    they do a dockless version in Japan for $226 but this lite was supposed to target mainly kids I guess this will eventually drop to $150 once the Pro is announced

    These look fucking cool. I’ll be getting one when it comes out that’s for sure. (Hopefully it gets exploited because I hate paying for games)

    provided you can sync joycons without attaching them, they might still allow mario party to be played if they allow an exception for the mini in an update. Just allow mini to be in "tabletop" mode somehow. It's...possible. But not very likely at all.

    It is confirmed that it doesn't have gyro? Aiming in Zelda and other games is gonna be near impossible with the standard sticks. I wanted one when I saw the clip but smaller screen and STILL no scaling when in handheld ( I use glasses and barely see text in Zelda) no TV out and no gyro is no for me.

    I forgot
    It still has the accelerometers/gyroscope so motion controls for games in handheld mode will still work.

    But it's not as long, so, the sticks will be a hassle, right?

    They should make an update for SMP that allows you to play in handheld mode. That seems easier than adding a "docked" mode to the Switch Lite (because that would probably overclock it and cause it to heat up).

    I play my Switch exclusively in handheld mode save for Mario Party (and Warriors Orochi 4 split screen), so I'd consider the Lite if I couldn't get a used Switch without a dock for a similar price.

    are there even games that dont work in handheld? i enever saw a game that only works on tv imo.besdies like mario party? which will probably recieve an update to work with it, if they say you need to buy joycons for 1-2 switch to work and whatnot.

    i wonder if batery life is better, if this thing can get like easy 5 hours batery life it could be good, i only play switch portable mode so i dont care much for for it.


    that would just be worthless, first nintendo has been defeated over and over on home market and been thriumphant in portable market, anyone who wants to play big games on a huge tv doesnt go for nintendo, they go for ps4 or xbone, so nintendo going back to releasing a pure switch home mode would just suck, well i will probably dont buy this but if there is ever a switch pro i will get it.

    Excellent. I would buy it. One switch will be for hacks, emulators and backups and the lite will be for online. Can we pre-order it already?

    I don't know who you are and seeing as how this is off topic take it to PMs or smth

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I think there are some third party games that only work on handheld but I've never seen any tv-only games

    Edit: Even super mario party works handheld, you just need to use the joy-cons wirelessly

    Why didn't they name it the 'Lite Switch' instead of the 'Switch Lite'? Henceforth, I will only refer to it as 'The Lite Switch'!

    For people that don't want to pay $300+ so their child can play a Switch game or two?
