How To Choose A Nintendo Switch

There has been only one major revision of the Nintendo Switch so far, so deciding which console is right for you is a pretty straightforward binary choice. The original Nintendo Switch is the one most of us are familiar with, and it works more like a traditional gaming system (its unique design notwithstanding) in that it can be hooked up to your television and played with controllers — either the included Joy-Cons or the Pro Controller.

What makes the Nintendo Switch distinct from other consoles is that the system itself can be removed from its dock (the dock is what actually hooks up to and interfaces with your TV) and carried around like a portable device. This gives the Switch its unique versatility, as it allows you to play on your television at home or in handheld mode when you’re on the go.

Last year, Nintendo released a new Switch model called the Switch Lite. This is not a replacement for the standard Switch; instead, the Switch Lite is designed solely as a portable gaming system and is basically a scaled-down Switch tablet (minus the dock and detachable Joy-Cons) that functions much the same as the Switch in handheld mode, albeit with a smaller display and no motion controls or Bluetooth connectivity. It’s also worth noting that the lack of TV mode means the Lite is incompatible with a few games in the Switch library — this doesn’t really limit much, but it’s something to be aware of — as well as with Nintendo Labo kits.

Note that the Nintendo Switch Lite cannot be hooked up to a TV at all — it does not work with the Switch dock, it has no ports for a video connection of any kind, and there are no aftermarket adapters to do this (nor will there be, given the Switch Lite’s complete lack of video output capabilities). The Switch Lite is purely a handheld device. The advantages it has over the standard Switch are portability and price, as the Switch Lite retails for $200 while the original Switch is still retailing at $300.

Even at their normal prices, both the Switch and Switch Lite are pretty affordable, even more so if you score one of the above Memorial Day Nintendo Switch deals. Which of the two is right for you will boil down to your gaming preferences, namely whether you need the ability to play on a TV or if you’re perfectly happy with handheld-only gaming.
