    Would rather go the way of creating a Switch-lite that draws more appeal from the handheld community while still being part of the Switch ecosystem. I know I'd like a smaller version of the console to play it.

    I want the value of the Switch to flop so I can buy it easily. So yeah, I'm all in for this idea, honestly. I never understood the desire to buy something while it's still "trending".

    The only way I can see that working is if they basically use modified internals of a Switch to create a smaller clamshell console that only outputs 480p and doesn't dock, but still plays all the same games at a lower resolution

    I guess the Switch isn't good enough :rolleyes: Just what we need, yet another handheld to divert good games from a console.

    Good. The Gameboy, DS, and 3DS lines of products have always been extremely successful because of great third party titles and relatively inexpensive hardware.

    I love my Switch, but carrying it around is much more of an ordeal then carrying my GBA SP or N3DS. It they can make it work, go for it!

    Stupidest idea from nintendo since the Wii u if it is what people are assuming it will be, a successor to the 3DS that means games specifically developed for said console, which would divide the userbase in 2, why nintendo isn't fully commiting to the switch is beyond me, the console has had the best momentum of any console ever developed, as well as the ability to be used in handheld mode, the best course of action nintendo should take is make a smaller switch that is handheld only, alot more power efficient (probably reduce screen size and resolution for longer battery life) and is a part of a bigger family of switch "systems".
