Here is my second round of reactions to this morning's reveal of the Nintendo Switch Lite.

Jul 2019

11 min

Well, Nintendo dropped the bomb this morning. The Switch Lite has been revealed. It looks cute but also a bit redundant, since it mimics the Switch's form factor but only a tad smaller and with built-in controller. Most importantly though, the thing doesn't Switch. Every smartphone you've ever owned had video out capabilities. So did the PSP. The new Switch does not. Let that sink in.
