This is the most stupid thing I’ve ever heard. I’m sure the casual market will just be scratching their head at the idea of a switch with a nicer screen. So difficult to understand. A marketing teams nightmare. Nintendo is DOOMED
You people overthink everything, and then you act surprised when your market predictions are terribly wrong. Watch this thing sell just fine.
Ya like Nintendo has never had a product flop before.....
Seriously though for 350 dollars, 100 extra for a "nicer screen" I'm not buying that most casual gamers will get this version over the other Switch and I think nobody but the most hardcore of Nintendo fans will upgrade.
The reception to this upgrade has been a gigantic meh.
Eh. it's pretty much in line with what Nintendo does.
Current owners who want the better screen will upgrade and either sell their current Switch or, ideally, pass it down to someone else be it their kid, sibling, etc. Switch hardware continues to spread around a single household (which is one of their goals with this platform).
I think if your expectation was for this to be an small upgrade to your handheld then that's probably about as good as you're going to get from Nintendo but well a lot of people were expecting more ( was expecting nothing at all and I was still disappointed) and for the price of the unit they SHOULD be getting more in my opinion.
A nicer screen, a wider kickstand, ethernet port - 2 usb ports is not worth an extra 100 dollars.
We shall see how the market responds.
