    I care because a successfully selling console is a console that gets games.

    I hope they are not trying to get 4k when the Xbox One X barely gets to that point. The PS4 Pro can't even do a true 4k. Maybe first party games but definitely not any third.

    Unless they have some mobile DLSS tech then that would be a maybe..

    The 4K everyone is talking about is just SUPPORT, that support will translate to YouTube videos only, so that's that.

    I see, I guess that makes more sense.. but what would be the point? I don't see a reason to have 4k as a goal for only a few applications to be able to make use of it. The switch is definitely not a streaming machine compared to the shield with the only services I know on there is Hulu and Youtube.

    Bloomberg news reporting 4 new games to launch with new console let me see

    1 Botw 2 (really hope is Zelda themed)

    2 Metroid Prime 4 (they hired a crazy team of first person designers)

    3 Mario Kart 9
    4 maybe SMO 2 ??

    Nintendo has reportedly "looked into including more computing power and 4K high-definition graphics," says Bloomberg.

    switch lite has 2 modes handheld and tabletop, a switch without a screen would only have one mode out of 3.

    *what you want.
    Myself and many others enjoy the "gimmicky as fuck" features, and removing things like portability would be a massive deal breaker for many.

    Switch is no longer about Switching from Tv to Handheld it’s about Switching gaming experiences

    TV mode , Handheld ,VR , Motion Control , extc...

    Which uses the Tegra X1+, the same hardware the Switch v2 and Lite use. It's one thing to output at 4k for something like video (which even the original TX1 could do at 60fps), but it's another for games.

    I bet you that there is no 3rd party supporting Upgrade Nintendo Switch via PS5 and XBOX new games at all because it is not powerful anyway.

    I believe that there might be more ports from most PS4 and perhaps PS4 pro games to upgraded Nintendo Switch.

    I might buy it if many PS4 games I have are available on upgraded NWS then I will sell this old Nintendo Switch but wait and see. For now, I am going to focus on PS5, thought.

    why on earth do you think switch 1.5 will get ps4 pro games upgraded? lol are you expecting switch 1.5 or even switch 2 will play 4k 50 gb games better than ps4 pro/xbox with an handheld tablet? seriously people have stupid espectation really, how much would it cost to have a switch console that would be thin as hell and play 4k games better than current gen 1.5 console all on a tiny tablet? 1000$ components probably...

    seriously even switch v2 wont play 4k 30 fps for sure unless its like a sprite game that doesnt push hardware, nintendo wont make a console cost as much as 1000$ phone or they would go bankrupt very easily.

    These rumours came every year and were fake.
    I hope its true this year but I wasted almost 4 years of my life I could have enjoyed with a switch because of the bullshit rumours from "sources" published by "reputable" news.

    OLED please!
    The blue light from the backlighting in LCDs is very very unhealthy...
    I work in IT and used to suffer from headaches and general eye strain all the time before I figured this out.
    Phones, tablets and portable gaming devices are used very upclose, and often at night, OLED screens should be nonnegotiable!

    Nintendo is nothing if not consistent. It's common for them to release a more powered version rather than a new generation. Usually comes, what? 3-4 years after initial release? So this is right in line and makes perfect sense, especially with increased pressure from xbox and sony to have a console that can at least have somewhat support 3rd party releases across all platforms.
