    Finally got my Lite today, need to wait for my cousin to send me Links Awakening in the post. So I'm going to wait till it turns up before I open the console.

    Anyone else with the Lite got any recommendations for cases?

    Might go for the Orzly again but not sure.

    I wouldn't even research it, I'd go straight to Orzly for my accessories personally.

    Deciding whether to get the lite over the regular switch. I can see myself using it as a hand held console to be honest. The extra £70 can go towards a case and a game.

    Get the regular one and sell the dock.

    I love my Lite, although tried to play the Daemon X Machina demo today and found the text in menus and game is way too small to read. Admittedly I have very poor eyesight though.

    Everything else I've played on it has been fine though. It's quite a decent screen. It's only .5 inch smaller than the regular Switch screen.

    Its good as a handheld but honestly its still far better on a TV with a proper controller.

    Personally I find that the portability of it is great but for most games you will have a much better time on a large TV. Part of the fun of the proper Switch is playing on the TV and then just grabbing it from the dock and taking it somewhere else to continue where you left off.

    Im really in two minds about the Switch Vs Switch Lite.

    I do like the idea of a more sturdier and nimbler Switch....

    But its great to dock it and play on the big screen when Im home....

    Does it feel fairly smaller in the hand compared to the Switch original?

    If you can afford the regular switch, the ability to detach controllers for two player, play on your TV and have a rumble is not worth the downgrade.

    I don't feel it that much smaller in the hand.

    I play most Switch games on a tv with a pro pad - so the original was a no brainer. Best pad ever btw. I was unsure at first given the price, but going back to XB1 and PS4 pad after is like going back in time!

    It'd be nice to have both, but not a sensible use of money. Go for the original if you'll be playing at home at all and have access to a tv.

    It's just a shame that the Pro Controller has an atrocious d-pad. I have to use my PS4 controller for games like Celeste.

    Agreed. WHich is a shame. It's a good d-pad away from being the perfect pad. Perhaps Pro pad + 8bitdo is the perfect combo atm.
