If they dont call it a switch, that'll be marketed in a whole different way and also it will create a massive confusion as it only played "switch" games. Its Brand & Marketing 101. ¯\_( . __. )_/¯

indian, 10 Jul 2019WelpHave you owned portable consoles before?

I have great memories of my experiences with Gameboy advance SP and PSP, those were the times

Sadly Nintendo is not officially available in India and gaming prices are absurd.

To all of you complainers, keep in mind that this is only $199.99.

Why the hell does this gets launched in India, souch potential, I am a portable gaming fan

I had Gameboy Advance SP from 2006 to 2009 and PSP from 2004 to 11

Sadly Nintendo is not launching this ever in India, even if it gets launched pricing is atrocious bfor the games, fully priced plus taxes to boot along with currency conversion

Was never interested in hooking the Switch up to a TV so this is right up my alley.

How can it be called a Switch if it does not connect to a tv. To me it's just another nintendo handheld.

At least looks a lot better than gogle stadia for 10 bucks a month without games.

Nintendo is the only innovative company. Only if it connected to a TV it would be a steal.. (for me)

Perhaps this could appeal to those audiences who miss said console.

It won't connect to a TV. Having the same guts of the regular version, it shound't be a problem. This is a substitute to the 3DS, no more than that.
