Switch released the Switch light for $200, and it is mobile only. If they released a TV only console, no screen, no joycons, and shipped with a Switch Pro controller for $200, would you buy it? I would. I do not have a Switch, I was thinking of getting one but I have absolutely no use for the mobile aspect. If they made a cheaper TV only version, 10/10 I'd buy it.

Maybe? I have a switch Lite though, so probably not.

For me the lite is all I need to get my Nintendo fix.

They can just copy the VITATV/PSTV. Its basically a docked Vita. I think launch price was $99.

The question is how low can Nintendo get the switch price. If they can get a switch tv type device at the £150 price point then it might do well.

Yes, it's better than a Switch Lite. The Nintendo Switch is the best of both worlds.

I mean...I've been playing exclusively in portable mode with my new Switch model this year as I've messed up trying to put on enough screen protectors as it is.

Although I like playing in portable mode, but I prefer TV, I like having the option regardless.

I like playing on a screen with a real controller as well. Looking down at a mobile device for too long can be a real pain in the neck (literally).

I probably wouldn't since I already own a regular Switch, but it would make sense to offer this as a cheaper option.

Yeah. Once you take out the screen, batteries, and other mobile related components, I'd imagine the cost would come down considerably.
