Should You Buy A Switch Lite?

The Switch Lite was recently officially announced by Nintendo, coming out around September 20 with the price of $200. The price has gone down for about $99 from the original Switch, but there has been drastic changes. Which leads us to the question; is it worth it?

The Switch Lite was found useless by a lot of Switch owners since it has the inability to connect to the TV and the joy cons cannot be removed since it is made to played in handheld mode only. It pretty much lost the idea of ‘Switch’ but it’s called Switch Lite for a reason. Features such as rumble and motion censor will be removed as well and it would affect some games like the famous ‘1, 2, Switch,' unless you buy the joy cons separately and connect it to your Switch Lite. The Switch Lite also won’t be compatible to Nintendo labo. Besides that, some features were upgraded; they put the d-pad back and extended the battery life for 30 minutes more (I know, upsetting upgrade).

Personally, I find the Switch Lite useful to people who want to save, those who don't play much or those who want to upgrade from their DS but can't afford a Switch. Although, I'd say you should wait for reviews involving the controllers. It might have the same problem with the original joy cons; drifting.

The Switch Lite will come out in three available pastel colors; turquoise, grey and yellow. It confuses me as to why Nintendo didn't include a red one since the color scheme of the original Switch is blue and red. Other than that, Nintendo will also be launching a Pokemon themed Switch Lite. It'll have a light grey skin and blue and red pads with sketches in the back. I assume Nintendo will also launch a Zelda themed one in the future, so I'll be waiting for that.

Well that's all I have to say, what do you guys think? Will you consider owning one in the future?

      I'm ashamed to admit that I still haven't played the Switch yet. Would love get one of these.
