        I have drift on my Switch and I don’t use it a ton and take care of it. If it happened on a lite I’d be pissed.

          Big reason I’m so hesitant in buying one :/

          •  

            @justausername: Another thing that I've also thought of is how the value of the dock that comes with the standard switch. A dock is worth just over $100 brand new and from my knowledge isn't essential for using your switch. So what I was thinking is someone could potentially buy a standard Nintendo Switch on sale for roughly $350, then sell the dock and you've got what is basically a Nintendo Lite except with removable controls for almost the same price as the inferior version.

            •  

              @DecoAus: I was under the impression the dock is separate from the switch. You pay for a dock on top of it.

                @w37hsyea: Nah, regular switches still come with the dock. The lites don't but don't have compatibility either.

          Nintendo fixed the drift on my 2 year old joycons without charge after I filled out their support form. No questions asked.

          It did take a couple of weeks to get them back and i had to pay to ship it though.

          •  

            @DealsyMcDealsalot: That is a bit cheap with the shipping part. I have had a PS3 back in the day that stopped reading discs and I got in contact with Sony about warranty and they sent me a paid postage slip that I had to print out and then got a brand new console in return.

            •  

              @mdogxxx: Yep, my 360 had the red ring of death a couple of times and Microsoft paid for shipping. Was also long out of warranty as well.

          •  

            @DealsyMcDealsalot: That's good to know. I've got a couple of drifting Joycons.

        •  

          Just get it fixed. They will do it if you ask.

        •  

          then make Nintendo fix it

    This is better than the regular console imo

      Why?

        People say it's a much better size and weight for handheld usage, which is completely fair I think. All depends on how you are going to use it I suppose.

      •  

        it's comfortable in your hands, the buttons don't click, the screen looks sharper, there's a dpad

    One of the better deals of the year. Well done. Especially leading up to Xmas. Now I wonder how bad stock levels will be…

    Optimization with cashreward or egift card?

    While it's not relevant to the bargain I suppose, I'm so glad I waited for the Lite, which I bought on release. Literally the perfect gaming unit who has something already hooked up to the telly. At this price you'd be bananas not to.

  •  

    wonder what firmware it is

      Don't believe any Lites have hackable firmware?

    Good deal is to find a cheap original ps4 and trade it in with two games (fifa 15 and 16 for $2 each) at EBgames towards a switch. I got $265 trade in for one i bought for $99

    •  

      How do you know what they value trade ins at?

      • +1 vote

        Because i asked them and i did it. They have a promo in their internal systems for a ps4 and 2 games towards a switch

    Might be possibe to use eBay code if it listed in their eBay store

    Keep in mind the Switch Lite does not have motion sensor so games that require motion controls such as Mario Party will not be able to be played properly on Lite unless you're willing to fork out another ~$100 for a pair of external Joy-Cons and a charger for them.

    Also you won't be able to enjoy 2 player local co-op on the Lite unless you buy extra Joy-Cons.

  •  

    I figured this was a price error…. seems too cheap for goodguys..

    •  

      Yeah, this has to be pricing error if you look at PS4, Xbox and Switch pricing

    Damnit! I literally just bought 2x grey Lites this week for full price from JB.

    I remember a previous thread where i said i would wait until the switch is $200 and then buy it. All the ozmorons jumped on the bandwagon and negged the hell out of me. I wonder where they are now.

      "i think in 10 years the price will drop to $200" was a positive 11 votes comment in that thread. 2029 here we come!

      Firstly, you posted that on a switch thread, not switch lite

      Secondly this still isn’t $200

      Thirdly…… LOL that it clearly upset you that much. Just lol.

      Lites are unhackable, and will remain so for a foreseeable future. Unfortunate but true.

    Lite cannot connect to TV. No point

    Besides access to the Nintendo store and Nintendo games what else can you dodo the switch lite.

    Can you browse ozbargain, YouTube, Netflix or watch videos in a browser?

    If it is capable of gaming only it might not pass my limited space check in my every day carry.

    If I can listen to music while not gaming however using YouTube music, Google play music, Spotify, soundcloud or even normal YouTube then I might buy.

      I too want to know what else the switch does, can it accept myki cards and be used to pay toll roads?

        Lol hey if it can replace my opal card we might have a winner.

    •  

      Totally agree. I told the staff at jbhi that if the switch lite couldn't do my Xmas shopping or tax returns for me, it wasn't worth more than $100.

        Personally I want mine to tell me everything will be ok at night and tuck me in bed and close the light.

        And make me breakfast in the morning.

    I sold my Switch 2019 model and bought a $250 Lite and don’t regret it at all. I love handhelds and this thing is such a better handheld than the bulky and wobbly original Switch. I love it.

    •  

      Let us know when it starts drifting. Mine started after 250 hours of use.

    •  

      do you buy games just for switch lite?
      (might be obvious question for some, looking to buy one for kids who dont have switch, nfi about these)

      •  

        They are the same games as for the regular switch console - is this what you mean?

        •  

          thanks, yea if there was games just for switch lite. which take it switch games go on lite

  • -3 votes

    while it's nice to have everything, a Lite is a bit pointless. you can't customise the joycons like the original. And if you want to play it on the road, take the original out and just bring a power bank or something. and then back at home, you can dock it and play it on the big screen. it's just gimmicks.
