    The switch doesn't have that nintendo feeling the home screen is boring and quite compared to a 3ds/2ds it has that real nintendo feeling but the 2ds is cheaply looking and ugly too

    Go to ebay and get a refurbished New 2DS XL for 100 bucks from Nintendo with 1yr warranty, get a 64gb SD Card (more would be overkill), hack it using youtube and pirate 3DS and DS games....Profit!

    I play my entire steam library sat on my arse from my couch down stairs on my phone with a telescopic Bluetooth controller on my galaxy note 10 plus. Works just as well as the switch light which I also own does lol and I also have a 2ds xl. Infact in many ways it plays better because the games are running on my pc at maximum settings so obviously looks incredible visually. Playing the Witcher 3 just earlier with it upscaled at 4k 60fps lol

    there's literally no point of getting a nintendo switch lite, you can get a used nintendo switch for the same price or lower price than the nintendo switch lite

      It's sturdier. My brand-new Switch already had the tiniest amount of wiggle. (This is with respect to the Joy Cons attaching to the system.) However, I'd still argue that the Switch is the way to go, as you can play it on your TV.

    I choose 2DS XL anytime because it is built as a handheld from start. The clam shell protect the screen and analog stick when not use, but the Switch Lite need an extra casing. Also, games for the 2DS/3DS are design with big icons and fonts that are pleasing to the eye while I find texts are not easy readable in Switch port games, perhaps they are meant to be shown on monitors.

    Switch wins by these 3 games
    Breath of the wild
    Smash Bros ultimate
    Luigi's Mansion 3

      REDBIRD Hace 16 días +1

      Doshi everyone knows Switch is far better. But if someone wanted a 2ds and some good games. They’d spend less money. They are winning.

      @REDBIRD you just mentioned games that switch has sequels too that are better games, switch will continue to make more games vs 3ds is slowing stoping and I forgot to mention the biggest game switch has - Mario maker 2!

      REDBIRD Hace 16 días +1

      Doshi Yes it wins but 3DS has
      Ocarina of Time
      Smash 4
      Luigis Mansion
      Also really good games at much less cost.

    This wouldn't be a question with if Virtual Console was on Nintendo Switch... At least I think so, aside from the battery life. I mean, playing classic games on modern hardware is a pretty big deal. I know modding covers this but you can't tell me that the switch wouldn't almost print money with Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, and others like Metroid and Donkey Kong Country classic games on the system.

  • Gabriel von Ronsen

    Missing some information there, buddy. For starters, the 2DS XL is the cheaper version of the New 3DS XL, which is an enhanced version of the 3DS XL. Yeah, Nintendo's product labeling sucks. But you gotta get used to it if you intend to make informative videos such as this. Imagine a parent looking to get a 3DS for their kid and coming across videos that mention the New 3DS as being a regular 3DS. It's a risk and in the end, maybe that kid won't be able to play SNES games or titles such as Xenoblade Chronicles cuz their parent didn't get the New 3DS. Also, any 3DS model can run DS games in addition to 3DS games, so you have an extended library of all those old DS games. And the DS had some great titles released for it, so there's that.

    Nintendo also made it abundantly clear that the Switch Lite CANNOT run all of the games made for the Switch. Anything that requires tabletop mode won't work (and people tested it out). Anything that can be played on handheld mode (most games) work. But the thing is, saying everything that runs on the Switch will run on the Lite is just not accurate. You can connect multiple joy-cons to the Lite, but that doesn't mean Nintendo made games that only work on tabletop mode compatible with the model.

    Again, imagine a parent looking to get a Switch for their kid. Maybe they also want to get Nintendo Labo cuz that whole thing was designed with kids in mind. In comes a video such as this which claims every game that runs on the regular Switch will run on the Lite. Except Nintendo Labo requires the joy-cons to be used separately. From this video alone, I'd say this channel has a lot to improve.

    And oh, just one more thing: the 2DS XL is definitely not a good gift for a young kid. If you ever held any other 3DS model (besides the original 2DS), you'll immediately notice that the 2DS XL feels much cheaper. It's not as durable as the regular 3DS models. If you're an adult who's careful with your possessions, of course it's gonna last. But otherwise, that hinge is gonna snap pretty easily.

    To be honest, there’s not really any point of getting the Switch Lite if you already have a normal Switch. So if you don’t know whether to buy the Switch lite or 2DS XL just go for the 2DS XL

      @Maroon Kennedy
      Aside from the 3d effect which I absolutely adored
      The 3ds had a better line up of games, a wider user interface and numerous features, and it is just an all around more solid handheld.
      And aside from breath of the wild and maybe Odyssey (which I haven't played yet) I don't think the switch has any killer apps.
      The 3ds however, my library was filled with gold
      Flipnote3d, kid Icarus uprising, 1001 spikes, monster hunter 4 ultimate, Mario 3d land, I could go on
      The switch however
      Not many games that I care to play that aren't also on other consoles

    I have a purple new 2DS XL same one u have here and we have a Nintendo switch. A Nintendo Wii and a Xbox 360. I had an Xbox One S 1tb and sold it for the 2DS XL. I only played NHL on Xbox one anyway. So I got a 360 for 29 bux and nhl 14 for 2 bux both in mint condition! And I have just as much fun as I don’t play online! I will be getting a Xbox Two or Scarlet whenever it comes out.

    heres what ide recommend, if you havent really played many or any nintendo series like zelda before, get a switch, play BOTW and links awakening, if you find you end up loving botw like i did, look into getting a new 2 or 3DS XL, they have access to a LOT of zelda titles, oot and majoras mask, other zeldas released on the 3DS and older zeldas with virtual console, this is what happened with me, loved breath of the wild, wanted to play oot and MM, so i got a new 2DS XL, though i got links awakening before that and liked that to, i still need to play oot and MM cause i started with luigis mansion 1 and 2 cause 3s coming out soon but i still think it was worth it, you wont regret it
    oh, and when i say "get a switch", i mean a NORMAL switch, the lite isnt worth it, switch can do everything the lite can do and dock to be used like a home console, and being a little smaller doesnt impact the portability nearly as much as people would have you believe, paying more than the lite price for a regular switch is worth it

      Yep the reason why the ds overtook the gba is because the ds could play gba games so I think as long as the switch isn't backwards compatible with the 3ds I don't think the switch will ever fully overtake the 3ds
