Nintendo Switch Lite to arrive for $200, and here's how it plays
When emerged of a lower-cost Nintendo Switch that wouldn't have detachable Joy-Con controllers and couldn't plug into a TV, my son had one question. What's the point of a Switch that doesn't Switch? Good question. But that's exactly what Nintendo is releasing on Sept. 20. The Nintendo Switch Lite is handheld-only and costs $200.
Nintendo Switch Lite is a smaller, cheaper Switch built exclusively for handheld play
There's a new Switch on the way, and it's a whole lot smaller. Today Nintendo revealed the Switch Lite, designed as a less expensive alternative to the original tablet / console hybrid. It comes in at $199 - $100 less than the base unit - and for that price you get a streamlined version of the Switch, but also a few caveats.

Only $200, I'm buying it for the shits and gigs.

99% of my Switch usage happens in handheld mode, but those rare moment when I get to dock it and play Smash or Mario Kart with friends are worth the extra bulkiness. The Switch Lite seems ideal for families with multiple kids, each wanting their own. They are cheaper, last longer on the go, and the lack of docking may be a non-issue when everyone has their own.
I never had a switch before, I would love it if I got free 😍

Without a doubt ordering this. Lack of detachable controllers sucks but does it bother you?

This makes total sense for the market, especially when it comes to kids they would probably rarely connect theirs to a TV and only carry it around. Also like the idea of several colors, the original Switch has the controllers to add some form of personalisation but it seems like a lot of people are buying decals.
