whether they want a larger screen. Both models provide value in their own way. OG would be savings via a complete package; Lite would be choice and greater portability.

So Nintendo finally caved in the face of the class action lawsuit and will now repair defective controllers for free and refund any money they charged for previous repairs. HOPEFULLY they fix the underlying part issue so they don't break again in a few months.

This is great news. I've been holding off on sending mine too get fixed because I moved recently. Also, it's kinda hard to find single joy-con replacements, so even if the cost works out about the same, you're almost better off getting it fixed.

I am surprised the rumors are not more focused on an upcoming direct.

I think people expect a January/February Direct from Nintendo already, and "signs point" to that direction, so it's like they know it's happening anyway.

Rumor mills going insane. New OLED screen rumor making the gaming pundits drool.

When it actually gets a name then 'll change the name of the thread. :)

of course at the same time last year I was saying the same thing.

I'm in the "Super Switch" name camp, but really I'll be happy so long as they don't give it a dumb name like 'New' or add and 'i' at the end or 'Plus'/'+'. Nintendo really sucks at names when upgrading systems.

They used to be good at it.

Super Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Super Switch


New Switch is dogshit. I can't believe nobody has set down the execs and explained naming things New to Anglophones is stupid. New Super Mario bros came out 15 years ago.

New Kids on the Block are in their 50s. Donnie Wahlberg is not a kid, and he's not new. He's objectively middle aged. They're just Dudes on the Block now.
