Nintendo Switch Lite Discussion Thread

  • #1 ✎ 338 ProKuku Pokemon Is Awesome! I love Pokemon! Express Yourself Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself QSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source QSP Contest! A new, smaller, cheaper, handheld-only Nintendo Switch has been announced Coming Sept. 20th of This Year [url=https://youtu.be/59yuBFRSZdg]https://youtu.be/59yuBFRSZdg[/url] Announcement Video As I've been hoping ever since I saw a rumor on WSJ, Nintendo has finally announced their next device, the Nintendo Switch Lite. Since it's only $199 compared to the Switch's $299 price, this should open up the availability to a switch for quite a few people here, which I'm particularly interested in. (If I'm being honest, I wouldn't be this excited if I didn't just win a bet I made awhile back). Measurements/Comparisons Nintendo Switch: [Dimensions] 4” high, 9.4” long, .55” deep (with Joy-Con attached) [Weight] Approximately .88 lbs (with controllers attached) [Screen] 6.2" [Battery Life] Approximately 2.5 - 6.5 hours (The battery life will depend on the games you play.) [Price] $299.99 Nintendo Switch Lite: [Dimensions] 3.6” high, 8.2” long, .55” deep [Weight] Approximately .61 lbs [Screen] 5.5" [Battery Life] Approximately 3 – 7 hours (The battery life will depend on the games you play.) [Price] $199.99 New Features/Changes to the Switch Lite
    1. $100 cheaper than original Switch, being $199
    2. It's solely handheld, meaning it can't connect to a TV
    3. The Joy-con don't come off, and HD Rumble and IR motion tracking has been removed because of that
    4. IT HAS BLUETOOTH NOW
    5. Built-in Gyro sensors to make up for no IR tracking
    6. You can still connect Joy-con and other wireless controllers to the device externally
    7. Comes in Yellow, Grey, and Turquoise
    8. Only plays games compatible with handheld mode (obviously)
    Here's where I got most of my info There will also be a Pokemon Sword and Shield themed version coming Nov. 8th, one week before the games' release. The device will feature the new legendary Pokemon Zacian and Zamazenta.

Forum Contributor Hidden Achievements Avatar Embargo I didn't change my avatar for 90 days Website Hmm well I this looks like it's a good option but 199$ still is a LOT of money, and if you would like to play a game with motion controls or 1 switch multiplayer it would still just cost as much as a normal one BC. A joycon is like 50$ L/R. Posted

    botw can be played in handheld mode, and is therefore compatible with the switch lite. What I would do if I made the switch lite is make the screen smaller and do nothing else.
