This presentation was awful, and I am not talking about the way the guy spoke or about the Lite itself, but the way they presented it. So it's designed for handheld, that's fine, but tell us how it was made for handheld and why I should pick that instead of a regular Switch. Tell me what features it has that a regular Switch doesn't. Maybe it has a better screen that you can play in direct sunlight(don't know how a regular switch handles that, don't own one), maybe it has a better battery that lasts longer, maybe they made it compatible with the 3ds or some shit, or maybe it has a lower price entry like the 2DS. Focus on what it has, not on what it doesn't. Through out this presentation, all he said was that it was designed for handheld mode, and then lists all the things it lacked from a standard Switch, it made it look inferior, like a cheap chinese clone, instead of a separate member in the Switch family. Whoever wrote that script should be fired.

Because my main complaint was that the original Switch is 2big to work as a handheld (the main unit alone, without joycons, is slightly bigger than my Vita) and they fixed the lack of d-pad. Not being able to connect on the TV, even with a different dock, is gay tho. It's the Vita/PSTV shit all over again (the PSP 3000 had video outputs in comparison) except Nintendo is smarter in general to not abandon its hardware on a whim.

Now the system needs to step up in order to get a more interesting library than just lmao indies and ports while the PS4 still get interesting and mostly temporary exclusives. Likewise I'd wait for the Switch Lite to get cracked with the hope that the lgbt fags and the biggest fanboys have stopped shitting up the homebrew scene by then.

Speak for yourself. But also, some games use motion controls, and when playing docked, using the controller shell is much nicer than the shit ergonomics of the Switch and this model does not address that either.

>can probably still be done down the line

It will probably get new hacks. But RCM is an exploit on par with ntrboot, and extremely desirable to have. You can actually fix BSoD bricks on 3DS with ntrboot.


What's disgusting about the Vita is it doesn't even need a dedicated video out. It can output the video through the USB port as basically a DirectShow or V4L2 device, while the audio can be captured with a 3.5mm audio connector. It's actually shocking how well it works and it's not even an official feature! This is through a taiHEN plug-in. Relatedly there's one to make the screenshot function do clean lossless PNG instead of garbage watermarked JPEG.

The PSTV comparison is more correct, as it traded away portability and also halved a good chunk of the native Vita library in terms of compatibility (certain jap games like Catherine FullBody and Gravity Rush wouldnt work by default until you use a whitelist on a hacked model). With the Switch Lite it's the same, you have to take account from behind the box art if the game is compatible on handheld mode otherwise you're fucked. At least the 2DS iteration would let play all the games that were made for its 3DS counterpart.

The form factor of the Switch Lite please me as a man who lives alone most of the time, but I still expected some TV output that would have been appreciated during family/friends visits.

Do those games even exist? And what's the point of connecting controllers if it doesn't have a kickstand? Sounds like they're only advertising that as a feature because it's a core part of the OS that they can't remove.

The Wii U and Switch's screen size is 6.2 inches while the Switch Lite's listed as 5.5. Granted, the biggest difference between Switch and Wii U's Gamepad is the resolution bump from 480p to 720.

It will happen inevitably for the future games, not just the currently released ones, since you get to sacrifice higher clock speeds possible in docked mode for one reason. The question will be whether those who are incompatible will be worth a damn but that's a gamble for now.

The lack of 3D does hurt a few parts of games that require it, but nowhere to the degree the PSTV does.


You can connect external controllers apparently, and presumably use those in lieu of the built-in ones, but that's some grade-A redundancy.


There are some moves in SMO that can only be done with motion controls.


A handheld system should fit in your pocket. Switch barely does with the joycons detached. Also it's not a question of screen size but what is done with it, and I think by allowing docking that some developers may not consider how it looks outside of that.

Why the fuck would they ditch being able to hook it up to your TV? Getting rid of useless shit like HD rumble and motion controls to lower the price and make it smaller is a good idea but fuck it if it can't also be used as a console.

54c46e  No.16681633


>What the fuck would you see on a 3 inch screen?

A lot more, surprisingly. Games on small screen (and small resolution) systems will increase the size of text, UI, etc to fit the screen. Wii U and Switch have games made for big screens, so the UI is smaller to look good on your 50 inch screen. When you take the Switch in handheld mode, or look at the Wii U gamepad, it's the same exact scale of UI. Some Switch games have a bigger UI for handheld mode, but not all.


>a slightly smaller Switch that has no point over just getting a normal one

It's more comfortable with less weight, and it's $100 cheaper. The target market is parents buying their kids Pokemon for Christmas, it's a lot more attractive with less moving parts and a lower price tag.


Why couldn't they update the dock to be smaller, have an integrated ethernet port, and keep compatibility with all future Switch models?


The Lite is selling to kids for Pokemon/Animal Crossing, while the Pro is selling for BotW2. Just like how N3DS was selling Smash 4 and MH4U, while 2DS was selling Pokemon and Mario Kart.

Which they can pick and choose what goes in and out. There's probably no data, audio, or video modes for that port, just charging. Docked mode demands higher power delivery, too, and those modes might just not be supported.

The pro (which I believe will just iron out fps/resolution instead of be a half-upgrade) will probably come in late 2020 before BotW2 delayed to Summer 21 and Prime 4. Hopefully the next console will just be Switch 2 and have back compat with controllers (just like Wii U).


The slowdown was painful but the graphics while docked were never bad enough to complain. Guess my eyes only see in 480p or something.


Most of those features are only cool when they're actually used in games. Much like the analog buttons of the DS2/3 or the Dreamcast's VMU.

Moms all over are going to buy Pokemon and Switch Lite for their kids this Christmas. Switch Lite is designed to be a kid's Christmas present. That's the target market. The commercial only has teens and older playing because Nintendo is scared of having a kiddie image because 20+ is a huge market for Switch.

