A new Nintendo Switch handheld game consolewith twice as much battery life as the first generation. The new model costs the same as the original switch ($ 300), but according to Nintendo, the runtime is twice as high as the first edition. If you are wondering if you should buy the original switch, buy the new switch, or even buy the $ 200 Switch Lite, we have a handy guide to help you decide which switch to use is.
We have already decided that you will buy the new $ 300 switch. Note that he and the first generation switch may be sold side by side in stores and you do not want to buy the wrong one.
We do not know for sure that this will happen (although we've seen it on many other products), but on today's page of Nintendo, which now makes the purchase possible, the old and the new models will be displayed together. Your solution: Know what to look for to make sure you get the handheld you want.
