I did. I was able to just exchange it since it was less then a month since I bought my Switch. Aside from the longer battery I noticed the newer model runs cooler, it doesn't feel as hot while on TV mode. Also the cart slot cover fits tighter now, it takes a bit more to open it. The little cover also feels a sturdier. Ive also read some people say the screen is a bit better as well. Overall im happy to have the revised version even though I didn't have the original for very long.

People are already buying a Lite for an extra hour or so of battery time despite it missing a lot of features but I'm interested.
If it loses TV out but managed to play in the same quality as "TV Mode" (docked mode if you prefer) AND had a nice 1080p screen I'd be ok with it. I love (present-tense) my NN3DS and would be happy to have a full-featured NS ready for travel. Plus, it would free up an HDMI port!

Too bad the imaginary NS w/ the high-PPI touchscreen couldn't also have a wifi chipset w/ Miracast.

No you can get either. I got the neon ones. I have a Nintendo online so I backed up my saves. I've heard some stores will let you transfer there though if you ask.

Honestly I think the screen looks sightly better but thought I was crazy. Yeah the cartridge cover and kickstand are much more sturdy. I had a hard time opening the kickstand.

I dunno.

Someone here does though.

There are 3 colours. Grey, blue, yellow. If the black one is real, that be nice.

Also that is one sexy D-Pad.

So looking at the new model they got there was a difference in screen quality compared to the old model they had. The new screen had a red tinge to it which the old one didn't.

Pretty sure that was settled (IPS ), now the debate could be OLED vs QLED.

so i wonder is mine hackable? i have no idea how to do that anyways but i haven't got the new one yet, what they SHOULD have done is give us more than 32 GB since that is so damn little but than what do i know ya know?

i dunno why anyone would want the lite version but to each their own i guess. also i have no idea, how often do they normally have them anyways?

September 19th is the anniversary of Nintendo Online. With the recent patent for SNES controllers all signs point to that finally being included as a way to entice subscription renewals. Would they have a Direct just for that though? Probably not. We've seen enough of Luigi, Zelda and Pokemon. Not really sure what else they could put in to hit that anniversary. Fore sure we'll have at least one more by the end of the year.

How many times have you played it on Switch? Both the 1st and 2nd game are on NSO.

I can't decide if I wanna blind buy Astral Chain or wait for a price drop. I've got so many games I could be playing right now but it looks so good.