Switch Lite isn't for /v/, it's for parents who don't want to spend $300 on a kid's toy that has detachable controllers and can be used to clog up the TV.

It should be smaller, and it should come in at $150. But I have no doubt that in 6 months it'll drop to $150, Nintendo is just going to gouge for the holiday sales. I think it's a terrible idea to buy one, I'd never get one.

Pretty sure Nintendo never started selling Switches without the dock? That's the market they want. Just an even cheaper version of the same product.

Except maybe just making you buy joycons too at some point.

The dock is also a comfy charging station if you can't hook it up to the TV. Also there's that charging dock you can use for tabletop mode that gives you more angles than the stand. Why does the Switch lite even have bluetooth for tabletop built in if you can't dock it? It's just a drain on the…

Oh… To transfer Pokemon from Go/Home to Let's Go/Sword and Shield directly. Only reason bluetooth exists. Also with no dock you get no support for wired controllers nor Gamecube Adapter for Smash Bros.

>Fuck yes does this mean the motion controls gimmick is finally dead.

It probably doesn't. Splatoon 2 can use motion controls in handheld mode. Also, it's the superior control scheme for both Splatoon 1 and 2. It's effectively the closest thing to keyboard and mouse. Seriously. Don't be so eager to bash it. The technology is way better than it was with the Wii. I just don't see the point of it for any game that isn't a shooter.

a730d4  No.16681793


Most people decided to hate all forms of motion after playing a few launch window Wii games. They have no idea what they're talking about.

a45904  No.16681800


The problem with Wii motion controls were that motion control was new and no one knew how to make the most of them, and it was a new gimmick which was abused. Motion control is great when it's used to compliment and improve traditional controls. But with Wii, you had games being created that revolved entirely around the motion control, to the point a lot of them were not even playable without motion controls.

Look at motion controls in BotW compared to Skywad Sword. BotW uses motion controls to fine tune aiming bows and stuff. Skywad Sword had you using motion controls to swing the fucking sword. BotW motion controls are great, Skywad Sword is shit and most people want to turn it off. Because it doesn't improve the experience. Who wants to flail their arms around to swing a sword when you can press a button instead? And then you die from the time it takes you to swing the controller around and do a full arm motion when you could have just pressed a button and lived. Who the fuck wants that? It's no wonder there's a ton of people who hate motion controls, they have every right to if the only motion controls they're familiar with are Wii era ones.

a730d4  No.16681802


I had fun with Skyward Sword. It's a one game gimmick though. You don't want the entire series to go that way, anymore than you want the entire series to become about sailing.

You don't have to flail your arms around, by the way. Flicks of the wrist generally suffice for anything. Another thing that people who can't stand motion never seem to get.

Unironicly this

b720db  No.16681810


Holy shit, you're such a redditor. Sage is not a downvote. :^) Still the point is that the Switch Lite can benefit from having a USB C port to be compatible with it's own dock for both charging and hooking up to the TV. If it has at least two USB ports it can use a Gamecube adapter for Smash Bros. Or if it doesn't have USB ports at all then the dock is still useful as a charge while you play station on the TV. Also there's potential in the idea of kids having fun swapping their Switches for asymmetric multiplayer games depending on who has their Switch docked and who doesn't like Pac Man Vs. on Namco Museum.

I get it. Most kids are retarded zoomers that don't care about playing games on the TV. They don't even have PCs. They just have smart phones. That's the market Nintendo is going for with Switch lite. No dock, no problem, because no zoomer plays games for more than 3 hours a day at most anyway when they aren't shitposting.

a45904  No.16681812


Well that's another thing with motion controls. It's really hard to fuck up pressing a button, but you could easily end up flailing your arms around if you don't know what you're doing. I've seen people try and play Splatoon 2 with motion controls and they've done some crazy things, twisting their wrists all over and making huge movements with their arms. I think motion controls are just very easy to use wrong and easy for people to hate. I personally like them to some extent and I think it's a big help.

As another anon said, motion controls are awesome for things like Splatoon, really great for camera controls too. It's not a mouse and keyboard but it helps bring it a lot closer when it comes to aiming.

a730d4  No.16681824


Generally, trying to recreate the feel of a mouse is the thing motion is best for. Analogue sticks still do that horribly.

They will, but they are probably looking at 3DS sales and looking at how the more expensive and better performing (XL, New 3DS) models sold compared to 2DS and are putting the cheaper version as a priority. They probably look at how well xXXB0N31XxX and PS4 xXProfessional GaymerxX sold compared to the cheap shitty versions (like Xboned by Slim cock) and realizing there's more money with a cheaper console because there's more poor people who rather spend $200 on a shitty Switch than $400 on a nicer Switch.

Why is that a good thing? The old one was a hybrid that could be exactly as much of a handheld as this one can, but also be a TV console. You fuse the joy cons to the system and don't allow connecting it to a TV and it's somehow improved by taking things off?

For saving that much money I can get anywhere from 4-11 physical copies of games to actually play on the thing.


Hybrids are shit. If you want to play on the gay piece of shit that is the original Switch be my guest.

>exactly as much of a handheld as this one can

This one is smaller; it looks like it should be able to fit in my pocket which is what I consider the cut-off to be for a dedicated handheld.

Its also far cheaper.

You can go market your "hybrid" to some retard who will buy it. Its not my thing.

This thing is at 8.96" diagonal, where the original is at a 10.22" diagonal. It's still pretty large. The PS Vita is 7.92" and is still too big to fit comfortably in most pockets.

You can also take the joy cons off the original and it's a 7.89 inch diagonal.

It's still not a pocket-ready machine. It's something you need to stow in a bag. I had a 7-inch phone and the fucking thing was uncomfortable in my pocket.

