Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Switch Lite. Which one suits you best?

A simple guide for you to make the best decision
Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Switch Lite
There were months of rumors , but Nintendo introduced the Switch Lite , a new version of the Switch , and now the question for those who are planning to acquire the Big N console is which version to buy?

To guide you in this regard, we have prepared a simple comparative with the aim of helping those who have this dilemma, since both versions may start from the same technology, but meet different needs . Let's see:

1. Play at home or play alone on a laptop

The normal Nintendo Switch is a hybrid console. This means that it can be played on the screen -like a usual home console- and in portable mode , to be played anywhere -as if it were a Nintendo 3DS.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is based on normal Switch technology, but its great difference is that it can NOT be played on the home screen, that is, it is designed to be played ONLY on a laptop .

It is the most important differentiator, because if the idea is to buy a Switch to enjoy your games in the company of several people in a room, or wherever there is a screen, it will be useless to buy the Lite version.

But for those people who play more on a laptop than on a home console, the Switch Lite is definitely the option .

2. Hardware and technology

The normal Nintendo Switch consists of several pieces of hardware: the console (where the touch screen is also located), the dock (to shoot the image on a screen) and the Joy-Con , which can be assembled to form a single size control average, or used separately as two miniature controls for two people to enjoy the game at the same time. Additionally, the Joy-Con vibrates and has motion sensors 

The Nintendo Switch Lite is just a piece of hardware, that is, the screen and controls are integrated into the console, which makes it a portable and experience platform that is more individual than collective. Also, it does not vibrate or have motion sensors .

3. Price

The regular Nintendo Switch , with no games included, has a list cost of $ 299.99 .

The Nintendo Switch Lite , with no games included, has a list cost of $ 199.99 .

4. Games

The same gallery of games as the regular Nintendo Switch will be available on the Nintendo Switch Lite.

The only thing to consider is that in order to play titles that require motion sensors such as 1-2 Switch on Switch Lite , additional Joy-Con will be required .

5. Conclusions

The full experience is definitely with the normal Switch . It has a higher cost , but in exchange it can be played at home, on a laptop and with all the available technology.

Switch Lite is cheaper , but can only be played on a laptop and doesn't have all the available technology.
