My Switch sees almost no use, but I would definitely buy a Vita 2.0 that plays:
- FFXII
-a new Platinum Character Action game
-SMT
-Animal Crossing
-Fire Emblem

:idont

:thinking
The regular switch is really big and has a really, really low battery life.

I can't really commit to any Switch games knowing that I can't play it away from a television screen for more than a couple hours without needing a full charge.

Would love to play Chocobo Mystery Dungeon, but I can't imagine sitting in front of a giant bigscreen for it.

A $20 external battery backup will get you enough to run for like 10+ hours

I am kinda surprised the battery life isn't at least double with a smaller lower-power (handheld only mode) hardware coming 2 years later in tech advances.

Only had my switch run out of battery on flights/trains but yeah would be nice if that didn't happen.

No tv out? Lol fuck that, what a bunch of cheap assholes. The OG PSP has a fucking tv out, and thatís without a library of games built for multiplayer and a tv.

The OG PSP did not have TV out- the PSP 2000 series introduced that.
:expert

And yet the Vita didn't have TV-out either.

Or you could just plug it in...?  Where do you guys play this thing where there's no AC outlets anywhere to use?

The battery in the Mini is smaller than the O.G. model.   That's also a good question- do the joycons affect battery life that much?  They have their own batteries.  I guess the wireless connection to the Switch?  :thinking 

I'm seeing cooling vents; does it have a fan?

The O.G. Switch has cooling vents too.   Assuming it's the same fan or fans?

It feels/works nicely, but note that it has no rumble or any kind of wireless features, so you have to use it attached to the Switch- won't work if you want to use your joycons like a stand-alone controller. 

IIRC people complained that it drained the Switch battery faster, but I think this may have been fixed for the U.S. release?  I haven't really used mine much because of the modded d-pad joycons I have.

Oh, I thought this thing had a better battery life but there's just a 30 min difference  :lol

Might just buy a battery extender as kingv said, though a smaller system & d-pad would be more comfortable I don't think it would be worth the price.

Thjs makes sense, especially if you're buying it for your kids that keep bumping it into shit or lose joycons left and right.
199$ for half the functionality is still too much for me though (especially since Mario Odyssey is the only game out, i'm interested in).

Think the 3DS was like 220 euros over here when it launched. Got a price cut pretty fast though.

Early adopters got like 10 free GBA and 10 NES games for the ammount they were fucked over.

Here are the US launch prices for major handhelds.

Game Boy: $89.99
Game Boy Color: $69.99
Game Boy Advance : $99.99
Nintendo DS: $149.99
Nintendo 3DS: $249.99

And:

PlayStation Portable: $249.99
PlayStation VITA: $249.99

So going over $200 is pretty much the graveyard for handheld mass appeal. Even the OG 3DS at $180 was pushing it pretty high for what is essentially a kids' system.

With regards t210b01's improvements, higher clocks and lower voltages suggest a drop from a 20nm processor design down to 16nm FinFET instead - but Tegra X1 was always an outlier, a production chip running on an experimental fabrication process Nvidia never chose to pursue for its mainstream GPUs - and I wonder if the firm is following the same procedure with its replacement, mitigating the cost of exploring 7nm technology by sharing costs with Nintendo. Only a teardown of the new Switch revision(s) will give us the physical dimensions that allow us to firmly identify how the t210b01/t214 is manufactured, but the increase in clocks seen in the DVFS tables would likely favour 16nmFF, a mature process and a good fit for a mass-produced console.

20nm -> 16nm

It's just a brand name...? And it's a hell of a lot better than "3DS" and "Wii U." IMO their naming is back on track after like 15 years of misses and near-misses.

Better "Switch Lite" than "Nintendo 2DS XXLi New Edition."

The thing plays Switch games, it's a Switch.

This also still supports table top mode (split screen and multiple controllers) just without a kickstand.

This goes back to when the Switch was announced and everyone here was hella skeptical, cause it seems like people just couldn't fathom something like the Switch Lite existing. Meanwhile people who knew Nintendo's game plan (which should honestly be everyone, because they keep doing it so much it's basically gaming history) knew that this was coming.

Want a Switch Mini.