I can't imagine the Switch lite being worse than that, but if it is its still not worth buying for me yet then.

>dunno why you're pissy about it

Because I've had retards tell me that its just as much of a handheld as the Vita or 3DS when it clearly isn't. People pretending like its just like a dedicated handheld and refusing to even admit its a hybrid.

Its horrifically overpriced, more so than every handheld its compared to (that's including its game library too), overly large, ergonomically mediocre, and with really poor battery life

It's an inch added to the Vita's size; you can decide whether that's acceptable or not.

> Its horrifically overpriced, more so than every handheld its compared to

It's expensive, compared to the Vita, but you do also balance that with Memory Stick prices vs Micro SD. You can get a 128 GB Micro SD for $20. 512 GB is $100. A 32 GB Memory Stick is still $43.

> (that's including its game library too), overly large, ergonomically mediocre, and with really poor battery life

Agreed on all counts. I like my Switch, and the overly large thing doesn't bother me because I don't actually use it outside the house (I use it in handheld mode when somebody else wants to use the TV, or when I'm working, because I can use it at my desk in small bursts during long compile or transfer processes).

Ergonomically, it's about as comfortable to use as the 3DS, which was also uncomfortable. Handhelds are almost always at least a little uncomfortable to use, especially if they have a thin design with a flat back. You really need to get an aftermarket grip if you want it to be comfortable to use long-term.

Who fucking plays video games when they are in a place like that? I don't know, maybe its because I am getting older but I find games total cancer. You would have to pay me some really good money if you wanted me to play video games outside.

It's can act either as a handheld or as a console. You can consider it a handheld that can use an external TV and controllers, or a console that can be picked up and used portably, but then you're just using extra effort to be contrarian. It's not like "hybrid" is a new word.

However you want to refer to it, it doesn't change what it is or does.

>nintendo is mainly geared toward children

this has literally never been true, the reason it was marketed to kids and not adults in the early years is because adults didn't "get" video games, so they wanted nothing to do with them. The games market was entirely made up of children to late teens, up until the turn of the era where that generation grew into adults playing games, then the industry had everyone hooked on it, young and old. The bright colors are just because it's very easy to draw an audience with something that doesn't look bland, and something that looks like pikmin will sell faster than a game that looks like overlord.

>implying nintendo or any other game company was intentionally marketed strictly to kids for any reason

I agree that the colors are pretty shit, but the original Switch leaves plenty to be desired in that regard. The black looks serviceable but that's it. Dunno why they didn't just use black for an option for the Lite, but gray is close enough.


The Vita' proprietary shit was pure cancer, but I got a 16 GB one included with mine for 150 so its irrelevant to me. Plus the Vita's memory cards went up with price over time because they stopped producing them.

I don't care too much about storage space since I don't buy digital games, and for piracy I don't need to carry every single game on an SD. I'm fine with swapping some out to my HDD or something and not paying more for a higher capacity SD card.

At the moment, I'm just happy to get someone saying "dedicated handheld" in a commercial after being ignored for so long. The 3DS is a shambling undead corpse and the Vita died (in terms of official support, homebrew is still going strong) in 2018 along with Sony.


Nintendo killed the 3DS around the time the Switch released. People are upset they kept up this charade as if they supported the thing rather than just let it coast, and they're lying just like they did with the DS not replacing the GBA.

No, adults loved vidya and were very interested in the new tech. Then the crash happened, which hurt the consumers as much as the corporations. Nintendo released and marketed their NES as a toy, with ROB and plastic light guns and kids in the commercials and cartoon tie-ins and kid-centric magazines. It worked to get past the drought, but bit them in the ass when Sega used the cool kid attitude marketing, and Sony started getting games really for adults.

Nintendo always had a kid-friendly image, as far as in-house games go. It wasn't until Conker's that they produced a game with crude language/imagery

Okay. But why? This defeats the whole purpose of the console, it will openly prevent some people from being able to play all of the games that exist on Nintendo Switch. Whatever happened to the whole "lateral thinking with withered technology" philosophy? At least it seems they're comfortable enough to stray away from gimmicks, but I could argue the entire existence of this new console is a gimmick.

Demographics aside, there still looks to be a few issues-

>console is completely flat, might be hard to hold

>small buttons that are already difficult to use on a normal sized switch

>pastel-only color selection (this console is for women)

>charging cord is still on the bottom

Their only argument for this console to exist is-

>it's good to have options

They aren't lying, the 3DS still fills a niche the Switch doesn't and that's budget gaming. Low income families that want to get something for their kids to play their Mario and their Pokemon on but aren't willing to shell out $300 for the console and $60 per game.

Guess what little Tyrese will be getting for christmas this year? That's right, a $60 dollar 2DS.

It makes business sense to keep the 3DS line on life support, at least until the Switch/Switch Lite can be sold at $120/$150 and still be profitable for Nintendo.

Keep in mind there was never that shift in Europe, since there wasn't a crash there like in the US. Adults are interested in technology (at least a significant portion of them) and games are a very good showcase for graphics/computing/etc tech.



For commuters and kids. MonHun was big in Japan because it could be played on the train over the 20 minutes of free time between working and sleeping.

Parents want it for their kids because it's cheaper and doesn't have any moving parts to lose or plug in or anything. Also Pokemon is coming out and that will sell shitloads of consoles, despite the game's quality.

Some people might just want a portable only even if they only play at home, though I'm sure they'd just get the normal version anyways.

The fuck are you on about? The system is still being produced and it's still getting software updates. Plus, I'm sure there are still a couple upcoming 3DS titles, though mostly in the form of indies. Nintendo hasn't stopped supporting the 3DS, in fact I'm surprised they're even bothering sending updates for the thing considering it's already been blown open by hackers.

