This thing will be a bare minimum of effort from Nintendo, as is usual with their hardware. I'm guessing most games will be 1440p/30 or heavily checkerboarded 4k/sub30. Not trying to be pessimistic, but we're all spoiled by 60FPS console gaming now so this doesn't excite me as much as it may have say, a year ago.

Nintendo found new chips on nvidia’s scrap bin?

No doubt we need a better spec’d switch but keep your expectations in check, Nintendo is all about games not tech specs.
that's true

Lol "spoiled"? these new consoles are new and they're still releasing some games at 30fps. I've been playing pc games at 60fps since more than a decade ago and still can play games at 30fps without any problem. The problem is when goes below 30 like most games last gen.

In a few days a Nintendo Direct comes out of nowhere: "Black screen, two silver joycons made out of actual titanium emerge out of the darkness, followed by the switch's main unit. Both titanium joycons attach themselves to the main unit. Furukawa appears. "We've fixed the joycons". Drops a mic. Cut. "399". THE END.

Wait, wait, wait. That huge d-pad as the main thing on top? I have a feeling the fighting game community are going to go berserk.

Call me when Nintendo learns to make good d-pads again. The Switch pro controller d-pad sucks.

Fighting community and d-pads? Fighting community uses arcade sticks.

Depends on the game. The best controller for Smash Bros. currently is this 20 button no stick or dpad monstrocity.

$399 for a Switch Pro? Or i prefer now the Super Switch. The same as a PS5 DE? If it´s better or equal to the PS4 with a better CPU then ok fine.
A better cpu then the ps4? Possible but not by much if any.

More like ”We didn’t fix the joy-cons but you suckers will buy this shit anyway so why bother”

Alas, if joysticks that didn't wear out and drift within a few months were your bare minimum requirement for buying hardware, then everyone would be playing on PC.

I hope all three get new parts suppliers.

You think 400 dollars is for rich people? You are the poor people!
Yeah, "poor" people spend 1k on a phone rather than smart investments.

But for really poor people won't be able to just drop 400 on a Switch. Even the 300 Series S is a stretch.
