    How important is the TV mode to you?

      I always wanted a Nintendo Switch; not for the TV mode but for the handheld mode. I seriously NEED a handheld console, but I could only gather $270 (a Switch costs $300). Now, I could finally by my dream handheld console, and have money to spare.

      The reason I don't need TV mode is because I have my Xbox. I could play split-screen multiplayer on that as well. I just needed a personal handheld device I could play anywhere for hours.

        These will be great for me when the Switch is almost dead and a new Nintendo console is coming out. I can have this to keep the old games alive!

                  I love the color and design but I already own a switch with digital games on it. Like 20-30gb size...

                          Do you have to have the main switch console to play games? Where do the games store when you play them on this?

                            This thing is too big,...and that color makes it look like a 2 year old's toy! I think I'll just stick with my old Gameboy Micro :-)

                              Wait. So if it has a type-c, can't you get a usb type c to hdmi adapter and play on the tv????

                              why say $199 when it's really $200... why round down .99 ?
                              it's not a relevant difference, but why make the extra step of going with this marketing scheme and vocalizing the longer and less correct price of 199 instead of just simply saying 200?

                                    Its not a Switch if it doesnt connect to the TV. Then there is the ridiculous $200 price tag

                                      Sorry but no. The main reason i bought a Switch was to play with my friend in school by removing the joy-cons. You can't do that with a Switch lite

                                        It isn't only the fact that you cannot play on TV mode with the Lite version, is the fact that you cannot detach and share one joy-con with a friend on table top mode!

                                          @Daniel Vladic I'm just pointing out that you can still play with your buddies if you really want to... if you don't like the lite, just get the normal one. its very simple :D good luck

                                          @Alin N. Yes, it's true! But who's going through the life with a joycon in the pocket ever?

                                          other people can join on your game, they just need their own joycon. Like if they are sitting next to you they can join you on your screen.

                                            A home console that's a handheld, but not a handheld, because it's a home console that goes with you, and now a handheld that's not a handheld, because it's a home console, just not able to play on a television. Nintendo's so screwy this generation!

                                                      The most amazing thing about the switch lite is actually the fact that something so small.... Can play witcher 3.

                                                      Nintendo could not even release this and they'd still be absolutely killing it. The Switch is by far the best console of this generation, and I have them all. =)

                                                          This is less like the Gameboy to the concept of the a console but more like the 2DS to the 3DS imo. Still looks nice tho ig, if the price is much lower this is probably going to be a good move to get switches into more people’s homes