The Switch is in no way a 3DS replacement, if anything because it can't play the games the 3DS can, therefore there's still a reason to get a 3DS in the year 2019 considering its low cost and large backlog of quality games.

What would personally make you happy? Do you want Nintendo to just tell people to stop buying a system they're still producing and still have interest in selling? Or would you rather they devote internal resources to making games for an inferior piece of hardware when the Switch is clearly their main focus?

You have to be blind to not realize that Nintendo is merely operating like any company or business should: maximizing their profits.

5.5 is tiny. There's games on the system where the developers didn't even try to scale the UI and the result is that some games are almost difficult to read on the 6.2 inch screen the current model has. You reduce that further and it's possible that some games will be barely legible on the lite.

A company being honest, or supporting an audience they developed that kept them fucking alive while the Wii U flopped should make one happy if one was a part of that audience.

It would also have been nice if they had at least tried to keep making games after the Switch was released; around that time is when support for the 3DS took an absolute nosedive.

It turns out they just put the graphics settings in a plaintext file, so if you have homebrew you can turn up the max/min resolution for docked or portable/disable bloom/turn off the handheld mode's disgusting blur filter/etc. You can also over/underclock the system for each individual game in portable, charging, and/or docked configurations. With both you can turn up the max res, disable some of the effects, and have it run smoother.

You're just grasping at straws here anon, to the point where I have a hard time believing you're not just baiting.

Nobody's arguing that the system is still part of Nintendo's plans for the future. It obviously isn't, the Switch is at the top of their list of priorities moving forward, as it should. The point people are trying to make is that the 3DS is still technically an active system, in the sense that it's still being manufactured and games are still being printed, as opposed to shit like the Vita where the system is out of production and games are no longer being sent out to stores.

It's had a good run so far, but you can't expect them to make first-party games for it forever. In fact, I'm surprised we even got stuff like Luigi's Mansion or that Kirby Wii port. Persona Q2 came out not too long ago too. Just because the console isn't getting first-party releases doesn't mean it's discontinued, hell, the last first party game on the GBA was Rhythm Tengoku on 2006, but the console wasn't officially pulled out of production until 2010.

It's obvious that Nintendo wants to phase out the 3DS, but clearly it won't until it has something to fill the gap. The Switch library isn't quite there yet, and they aren't willing to produce a Switch model at a low enough cost to cater to the sector of the market the 2DS does, so there's still a tiny niche for the 3DS left. That's why they're still bothering with it.


>You mean anti-piracy/hacking and security updates.

>They shut down freeshop permanently last year iirc which was huge.

It's an update on the software, so yes. If you knew anything about Nintendo consoles you'd understand that 90% of the shit they do in terms of updates is security patches and anti-piracy tweaks. The Switch software is at version 8.1 and only three updates have been significant for the end user so far.

>That should make people happy?

No, but it shouldn't surprise you. People here are acting like it's a huge shock that Nintendo is making business oriented move. It's a corporation, not your best friend, they exist to make money. They'd fuck your mom and kill your dog if it meant their profits increased.

>It would also have been nice if they had at least tried to keep making games after the Switch was released; around that time is when support for the 3DS took an absolute nosedive.

But they did. Whether you liked them or not is a different story, but the truth is they kept pushing out "big" releases after the Switch was already out. Hell, we even got some dual releases with the Switch, like Fire Emblem Warriors or Captain Toad.

Anon, you're embarrassing yourself. Show me the part where I said there will be new 3DS games from Nintendo? There's a few indies in the pipeline, sure, but Nintendo would be stupid to focus their first-party studios on a less powerful system with a 240p screen in 2019 solely to satisfy a sector of their audience that refuses to move on.

Like I said, they'll keep the system on life support for as long as they can, pushing out cheaper releases of their games through the Nintendo Selects line, solely to cater to people with little kids or casuals who want their fix of Mario or Animal Crossing without shelling out $360+ dollars. Or, in >>16682145 's words, the system is basically undead, but it hasn't been replaced. It's clear Nintendo still has a use for it.

No. We're using the same bullshit standards you used for that terrible 3DS list for which many were only released in NA too.

Since december of 2018 at least 60 games were released digitally for the NA PSN for Vita.

Physically, its had about 22 physical releases in North America since the beginning of 2019;much of that is from LRG or indies self-publishing, it still requires far more developer effort and support than releasing digitally.

This doesn't even get into the Japanese or Asian-English side, though there should be some overlap as a result of some localized games coming west.

Go back and read those posts again, champ. Take your time if you need to. No one claimed Nintendo would make new games. At most, we've said indies will still be released, which is factually true.

>There isn't going to be a sequel to the 3DS, especially now that they're announcing a Switch at $200 point.

That pretty much means it's not going to be replaced, therefore Nintendo's statement is still "truthful". It's just marketing speak to get dummies like you riled up. The Switch Lite isn't replacing the 3DS, the 3DS is still in the market, has its own games that the Switch Lite can't play, and is geared towards a different market demographic. The fact that you're taking this corporate statement as a personal offense instead of seeing right through it tells me you probably aren't very smart.

>They're slowly going to ghost support for the 3DS when the sales dip enough to justify not spending any further resources on it.

That's what everyone's been saying all along. Nintendo will keep the system on life support.

I don't get why you have so much difficulty understanding these extremely simple concepts.


>Some crap no one uses? The console not falling apart in your hands and being one solid piece?

It's the reason it's called the "Switch", anon, because you can switch between handheld and docked play instantly. This is a Switch that can't switch, so you lose at least 50% of the appeal right there.

Nobody ever claimed there was going to be a sequel to the 3DS. In fact, you're the only one who implied that the system not being dead meant it would get a "new version". Nobody you were talking to ever said this.

