    How much you wanna bet the joycon drift ain't gonna be fixed at all in this "pro" model?
    Since, their words, the problem doesn't exist/doesn't affect anyone.

    Y'know, this is something I've felt like I wanted to happen for quite a while, but looking at my Switch library now, I'm not sure how much benefit there would really be to it. Astral Chain is the one title which I feel desperately needs a bump to 60 FPS, but everything else is either already at 60 FPS, or not action-based so it doesn't matter much. Other than indies I don't buy any third-party games on Switch, either.

    I suppose people who use Switch as their primary gaming console stand to benefit most from this, along with people who intend to hack it. For my part I'll just have to wait and see if any of the trade-in deals for my OG Switch are enticing.

    Riley fails at pronouncing 'SciresM' in LMG's TechLinked report on this rumor article (4:29).

    Iv got the deja vu feeling . Anyone ? Im sticking with my idea of a super switch and super dock , you could even add hdmi to switch lite , then you got a new console retrocompatible .

    Pro? 4K?

    The Switch isn't even capable of running flawlessly at 1080p. Mario Odyssey only runs at 900p.

    I'll be leaning to a PS4 to PS5 kind of game upgrade (not in terms of power), where the devs can provide a graphics/performance update for this, and not trample on the OG Switch.

    Oh boy more patches!

    It'll be hard to preserve modern games since they rely so heavily on patches, updates and downloadable content (the easiest of the three).

    I personally believe that is going to be some sort of new dock and maybe a cheaper screen to compensate the 4k for tv mode,maybe with an option to use it on the original version as well

    Well it's a good thing I waited to buy one (mostly because I'm broke....).

    The odd thing about Nintendo saying that drift "isn't a thing" is that around a year ago they said they'll repair Joy-Cons for free. And this was also when the Joy-Con drift lawsuit began I believe, which makes Nintendo recent statement on Joy-Con drift even weirder and quite contradictory.

    About Joy-Con drift not being fixed on the Switch Pro, Nintendo could update the sticks themselves to be better overall, but hey who knows.

    Considering the console as it is, is at its best when it's docked...it is a Switch upgrade, in my eyes.
    The most recent true handheld is the 3DS XL, honestly; the Switch is a home console with portability on the side. It's capable of it, but clearly doesn't focus on it.

    Anyway, this is nice, but I likely won't be buying one until I can run homebrew on it - I rely on Checkpoint and EdiZon SE too much for OFW-only to be worth the money.

    Ever since i saw the specs around the time the switch was revealed, i immediately said "i'll wait for the better one"
    The first version of most nintendo consoles are always the least desirable ones to have as time goes on.

    4K's overrated; 1080p's just fine, especially if the system can focus on frame rate instead of meaningless pixel depth.

    Imagine Xenoblade Chronicles 2 with raytracing. That'd be gorgeous AND fun to play!
    Or Luigi's Mansion 3; that'd be stellar, too.

    Yes... we need raytracing in Xenoblade 2.... for reasons not at all connected with Pneuma

    Dock upgrade with Realtek chip AI upscaling for 4k maybe. I hope it will look good though. Also, maybe that chip will improve the FPS in games, that would also be interesting to see.

    I've been thinking this same thing. How hard would it be to take the Switch architecture and put it into a dock-sized console with newer tech and backwards compatibility with switch cartridges and software?
