Nintendo has a knack for utilizing their hardware to the best of its ability, in combination with some amazing artwork/artstyle to get that visual quality.

Yup, Nintendo's art direction is the best. Just played some Mario Galaxy with my kids last night, and I'm continually impressed by it. I've seen youtube videos of people playing it in emulators at 4k, and it scales amazing well too! Most Nintendo games do, really.

yeah theres a surprising level of detail with the Nintendo assets to begin with that you just don't see or notice on the consoles, but gets exposed once emulated at a higher resolution.

Any opinions on a Switch V1 vs a Switch V2? Black Friday is coming up and I think i'll be picking up a switch at this time...but the upcoming MK8 + Switch bundle is going to be bundled with the Switch v1 (its basically a recycled last years switch bundle).

I can't see it being any different to me one way or another, but I think I would prefer the better battery life and the more efficient/cooler running console docked.

It'll be a much easier decision if this was the theoretical Switch Pro vs a Switch V1 or V2.

If youre ever thinking about docking it(playing it on a tv) get OG switch. If not go with the new one.

Get the original switch, not the lite. That way if you get joycon drift you aren't totally ****ed and can replace them.

Do they still sell the v1?

As far as I know the standalone units have all been replaced with the V2, but it seems like the bundles still come with the v1 (or at least this upcoming MK8 bundle does....)
Aside from the bundle I think any v1 units that get sold are just leftover inventory (also seems to be higher priced for some reason....)

Didnt they stop manufacturing V1s because of piracy? Id wager there are basically no new ones out there. Probably a few on the secondhand front.

Personally I'd probably prefer trying to get a newer Switch (non-lite version) for the better battery life.

Unless you'll mainly be playing with it docked, then battery life wont really matter.

I'll probably just jump on the bundle and not think too hard about the v1 vs v2 switch revisions. Its going to be docked most of the time so im not going to benefit from any extra battery life. Plus I highly doubt i'll have any games with heavy graphics (that's what my PC will be for)

The switch is expensive so saving some cash in anyway helps more than extra battery life.

I have finally joined the Bandwagon! Looking forward to all the RPG's and the new stuff in 2020.

Got me a Switch v2. There was a nice early black Friday deal at a store that had the standalone Switch including a $125 gift card

So for the same cost as the black Friday bundle (switch v1 + MK8) I got the Switch V2 and I can use the Gift Card for MK8 (or any game), and still end up with $45 for anything else in the store (Most games are 80 bux here in Canadia…..)

1 early christmas present ready wont open till then

When docked for play on a TV I doubt there's much difference between Switch v1 and v2.

Main improvement is battery life in handheld mode.

V2 runs on a die shrunk processor. It results in cooler running temperatures and more efficient operation for better battery life.
There is no real performance gains to be had. Its basically a more efficient running revision of the switch.

Theres also mention that the screen on the unit itself is a bit different, some prefer the V1 screen, others prefer V2.

If you play on TV it makes no real difference which model to get. If you see yourself playing in handheld mode a lot then its better to get the v2.
If you don't have a switch, might as well just get v2 since its the one that's on store shelves (unless going used or getting the MK8 bundle)

Yeah just get V2, plus once you have it I doubt you'll never not use it in Handheld.

Not sure about Sasquach's gaming habits but I never play Switch in handheld. I just physically can't play games in handheld mode for very long. I start getting annoying discomfort in my hands and neck after 20 minutes.

Not to mention I just never find time to play games outside the home, so why not always play on the big screen?

I've used the Wii-U tablet in off-TV mode and I thought it was a wicked feature the few times it was utilized. I couldn't really go farther than wireless controller distance though because...well its a wireless controller that'll lose connectivity with the console.

Im still going to be using it 98% of the time docked though. I can see myself using it in handheld mode for the same reason I used the wii-U in off-TV mode. To play a game whiel the significant other is watching TV or vice versa. Plus it'll be much easier to take it to a friends house. Taking the Wii-U wasn't too bad since the console isn't very big but Switch will have a huge advantage in that regard.

Well I mean, like others have implied if you have the choice of v1 or v2 there's no reason not to just get the v2 no matter your gaming habits.

Were you maybe confused here?

Maybe I'm confused but I don't think Sasquach was asking about the portable one...?

I just looked at my Switch home screen and realized I have to start finishing all these games I have been buying when the go on mega-sales. It is almost as bad as the Steam sales for me. Cool game is on sale and I buy it to play later and since I am not yet retired later is not here yet. lol

This is like a 10 years ago problem for me. Back then I was stupidly doing the same thing.

Nowadays I only buy games when I'm ready to play them. Don't worry they're not going anywhere and will only get cheaper and more patched up.

Some games do go, because of licenses etc.

Maybe someone else is using the big screen, or I want to play in bed.

Plus I use a grip when I play switch in handheld anyway.