> 3) They're slowly going to ghost support for the 3DS when the sales dip enough to justify not spending any further resources on it.

Yes, nobody ever disagreed with this. In fact, everybody has been saying this exactly to you. The 3DS is on life support. If something is on life support, it is explicitly not dead.

> For some reason you're agreeing with me on every point but at the same time disagreeing with me because you don't want it to be true.

From my perspective, this is exactly what you're doing. You define "dead" as "not getting more first-party games or a new hardware-revision/sequel console", apparently, and I am saying that this is a retarded point. You also keep claiming, bewilderingly, that somebody else ever claimed that the 3DS would ever get new first-party games, which you brought up in the first place and nobody else has said in this thread.

I'm not sure you even are aware what you're arguing about.

Who gives a shit about the fucking gimmicks.

People want to play good games. Their upcoming library will determine the Switch Lite's success more than anything.

The 3D of the 3DS was a fucking joke for example. The 2DS sold fine despite it essentially being a "3DS without the 3D".



People aren't shocked or surprised. They're just pissed and annoyed and don't like Nintendo doing that.

You saying they're a corporation doesn't make it better. You giving them justification from a corporate standpoint doesn't make it right.

"Dual-releases" too give me a fucking break. Fire Emblem Warriors was not only a joke and an insult to the FE fanbase, it ran worse than dogshit on the 3DS. A few remaster bones thrown in the 3DS's way after the fact means next to nothing. It was lip service at best, and shit they were planning on doing anyways at worst. The amount and level of quality games tanked, the overall support given tanked dropped like a stone.

Its not a matter of disagreeing on a point, its a matter of you holding a detached viewpoint on it vs me holding a pissed viewpoint because I don't like seeing companies do this kind of shit.

It doesn't matter if it makes the most financial sense to them, its a net loss to me, the customer, ergo I should be fucking pissed if I care at all. Moreover, there is customer goodwill to be gained if they had kept up stronger support for it. Its not so black and white.

Is this being marketed intelligently, or do normalfags actually go places like skateparks or rock climbing gyms to play video games instead of, ya know, skating and climbing? I was under the impression that when people play portables, it's mostly to kill time while they're on their lunch break at school or work, or they are a passenger in a car, bus, or train. If you go somewhere as specific as a climbing gym, why wouldn't you go there to do that, and then when you're done, go back to the comfort of your home to so shit like play games.

Or was it just not visually interesting enough to show someone playing their switch lite on the bus?

Also they missed an opportunity to call it the Lite Switch.

I'd say you're the one that needs to fix his attitude. You seem to have this notion of what a console should be that you project onto companies that don't give a shit about you in particular.

You know what a consumer should do? Evaluate products on the value they have at the moment of purchase, and make smart, informed decisions on whether they feel that product is worth the asking price.

Nintendo and the other console manufactures hate that shit, because they sell products based on the 'it sucks now, but it'll get better!' mentality, which either results in fags desperately trying to justify their purchase by sucking more corporate dick, or angry posters complaining that a videogame company dared to act for their own benefit instead of catering to their every whim. But guess what? By the time you get there, the company already got your money, they don't have to give a shit. You'll come back for more later anyway, and the cycle will begin anew.

But what do I know, you probably own a Switch, so you aren't a stranger to buying incomplete products I guess.

It didn't use to "suck now", it was always bleeding edge tech in consoles. The lack of good launch titles is a sign of a lack of good titles in general. All we're seeing is remakes of remakes at this point and Nintendo aren't doing shit new either.

The person complaining is that Nintendo are releasing subpar games. Pokemon games should not be hitting single digit frame rates ever. And yet if you play Su/Mo in an old 3DS (which is supported) it will hit those levels. That's not acting in your own interest it's straight up bad.


These people have always existed and always will, tranny or not once a good exploit is found they will simply make it public and by that point it's too late to prevent it. you can patch future consoles but the originals still out there to be cracked and exploited.

see, this would almost be alright if it had dock support. My main usage with the switch is to play it on the TV, then if my roommate wants to use the TV I can just pick it up and play on the couch. Only problem with that is the thing is heavy and awkwardly shaped so I get a cramp after a while. All they did was make a dumbass looking handheld without the one thing the switch excels at. You can talk about nogaems all you want, but the idea of being able to swap from TV to handheld is really neat and the reduction of headache from arguing over the TV was worth it in of itself. Games wise, I wish there was more exclusive titles but the selection isn't bad. The port of Civ 6 is shockingly competent so hopefully we get some more strategy games for the switch.

I don't have any reason to buy this, I hate faggot colors, I need dock support, and i'm not so soy poisoned that an extra few ounces is going to prevent me from playing bing bing wahoo man.

I only play the Wii U on the tablet and don't have it hooked up to the screen at all. Just because you don't leave your basement and your mother wants the TV doesn't mean it's the same for everyone else.

the wii u failed because the marketing made no sense. They advertised it like it was an add on for the wii instead of a new console. The name itself didn't help either. Since no one adopted it early, devs didn't make games which meant no killer apps and no new adoptions. The first month of a consoles life is the most important, you fuck that up and you have no console. That's why it failed whereas the switch succeeded. The switch largely does the same thing as the wii u only it was advertised competently and the retarded masses could understand what they were trying to do with it.

The switch was never ideal as a portable anyways, why would you take your expensive console out in public where it'd get nabbed. Barring that, it's weirdly shaped, doesn't fit in a pocket, and has fuck all for battery life. As a device you play at home, it's perfect, but I can't see myself going to the skate park or rock climbing with it.

>It's likely that Nintendo see the console market is stagnating while they always dominated handhelds and are playing to their strengths

They probably came to that conclusion after realizing that the wii was the exception to their sales patterns not the new norm with the wii u.

