Nintendo Could Have A New Switch Lite In The Works With Fixed Controllers

Despite the Nintendo Switch Lite being pretty much brand new, we have started hearing reports that some owners are already experiencing controller drift issues. In case you’re unfamiliar, this is where there are issues with the controller in which the system thinks the controller is moving even if the user is not touching it.

This can be annoying especially when playing certain games as it means that you are making moves you did not intend to make. However, it seems that Nintendo could already be working on a fix. In a recent FCC filing, it appears that Nintendo could have an updated version of the console in the works sporting the identification number BKEHDH002.

Nintendo Switch Lite Added To Lawsuit Over Controller Drift

Nintendo Switch Lite Added To Lawsuit Over Controller Drift

Earlier this year, it was reported that some Nintendo Switch owners were reporting that they were experiencing “drifting” with their Joy-Con controls. This led to a lawsuit over the problem. It was then recently revealed that there are some Nintendo Switch Lite owners who started experiencing the same issues.

Now it looks like the Switch Lite has since been added to the class-action lawsuit that was previously filed by Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith. According to the lawsuit, it alleged that Nintendo did not address the problem with the controllers which then found its way to the Switch Lite.

Nope, The Nintendo Switch Lite Cannot Connect To A Tv

Nope, The Nintendo Switch Lite Cannot Connect To A TV

When the Nintendo Switch Lite was announced in July, many seemed to react pretty positively to it. After all, it was a smaller, lighter, and more portable version of the Switch designed for gamers who wanted to game on the move. However, what if you decided that maybe you wanted to play it on your TV?

If you were hoping that maybe you could buy some kind of adapter or accessory that would allow the Switch Lite to output video to a TV, you might be disappointed to learn that will simply not be possible. This is according to a teardown of the Switch Lite’s hardware by YouTuber Jonathan Downey, where he concluded based on his findings that the console seems to lack hardware that would allow it to interpret and output any type of video.

Some Nintendo Switch Lite Owners Are Already Reporting Control Drift Issues

A couple of months ago, Nintendo officially announced the Nintendo Switch Lite. This is a cheaper and more portable version of the Switch, although for the most part it is still very much a Switch at its core. Unfortunately, it seems to have inherited some of the Switch’s problems as well.

In case you didn’t know, Switch owners have been reporting that they are experiencing “drift” issues with their Joy-Cons. What this means is that even when the player isn’t touching the control, the console will read it as the controls are moving which can interfere with gameplay. Now it seems that according to some user reports, the Switch Lite is experiencing similar issues as well.

Amazon Is Now Taking Pre-orders For The Nintendo Switch Lite

Amazon Is Now Taking Pre-Orders For The Nintendo Switch Lite

For gamers who might have been holding off on the Nintendo Switch, whether it be due to price or maybe concerns regarding battery life, you might have heard the news that Nintendo launched the Switch Lite back in July last month. If you were thinking about getting it, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the console.

The Switch Lite will be available in a gray, turqouise, or yellow finish where it will be priced at $200 for the console alone. It is expected to begin shipping out to customers on the 20th of September, so you will have to wait close to two months before you’ll be able to get your hands on it.

Nintendo Switch Lite Won't Support All Switch Games

Nintendo Switch Lite Won't Support All Switch Games

The other day, Nintendo officially announced the Nintendo Switch Lite. For all intents and purposes, the Switch Lite seemed identical to the Switch, except that it was smaller, lacked detachable controllers, could not connect to a TV, and was also cheaper. However, it seems that the differences between consoles is big enough where not all games will be supported.

For example, games that require the console to be connected to the TV will not be supported on the Switch Lite. Games that are also played in tabletop mode will not be supported either. Some games that require the gamers to have a Joy-Con will also not be supported, but in those instances, there are some that will work if players connect Joy-Con controllers to their console.

Nintendo Switch Saves Can Be Transferred To The Switch Lite

Nintendo Switch Saves Can Be Transferred To The Switch Lite

The good news is that if that’s you, you’ll be pleased to learn that you’ll be able to transfer your saved data between the consoles. This means that you can pick up where you left off with your games, so you can leave the Switch at home and take the Switch Lite with you when you travel. This was confirmed by Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser who said, “Yes, you will have the ability to transfer between devices, your gameplay experiences. More to come on there, but that is the intention.”

Bowser did not detail how exactly this would be achieved, but as he said, the company will reveal more information about that later. Perhaps Nintendo could be planning on introducing multidevice accounts, but we’ll have to wait and see. The Switch Lite, for those who missed the announcement, is a smaller and cheaper version of the Switch.

No, The Nintendo Switch Lite Won't Be Replacing The 3ds

No, The Nintendo Switch Lite Won't Be Replacing The 3DS

When Nintendo launched the Nintendo Switch console, it seemed as though they might be replacing the 3DS console. This is because the Switch offered up a portable gaming experience, new features, and new games, but Nintendo later explained why they were keeping the 3DS around.

So with the launch of the Switch Lite, which was smaller, lighter, and more portable, was this Nintendo’s subtle way of telling us that they plan on replacing the 3DS? The good news for 3DS gamers and fans is that no, it looks like the 3DS will be sticking around. According to Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser, “We’ll continue to support our 3DS family of systems as long as there is demand.”

The Nintendo Switch Lite Has Been Officially Announced

The Nintendo Switch Lite Has Been Officially Announced

For a while now we have been hearing rumors that Nintendo could have a new Nintendo Switch console in the works. The console in question has been referred to as the Nintendo Switch Mini, where its focus would be on being more affordable and also being more portable, where its Joy-Cons will not be removable.

For those who wouldn’t mind the idea of such a console, you’ll be pleased and excited to learn that Nintendo has since officially announced the Nintendo Switch Lite. This is pretty much as what the rumors were saying, where the console will be priced at $199, making it $100 cheaper than the regular Switch, and where its controllers cannot be removed. It also cannot be connected to your TV, so it looks like the emphasis is being placed on portability.

Pubg Mobile Lite Launched For Low-end Android Devices

PUBG Mobile Lite Launched For Low-End  Android Devices

Games like PUBG and Fortnite can be demanding in terms of hardware requirements due to the battle royale nature of the game which would require the device it’s played on to render a lot of graphics at the same time. This is why Fortnite for Android’s specs have essentially precluded it from lower-end Android phones.

Now just because you can’t afford a high-end smartphone, does that mean you should be punished for it by now being able to use certain apps or play certain games? That’s what publisher Tencent doesn’t want, and have since launched PUBG Mobile Lite. As the name would suggest, this is a “lighter” version of the game that has been designed for lower-end Android smartphones.

Xiaomi reportedly had two Android One smartphones in the pipeline and the company today unveiled both of them. The Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite are now official. As they are part of the Android One program, the devices will provide a stock Android 8.1 experience. Since many customers prefer a stock Android experience, the company might see considerable interest in these handsets.

They’re the successors to last year’s Mi A1 which itself was based on the Mi 5X that Xiaomi had kept limited to China. It’s a similar story this year as the Mi A2 has specs identical to those of the Mi 6X.
