    Only revision I can see the Switch getting is a home-console-only version with a tad bit more power like the N3DS.
    Switch is already big enough and doesn't need to be XL
    I highly doubt Nintendo can compress the thing any more for a mini handheld-only version

    A bigger screen is always nice, but I think more storage space (like 64/128gb) is a better upgrade.
    Maybe joycons with a real dpad is also a nice option.

    I would only want a XL, if they were only increasing the screen size. Prefer 18:9, since that seems like the future of displays. Otherwise, I would want a Switch Lite/Slim. As in, decrease that border around the screen.
    They could increase the display to 1080p.
    lol

    I feel like the screen should be more like a tablet, resolution and clarity wise. I'm not complaining but if they were to change anything that's what I would want.

    You need a higher power cable to power the switch in dock mode. Even if you remove the dock, for upgraded performance for a TV you would need the extra power that a standard charger won't provide except the type c standard, which is already being used and technically is a standard charger. Switch dock dongle already exists, and Nintendo wouldn't make it cheaper just because it's a dongle instead of a dock.

    It's already got a huge back library, and it is still being supported with releases until at least the end of this year. You wouldn't want to give a kid a brand-new console anyway.

    Rendering 720p to a 1080p screen would be pointless. And it's not going to render 1080p portable unless you upgrade the internals. Even if it did, the battery would drain much faster.

    There's not a lot more they could do to child-proof it. Drops already wreck the joy cons well before they damage the main unit. It's really just a matter of whether you want to give a kid a $300 device or not. Get a protective case if so.

    Some parents gladly hand their $800 iPhone to their kid, so to each their own I guess.

    Even 1080p isn't really viable for VR unless you do a costly sub-pixel layout. So probably a $500 Switch to render 1080p N64 graphics in VR. They might as well just wait on Switch 2.

    I mean, local petitions are fine, especially for stuff like legalizing pot. Online petitions can disappear though, that'd be fine.

    Surprised it's not been mentioned (I think), but a better stand is essential, the current one is lousy and it falls over often
