NINTENDO has announced a cheap new version of its popular handheld Switch console.
UK pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but the new model is $199.99 down from $299.99 in the USA – so there’s hope for a similar cut in the UK.

The new Nintendo Switch Lite could end up costing as much as £100 less than the £279.99 Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo’s price cut doesn’t come without a catch though: you can’t plug the Switch Lite into a television, unlike the original Switch.
That means you’ll only be able to use the Switch Lite as a portable handheld console.
The good news is that the Switch Lite supports all the handheld games that are available on the main Switch.

Nintendo does caveat this by saying: “The new device can play all games in the robust Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode, although some games will have restrictions.”
“Adding Nintendo Switch Lite to the lineup gives gamers more colour and price point options,” said Doug Bowser, who heads up Nintendo of America.
“Now consumers can choose the system that best suits how they like to play their favourite Nintendo Switch games.”