>If TV to portable usage was a real selling point the wii U wouldn't of failed.

They just thought of the wii u as a console ds, not a hybrid console. It was pretty obvious they thought of it that way because they were completely blindsided at the question at the e3 reveal if more than one tablet could be connected to the wii u, as this could prevent screen watching in multiplayer games.

389b24  No.16682509


The Switch sold for the same rough price as the 3DS, PSP and Vita all did. The 200-300 bucks range. So the Switches price is no different to those things. And people carry much more expensive phones all the time.

The switch hasn't succeeded though. It's still the runner up like every other nintendo console is. You get your nintendo bing bing wahoos, a bunch of ports from better systems a generation ago and then we start the cycle again. It's been like this since the gamecube and Nintendo don't learn. They make gimmicks which no one else uses, sell their virtual console shit yet again and then you get a zelda and a mario with a star fox/metroid depending on the generation.

Wii U failed because it did the same stupid shit which the Switch is still doing. The only difference is the Wii U had the 3DS to knee cap it and the Switch doesn't.

If it wasn't for autists buying anything with Mario on it and familys knowing Nintendo is fine for kids nintendo would already be dead.


It's hard to say exactly what nintendo thought the Wii U was. I like it as a system and I enjoy playing games on it but it just doesn't have any games you really want. Arkham whatever already goes for three bucks in a sale, why would I pay full price for the Wiiu version?

c353e6  No.16682531


I'm just basing it on the fact that the tablet has a stylus and touch screen controls, typically used as a map or hotkey when games used it beyond as a portable screen, and the fact they ruined a starfox game by demanding you to play by looking between tv and tablet. I know it's a hunch, but come on, how is it not like the ds?

A console doesn't have to be #1 to be a success, anon. Hell, I'd say it's placing among other consoles doesn't even matter because it isn't even competing in the same market as the PC, PS4 and XBone. It makes a profit and has a place in households even if they already have another gaming console.

You're neglecting the fact that they sold the consoles themselves at a profit, a rarity in the industry so their profit strategy was different.

Whole point of the wii was to tap into previously unmarketable demographic. It worked in the short term, but failed in the long term because said demographic doesn't see the point in buying a lot of games and now plays games on their smartphone for free.

The fact is, Nintendo enjoys something Sony and Microsoft do not - a profit margin on their fucking consoles. There have only been two times in history that one of Nintendo's consoles haven't been sold at a profit - the Wii U by their own admission, and the 3DS immediately after the price slash (though that one became profitable very soon after). While Sony was selling PS3s that cost them $900 to put together for $600 and still trailing dead fucking last, Nintendo was making money off of every Wii sold.

PS3 did better than the 360 by the end of it's life. And the people buying those consoles were spending way more on software and third party licensing fees add up.

Nintendo does that a lot with their handhelds, and the Switch is technically a handheld. This Switch Lite revision is typical of Nintendo's handheld stuff.

However, the Lite represents the handheld functionality of the Switch exclusively, and ignores anything to do with the console half.

I'm just not sure they'll make an actually improved version for the console market.

Those are model revisions not an expansion or improved version. I know that does seem like splitting hairs but all of the models were still compatible on the same handheld line. What everyone want's seems to be a more powerful switch not a model change or new color. The only time where Nintendo did something like that the hardware wasn't utilized well by devs, like the n64 expansion pak, 64DD, and the the new 3ds capabilities, even then it didn't really improve the graphics of those games.

806866  No.16682698


So assuming they will just go full mobile or the way of Sega, why the fuck have they not done so until then? In the N64-GC generations, between the N64, GC, Virtual Boy and GBA, there was only one piece of hardware that sold okay. That would be a great time to fuck off and give up. But since then, they've had the Wii, the DS, the 3DS and now the Switch, all either successes or massive successes. The only failure was the Wii U. And since you're so fucking obsessed with software, there's a fucking reason why Nintendo always highlights how this one game is the "fastest selling in the series' history". Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart, Smash, Zelda. And if you want to bitch about third parties, numerous indieshit devs have stated that their games have sold much better on the Switch than any other console, so they're doing fine enough there as well. They've had much more success lately than before. Why would they quit now?


The Gameboy Color was a more powerful version of the Gameboy. The DSi XL was a more powerful and more feature-packed model of the DS. The New 3DS was a more powerful model of the 3DS. The GBA has been the only exception.

BotW emulates perfectly fine through Cemu. Out of the hundred hours I put into the game, the only glitches I've encountered is an issue related to playing the game at a higher framerate during the Thunderblight Ganon fight and a visual glitch after killing Molduga that reset after entering a shrine. It runs so good that I'll claim that emulated is the definitive version of the game. Just follow BSoD's setup and configuration guide minus the RAM optimization, which I found kept crashing my game. You'll have some massive performance hits initially due to loading shaders, but the more you play the more shaders are cached. You'll also want to have a controller with a gyroscope because there are some pretty shitty sections requiring it. I just use a Dualshock 4. The Switch emulator, Yuzu, is also running the game so the sequel might be playable within a few months of release.


I have 8gb of ram, a GTX 970, an a 4690k and get 72 fps during the shrine sections and 45-50 in the overworld at 1080p. Only major performance hit I had was at the Yiga Clan hideout.

>The Gameboy Color was a more powerful version of the Gameboy

I would consider that a different handheld line not a revision. As it has plenty of exclusive games. The gameboy pocket or the color pallet gameboys would be a revision, as they have the same hardware as the orginal gameboy.

>The DSi XL was a more powerful and more feature-packed model of the DS.The New 3DS was a more powerful model of the 3DS

A soild counterpoint, but I would aruge how many games utilized the DSi or new 3ds exclusive features. Very few because you have a small market compared to the base market. A 'pro' switch would face the same problem, it would be a more wise decision to just make a switch 2 instead.

