    This isn't for me. Holding out for Switch Pro, or maybe just a different bundle where it has a Pro controller in the box but no Joycons, for the same price as a regular Switch. No intention of ever going handheld with it.

    Plus handheld mode have game graphics downgraded all the time...

    The Lite will likely sell a lot of units this holiday season with Pokemon releasing. The main market will be families/people that had a 3ds and have not bought a switch yet due to price and/or wanting to stick with handhelds. Not really interested myself but if they did a Zelda themed one for Link's Awakening I might cave. I'm waiting for the rumoured pro model next year myself.

    That looks pretty nice, but I already have a switch, and don't use it undocked, so no real point in me buying it

    It took me 3 seconds to find a site that sell them. (expensive tho)
    Not just the backplate though, the buttons and thumbsticks as well, they look dope as helllll

    The same will apply to the Switch Lites as well.

    If I'm still working at this company in a year, I feel this is going to be a pain in my ass.
    My son had a switch for a long time and he played the shit out of Fortnite on it for months and we never saw any issues with the JoyCons aside from them not attaching to the screen very securely. I say had, because he ended up cracking the screen so bad you can't see it anymore, and the dock hasn't worked in months so...it's a brick righ now. Figuring out what to do with it, but I'll likely wait a bit and pay the ~$115 total repair fee myself (rather than waiting for my son to pay for it, because he's 11 and that would take a LONG time) and take it for myself.

    Likely just means they found cheaper solutions and will make a larger profit on the base system with those changes. Possibly a memory increase and possibly better battery life if they shrunk the tegra but highly doubtful of any real performance increases or Nintendo wouldn't be trying to stealth it out to release saying they only have 1 new model.

    It is a minor revision. Most likely just cheaper/newer parts of cheaper production. At the very best there could be some battery life gains if the new chip uses less power than the current model.

    Switch seems to have a digital summer sale it seems. Looking at games right now:
    Katamari damacy reroll 14 euro (30%)
    Valkyria c 4 30 euro (50%)
    Everspace 28 euro (30%)
    Steins gate 30 euro (50%)
    Shining resorance refrain 25 euro (50%)
    Dragonball fighter z ultimate edition 60 euro (42%)
    Octopath traveler 40 euro (33%)
    ...and more

    But seems kinda pointless due to so many games coming out soon.

    For those who haven't played Steins;Gate yet, that game is spectacular.

    edited: as mentioned below, Switch port may be subpar, might want to try it on PC instead, amazing game though.

    Elite version is ass and butchers the original art with the trash anime style. Also has loads of missing scenes. Hard to recommend it when you can get the original version for much cheaper on PC/Vita/PS4/PS3.

    But on a slightly happier note Robotics;Notes Elite does not suffer from this same fate and is actually the definitive version of the game and that will be out in the west early next year on Switch(and other platforms).

    Ah, didn't realize the Switch port was poor. Yeah, get it on PC.

    I don't think the anime style is that bad, but the original art style definitely has a stronger pull I'd say.

    Especially comparing Steins;Gate 0 Okabe to S;G0 Anime Okabe. One looks far, far more depressed (The VN one of course)

    Missing scenes is awful though.

    I don't think the anime style is that bad for the actual anime. But for a VN it's pretty damn bad when it just pauses and leaves you at a bland looking anime scene while you read/listen. No nice back grounds, no animated portraits etc. It was a terrible idea to try and make the anime into the VN, it just doesn't mix.

    I was happy to pick up Paw Patrol: On a Roll for my kids at a 40 % discount. I'm really surprised and and positive about the sales. They come often and for a wide variety of games.
