you can tell its new switch if the whole box is red like this picture, the original which has some white on the box.

An american youtuber from texas got one called "dreamcastguy" you might check your local target/best buy/walmart/gamestop to see if their stocking any new ones!

This is huge, I would get one but i really want the smaller lite with the d-pad :\ so Im gonna wait for that version, this one has apparently has 9 hours of battery life while playing games like FF7 and better joycons and all the same features as the original switch.

Anyone getting this or waiting for the lite or just sticking to the normal switch?

@ProtossRushX: You should stop all your Switch shilling until you get one.

Is there some sort of serial number to look for doubt we'd get anything early in the uk anyway.

Even though I already own a Switch since launch, I'm gonna go ahead and get the battery life upgrade and I'll be fine with this cause I wasn't gonna wait for Switch Pro model anyways since power isn't something I care on a Nintendo console.

Yeah I saw that video from DreamCastGuy yesterday and was a bit surprised they were out already. Even though I have no real issues with the battery life of my current Switch I am kind of tempted to pick one of these up to replace it because having more battery life available would be nice. Also having a more efficient CPU and cooler running system is always good for system longevity as well. I’ll probably just wait to see if they bring out a Switch Pro though.

@Ant_17: It's not a waste for new buyers. Unless you're suggesting that Nintendo should have just discontinued the normal model and gone 100% Lite, in which case... Well, it wouldn't be the dumbest thing you ever said but it would be up there.

Why would sheep care about battery life anyway? They are casual gamers and the switch has no games.

They buy like 1 or 2 games per year. The only time they play multiplayer is when their drunk friends come over for Mario party, but that is again...a couple times a year because the average sheep is 30-40 years old and life gets in the way.

But whatever, the sheep will buy the new version like they do everytime Nintendo releases something. It’s sickening.

It's baffling they put a bigger battery than the lite that is handheld only.

@robert_sparkes: Actually they put a smaller battery in the Switch Lite which is why it has less battery life then the revised Switch. The CPU is more efficient and helps extend battery life in both the Switch Lite and revised Switch.

@Ant_17: mini is a mistake, IMO. Works fine for games built for mobile (a la 3ds), but the whole point of the switch is that you can play console games as well - and for those the smaller the screen the worse. The text gets tiny, details that the dev assumes you can see start to disappear, and when they employ UI scaling then more and more of the FOV gets taken up by it.

The switch is like a Nomad, not a Game Gear

But seriously though, you kind of hit the nail on the head why Nintendo will never see the kind of revenue Sony does with Playstation, because Nintendo guys are super exclusive with their purchases. It's the reason Nintendo still talks about wanting to strike big with mobile. No matter how many units they sell, there will always be this ceiling.

It's longer battery life and HD rumble or a better d-pad. I'm gonna go with the former.

Can't wait for digital foundry to go in depth with this new chip.

Lol. Who's crying? You're the one (along with your sad bovine friend - or are you the same person?) coming into a thread about the new Switch model, and spewing out Sony propaganda about revenue for some reason. What an exciting life you must lead.

You're crying, bitch. You're having a meltdown about some shit that's true. You could have ignored the post, but you're about to have a fuckin' prolapse over some dumb shit. Are all Switch owners this tender?

Seriously? Wow. Time for mummy to limit your internet time, child... too much internet is no good.

Sony is higher on average, but not by all that much. Switch is also selling ridiculous amounts of software for this point in its life, to the point that even Nintendo keeps underestimating it.

I will be sticking with the normal Switch for now. I could see myself getting a new Switch if they make one with more power/storage on top of the increased battery life.

You're trolling so obviously you'll either make something up or double-down in response to this, but for people actually curious about it, attach rates increase over time so this isn't an accurate comparison.

That's great and all that you stand by precious sales, but do you honestly speak for all the people that are actually satisfied with their Switch purchases? No, so gtfo and find something better to do.

Cows as usual standing behind the usual most obvious trolls on this site when it supplements their bias.

I'm talking about revenue, not software tie-ins. Nintendo sells a ton of their own software, but they don't see as much money as Sony due to third parties and PSN. Playstation revenue was 21 billion the past fiscal year while Nintendo's was 10.8 bil. While that's a LOT of money, the slim buying habits of the Nintendo core keep it from potentially being more.

@BenjaminBanklin: A significant amount of that comes from PSN and the fact that the Pro exists and costs more. Not to mention the fact that PS4 just flat-out has more games. That revenue also includes PlayStation Now and PSVR.
