Hey Bill,

I was looking at the prices of the Nintendo Switch and the Lite Switch and I realized that the Lite Switch is only $100 dollars cheaper than the regular Switch. I feel this is a huge mistake on Nintendo’s part if you add up the numbers. The main things that come with the regular Switch in the box are: a dock, an HDMI cord, joy-con straps, and a charger. The Lite switch only comes with a charger and the console. The dock, joy-con straps, and HDMI cable that don’t come with the Switch Lite are about $95. Meaning that when you buy a regular Switch you are paying bout $5 for: HD rumble, removable and replaceable joy-cons, a kick-stand, a bigger screen and controls, TV accessibility, more games, etc.  You get all of this stuff for an amazing deal compared to the Switch Lite all for the price of a little bit smaller battery life. For these reasons, I would pick a regular Nintendo Switch over the Lite Switch any day. While I can see the Switch Lite for lil’ Timmy, I am not letting Nintendo fool me. (I like to crunch numbers if you couldn’t tell)

Almost your biggest fan,

Hey Bill,

Just wanted to share my thoughts on the switch lite. I’m a little disappointed with the price and no real upgrades to justify the cost. I think that when this releases in September for $200 dollars, people online will be selling their older Nintendo Switch’s on (Facebook Market) ( OfferUp) or (Craigslist) for the same price or lower. So why purchase this when I could get a better switch? I feel like I will wait for the next rumored Upgraded larger model in the future.Thanks for the consistent great content
