    Switch Room or Switch Box would be quite the name for a TV-Only Switch now that I think about it! XD

    Not buying another Switch until I see a model with significantly improved specs - the Lite just wasn't for me and an improvement in TDP/battery life is not enough to convince me to switch (ha!) from my Day 1 daily driver to a new console. If it is a Switch Pro of some kind, it will be a perfect secondary system, but other than that my 2020 wishlist is still dominated by the PS5 and the Series X.

    Yeah, a half an hour of play time more wasn't doing it for me either. I did trade in my PS4 Slim that I wasn't playing at the time for the Red Switch...to use as my clean Switch because I probably couldn't solder for shit to hack it!

    That's been the Switch's primary appeal from the beginning, at least for me. Definitely willing to trade up if it means more power and better battery life, but I agree that improved battery life on its own wasn't a big enough selling point to bother with the red box model.

    I'm console-agnostic, although not through choice. I gotta have my Halo, I gotta have my Uncharted and The Last of Us and I gotta have my Fire Emblem and Metroid, but since the Holy Book of Console Wars dictates that good hardware doesn't matter as long as everyone rolls out anti-consumer exclusives, I can't have it all in one convenient package. On the bright side I collect the damn things anyway, so I suppose it doesn't really matter in the long run. :P

    Well, Microsoft seems to be sharing with Nintendo more, if that makes you feel any better.

    I think they gonna do sth like Wii U with external controller using current Switch. Maybe for now they cannibalises old tittles from Wii U grave not spend money for new console - if true I am not really fan of the idea, since most of their tittles I play last gen. But also if next year i look for next gen upgrade I rather by from M$ or $ony not Nintendo. Hmm... One thing interests me about N, if their drveloping new box do they try make VR set that contain materials that we cound not find as replacement in our dumpster!?

    Look ninty. Give the switch thunderbolt 3 and put a gpu inside the dock (plenty of space for that). Bam. Switch Pro with so much potential, yet everything being still perfectly compatible.

    Im glad I didn't jump the gun to buy current new models. Im guessing the 2020 models will be around when PS5/and X Series are out

    I am curious to see this new version of switch. Hopefully, they will improve the original model more seriously this time.
    I expect more power, less bezel, higher resolution, and less bulky. A switch model decent compared to the forthcoming generation.

    I've got a hard time imagining a simple hardware update. That's not Nintendo like and the New 3DS upgrade proved to be almost useless (only 3 games using it).

    If there is a Switch Pro, I think it will improve one (or several) of the features. Like au better screen or those foldable joy cons we've seen a few mounths ago.

    I can see a XL model as stupid as it might seem. A tablet the size of an I Pad would find it's public whatever gamers can think about that. Or maybe a lighter model with borderless screen.

    Nintendo has to do it. The Ps5 and Xsex box will be rough competition.

    Nintendo don't really compete with Sony or Microsoft - most people will buy the next nintendo machine as we all kno just for ther first party with either playstn or xbox - they've prob lost some sales but not enough to just go just producing games
