    Had the Switch when it released. Realised the games were for kids, sold it. The Switch Lite is for kids mainly and people who wanna play zelda on the go with the more accurate colour screen.

    The Nintendo switch lite sucks because you cannot do the same things as the Nintendo switch

    Shame there’s no kickstand. Y’all really missed out on a video.

    The switch lite is for me the gamer that thinks the normal switch is too expensive for the few Nintendo games I want to play and doesn't care about the docking part or joy-con part of the switch
