Does the Switch Lite kinda feel like the PSP to anyone?

It does to me and I kinda like it. I've had fun memories of my PSP, not to mention I'd often download my game through the PS Store as apposed to buying them on disk, something I find myself doing with the Switch Mini. (Side note, I usually prefer physical media but I really don't like those switch carts.)

Out of curiosity though, does anyone else feel this way or is it just me?

Aye. Well similar: i often think of the switch as the Nintendo Vita.

The vita was an awesome bit of portable gaming kit. If only it had nintendos backing (though it had some great games in fairness).

The switch basically does that.

I actually have a Vita, pre-ordered it back in the day. I don't play it much right now, I actually need to get a new memory card and charger for it, but it was a lot of fun back in the day so I might consider doing that in the near future. After I attempt to restore my old PSP of course, it needs both a new charger and a battery, bare minimum. Might need a new disk reader too.

@blazepanzer24: I think Switch carts are a bit of a hassle as well. It’s not as fluent as with the DS/3DS systems at least. I’ve only started buying games physically again and when I went in to pop a cartridge in it felt like a bit of a process. I myself really don’t like the cover you clip open and closed. It feels flimsy and doesn’t necessarily need to be there. Just my opinion though. :)

The Switch does remind me of the PSP. I think if the PSP actually had a docking system for TV play it would’ve been great. Sure, there were those cables you could buy but from what I’ve heard it didn’t look all that great on the big screen. Physical backwards compatibility on the Vita for PSP games would have been great.