That wouldn't make much sense for Nintendo though. Their handhelds have been far more successful overall than their home consoles. To compare by generation:

I'm putting gen4/5 together because I couldn't find separate sales for the Game Boy Color which was more dominant than the original during gen5. (Also because many GBC games like Gold/Silver were backwards compatible with the original GB.) Even combined, all Game Boy Sales outsold both the SNES and N64.

>Game Boy: '118m

>Super Nintendo: 49m

>Nintendo 64: 32m

>Game Boy Advance: 81m

>Gamecube: 21m

>Nintendo DS: 154m

>Wii: 101m

>3DS: 74m

>Wii U: 13m

>Total handheld console sales: 465m (includes Virtual Boy)

>Without Switch: 429m

>Total home console sales: 315m

Sales might be off by a bit due to rounding errors when adding estimates, but it doesn't make a big enough difference to affect the overall point.

You forgot to mention that the handheld mode of most switch games is complete dogshit, i hope you dumb niggers enjoy playing xenoblade 2 with N64 graphics and running at a silky smooth 15fps. This shit ain't even a 2DS, at least that thing could play most games just fine, the N3DS' sole advantage was being able to handle SNES injects at full speed and overclocking for a 30% performance boost in pokemon and senran kagura, both of which needed CFW so the regular user didn't benefit from anything anyway.

How did Nintendo get so successful with handhelds? They had minimal to no competition during gen4-6. Their only real competitor was Sony during gen7/8, and Sony only broke even at best with the PSP while the Vita flopped.

Is it because a family could share a console, but you couldn't share a handheld (as easily) meaning one household had to buy multiple handhelds vs 1 console?

Oh yeah, and another thing. Don't play BotW, or at least all the way through. You'll be more than equipped to fight Ganon if you defeat Thunderblight and get the best power in the game. All the bosses are pretty shit. I had an issue with Waterblight, but it's because his arena in the Vah Ruta quickly becomes cancer during the second phase. I'll concede that it has great music, nice visuals, and extremely polished mechanics, but there are no real dungeons other than Hyrule Castle and the combat gets dull quickly. Champion's Ballad is the only reason to actually play through the game, though it's a long fucking quest. Overall, it's a decent-enough game, but it's repetitive to the point where I kept asking myself "Why am I doing this?"

So you know, the reason this works is because the Switch uses conventional hardware of the sort you might see in a tablet and has a debug mode triggered by holding down a specific combination of buttons on boot up. The Switch does not have a physical "Home" button but the contacts on the board still exist, that's what the paper clip is bridging.


This depends. The reason why the RCM fault was given to NVIDIA and others initially and not the people looking to homebrew their Switch is because of how many devices were affected, some of them used in stuff that actually matters. Responsible disclosure.

Because not a single fucking company has tried competing against Nintendo's handhelds on price.

The Vita had shitty overpriced memorycards and nogaems. Every single Atari and Sega handheld has a battery life of two hours compared to the Gameboy's 10-20, and also nogaems.

That 150 million took 8 fucking years to reach. A rough calculation would say that, given the same lifespan as the DS and the same sellthrough rate it has currently, the Switch would sell 124 million, being the third most successful console of all time. It most likely won't reach that much, but are you really going to argue that the console that has an upcoming mainline Pokemon game is going to just die right here and now, at 35 million?

And once again, you were the one calling the Wii a fluke. The entire generation was a fluke, because that's the generation when gaming exploded. Every piece of hardware did exceedingly well, and consoles that were already guaranteed to do well did twice as well, which was the case for the DS.

The 3DS's >75 million sales are a much more sustainable estimate, as the handheld line has hovered close enough to that number, and the Switch will easily reach that number.

Oh, and if DS to Switch is such a big drop, what do you think of PS2 to PS3? 155 million to 80. Or what about the Xbox 360's >80 million dropping to the Xbox One's 35-40 million?


Despite saying that numerous times, you still haven't posted a single source for it. And even if it was the case, Nintendo reaping all of the profits from mega-successful first party games would give them a lot more than Sony, which has next to none first party games.

The switch lite is a glorified gameboy, if you're okay with that i guess it's alright, but get normal one if you want to hook it up to a tv. If you want to pirate shit, you'll have to hunt down a 2017 switch tablet, as they patched out the RCM exploit.

If you have any intention of touching Splatoon, then definitely don't buy the Lite.

And the screen is attached to the controller that you are currently waving and wiggling around.

Sure, you could prop it up on a table and connect another, separate controller (which youd also have to pay for, and theyre not cheap), but then youre trying to play it on an even smaller screen than the regular Switch and at a reduced framerate compared to TV-hookup. At that point you should just be using a standard model.

Alternatively, you could turn gyro-aim off, but then you should also probably just kill yourself.

200 dollars doesn't seem like that much of a price drop worth it when it's lacking so many features. Should've gone for half the price as an enticement. At 200 it should've still been able to dock(and probably still can, I doubt they removed the video out) and had a kickstand.

How can companies sell their games on Nintendo hardware if they don't support it, I always felt that the PSP had far better support than the DS, the production values were significantly higher, the games were less casual and the marketing budgets were existent, with the DS it felt like they just made shovelware, and then complained that a game thrown together by a bunch of interns with no marketing didn't become a major hit.


