so unless Switch Lite gets those things, its not up to 3DS standards

and nintendo lied. they said Switch would not be 3DS successor, but they make a portable only Switch anyways.

well on the plus side, as successor, that does unite the communities instead of divide them in the new generation, but still, Switch lacks things 3DS has. they are better off making a console only affordable Switch version instead of portable only overall.

A console only switch would def cost more, as it is expected to be a "pro" version of Switch with enhanced tech.

Not really. A console only switch wouldn’t have a portable screen. It doesn’t need to be as powerful as the Xbox one x or pro. Even doubling the power of the switch it would be around 300 dollars tops. So it would probably cost around the same if not slightly less.

It does have YouTube.
You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.

Neither of which I would ever use on my 3DS because they are total crap on it (and would be on a Switch as well). My laptop and my android phone both give me far superior ways to access both youtube and the internet. I buy gaming systems to play games, that's what they actually do well.

uh switch has an up to date YT and Hulu, with more apps probably in the future.

Meanwhile 3DS YT hasn't been updated in years, and the browser is ho-hum at best.

This, really. Why would Youtube and Internet browser would be defining features to pick a console when pretty much anyone has smartphones these days with superior quality?

Maybe 10 years ago it would've been nice but right now it's not exactly something someone should look for, it'd be like picking a disc console because it plays DVDs when now getting a separate player is so ridiculously cheap and easy.

Why buy a console only Switch if you're sacrificing a major feature with 0 gain?