Integrated, non-detachable Joycons, maybe clamshell design?

Smaller form factor (~4.5" screen.)

No dock in the package.

$149.

My only problem with the 2DS is the weird ergonomics of the triggers and the "door-stop" thickness. If they actually fixed that, it'd be fine. I like mine, but the hand-cramps are pretty bad.

199$ for half the functionality is still too much for me though (especially since Mario Odyssey is the only game out, i'm interested in).

The Lite is also going to appeal to a lot of people in Japan who are on trains for long periods of time every day- have even seen a few 'industry types' saying this is what it was made for- I don't think Nintendo is that stupid that they'd make new hardware for just one country anymore, but that's just me I guess.

I thought "3DS" was good- it's the DS successor, made in the same design style, still plays DS games, and is 3D.  Makes sense.  "2DS" is where it gets confusing- it's obvious why they called it that...but it also makes it sound like a previous generation of the console, lol.

I see a lot of similarities to the 2DS with the Switch Lite-- despite the 2DS being a clear downgrade over the original and designed to be cheaper for kids, there were still people foaming at the mouth over it and saying it was better than the 3DS models at the time because it was more comfortable.  Never mind that it didn't close or had a mono speaker and no 3D. 

On Twitter I've seen some "STOP TELLING PEOPLE THAT U DON'T LIKE THE SWITCH LITE DESIGN IT'S NOT MADE 4 U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" stan-defense posts with way too many likes.  "DON'T CRITICIZE PRODUCT!!!!!!!"   :gun :punch

I guess that's an issue? Do you mean how close they are together or just that it's not the Dual Shock config?

Just be thankful it's not Wii U config (symmetrical, but displacing the fucking buttons??)

I'm 99% docked using the Pro Controller, so the small size of the JoyCons/Switch Lite isn't an issue.

Nintendo stuff (games especially) holds it value far better than Sony or MS stuff.

I usually buy Nintendo games day 1, because thereís not much point in waiting 3 months. Wait 3-6 months on basically any game on PlayStation/Xbox and you can get it for half price somewhere.

Pre-owner breath of the wild is still like $40 on eBay. And it was a launch game.

I'm positive that lack of TV out is a thermal thing. They can build it smaller/cheaper if they know they never have to clock it up to the Docked resolution.

You don't want to see portable mode resolution running on a TV.

I'm positive that lack of TV out is a thermal thing. They can build it smaller/cheaper if they know they never have to clock it up to the Docked resolution.

You don't want to see portable mode resolution running on a TV.

Even though they're already on a smaller process?

It being cheaper to builb with a lesser cooling function makes sense though.

My choice of words were incorrect.  It's their advertising, not marketing. Their ad splash screens could've been thought out allot better.  I guess it'll never sit right with me, because it drives me nuts.

Let me know when the screen-less N-Slab is out so I can play Merry-o Brothers Odyssey some day.

Even Andy-kun is out here not defending the fuck-tarded thumbstick placements.

Andy-kun not an alien, confirmed.

I guess that's an issue? Do you mean how close they are together or just that it's not the Dual Shock config?

Just be thankful it's not Wii U config (symmetrical, but displacing the fucking buttons??)

I'm 99% docked using the Pro Controller, so the small size of the JoyCons/Switch Lite isn't an issue.

You defended them doing this at the time.

Next up, Switch XL, with no handheld mode and a mild overclock.

Good Nintendo getting more of that Japanese market. Also the first Nintendo handheld since gba micro that doesnít have a clam shell. Rip to clam shell handhelds. :( The DS is truly over and now I weep.

No tv out? Lol fuck that, what a bunch of cheap assholes. The OG PSP has a fucking tv out, and thatís without a library of games built for multiplayer and a tv.

The OG PSP did not have TV out- the PSP 2000 series introduced that.
:expert

And yet the Vita didn't have TV-out either.

Actually, the first model of Vita did have TV out capability. Sony just never released the necessary cable and enabled it.

If I did I don't remember, I was more OK with the Wii Pro Controller (aka Dual Shock) config and IIRC I said so at the time... if I praised the Pro Controller, it was about ergonomics and battery life, which are still fairly best in class (80 hours!)