The price drop is pretty pathetic, should have gone for $170, and dropped the Switch down to $250, we've already seen what appears to be an internal revision for the regular Switch where they are using a revised SoC probably the one in the Lite, which will be cheaper to manufacture, draw less power and generate less heat, there's going to be some savings in there, but consumers will be seeing none of it. there's no way you will see a price drop that puts the Switch $50 above the Switch lite, the difference in value is far greater than that.

c353e6  No.16683529


Honestly it all depends on your budget and desires. Do you want to just play old games on the go without regard to the quality of emulation? Just use your smartphone, get controller phone clip and a thin controller like a 8bitdo since they're flat. Yes I know that's heresy here, but it is an option for cheapskates. Want to play old games and new bing bing wahoo games? Get a RCM-able switch. Don't care about bing bing wahoo, but using your phone is too plebish? Get a vita.

While it might be so, you have to remember that their objective is to give someone options, not eliminate them, for PR speak. If you had that, nobody would fucking buy any other model, ever. They want you to actually consider, with both having some pros and cons, not one that's objectively the best option and every other version being inferior in every way.

>I would consider that a different handheld line not a revision. As it has plenty of exclusive games.

I can see where you're coming from, and while I agree the Color should have been treated as a separate line, many games for GBC, DSi and N3DS utilized the new hardware while allowing for compatibility with older hardware revisions. Pokemon Gold/Silver (not Crystal) could be played on Game Boy, Pokemon BW/BW2 supported DSi features while being fully usable on a normal DS, and some N3DS games supported its second analog and higher specs while offering a more limited experience on O3DS. (In fact, GBC and N3DS are objectively better than their predecessor due to compatibility and specs, but their predecessor may be considered if there's a price difference and the newer games aren't appealing. Unfortunately DSi isn't better than an original DS due to loss of GBA compatibility, but might be better in some cases. I usually just use a 3DS for DSi games.)

People also forget that Pokemon Let's go **fuck* Evee and Pikachu are 20 to 30 dollars more than traditional gens, and selling 10 million on a console with a much much smaller install base.

Bitching about Sword and Shield dexit fiasco aside, I can easily see it selling 15 to 20 million at a 60 dollar price-point, especially with the Switch lite. People underestimate how stupid the average consumer is, I spoke with 3 people, just Today, who upon hearing the news of the Switch lite, straight up said they'd be buying it, because they wanted either a Vita 2.0 or a straight up portable system.

I don't blame them either I rarely use my switch in dock mode But I do appreciate the Gimmick none-the-less, honestly I'm more hopeful for a Switch Pro, but I don't know if that's ever gonna happen.

>look for used Wii U's

>they sold like 10 units total so they are expensive if you can even find one

What? I just checked Amazon and found a used complete set with Nintendo Land for $220. (I paid $200 for an official refurbished back in 2014 with similar stuff.) On ebay I'm seeing $100-$170 for a complete system, some even including additional games.

I can recommend it if you want to run Wii or GC games/homebrew and don't have a Wii, but otherwise just emulate the few games you want. WiiU isn't worth it for most people outside of novelty. The Switch cucked WiiU on everything from outselling it in under a year, porting almost everything of note in its library, and even being an easier console to hack. The one benefit to the WiiU for me was trying out GC LAN with Devolution and not having to bother with a second Wii or network adapter for GC. The developer is a jew who implemented anti-piracy in a ROM loader, but NIntendont hasn't added network support despite the feature being requested over 5 years ago after Devolution implemented it.

You can find them on Craigslist you know. That's how I found a $215 Switch with botw or mario. Don't recall if it was both exactly.

Nintendo said the lite cannot be docked. If there is a dock later then it'll only be a charging station with no HDMI out.

b7fc39  No.16684366


No. The station is just a piece of 99% empty plastic.

While the console clocks down the GPU in handheld mode for battery life, in station mode it has to display 1080p instead of 720p.

So it depends entirely on the game.

Why are you posting eye cancer.


Pretty much. It serves its purpose though as a thing to charge it in. Still whoever thought a system designed to sit on a table put the power on the bottom is an idiot.

b7fc39  No.16684524


>put the power on the bottom is an idiot

The whole put it on the table thing seems to be a miscommunicated third usage situation. There is a stand but when you're not at home you'll rarely take it apart because it also means less comfort

You'd have two halves instead of a one piece controller while at home you can use a switch pro controller.

Who even thought having seperate controller parts would be a good idea?

Instead of attatching the controller parts, the could have designed it in a way where you shove the system into the controller, like a giant cartrige.

You could even let the screen be part of the controller and put a tiny secondary system into it, which stores GUI graphics in RAM when the game loads so that the controller serves as an efficient secondary GUI screen,

I should be patenting these ideas instead of posting them on image boards.

Pokémon is the highest grossing media franchise in history. It's going to take years of major fuckups to hurt Nintendo. Even if new games stop selling, they still have merchandise and GO.

I was looking locally, buying used stuff off ebay makes me nervous. But digging deeper I am seeing some for not too bad prices, last I checked I was seeing like $170 plus shipping, now it's closer to $120 with extras which isn't too bad. Not sure how much on the system I really care about though to justify the investment in basically one game.


I was looking on craigslist, there is a total of 2, both are scams, despite being in a relatively large area (unfortunately for me).

374df1  No.16687603


I initially didn't check my local Craigslist because listings would be different than yours, but looking at it now I'm seeing $60 - $170. Anything more than $120 includes a couple games or more.

a2a875  No.16688233


I would say that if you really want a WiiU hacking is necessary, but also factor in the price of a hard drive and a y-splitter. That's been the reliable way to get pirated games on the system. You can't use an SDCard with the WiiU games and most Wii loaders need an HDD. You would also need two since they use different file systems unless you play your single player Wii games in WiiU VC.

a002f2  No.16694923


If you still haven't bought anything, here's this listing for a Switch on a Craigslist if you can drive to it. https://bakersfield.craigslist.org/vgm/d/edison-nintendo-switch-with-zelda/6909360019.html

It's likely a jailbreakable model considering the games bundled with it.
