    I would reconsider that purchase given how fragile the Switch analog sticks are, at least until someone's tested the thing for durability. It's easy to replace a joycon, it's much harder to replace an analog stick.

    I don't care about joycons but I will wait to see if any problems are discovered and resolved

    Because Nintendo does everything to hide the fact that they're improving security for current exploits on this model.

    For 2 hours more of portable playtime. Definitely more than security fixes.

    might as well wait for the switch pro, although this is good for people who are going to buy one

    Nice pun :lol:

    Anyway, these colour combinations are kinda ugly in my opinion.

    Why would you want them to explain the fact they're patching security flaws? You want them to explicitly state the fact that they're against hacking and piracy? That's not how businesses work.

    Weird how people were expecting a massive upgrade from this. Nintendo clearly didn't even properly market it as a "New, improved Switch!" they just quite literally swiped it under everyone's attention. I bet we will eventually get a Pro one time or another, but definetly not in the same year another revision releases.

    So, is this the 'Mariko' version I've seen people talk about?
    Will be interesting to see if hacking groups have other entry points they've been keeping up their sleeves for when this happens.....

    I would take a guess both the Lite and this new Switch model has Mariko revisions. I wouldn't be surprised if people in the hacking scene already have exploits to Mariko (or, at the very least, they have unreleased/secret exploits) and have been waiting for these revisions to be released to check if the security flaws have been patched or not

    Poorly worded article. I thought it was just half an hour extra battery life.

    It is a die shrink.
    This "new" switch has most likely the internals of the switch lite and that's it.

    I would rather, they make a New Nintendo Switch, with a better processor, GPU, and battery life, but oh well. B-)

    So this must be the rumored Switch "Pro". It might also be the same thing as the Mariko units.
    The rumors weren't completely wrong I guess. But a Switch Pro, it is not, and I don't think we're getting one either. Maybe in a few years time, when the PS5 and XBox whatever are out they will feel like they need to step up their game and come out with a Switch Pro. But I really don't think they have even started developing one yet.
    The orange looks nice, I would like a set in only that color. Purple on its own is also pretty nice.

    This is great, actually. Assuming that this will be the same price, I might now have to hold off on getting a Switch of my own for even longer to wait for these improvements.

    end me

    Pointless. I enjoy my hacked switch, I hope there’ll be a way to add a better battery in the original model for people with Homebrew because better battery is nice, but this “pro edition” is pointless.

    As others have said, it doesn't even have a new name, of course if a "pro" is coming, this isn't it. For most people, these consoles aren't for the ones that already have a Switch.
