Nintendo Co. plans to launch two new versions of its Switch gaming console as early as this summer, people familiar with the matter said, as the company seeks to sustain sales momentum for the product going into a crucial third year.

One version will have enhanced features targeted at avid videogamers, although it won't be as powerful as Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 4 Pro or Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox One X, according to parts suppliers and software developers for Nintendo who have early access to a prototype of the machine.

The other version is a cheaper option for casual gamers that Nintendo sees as a successor to its aging hand-held 3DS device, the suppliers and developers say.
Playing: Assassins Creed: Odyssey (PC), Fallout 4 (PC)

Same. Providing it has better battery life.

Nice, I was worried theyd do one or the other in terms of going pro or more portable, but here they are doing both. Awesome (hopefully).

Haha definitely have my eyes set for a new pro version, and hopefully a animal crossing bundle.

Lol at least Sony and Microsoft waited 4 years before they released their rehashes. Nintendo is doing it after 2 years...

And PS4 for example was launched in November 2016, 3 years after the original launched in November 2013. But like you mentioned, screw facts when you have an agenda.
