    This is the console for me because I have a regular switch but I rarely use it in docked mode when I play it’s usually in hand-held mode and I didn’t like the joycons that much to begin with and I don’t mind not having the HD rumble plus the regular switch it’s kinda heavy and bulky so the lite would be ideal for my gaming experience

      I’m getting it because I like the colours, my brother already owns a regular switch so there’s no point getting another one, and also, when I do play on my brothers switch I play it handheld anyway, and also it’s cheaper and I can still play the vast majority of games, this is perfect for me

        it pointless to buy in the UK its only £79 cheaper and for something that does not connect to a TV you might as well just new version on the standard switch that has better battery life than this lite

          Just leave it to Nintendo to create models of their systems that undermine the core concept of that very system.
          The 2DS: A 3DS without the 3D!
          The Switch Lite: A hybrid console minus the hybrid!

            Robin Mattheussen switch is now a brand name, it isn’t just a singular literal console name anymore

          I think this is a very good solution for families to able to afford a extra one for their kids or buy it for someone they care. The whole family can play together. Is cheap. This way a lot more people can afford to buy it. Nintendo want as many people as possible to own a switch and able to play their games. They make money from the games. The light version is very attractive for new owners who only want to play portable and can save money. Especially it has a longer battery life and the joy con is not detachable. Which is great, because detachable joy cons just break way too easy and is expensive to replace them.

           I am sure this move of Nintendo would really able to reach more of the audience out there who doesn't have a big income. They don't even have to buy the big games. The owners can play free games like Fortnite,War Frame or there is nintendo online etc. There are tons of cheap games in the e-shop. The whole purpose of Nintendo releasing this version is to attract more people to play the games using their consoles.

          For me, i will still buy it even if i have a switch already. I think there are owners out there that always want to have a extra one as a backup and a cheaper version in case something happen with the expensive one. Is like having a extra life.

            Strange color choices. Were they the cheapest for Nintendo to produce?

                I don't own a switch.

                i don't care about tv mode.

                my friends are far away.

                so this is just fine for me. like all the stuff that's "missing" doesn't matter to me.

                  There's an argument going around i feel is really stupid people say this is a dumb idea because it doesn't dock to the tv THAT'S NOT THE FOCUS OF THE CONSOLE! That's the thing that drives me up the wall and with the lite it's less things to carry around I want one just to carry on the go

                            Omg I'm so happy!!! I couldnt buy the normal switch as I cant afford it so seeing this news made me so happy! I think I am going to buy the yellow colour! Of course it depends on the price as I cant afford near the 200 :(. I really want to play fire emblem three houses with it!!

                              I’ve known this was coming since the switch came out. I’m so exited! I already preordered it! It’s my dream console

                                The appealing thing to this for me is the weight, it's significantly lighter than the switch, the 3ds xl, etc while having no downgrades. The fatigue from holding the standard Switch is quite large. Battery life is a big bonus.

                                    i think its a great idea alot of people have a ps4 or xbox to play on there tv and dont want to put out the money for a switch this is a cheaper option for them

                                        Its hdmi port to tvs...smaller screen...smaller battery...What sucks the most, ironically, is that for "an 8th gen" video game contraption, the normal switch is barely on par with something form the PS3 era. Look up its specs... BUt companies always do this before doing it right in the next gen. MONEY MONEY MONEY MOOooOOONEY...>,;,<

                                                Th cheaper price would b the appealing thing. I would just get a regular one if they end up being the same price.

                                                  This is great! As long as the screen is not too small I’m down as long as it’s not the same price

                                                    I'm sold on the Switch Lite if Nintendo comes out with a Legend of Zelda edition.

                                                    I'm a little worried that this is going to cause customer confusion due to not all Switch games being compatible with it.

                                                    Anyways, the full-on Switch is the one for me. Nice to see lots of comments from people who are excited to get the Lite, though.

                                                            The current switch is backpack portable, but far from pocket portable. I'll need to see the lite in person of course, but I'm skeptical that it will improve pocket-ability to a useful degree. Without a clam shell, the analogue sticks seem destined to snag often.

So it would be really nice to only spend $200 as opposed to spending an extra $100 for something I would never use. And to have a handheld I can take anywhere of course

With the Switch in portable mode, it dumbs down the system so you’re not killing the battery in an hour. Hence 720p resolution. When it’s dock, it goes all out on power because it’s basically connected to the wall outlet. Thus being able to produce 1080p. So that’s why it won’t be dockable.

One of the big draw backs of the Switch are the dizzying array of extras. Get a bigger microSD storage, a pro controller, additional joy cons, joy con chargers, etc.

                                                                        The Switch Lite pretty much takes that headache away by providing a decent control setup.

I literally just want a console to plug into the tv, and the controllers can carry on being like wiimotes if they have to. I'm too old for a portable device for regular use these days- for maybe 2 weeks of holiday a year is fine, but the neck ache and hand-cramps I got using the 3DS were awful. This looks to be worse!
